“Billy Breathes” was the sixth studio album that the group made. It was released in 1996 on October 15th. The timing couldn’t be better with the issue coming out on Record Store Day which is Saturday, April 21st of this year. Fans of the band and of the era in music will be pleased to known that the release will be on a 2 LP vinyl set. It’s the fist time the album will make an appearance on vinyl and it will be the perfect addition for those who own vintage style replicas of the old record players from yesteryear.
