It is released by US label Ipecac Recordings and it is their second vinyl release for a Valve game soundtrack.
The soundtrack, which is composed by Jason Hayes, will be released as a single LP on red vinyl. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with game art and comes with a download code for the soundtrack.
The LP is set to release on July 28, 2017 and can be preordered from Ipecac’s Bandcamp ($23), US distributor Revolver Merch ($22), and EU distributor Townsend Music (€20). It is also still available via different regional Amazon stores.
It was announced a while back, but today Data Discs revealed that they will start taking orders for their vinyl release of Tohru “Master” Nakabayashi’s Altered Beast soundtrack.
The release will be a single LP cut at 45 RPM. As always it will be available in 3 different color variants – classic black, orange opaque, and a limited edition clear with orange splatter. The cover features original art sourced from the SEGA archives and the release also comes with a foldout poster of the box art from the game.
The release is priced at £20 and is scheduled to begin shipping out in the first week of July. Orders are set to open on June 30, 2017 via Data Discs’ webstore here.

Chris Hülsbeck – the composer of the Turrican series and several other retro titles – have announced and launched a new Kickstarter project called “Turrican Orchestral Selections”.
The project features arranged versions of a selection of music from the Turrican series, that didn’t make it onto his previous release, “Turrican II – The Orchestral Album”.
The vinyl version will be a double LP on black vinyl and will come with the album on CD, a booklet, and downloads for both the orchestra album and a brand new album described as a “Virtual Turrican 4 soundtrack” recorded on Amiga hardware.
There’s also a box set version limited to 1000 numbered copies. In addition to what’s included in the standard vinyl tier, the box set comes with physical art prints and downloadable musical scores.
In addition to the regular tiers, an additional CD and vinyl record of the virtual Turrican 4 album may be added to the pledge if the project hits its stretch goals.
The Kickstarter is aiming for a $85,000 goal and if succesful, physical rewards are scheduled to begin shipping in April 2018.
The 2LP is priced at $65 ($55 for early bird) and the box set is priced at $95 ($80 for early bird). You can pledge for either (or one of the higher vinyl tiers) via Kickstarter now.
