It's a go!!

After winning the vote against two other titles, Run Out Groove Records (part of Warner Music Group) is putting a new Idle Race specialty LP up for pre-orders!  They're pressing it on 180g clear vinyl (a change from the previous announcement) with new artwork and liner notes.

Run Out Groove:
· ROG curated a new collection of Idle Race’s best Liberty-era tracks.

· Pressed on 180g clear vinyl and comes in a single pocket tip-on jacket with new artwork and liner notes.

· Limited and individually numbered based on pre-orders

You only have a short time to order online or you'll have to chance finding one in a record store.  The track list:
