War Hungry

Almost two years ago I bought a compilation LP on Six Feet Under Records called 'Striving Higher' (see THIS POST). It was a good way to force myself to listen to some new bands. At the end of my blog entry on that record, I wrote this:

My stand out favourite, however, is the song by War Hungry. Why did I never listen to this band before? If this song is anything to go by this could be my new favourite band.

Back then I tried to get a copy of the LP, but it was sold out and I couldn't find one anywhere. Well, finally almost two years later, I finally managed ot get a copy of the bloody thing.

Even though I only just picked up the plastic disc, I downloaded these songs nearly two years ago & it was one of my most listened to records in 2012. It didn't make my end year list because I didn't have the vinyl, but if I had have had it then it certainly would have been up there. It's a great record and every household should have one.

I have no idea on pressing info for this thing. As well as the white I've also seen a red vinyl copy and one with a release show sleeve on black. Anyone know what the deal is?

Oh and a second press on clear green out of 503 copies.

Such a fantastic record. I think there is a new one on the horizon.

Looks like Dave is selling those other versions on eBay including the test press...
