Give Them Rope 2x12" features all NEW artwork and comes packaged in a beautiful gatefold jacket.

Says Coalesce frontman Sean Ingram: "Coalesce is very honored to be working with No Sleep records to give our first full length record a proper home in vinyl. This record has proved to be a very difficult challenge over the years, and some of us felt it was never quite done. The art wasn't correct, that bass line Stacy biffed needed fixing, the mastering was muddy. Whatever anyone has to say about Give them Rope, the band has their own opinions too. It's true that you never forget your first, and this sentiment is what led Ingram to revisit this record around 2002 to fix those past mistakes as it was going into repress again. The results weren't bad, but they were too different. It's something that George Lucas could appreciate, but old fans could not totally embrace. Because 2002 is in itself a long time ago, and more new fans actually heard the second version than the first, we are doing we think is the right way to approach this and No Sleep is including both versions in one Gatefold package with the original artwork reworked to include both versions."

Give Them Rope, the first proper full-length from this wildly influential, trail-blazing hardcore band, blew minds upon its original 1997 release. The record took hardcore’s urgency into an altogether heavier, more angular and discordant direction than any of the bands progenitors before them. This repackaged, remastered edition of the original album comes complete with extensive liner notes from COALESCE guitarist Jes Steineger, as well as a 2nd LP with 2004’s ‘Give Them Rope She Said V2.0 featuring an alternate mix and mastering job of the entire Give Them Rope album’. Vinyl does NOT come with a digital download.
