Hitch...was a mess. Not the album - that's actually quite good. The production of the vinyl was a disaster, with massive delays and at least one rejected version. It sucks when something like that happens, especially since it deflates the excitement from the band's core fans. The band had also moved on from the major label world for this record, producing and releasing it on their own, which I think hurt their ability to market it.

After one of the vinyl production delays, the band sent a free digital EP (Sleep Is Day) to anyone who had pre-ordered the vinyl. That was nice of them. It's quite good as well.

Anyway, there are a couple of vinyl versions, all double LPs, all on black vinyl. The U.S. version is easy to find. The original UK version is a bit scarcer. There was apparently a UK repress in 2017, and that one is easy to find.
