Bill Mallonee Launches Kickstarter to Press Audible Sigh on Vinyl

Americana singer-songwriter and former Vigilantes of Love frontman Bill Mallonee has launched a Kickstarter campaign to press that band's much-lauded Audible Sigh album to vinyl for the first (and probably last) time. This will be a deluxe double-LP set, strictly limited to 200 copies.


While the tracklisting for this deluxe pressing has not yet been finalized, the double-LP will comprise at least all 16 songs that showed up across the 5 official CD versions of Audible Sigh, and it may include songs from the Electromeo and Room Despair EPs that immediately followed the release of the Buddy Miller produced album.

Since the Kickstarter campaign essentially functions as a pre-order for one of only 200 copies, fans are encouraged to pledge early to ensure they don't miss out on this exciting release.
