killing the dream - "self titled" 7"/mcd

Released in April of 2004, this was the first Rival release to be released on vinyl format.

Pressing summary:
- MCD (still in press)
1st press: 20 test presses, 100 on yellow w/rec release inserts, 300 on "grey" (turned out mostly black), 600 on clear

20 TEST PRESSES, hand numbered with alternate cover

Test pressings have an alternate cover and are hand-numbered out of 20 on the record's label and also on the back of the cover. Some test pressings are personalized if they were given away as gifts or to friends.

100 YELLOW VINYL w/rec release inserts - 73 SOLID YELLOW, 20 LIGHT YELLOW, 6 YELLOW/WHITE swirl, 1 YELLOW/BLACK swirl

There were a total of 100 pressed on yellow vinyl, 73 of which came out looking like your standard solid banana yellow vinyl (many have a little bit of white in them). There were a few abnormalities, which can be seen below.

Yellow vinyl copies were available at Killing The Dream's record release show on April 4th, 2004. Unfortunately, Eli (their singer) got really sick and they were unable to play. There is a special insert in each of the record release 7"s thanking everyone for coming and explaining why they couldn't play.

There were a total of 100 pressed on yellow vinyl, 20 of which came out looking like a very light yellow, almost cream looking color.

There were a total of 100 pressed on yellow vinyl, 6 of which came out looking more like translucent yellow with white milky streaks in it. The scan doesn't show it very accurately, but the yellow on these copies is partially transparent, with really solid white swirls in it. These copies came out looking really awesome.

This is one of a kind. One copy came out looking like this when they switched the colors in the machine from yellow to "grey".

300 GREY VINYL - 294 "CHARCOAL GREY" (really just black w/few white streaks), 6 on GREY MARBLE

We ordered 300 on grey marble vinyl (I'm sure most of you know the "grey" we were going for), but what we got was basically just BLACK vinyl, with a little white here and there. 294 of the 300 either look plain black or black with a little white in it (creating a look closer to a "charcoal grey").

We ordered 300 on grey marble vinyl, and only 6 of the 300 actually came out looking even close to the grey marble we were hoping for. These 6, combined with the 294 mentioned above round out the 300 on "grey".

600 CLEAR VINYL

600 were pressed on clear vinyl, some on this true clear vinyl, and some on a more green-tinted clear vinyl. Who knows how many of the 600 were pressed of each, but it seemed to be about half and half.

600 were pressed on clear vinyl. They started off pressing with regular clear vinyl (above), but they ran out, so they started pressing on "coke bottle clear" (an actual "color" you can choose at pressing plants, it is clear with a sort of green tint to it) to finish off the run. Who knows how many of the 600 were pressed of each, but it seemed to be about half and half.
