The Horrible Crowes – Ladykiller 7″ (U.S. Pressing)

The Horrible Crowes’ latest and second overall 7″ is not officially released until February 21, 2012, but Side One Dummy started shipping out copies the week before the release date in order for them to reach everyone on the release date. The 7″ features an a cover of the INXS song “Never Tear Us Apart” on the b-side, which I believe is exclusive to this 7″ and was unreleased up to this point.

The 7″ has a U.S. pressing and a UK pressing. The U.S. pressing was pressed on three colors; blood red limited to 300 copies, clear yellow limited to 300 copies and black limited to 400 copies. Red copies were exclusive to Side One Dummy, yellow copies were exclusive to Shit Radio Cast and black copies were widely available as they were distributed everywhere. The colored copies for the U.S. pressing sold out during the pre-order phase. The record for the U.S. pressing comes in a printed dust sleeve rather than a regular paper dust sleeve. The UK pressing is apparently done on the same colors as the U.S. pressing, but were pressed at a plant in Europe. Pressing info for the UK pressing has not been released yet to my knowledge. I believe Banquet Records is the exclusive retailer for the UK pressing.

Initially it was advertised the b-side for this 7″ would be a cover of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” but that turned out not to be the case. Side One Dummy apologized for the mixup and stated that the Katy Perry cover would be featured on a future The Horrible Crowes release.
