Record Store Day Reveals 2021 Black Friday Promotions
Record Store Day will return at least one more time this year, with plans to serve up plenty of specialty items specifically for the busiest shopping time of the year. The list of Record Store Day items available for the annual Black Friday promotion have now been revealed.
Over the years, Record Store Day has expanded its scope beyond just the initial one spring day meant to drive traffic back to record stores. A second Black Friday promotion has been added, and with the pandemic affecting many things over the past two years, the annual spring promotion has been divvied up into a series of Record Store Day drops spread out over the year.
This year for Black Friday, there's a wealth of in-demand vinyl, cassette and CD offerings from some of rock and metal's biggest names. There are legendary recordings being served up on vinyl, there are collectible items such as picture discs and even some special events that acts have taken part in are now preserved on record as well.
Some of the acts ready to drop Black Friday RSD items include Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Crobot, Dio, Evanescence, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Ozzy Osbourne, Puscifer, Nancy Wilson and many more.
Check out a selection of the rock and metal items for Record Store Day's Black Friday promotion below, and see the entire list of Black Friday offerings via the RSD website. Pick out your favorites, then be sure to head to your local participating Record Store Day store on Nov. 26 to fill out your holiday wish list.
