See that up there? That’s the one sided screen printed 10″ of Springfield indie/emo band Park‘s first new material in eight years. The band has just announced the three song 10″ will be released on Bad Timing Records and will come with a 16 page booklet to accompany the release. The full EP will be released on July 15th. On top of all of that Park released on song, “Lepus Fugam” to the world yesterday through the site Jacobtherabbit.com. You can also stream the song on the youtube player embedded below. The song is one of three from the upcoming Jacob The Rabbit 10″. You can pre-order the record or digital download from that site. Also be on the lookout in the near future for the Jacob The Rabbit 10″ at Dumb Records. From Bad Timing’s website:
Almost a year later, we’re happy to announce that we will release Park’s first new music since 2006, a three-song EP called Jacob The Rabbit, on 10″ vinyl on July 15, 2014. Right now, you can check out a teaser video of the EP and get familiarized with the hub for all information about this release on JacobTheRabbit.com.
Jacob The Rabbit is a concept EP which serves as a prelude to a full-length that Park is working on now. It’s based on a story written by frontman Ladd Mitchell. To do this release the right way, we knew we’d have to go all out–we put together what we think is some pretty killer packaging.
The one-sided 10″ vinyl–limited to 1,000 units on four variants–is packaged in a matte jacket and features a screenprint of the logos associated with the story on the B-side. Also in the jacket is a 16-page 7″ booklet that contains the story, illustrations, lyrics, credits and more. We LOVE this EP, and we really hope you guys will, too–check out some photos below!
