Phish Will Reissue ‘Rift’ on Vinyl This Fall
Phish will reissue their 1993 full-length, Rift, on vinyl for the very first time this fall via the band’s own JEMP Records. It will be pressed on 180-gram, water-blue vinyl and comes with a limited-edition screen print. Take a look below:
The vinyl edition of Phish’s fourth long-player will be available for purchase at the band’s upcoming Magnaball summer festival, which takes place on Aug. 21-23 in Watkins Glen, New York. This marks the festival’s 10th anniversary, and in addition to Rift, concertgoers will also have the chance to pick up Phish's 1986 eponymous album (a.k.a. The White Tape), 1989’s Junta, 1990’s Lawn Boy, 1992’s A Picture of Nectar and their New Year’s Eve 1995 live album, which was re-released on vinyl this past Record Store Day. Get more information on the three-day fest on the band’s website.
If you can’t make it to Magnaball to grab Rift, a limited number of copies will also be made available on Phish’s online store and local retailers in mid-September.
In addition to their Magnaball festival, Phish are currently on a tour that kicks off today (July 21) in Bend, Ore. The band has stops scheduled through September, including several two-night runs. The current set of dates culminates with a three-night residency in Commerce City, Colo., from Sept. 4-6. Check out their complete schedule here.
