Coil "Ape" box news:
Click here to see the first look at this super lavish package. The overall quality was even higher than expected. 4 lps packed in a tip-on style ultra-heavy duty box set.
We don't have the vinyl here yet as there are some slight concerns with the test pressings but should have that resolved soon. As soon as it is, there will be an update with some more information.
