Semi Precious Weapons, The TVD First Date

“Wow. I can’t really tell what my first memory of vinyl was, but the earliest memory I have is of me singing a song I wrote inspired by Fraggle Rock.”

“As a kid our entire basement was filled with nothing but a model train and probably 400 records. My dad had a jukebox upstairs that played nothing but 45s. When I was really young, I listened to a Tommy James and the Shondells record on repeat until I discovered my dad’s copy of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours—both albums still really inspire me.

We have a pretty awesome vinyl collection at our band house that includes everything from 60’s surf, noise records like Red Horse, Judy Garland Live From Carnegie Hall, and a ton of ’70s rock records that I stole from my dad.

We’re hoping to release our new album on vinyl, not only because it sounds so beautiful but because of the iconic visual aspect.

It just feels more important somehow.”
Justin Tranter, vocals
