What is an Early Bird Edition?

I believe it was Toucan Sam who said "The early bird gets the worm," but here at Polyvinyl we're far more interested in cool vinyl than creepy crawlers (although Matt and Darcie's kids might disagree).

In that spirit, we've created the "Early Bird Edition" -- a special, limited edition first pressing of most new albums on colored vinyl.

Where can I get my hands on an Early Bird Edition?

The easiest way is to pre-order a copy right here on our site. But be warned -- these pressings are likely to sell out before or around release date, so don't think you can come strolling in here a year later and expect to get your hands on one.

In some cases, a band might also have copies on tour so look for the "Early Bird Edition" sticker (with the logo above) at the merch table.

I like lists. Can you please make one of all the Early Bird Edition titles?

Yes, but only because you said please. Check back often because most new Polyvinyl albums will be added as they're released.
