American Nightmare shirts added to the AN vinyl blog

I’ve added all of my American Nightmare shirts and hoodies to the AN vinyl blog.  In addition to AN vinyl, I originally set out to collect every AN shirt ever made. I continued up through their summer tour after Background Music came out in 2001. On that tour they had 4 or 5 new t-shirt designs and I decided that they were getting too big to keep this up – I couldn’t afford it! haha. So my collecting pretty much ended with the round of shirts that included the Summer 2001 “Drummer” shirt.  Click here and scroll to the bottom of the AN vinyl blog to see the shirt collection.

I’ve also been meaning to add the Deathwish Inc re-releases of both AN LP’s to the vinyl blog, so here they are!  In addition to the pre-order edition that I received from Deathwish, I was able to pick up the limited reunion show color of each LP when I attended the New Years Even show in Los Angeles on 12.31.2011.

In 2011, Deathwish re-released both AN LP’s to coincide with reunion shows that AN played in Boston and Los Angeles in December of 2011. I pre-ordered the grey copy from Deathwish and I bought the transparent red copy at the reunion show in L.A. Both versions are out of approximately 300 or so. The transparent red was only available at the reunion shows. I think the smokey grey color looks awesome with this release – good color choice! The picture doesn’t show it very well, but the grey is actually transparent, not your usual grey/white swirl. Very cool.

The layout of the re-release was changed into a gatefold layout.

The gatefold jacket comes with a double-sided poster insert. One side is the “We’re Down” artwork, the other side is the “Background Music” artwork. The same poster was included in both releases. I put the 12″ LP next to the poster to show the giant size.

I pre-ordered the yellow copy from Deathwish and I bought the transparent purple copy at the reunion show in L.A. Both versions are out of approximately 300 or so. The transparent purple was only available at the reunion shows.

Here’s one of the t-shirts that was sold at the reunion shows.  I took photos of all 3 t-shirts sold at the reunion shows and included them in the AN shirt update.  Scroll to the bottom of the AN vinyl blog to see all the AN shirts.

    One of my favourite hardcore bands. Fuck.

  2. I believe what you posted made a lot of sense.

    But, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not saying your information is not good, but suppose you added something that
    makes people desire more? I mean American Nightmare shirts
    added to the AN vinyl blog | is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
