Happy 20 years to Gatsbys American Dream - Ribbons & Sugar!

Overdue is proud to announce a 20th Anniversary pressing of Ribbons & Sugar, shipping now at overduecollection.com and on Bandcamp.

Originally released on July 1st 2003, this album marked a significant change in direction for the band which would foreshadow their later work.

This anniversary pressing is 45RPM on 180-gram vinyl. The liner notes include the original interview from the 2011 pressing in a fresh new layout featuring photos from GAD's archives! The insert is tri-fold, printed on uncoated paper.

The plain, white, uncoated jackets feature two different stickers. One is a hand-numbered, two-color risograph-printed sticker on the top right of the jacket. The second is a custom imprinted, holographic sticker which folds over the spine (except for the Swine Edition). Everything is housed in a resealable polypropylene sleeve.

The matte black jacket variants are exclusive to the Overdue store and are limited to 100 copies each.

The Blue / White Swirl variant may contain random streaks of black and brown. We asked the pressing plant to not clear the hopper between colors, with fun results.

50% of the profits go to the band. 25% goes to charity or mutual aid funds chosen by the artist (in this case, water.org), and the remaining 25% goes to production costs associated with the releases. This new model is more sustainable for the artists, and we're excited to partner with Gatsbys American Dream on this release!

They are shipping now. Pending demand, they should arrive within 1-2 weeks.
