Oakland’s Rogue Wave recently released a special 1980s-themed covers album titled Cover Me for Record Store Day Black Friday back in November. The set found the indie/rock band tackling some classic ’80s tunes made famous by the likes of the Romantics, Pete Townshend, the Cure, ZZ Top, Echo & the Bunnymen and more.
On February 17, they’ll reissue the album as a special Deluxe Edition featuring some additional tracks and fancy vinyl for the collectors out there.
From their announcement:
The limited-edition deluxe gatefold package includes a bonus 7″ with two previously unreleased tracks, a special multi-color splattered translucent vinyl, and a digital download of all nine tracks on the standard release, the two tracks on the 7″ plus one more bonus track! Only 300 of these were pressed, and they’re available exclusively online and direct from the artist.
