Last year, Eric Church released his Caught In The Act LIVE release on Vinyl for Record Store Day and included 4 unreleased tracks and a special whiskey-infused vinyl. Record Store Day 2014 falls on Saturday, April 19th this year and the chief is back! The package includes two LPs as well as a limited edition poster. If the sound of vinyl isn’t enough to sell you on the release, there are TWO BONUS TRACKS.
The lucky fans who pick up the release will get an extended version of ‘The Outsiders’ as well as a track titled ‘Come Together’.

About Record Store Day:
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.
This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
