Featuring a gatefold jacket designed by Phantom City Creative, the record will come in versions: black and black with gray splatter. Mondo already has 1,000 copies pressed, which will go on sale Friday at a random time (as usual, keep an eye the collectible-art boutique’s Twitter feed for the announcement). Once those are gone, they’ll shift to preorders that will be re-pressed as needed, and shipped early next year.
Indie music duo and YouTube sensation Pomplamoose recorded their version of the theme from 1989’s Batman, complete with a musical superhero story as the video. Taken by itself, it would have been a fun, zany way to celebrate The Dark Knight Rises, but of course it’s almost impossible to take it by itself after the tragedy in Aurora. Recognizing that, the band also includes a disclaimer at the front about their struggle with whether to release the video (they created it before the shootings took place).
