Rare VNV Nation transparent clear vinyl of ‘Empires’ available

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

First of all, let me thank you Sebastian K. from Audioglobe for what is without any doubt THE funniest read I had this week when your mail ended up in my mailbox.

But back to the topic of this news, VNV Nation. A few years ago, two vinyl editions were released by VNV Nation of the band’s third album “Empires”. One on black vinyl, and one on transparent/clear vinyl in exclusive/different artwork.

The transparent/clear vinyl was close to impossible to find, because there were simply no copies put into circulation due to some unknown reason. That is until today. 200 copies of the clear vinyl have finally surfaced.

You can order this transparent/clear vinyl right here, but be extremely fast!

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
