Bassist Bryan Bassett and drummer Roger Earl were ecstatic when they discussed the album’s upcoming vinyl re-issue.

“A couple things I love about new vinyl releases is the re-emergence of an old art form – I.E. album cover art and the return of high-quality analog audio played through great old stereos being pulled from the garage and resurrected,” Basset said.

Earl shared Bassett’s sentiment, adding that he appreciated having liner notes and photos to go with the experience.

“It’s black, it’s shiny, it’s beautiful and some really beautiful noises come out of it!,” Earl said.  “And you can actually read the liner notes and see the photos!”

Under The Influence was originally released this past June. Since its release, the record has gone on to become the band’s most successful record to date.  It debuted at #17 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums Chart and #40 on the magazine’s Independent Albums Chart.

The record’s track listing is noted below.
