The Jane Doe Double LP is finally being re-issued

This image may be one of the more iconic images coming from the hardcore scene in the 21st century so far. The album is without a doubt a landmark for Converge, and seeing as the vinyl version of it really has not seen the light of day since near its release in 2001, collectors have had to pay exorbitant amounts of money to acquire it in the after market. For those unlucky folk that were not there in '01, they have been fleeced over the years.

Well, Deathwish Inc has finally opened the pre-orders on the re-issue. So, if you ever wanted to own this slab, now is your chance to without laying down a ridiculous amount of cash. One of the 3 Deathwish Inc colors is already gone, so these pre-orders are going fast; do not wait to get this if you want it. You will be sorry.

For those that are unaware of the power of this record, Converge's Jane Doe is a twelve horned beast of an album that seethes and roils and hurls invective like the best hardcore albums do. It certainly captured or mirrored some of my emotions at the time, and it was a mainstay on my stereo for quite a number of years (still is to an extent as this is in my Converge album triumvirate). Angry and powerful, Jane Doe certainly spoke well for its time and holds up to the point of it being every bit as urgent and essential today.
