Spartan Records has launched pre-orders for the reissue of Indie Rock band Knapsack’s three full-length albums, including Silver Sweepstakes (1995), Day Three of My New Life (1997), and This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now (1998), fully remastered for vinyl, with each including an out-of-print bonus track. The three reissues will be released on February 3rd, 2023 both in stores and online.
In addition, Spartan is releasing an exclusive limited edition, hand-numbered box set which includes three exclusive variants and a book titled This Version of Truth.
This Version of Truth is an oral history of the band, but also “the story of like-minded bands coming together in a time before GPS, mobile phones, the internet, and social media”. The 72-page book includes over a hundred flyers and photos, a complete show archive, and interviews with members of the band as well as members Mineral, Boys Life, Christie Front Drive, 7 Seconds, and other contributors. The box set is packaged in a hand-number hardcover slipcase with new art direction by Jeff Caudill (Gameface, Low Coast).
Spartan Records has teamed with three retailers for variants also, including BrooklynVegan (3 exclusive variants), Newbury Comics (3 exclusive variants), and RevHQ (3 exclusive variants).
