more ram-charged boogaloo, sleazy psychedelia and Chicano garage rock.
In The Red records is gearing up for
the new album by releasing a series of oddball limited edition vinyl-only records by the band. The first of these
releases dropped this week in the form of the “Five Greasy Pieces” subscription series. This is a very limited edition

will be issuing one of these a month. The fifth and final single in the series will come with a handsome box in which
all five will be housed. The only way to obtain these singles is to buy a subscription on the In The Red website. In
March In The Red will be issuing a live LP by the band titled 
Live At The Promwhich will be
another vinyl-only limited edition release available exclusively online.
