Act I Vinyl Repress and Euro Tour

Now available in 3 separate color variants from our Kings Road Europe and Sound Machine Stores, as well as with our new friends at Limited Run Games (if you don’t know Limited Run Games, you should absolutely go check them out)! And luckily, these records are in-hand, so there won’t be the traditional months and months of the vinyl waiting game. All three stores ship worldwide, so take your pick or buy them all!

We’re also bringing back the original Protomen logo shirt in 3 color variants (with a Blue version we’ve never done before… and I’m not exactly sure why we never did it?).

*PLEASE NOTE* There are also women’s shirts, but there’s a bit of craziness with the covid shirt market right now, so we don’t exactly know which style shirts we’ll be getting for those across the stores, so we didn’t want to lead you astray with the wrong mockups here. Keep an eye on the individual stores for updates.

Limited Run has also come up with their own take on a “Hope Rides Alone” shirt design that I think some of you might like. Check it:

**PLEASE NOTE AGAIN** All this stuff will be in Pre-order mode for 2 weeks and then they’ll get those shirts printed and out the door. Ship times will vary from store to store. 

In case you missed the last mailer… and live in Europe… we’re coming your direction next spring!!! Yeah, I know, it’s pretty exciting. I already pooped my britches twice in anticipation. Tickets are all live (with links below) and ready to be yours, so get to owning a little piece of history.

Warm salutations of some kind,



Hey Europe, we’re coming for you… AGAIN! We had this scheduled for 2021, but obviously that didn’t happen. But I feel real good about it happening in 2022, so grab some tickets and please help spread the word over there about these shows. We’d love to make European trips a much more regular thing.

**NOTE** – some UK shows are in “Priority Presale” right now (whatever that might mean) and will be generally available on Sept 6th at 9am UK time.

…… is today! 
We’ve put up the freshly mixed 2021 version of “Built To Last” on Bandcamp a couple times in the past year for Bandcamp Fridays, but I realized that it’s never lined up with a mailer before for me to tell you about it, so… here you go! It’s available for purchase on our Bandcamp page until 11:59pm PST tonight (Friday). 

AND we just noticed that the split black/clear variant of “Night of Queen” vinyl is down to less than 100 copies, so we’ve added it to the Bandcamp store as well. 

If you don’t know what the hell a Bandcamp Friday is, it’s a very special day where Bandcamp waives their fees for 24 hours, so the artists get all of the money (except for CC fees, but that’s fair enough). So yeah, get out there and support some bands today so they can buy some Tapatio Doritos!

Happy to announce that our New Years show at Exit/In with Makeup And Vanity Set and Hans Condor has sold out, but we wanted to give you a heads up on some new COVID related policy changes at Exit/In (and a majority of venues in Nashville). 

I know it’s still a few months away, but as of right now, Exit/In is requiring a proof of vaccine OR a negative Covid-19 test (within 48hours of the show) to get into the show, with masks strongly recommended. We’re all for this, by the way. The more precautions the better, so venues can stay open and so we don’t get stuck in a lockdown situation again. 

Speaking of vaccines and such, Kyle Gass (of Tenacious D fame – he was also in Evolution, which is a criminally underrated film, I might add) asked us a while back to shoot some footage for a little video he put together for his “Vaccinated” parody of The Ramones’s, “I Wanna Be Sedated.” We obliged. And while they couldn’t use very much of our stuff because it was such a jam-packed star-studded event, we figured we might as well release the Snyder Cut. You might want to rent out a movie theater to watch this potentially academy award winning gem. Watch HERE.

Don’t think you can make it to our New Years or European shows? Don’t sweat it, we made Live In Nashville for this very exacting reason! If you don’t have it already, grab a copy of the Blu-ray and/or CD (or just the digital versions) from our Sound Machine or Kings Road Europe stores and watch or listen anytime from the comfort of your own home. 

If you want a copy of The Cover Up on record, you’d better hurry, there are only about 200 left in Sound Machine Store and much less than that at stores across the US America. Again, if your local record shop doesn’t have it, see if they can get it from URP Distribution before they’re all gone. Also, there are some signed copies available at the SM Store right now.  

Stay safe out there,
