Join The Dead 'Swan Song' Last Recorded single on Limited Edition 7"

Post by Bill Roxx on Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:58 pm

Release Date: January 26, 2018

Thrash fans unite for this very limited pressing of the very last recording from Bay area thrashers Join The Dead. The band has officially called it a day, but before they did they recorded one last tune! 

Walking in Darkness was recorded and was supposed to be a track on the next album from Join The Dead, but that never came to be.  The track was shelved until a worthy cause came up when the band donated the track to the Metal Pulse Radio tribute to Dale Huffman. Outside of that first appearance it has never been officially released until now. 

This thrash tune was just to good to go unnoticed so we decided to put it out on a special Limited Edition 7" single. This is in fact the very first 7" record ever for Roxx Records and also No Life til Metal Records.  

We decided to make it extra special and on side B of this 7" there are 2 additional RARE tracks. The first track is a previously unreleased version of a Deliverance cover song entitled 'What a Joke'. The second track is another Deliverance cover song for the track 'It's The Beat' originally released on the 2009 Michael Phillips solo album 'Mirrors within Mirrors'. Both of these very cool cover tunes feature Michael Phillips on guitars/bass, Jim Chaffin on drums and Scott Waters on vocals.

This 7" is only limited to 150 hand numbered copies and will NOT be pressed again.

Track Listing:

Side A (45 rpm)
1. Join The Dead - Walking in Darkness 

Side B (33 1/3 rpm)
1. Phillips/Chaffin/Waters - What A Joke
2. Phillips/Chaffin/Waters - It's The Beat

Join The Dead is gone?! Wow. That's too bad. I'd buy this song, but I'm not buying a record as I have no means of playing it. I'm far more disappointed that the band broke up than I am about this one song. Man... Sad

It's kind of cool that side one of the record is a 45 and side 2 is 33 1/3!

I hate to hear that they quit. They were a very promising band.

That's a shame.  Join the Dead was a really good band.  What is Mike Phillips currently doing musically?

$15 for three songs?!?! Are you kidding me?! No way! You do realize how tempting that makes it to just go "find" that song somewhere online, right? I won't do it, but I know others won't have any problem justifying it, especially when a legal purchase is ridiculously expensive. Make the download accessible to the rest of the world after you sell the last record, and for a reasonable per-track cost. I'd snap that up in a second.

This is very disappointing.  I liked the EP they put out and was hoping for more.

Records are useless to me so I will have to pass on this.  I would buy a CD though.

There will be a download link to everyone that buys the 7 inch single. There’s only 150 made and they cost well over $10 apiece just to manufacture them. That’s just the way the vinyl small pressings go. The song is also available on CD if you buy the metal pulse tribute CD.

I'll probably do that soon.  I also have Mirrors Within Mirrors so I guess I'll just miss out on the What a Joke cover.
