10th Anniversary Reissue On Double LP With Bonus Tracks!
Limited Edition Gatefold Linen-Like Cover With Gold-Foil Stamping - Only 2000 Copies Worldwide!

Indie rock band Ra Ra Riot celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2008 debut album, The Rhumb Line, with a limited edition double LP set, limited to 2,000 copies worldwide.

Formed in January 2006 in Syracuse, NY, Ra Ra Riot quickly gained a devoted following. The group spent late 2007 in the studio with producer Ryan Hadlock (The Gossip, Blonde Redhead, Islands) recording their debut full-length, The Rhumb Line, which peaked at #109 on the Billboard 200 and was ranked as the 38th best album of 2008 by Rolling Stone. The track listing includes the Kate Bush cover "Suspended in Gaffa", while "Ghost Under Rocks", "Each Year", "Dying Is Fine", and "Can You Tell" previously appeared on the band's 2007 self-titled EP. Several of the songs contained in the album are literary references such as "Each Year", which appears to be written about Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and "Dying Is Fine", using the poem by e e cummings.

The limited edition vinyl will be bound in a linen-like cover with gold-foil stamping, and features a second LP of 11 additional live and demo tracks, 9 of which are previously unreleased.

"Whether they're channeling the '80s on 'Too Too Too Fast,' mixing indie pop with lyrics lifted from an e.e. cummings poem on 'Dying Is Fine,' or covering Kate Bush's 'Suspended in Gaffa,' Ra Ra Riot sound elated to have finally arrived at this point: the release of their debut, the payoff after a very tough year, and the proof that they're one of 2008's most promising newcomers." - AllMusic

"Ra Ra Riot combine Arcade Fire's orchestral reveries with Vampire Weekend's pop sensibility for an album that's both effervescent and heartbreaking. FOUR STARS" - Rolling Stone
