This year’s Record Store Day is building up to be a day full of exclusive edition releases. Fans who are building their vinyl collection should mark their calendars. Already, bands like Led Zeppelin, Quicksand, The Bronx are planning to re-release albums. The Bronx are dealing out their first three albums: I, II, and III on limited edition vinyl.
Now, American rock band led by female powerhouse Amy Lee is set to join the rank. Fans of Evanescence are in for something special on Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores. When the annual event happens Saturday, April 21st, Craft Recordings will release the band’s Lost Whispers. The reissue is limited to 2,500 copies and will be presented on blue translucent vinyl. It will also be the first time the record will be available on vinyl as a stand-alone release.

It includes a variety of b-sides and bonus tracks, including a studio version of the fan-favorite tour intro “Lost Whispers” as well as a 2016 recording of their early tracks “Even in Death,” which originally was featured on Evanescence’s 2000 demo album, Origin.
