Alkaline Trio / One Man Army - BYO Split Series V (LP - Red Vinyl)
As a suburban Chicagoan in high school during the late 90s/early 00s, Alkaline Trio was a big fuckin' deal. It seemed like anywhere you went, you would see someone with a Heart & Skull t-shirt...or tattoo. In 2004, BYO released a split record with Alkaline Trio & One Man Army. I first heard about BYO's split series from the Rancid/NOFX record (where they covered each other's songs), so naturally I had to get this record. I was lucky enough to score red vinyl. I still love the songs on this record. It's post-Good Mourning and the songs on here reflect that vibe.
From 1999-2004, BYO records released five Split series records. The Alkaline Trio/One Man Army was the last record in that series. Red vinyl was limited to 500 copies.
