Record Store Day

With the 2015 installment of Record Store Day just a little more than a month away, the official exclusive-release lists for both the U.S. and U.K. installments have been made public, with sure-to-be-pricey vinyl pressings coming from a host of ’80s college-rock grads.

Depending on what continent you’re on — or regardless, since there is much overlap of the two lists — there are high-profile releases coming from The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Tears For Fears, Ministry, The Dead Milkmen, Daniel Ash, Social Distortion, Public Image Ltd., Simple Minds, Killing Joke, Violent Femmes and more.

See the highlights below, plus links to the full lists.
