paint it black "new lexicon" lp

I was stoked we got the chance to release this. Licensed from Jade Tree.

Pressing summary:
1st press: 21 test presses, 120 blue/green swirl, 270 black, 1180 white
2nd press: 525 green, 1030 blue


We asked for the usual 20 test presses. When putting the covers and vinyl together, we found that we had 21. We had already printed the test press covers that say " / 20" on the front. So the 21st test press is numbered "21 / 20". All vinyl B-side labels are stamped with a BLACK Rivalry stamp. Some test pressings are personalized with a hand written name and/or message on the label.

B-side label is stamped with a BLACK Rivalry stamp.

120 on BLUE/GREEN SWIRL VINYL (Friends / Pre-Order)

120 copies were pressed on BLUE/GREEN SWIRL vinyl. They turned out slick and really contrast with the layout well. A few lucky pre-orders got one of these, while the rest were only available to friends of the band and/or Rivalry.

270 on BLACK VINYL (Pre-order)

270 were pressed on BLACK vinyl and were only available by pre-ordering directly from These sold out very quickly and were strictly first come, first served. Why BLACK vinyl as a limited color? C'mon now, the band is named Paint It BLACK (not to mention the majority of the layout is black)!


1180 were pressed on WHITE vinyl. Why WHITE vinyl? Well, it's the opposite of BLACK vinyl... Duh.



525 were pressed on GREEN vinyl for the 2nd pressing.

1030 on BLUE VINYL - 250 Euro Tour Cover, 780 Regular Cover

A total of 1030 were pressed on BLUE vinyl for the 2nd pressing. 780 have the regular cover and 250 have a screen printed European Tour cover numbered out of 250 (see below).

250 of the BLUE vinyl have a screen printed European Tour 2008 cover numbered out of 250.
