Third Man Records announced their high tech, environmentally friendly vinyl pressing plant is set to open February 25th. Third Man Pressing features eight newly built presses with state-of-the-art pressing machinery with the ability to accommodate 12" LPs and 7" singles. The plant will be used for Third Man releases, but also will be available to manufacture releases for other labels and artists. Another bonus -- competitive turnaround times (about 5000 records will be able to be produced per 8 hour shift) which translates into more vinyl releases on the market (currently wait times have been VERY long due to the shortage of pressing machinery).
A grand opening event is set to take place at the Third Man storefront on Canfield on February 25th. Stop by for a day full of live music, exclusive merchandise, and limited edition releases including newly pressed copies of The White Stripes' first two albums (The White Stripes and De Stijl) pressed on red vinyl. Plus bond with fellow vinyl fans and celebrate the addition of 50 new jobs for Detroiters.
