Remember that crazy little thing called 8-track? Well, Dengue Fever has just announced that they are reissuing their entire back catalog on 8-track tapes via TUK TUK Records!
All 8 major Dengue Fever titles will be available starting April 2 as an exclusive box set for $249. “We just really wanted to do something unique” said someone in the band. The box set is available for preorder HERE.
According to the site 8-Track Heaven, the 8-track tape is mostly dead–but not totally. The site says major labels quit producing 8-track tapes in about 1988, but “a number of entrepreneurial souls have kept the 8-track tradition alive in the form of small production runs of independently released carts.” Anybody still own an 8-track tape player or have fond memories of using one?
Too cool for 8 tracks? Don’t worry, we’ve got vinyl and cassettes too.
