United Nations "s/t"

Originally released in 2008, United Nations' eponymous debut album was destined for commercial controversy from the moment it was announced. The anticipation surrounding its release was at a fever pitch as rumors circulated that the enigmatic band's all-star lineup included members of Thursday, Glassjaw and Converge. When the album finally dropped, its lawsuit-baiting artwork - essentially the original cover of The Beatles' "Abbey Road" album, with all of the Beatles engulfed in flames - immediately forced at least one major mall retail chain (rhymes with Not Tropic) to destroy all of the several thousands of copies it had ordered. The album's entire pressing was then recalled, destroyed and repackaged with artwork presumably less offensive to Sir Paul and Co. The vinyl has been out of print ever since, and that original artwork has become more myth than material. "United Nations" has been remastered for this special deluxe vinyl edition and includes an infinite bonus track. The original "banned" artwork has been restored to its litigious glory, now expanded to include the previously unreleased panels to complete the original triptych - all printed on a massive 12 x 36", full-color, foldout poster. LP includes high-quality MP3 download.
