King Crimson Announce Record Store Day Exclusive

King Crimson
Virgin Media

If you love vinyl, semi-frivolous bonus tracks, and classic rock, this is gearing up to be one monster of a Record Store Day. So far, artists like David Bowie, Cream, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, and the Rolling Stones have all announced exclusive RSD releases, and now prog-rock’s elder statesmen, King Crimson, are throwing their hat in the ring with the fittingly-titled ‘Going Schizoid with King Crimson.’

This exclusive release is definitely a bit schizoid. It includes a 10-track CD compilation of live performances (ranging from 1969 all the way to 1998), a band-driven graphic novel based on ‘The Vicar Chronicles’ (described by the band as “semi-fictional stories about the inner madness of the music industry”), and a collectibles bundle of t-shirt, poster, and stickers all based on the artwork from the band’s seminal masterpiece ‘In the Court of the Crimson King.’

In terms of sheer indulgence, this is about the proggiest RSD release of all time — but it’s also one of the most unique. April 20 can’t come soon enough.
