Today it was announced that the UNFD Vinyl Club will be launching to reward the most loyal UNFD fans. The Vinyl Club is an invite only society for the most hardcore vinyl collectors around the world where members will be given access to exclusive pressings of titles. A new vinyl variant will be released each month and each run will be strictly limited to 100 units. The idea of a UNFD Vinyl Club has been festering for well over a year now with the label secretly pressing an extra 100 units of limited edition variants throughout 2016. In 2017, every release will have a Vinyl Club exclusive available and every so often, rare UNFD test presses will be made exclusively available to Vinyl Club members.
Alongside the Vinyl Club announcement, a mini-documentary highlighting the vinyl culture at UNFD was also released. It features members of Northlane, In Hearts Wake, Hellions and Bodyjar. Check out On The Record – A Documentary About UNFD Vinyl below.
The idea for UNFD Vinyl Club is borne out of the love of the sound, look and feel of vinyl. Most of the staff and bands on the label grew up avid collectors of the format, which is reflected in the products UNFD produce. Bands like Northlane and In Hearts Wake have huge vinyl followings, and UNFD Vinyl Club is one more way to reward their loyalty.
