Relapse Records will be celebrating their 25th anniversary next year and to mark the occasion the label will be reissuing several past releases on vinyl. Founder Matt Jacobson had the following to say about the jubilee:
“In 1990 I started Relapse as a teenager in my parents’ basement. It was a dream with a simple mission: to share the music that I was so passionate about with as many people as possible. Over the course of 25 years we have had the honor of working with a diverse array of amazing artists and releasing a vast catalog of incredible records that includes numerous influential and genre defining albums. We are very proud that we have been able to bring the music that we love to a global audience.”
Regarding the vinyl reissues, the label offered the following:
First and foremost, Relapse will be reissuing a significant amount of classic and underground titles from throughout the label’s history on deluxe vinyl. Albums from artists like Mastodon, Nile, Dillinger Escape Plan, Neurosis, Amorphis, Incantation, Human Remains, and many many more will get the deluxe reissue treatment after being long out-of-print or never-before-available on wax. Additionally, a special, super limited silver colored vinyl of every record released/reissued in 2015 will be made available exclusively from www.relapse.com.
