Loveable maverick Beans on Toast has announced the release of a very unusual limited edition vinyl, especially for 2014’s Record Store Day, April 19. In what is arguably the world’s smallest ever Best Of collection, the 10” vinyl pressing of Best Of Toast will feature one track from each of Beans’ albums to date. Hand numbered, individually signed and limited to 300 copies, these records are highly collectable.
Ahead of the release, you can stream the track ‘Can’t Take Another Earthquake’ featuring Bastille’s Dan Smith and Kate Tempest, with production by Frank Turner here.
Never knowingly underworked, Beans on Toast will also play at all three Rise Records locations - Bristol, Cheltenham and Worcester - plus an evening headline show at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach, all in the space of Record Store Day itself.
The Rise shows will see Beans in slightly more modest surrounds, coming as they do off the back of a support slot on label-mate and good friend Frank Turner’s recent UK arena tour (including London 02 arena). The RSD vinyl release follows the Radio 1 Punk Show-supported recent single ‘Keep You’ (out now), taken from the album 'Giving Everything' released in December 2013.
