 Pedro the Lion reissues albums on vinyl

It’s been six years since the members of Seattle indie rock outfit Pedro the Lion went their separate ways. Now, Jade Tree Records is giving fans a chance to revisit the band’s decade-long career by reissuing four LPs and an EP on freshly minted vinyl.

Included amongst the repressings are all four of Pedro the Lion’s full-length albums: their 1998 Made In Mexico debut It’s Hard to Find a Friend, as well as their three Jade Tree releases, Winners Never Quit, Control, and Achilles Heel. The 1999 EP The Only Reason I Feel Secure rounds out the collection. All the vinyls feature remastered audio from the original source by the band’s multi-instrumentalist T.W. Walsh, except for Winners Never Quit, which was handled by John McCaig.

All five records will hit retailers on October 30th, but a pre-sale will be held from now until August 31st. Those who opt to order the complete collection early will get a screen printed turntable mat and a signed and numbered 10×10 art print, both adorned with the lovely image above of lead singer David Bazan’s head being split open by a hatchet.

For more information and to pre-order your choice of the albums (at $14 each) or the bundle with the head-splitting imagery ($70), click over to Jade Tree’s online store. Below, listen to the track “Never Leave a Job Half Done” from Winners Never Quit.
