News & Notes

For Record Store Day 2013, we are releasing The Wedding Present. "2 Chansons" 7", a 2-track vinyl single on 20 April 2013.  You can order it here.

David Gedge likes to give himself a challenge, so for Record Store Day 2012 he decided to release an EP... of not just four songs, but of four songs sung in French. Why not? A 'Twitter' campaign was launched to find a translator and Marie Causse, who also translates television shows like ‘The Family Guy’ for French TV was happy to help. This is an American vinyl release of two of those songs, 'Metal Men' and 'End Credits'.

The songs [recorded in the same session as the recently released album Valentina] would sound magnificent in any language.  ‘Metal Men’ is the surprise on the disc with a danceable beat and is about as perfect as a punk-pop song can be! A vignette gives you a slight breather before ‘End Credits’ pounds in with its heart beating double drummer rhythm… this time about the end of a love affair.

The sleeve for this American 7" version was designed and screenprinted by Mike Turner of Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records.  Limited edition of 500 copies.

Since this is a Record Store Day Record, preorders will ship on April 20, 2013.

Our newest release, The Wedding Present's "Valentina", will be coming out on vinyl in the US in late March.  The Wedding Present’s eighth studio album, "Valentina", comes four years after 2008’s critically acclaimed El Rey. Recorded in the wilds of France, the suburbs of Los Angeles and the lanes of Brighton, it shimmers with near perfection.

If you preorder, you can have yours shipped to you as soon as they get to us from the plant.  As always, the LP includes a digital download of the music for your mobile convenience.  There are two types of preorder for this record:
