TVD Vinyl Giveaway: SOJA, Amid the Noise and Haste

“We were always into counterculture music. But reggae was the one the spoke for the little guy. I don’t know… it’s attractive. You got all your [other genres] here, and then you have reggae, which talks about people starving, people in the dark. This guy, Bob Marley, was not just talking about what goes on in his neighborhood, but he was talking about what’s going on in the world. We love that.”

In 2012 we chatted with SOJA’s main man Jacob Hemphill for a bit of insight into the Arlington, Virgina band’s roots reggae awareness, and in 2014 all is well with the band—and that includes a brand new, full-length release.

“I collect old reggae records and put them all over my house. I’ve got Peter Tosh’s Mystic Man, Bush Doctor, and some of his stuff after Bob Marley died. I also have Columbia Records [age] Peter Tosh. I have an old 45 of Marley’s “Ambush in the Night.” I own a few,” Hemphill told us at the time.

SOJA are releasing a brand new album this month—and it’s on gold vinyl to add to Jacob’s expanding record collection. Amid the Noise and Haste hits store shelves August 12th and we’ve got an exclusive look at the pressing of the glorious gold LP coming into being at Nashville’s United Record Pressing. If there ever was such a thing as vinyl porn, this is it.

If you’re a SOJA fan—and a vinyl enthusiast—their gold-colored LP is a must-own, and we’ve got a copy to give away to one of you.

To win, simply leave us a comment with your favorite reggae LP from your own record collection. (We happen to be partial to Steel Pulse’s True Democracy over here at TVD HQ.) One winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen on release day, Tuesday, August 12.

You can pre-order the LP here.
