Akron/Family Announces "Secret Release" for Record Store Day
Akron/Family has announced a special “secret release” for Record Store Day tomorrow. The double vinyl will include tracks taken from the six alternate versions of the band’s new album that leaked onto the internet in recent months. In advance of the band’s latest album release, it leaked six alternate versions of the record as teasers. This led to a series of message board and blog disputes over which was the true version. The 6 “noise art” versions are distinctly different from the album itself, mixing abstract sounds with portions of the songs on the record. The alternate versions feature contributions from Greg Davis, Fletcher Kaufman, Phil Cook and Greg Lawson.
