I'm A Die Hard Purson

Any day that I'm able to get in early enough on a Rise Above Records preorder to secure a Die Hard pressing on clear vinyl, you best believe that it is a good day. This stuff sells out quick, and if you are caught napping, you'll miss out. After the 7 inch teaser for the new Purson album earlier this year, I was really looking forward to the release of the full length album. When I hopped into the Rise Above store and saw that there were still some Die Hard versions left, I snatched one up.

The Die Hard version of the LP comes in a nice slipcase with a die-cut keyhole to highlight the obvious focus of the band...Rosalie.

The back of the slipcase indicates this as special edition packaging.

There were 400 of the Die Hard pressing, but only 100 of them were on the milky clear vinyl.

The album itself is really good. Total 70's Rock worship. Nice and laid back with Rosalie's voice, but still with a bit of a hard rock edge.

The album title on the front, and the song titles on the back have a nice gold letter embossing. Rise Above really care about the product they release and these little details really show the level of quality they are committed to. Beautiful.

The Die Hard pressings also come with a big poster, and a "I'm A Purson Person" patch.

I'm totally put off by how this band looks. Well with the exception of how the singer looks of course

Haha, apart from the singer-they look like a bunch of total cocks especially that moron with the curly hair.
