On March 16th Red Scare and Anchorless Records will co-release a new split featuring Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms and Joe McMahon of Smoke Or Fire. Titled Wasted Potential it will feature seven songs from each artist. Anchorless will handle the LP and digital versions of the record while Red Scare will be releasing the CD. Toby from Red Scare quipped "I swear to god I saw this all coming when I saw Joe carrying Brendan's limp, drunken body out of a Las Vegas elevator back in like 2005. So we know they got the 'wasted' part down, we'll have to see about the 'potential'. "
BRENDAN KELLY / JOE MCMAHON “Wasted Potential” LP / Coffee Mug PRE-ORDER
The pressing info is as follows:
160 on Transparent Yellow vinyl
300 on White vinyl
The remainder on Black vinyl
The only place you will be able to get the colored vinyl is through Anchorless’ store. Black vinyl will be available through all the normal outlets. We postied 100 copies with a special edition coffee mug. We are making 150 coffee mugs to go along with this set (100 to go with the vinyl, 50 to be shared between Anchorless, Brendan, and Joe). The Coffee Mugs will have artwork from the release on one side and the Anchorless logo on the other side. Why a coffee mug you ask and not a pint glass? The guys figured a coffee mug will help nurse the hangover after a long night of drinking.
The vinyl will come with a digital download coupon, but chances look good that we will be able to send those who pre-order a copy a link to download the digital version before you receive the vinyl. Still working out the kinks with that, but Anchorless has also been so kind as to donate a test pressing for a test pressing contest. The 100 pre-orders will all be entered for a chance to win the test pressing.
