Big School is excited to announce that we’ll be giving the vinyl treatment to Bombadil’s fantastic All That The Rain Promises release. We’ve been a fan of the collective since first laying ears on the A Buzz, Buzz single way back in ’08 – an eternity in internet years! The band has overcome a relentless string of obstacles to arrive at, what one could argue, their finest collection of songs, ranging from the downright whimsical (A Question) to the spiritual affirmation of I Will Wait and perhaps the most entertaining ode to procrastination ever (Laundromat). Many have labeled the group a ‘folk’ outfit but after familiarizing yourself with their catalog you’ll be inclined to think they’ve progressed beyond a simple cloud tag!

The record will see a limited run of 300 on bone colored vinyl with an LP-only bonus track, lyric sheet as well an insert featuring artwork and words from the fine folks at Idiots Books (go check them out!) We’ll also be including a free digital download when you purchase the LP. The official release date will be July 24 but we’ll have the pre-order option up sometime in the next few weeks for anyone definitely not wanting to miss out. For those of you not hip to the vinyl (gasp!) we encourage you to pick up the album in digital or CD formats straight from the band via their Bandcamp, where you can also stream the album until your ears are content. Also of note – the band will be playing several dates in May/June – don’t miss out if they pass through your neighborhood! You might even catch team Big School at the NYC show…
