UPDATE: You Am I will now bring their Convicts vinyl release show to Adelaide’s The Gov on October 3 with support from Adalita.
Aussie rockers You Am I have unveiled plans to release their seventh studio album, Convicts, on vinyl for the first time ever.
The 2006 album, which contains hit It Ain’t Funny How We Don’t Talk Anymore, will be released on 180-gram vinyl ahead of the band’s European tour this September, with two East Coast launch dates locked down before they jet overseas.
“The recording of the LP Convicts found our band at an odd juncture,” You Am I said.
“And whaddya do when you find yerselves at a juncture? You hitch yerself to the fastest hunk o’ junk outta there. Stuck ourselves in a room and wrestled with some toons like kids on detention at the Potter’s Wheel.
“We listened back lately; we like it. So, we’re releasing it on LP for the first time, and playing some shows. Because we like it. First at a couple of venues we have history with, then we’ll go be Convicts in Europe.”
