*PRE-ORDER* Ramallah - The Last Gasp of Street Rock N' Roll LP
This item is scheduled to ship on 7/17. Any items ordered in conjunction with this record will be held until the release date. However, if the records arrive early then they will ship early. Thank you.
Ramallah – from Nowhere – was founded in 2003 as a solo project departure by “White Trash” Rob Lind of Blood for Blood notoriety. They released an EP on Bridge 9 Records, a full length on I Scream Records and logged extensive worldwide touring. Their early sound ranged from skull-crushing hardcore to pop songs. The early era of the band came to an end in 2007 due to Lind’s renowned drug issues.
Ramallah resurfaced in 2015 with the Back from the Land of Nod EP on State Line Records. The songs were a soundtrack to horrific storytelling of the dark underbelly of drug abuse by Lind. These songs left the Ramallah fanbase with no idea of what was to come with The Last Gasp of Street Rock N’ Roll.
Lind teamed with Boston-area producer and guitar virtuoso, Jason Eick and a new team of musicians to bring this latest chapter to life. Ramallah started as a complete departure from Lind’s past with Blood for Blood. The Last Gasp of Street Rock N’ Roll comes full circle by pulling together all of the sounds and styles that Lind is known for. This album is truly representative of his entire scope and will appeal to longtime Ramallah fans as well as the vast base of Blood for Blood fans that have been waiting for new music for decades.

Please note: signed items could be delayed depending on the status of social distancing recommendations at the time of shipping. I can't make the band go and get sick just to sign posters or CD's. But I figure if you're the type that wants a signed item then you're probably ok with waiting on it. We're not talking extensive delays and there may not be a delay at all.
The vinyl pictured is a mock up. Yes, this is the intended vinyl design. However, the way they mix these colors is an art form unto itself. It could look a little different. Basically, this isn't a photograph of the actual record.
First pressing information:
350 copies as pictured here. These copies belong to State Line Records and Ramallah and are available only on the State Line Records site or Get-Punk.com
400 copies are earmarked for distribution. You could find these copies in stores or on independent websites that sell vinyl. These 400 copies reprise the "Blood Flower" design used on the Back from the Land of Nod EP. We won't tell you what the secret recipe is but the design is made to look like a syringe full of dope and by all accounts it was perfect on BFTLON. Back by popular demand for The Last Gasp of Street Rock N' Roll.
150 copies exist on gold vinyl. These will be available exclusively through CoreTex Records in Germany.
100 copies exist on opaque yellow vinyl. These copies are available exclusively through RevHQ. Rev has been the distribution partner for State Line Records for some time now. They really specialize in hardcore so it made sense that The Last Gasp of Street Rock N' Roll be SLR's contribution to the series of Rev colors on a release.
Randale Records in Germany is handling the European market for all sales beyond the copies at CoreTex Record. Consult their site for pressing info.
