When the World Comes Down is the third full-length studio album from
Oklahoma darlings and multi-platinum recording artists THE ALL-AMERICAN
REJECTS. Originally released in 2008 on CD/digital by Interscope Records,
the album toiled in vinyl format limbo, as what was to be mere weeks of waiting
begat months begat years. Having become well-acquainted in years prior,
guitarist Mike Kennerty and Magic Bullet's Brent Eyestone (Kennerty had
originally been a mailorder customer of the label, Eyestone remixed AAR's
"Can't Take It") took the helm to finally see the LP version become a reality in
2010. Oct. 12th, the combined, continuous efforts of the ginormous band and
DIY indie label (both parties unabashed music geeks with sizable and varied
personal record collections) see When the World Comes Down hitting stores
worldwide once again, this time in LP format for the first time ever.
Housed in a stunning, full-sized gatefold jacket crammed tight with candid
photos, complete lyrics and liner notes, and multiple colors of vinyl, fans of
both the band and the format can finally rejoice that such a pop masterpiece
has been given its intended vinyl treatment once and for all.
