Philadelphia’s Nothing has announced a special vinyl repress of debut album “Guilty of Everything” in honor of LGBT Pride Month.
The new edition, features the original black and white album cover with a rainbow flag in place of the white flag. The special repress will be available in select indie stores on June 2nd while a limited rainbow colored version is available exclusively via Relapse online.
The band and Relapse Records will donate a portion of the proceeds from each sale to the LGBT awareness non-profits, the It Gets Better Project and New Alternatives. Frontman Nicky Palermo commented on the LGBT version of the album:
“We had just finished the fourth pressing of GOE on pink vinyl in collaboration with Insound/Gilda’s Club NYC to support the fight against breast cancer. We were able to donate a portion of the sale and I thought that was a really great idea.
“Relapse and myself discussed options for the fifth pressing when we noticed the release date would end up falling in the middle of LGBT pride month, so we searched for a suitable non profit that we could do the same.
“We decided to split the proceeds among two charities and decided upon the It Gets Better Project and New Alternatives. It Get’s Better focus’ on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans youth’s struggle of growing up in a society where many do not understand them and in many cases turn to tormenting and torture. In that they show these teens that there is a bright side coming and that they are far from alone. New Alternatives provide support services for homeless LGBT youth.”
