Fadeaway Records returns after a 10 year silence with a massive 3 LP compilation to benefit cancer research.
It has been a long time since Fadeaway Records last released an album. But after a decade long hiatus the label is back, and they’re coming back in a big way. On February 25th, Fadeaway Records will be releasing, Friends, a giant 3 LP release with all of the proceeds going directly toward cancer research charities. It’s the first step that the label is making as they return as a not for profit label.
To help them get back into the swing of things, Fadeaway Records have gathered rare and unreleased songs from a bunch of their musically inclined buddies and will feature these songs on Friends. The first two records of the compilation will have unreleased material from a number of different bands. The third record will showcase a hand-picked collection of the top selections from Michael Dubin’s—one of the Fadeaway Record leaders—library of home recordings.
An initial pre-order was made available on December 30th of last year and quickly sold out. This first pressing included 400 copies with a red and white A/B swirl with a black splatter. An additional 100 copies were pressed on clear vinyl with red, white and black splatter for friends and family of the label.
Luckily for those who were not able to pick up a copy on the first pre-order, Fadeaway Records released another preorder for a second pressing. This additional pressing will feature 500 copies on a milky clear vinyl, with red, blue, and yellow splatter. On top of that, add another 100 copies on black, blue, and white with heavy splatter. These will be randomly included to orders of the second pressing.
Artists slated to appear on the record include Saves the Day, Brand New, Kevin Devine, and Motion City Soundtrack. All in all, the release will feature over 35 different songs.
Remaining copies of the second preorder are still available but going fast. Head over to Fadeaway Records website to place orders now!
