A one-off release by Blunt Force Trauma - half of which is Inkymole who is also the illustrator of the sleeve and label artwork - taken from Sage Francis' Sick to D(eat)h album of 2013.
It is unusual as it is a 7" format in a 12" sleeve which has a 2-sided print as part of the sleeve that is perforated so it can be removed. The sleeve also has a hype card promoting Sage's forthcoming album 'Copper Gone' (which Inkymole also illustrated).
The UK/Euro release comes with a Factoryroad manufactured 45 rpm adapter in various colours, those being grey, turquoise, purple, 1x orange and 1x off-white.
The US release, available in the first instance exclusively through Sage Francis' label Strange Famous Records only has a silver 45 rpm adapter, but they are also individually signed by Inkymole in silver ink, orange and red.

Limited to 500 copies worlwilde.
