Almost Killed Me

Pressed On Blue Vinyl

Remastered From The Original Tapes

First Time Released On Vinyl In Over 10 Years

Almost Killed Me is the debut studio album by Brooklyn-based rock band The Hold Steady, originally released on March 16, 2004 via Frenchkiss Records. It is considered by many to be a concept album, with several recurring themes such as near-death experiences, parties and the fictional character Charlemagne. It's concept album roots are further explored with the recurring characters in Separation Sunday, the Hold Steady's second album, which uses the same characters introduced in Almost Killed Me. Almost Killed Me was ranked number 99 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Best Albums of the Decade.

Separation Sunday 

Pressed On White Vinyl

Remastered From The Original Tapes

First Time Released On Vinyl In Over 10 Years

Separation Sunday is the second studio album by The Hold Steady, originally released on May 3, 2005 through Frenchkiss Records. A concept album, Separation Sunday follows the stories of Craig (the narrator), Holly (short for Halleluiah), a sometimes addict, sometimes prostitute, sometimes born again Christian/Catholic (and sometimes all three simultaneously); Charlemagne, a pimp; and Gideon, a skinhead, as they travel from city to city and party to party. (All three characters made appearances on the band's previous album, Almost Killed Me, and reappear in "First Night", and "Same Kooks" on Boys and Girls in America, and then again in "Ask Her For Adderall", a bonus track from Stay Positive.)
