Bad Timing Records - Mansions – New Best Friends 12"

Mansions New Best Friends


AVAILABLE NOW: This release will be one of the titles that is restocked as part of our 2020 Vault Release. The 2020 Vault Release will go on sale at 2pm EST on Tuesday, May 5th. Please note that the units we are releasing in this process have been moved back and forth across different warehouses, distributors and BTR headquarters. Some may have visible signs of damage, such as small splits in jackets -- but we have visually checked each unit to get rid of the ones we view as unacceptable. We will not be able to issue refunds or accept returns on sales from these units except in extreme circumstances, so please consider this before purchasing.

For this record, the units returning to stock will be across both first-press variants and the second press variants. None of it will include the 7" that was previously available.

BTR-005 and BTR-006 are two releases from one of our favorite bands, Mansions. The Mike Sapone-produced New Best Friends comes back to vinyl with all-new alternative artwork designed by Mansions bassist Robin Dove, featuring frontman Chris Browder's handwriting. In addition, we've got a never-before-pressed 7” (The Biggest Lie b/w Tangerine). These two tracks were on a four-song promo EP that originally came out before NBF but was never put to vinyl.

We would like to thank our friends at Doghouse Records, who originally released this awesome album, for partnering with us for this release.
