See What’s Available for Record Store Day’s 2018 Black Friday Promotion
Record Store Day has done a great job in bringing music lovers back to record stores during the spring of each year, and in recent years they've expanded the promotion to the biggest shopping day of the year -- Black Friday. With November fast approaching, Record Store Day organizers have just revealed their list of specialty items that will be available on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Though not as extensive as the spring Record Store Day selection, there is still plenty to attract music lovers and we've compiled a listing of some of the top hard rock and metal selections below.
Among the highlights are live releases from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees Rage Against the Machine, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Ramones and Alice Cooper, metal legends Anthrax and Dio and a Live 2018 recording featuring the Jeff Gutt-led lineup of Stone Temple Pilots.
Record Store Day's Black Friday promotion also has a lot of Black Friday "First" releases, with Guns N' Roses, Smashing Pumpkins and Chris Cornell dropping new music (or previously unreleased recordings) first through record stores before they arrive to a wider audience. Tom Morello is also offering the instrumentals from his The Atlas Underground album.
