The Love Record Stores campaign launched in March to raise awareness of the challenges faced by record shops during the current pandemic, and to encourage music fans to continue shopping online with their favourite stores.
Frontman Kieran Shudall says ‘There’s something magical about record stores. Maybe it’s the smell, or the way you always end up buying what they are playing on their stereo. They are the refuge of all music obsessed people like ourselves. A place to feel closer to home when we are on tour. Being a big fan of block colour vinyl we wanted to make a limited edition bright orange version of What’s It Like Over There? Just because we think it’ll look so sweet spinnin round. It would be cool if you bought our Love Record Stores Event release but more importantly just buy any record you want and love from an independent record shop. They are the blood that runs through our music industry and We MUST support them.’
