Remember back when Mightier Than Sword Records attempted to re-release Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, blink-182‘s hit record on vinyl back in 2011? Well it’s finally going to happen nearly 2 years later, but through web vendor Shop Radio Cast.
Although a few of the over the top details have been changed up quite a bit in comparison to the original plans that were made by MTS, things are looking bright for fans of the iconic record. The record is set to release on May 7, 2013.
Follow the jump for more details.

– Each 7″ housed in a glue pocket jacket with a full color CMYK insert
– LP is housed in a full color Inner Sleeve

Advance Pre Orders will occur early March, however we encourage those who purchased to set up their advance purchase and discount immediately.
Here are the answers to a few FAQ’s we anticipate:
1.) Can I buy the 7″ without the LP?
No. Unfortunately due to licensing restrictions the 7″ are not to be sold separately and are only allowed to be sold as a LP &3×7″ bundle.
2.) When will pre orders launch?
Pre orders will launch early March. Those who previously ordered this who follow the instructions above will receive an advance pre order, allowing them to purchase 48 hours prior to the public. We will announce both the public and advance pre order date and time next week.
3.) What is the same and what is different about how this is being pressed?
The artwork components will remain the same as they were supposed to be. Each set will include a reverse cardboard triple panel gatefold with three 7″ pockets. Each 7″ will be housed in a full color glue pocket with insert. The LP will be housed in a full color inner sleeve. There will be NO gold foil ’10th anniversary’ stamp on any of the copies.
We have changed the vinyl pressing from various variants to one variant. We have done this to match the foreword quantities allowing an opportunity for people to purchase this without having to compete for various colors.
4.) Will you repress once first pressing is sold out?
We are not sure at this time. We do know that after this the foreword will never be released again. As well if we press with the bonus 7″ again, they will not be on color.
