'LAST RIGHTS' RELEASED ON DOUBLE VINYL


After being voted on by the fans over at Litany.net, Nettwerk has decided to release a double vinyl of 'Last Rights' on November 10, 2009. Pre-orders are now being taken by Amazon.com. No indication as to what the exact cover art will be, but it's highly doubtful Jim "I, Braineater" Cummins' original masterpiece for this album will be overlooked.

SPECIAL NOTE: This release still does not include the infamous "Track 10" better known as "Left Hand Shake" for reasons unknown.

MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

A public message was released concerning what's going on with Skinny Puppy's upcoming album. Their manager, Jeff, issued this statement:

I just wanted to attempt to make everyone aware of the current situation that Skinny Puppy is in. Due to the fact that SPV filed for insolvency earlier in the year the new Skinny Puppy LP will not be out in time for the tour. We have been in discussion with SPV and had hoped to find a solution to the mess they have put us in, but it looks as though things will not get sorted out until years end. We have meetings set with them in the near future and I hope to be able to let everyone know that things will be back on track soon. Songs have been recorded and artwork has been worked on and once we resolve the issues we have with SPV we will release them.

None of the issues with SPV will jeopardize this tour. The band is really excited to get out and play and we think this is going to be a tour to remember!!

Everybody in the Puppy camp wants to let you know that we always appreciate the support and we are looking forward to the "In Solvent See Tour" as much as any tour we have ever done.

We hope to see you all out there

Be good
Jeff

'REPO!' ON DVD AND BLU-RAY TODAY!!


'Repo! The Genetic Opera' on Blu-Ray and DVD in stores TODAY! If you haven't already pre-ordered it, trek on down to your local movie shop and grab your copy.

If you're still on the fence, Fangoria Magazine has posted an excellent review of both the DVD and B-Ray versions.

Remember: the more copies that are sold, the better chance we have of getting an uncut, extended version in the future—yes, there's still more footage. So let's show Ogre, Terrance Zdunich, and Darren Bousman and the entire 'Repo!' gang that we appreciate all their efforts in bringing us this most excellent screenplay and movie!
