The 8-bit Time Capsule (ETR180)
This variant is currently sold out
Enjoy The Ride Records in collaboration with Giovanni Rotondo is thrilled to announce the release of The 8-bit Time Capsule. This unique album offers a compelling journey through reimagined worlds of beloved video game franchises.
The 8-bit Time Capsule crafts a story of imagined, long-lost chapters of famous game franchises, envisioning alternative timelines and realities. Imagine these pieces of music were hidden in a time capsule and, in a future timeline, they are finally unearthed. This concept translates into a sonic tapestry of "what-if" scenarios within each franchise, spanning styles from orchestral to metal, rock, and hip-hop. The result is a captivating, cinematic listening experience.

These images are photographs of the actual records - these are NOT mock-ups. With that said, and with any colorful vinyl record we design, we CAN NOT guarantee they will look exactly like this, and no two records will be exactly the same, especially those with splatter. Please keep that in mind when purchasing.
Important Notes, Please Read: This release will begin shipping next week. Please be patient, once your order ships you will get tracking information. Please be aware that Priority Mail orders WILL SHIP FIRST, so if this is needed ASAP for a gift then please choose Priority Mail.
This release, upon request, can be shipped outside of the jacket to avoid seam splits. This album comes mailed inside of the jacket sealed with shrink wrap on the outside. We do not have any extra jackets for this release in case of minor damage by the USPS in transit. To clarify, It will come packaged in a full-color jacket (as pictured) sealed with plastic wrap UNLESS requested in the notes of your order to "open the album & place outside of the jacket prior to shipping." This is a good way to prevent potential seam splits along the top of the jacket due to careless handling by the post office, and this service is free of charge.
If you forget to write in the notes of your order about shipping outside of the jacket, PLEASE EMAIL US WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER and ask us to update the notes on your order to ship outside of the jacket. Release days are hectic, especially the first few hours, so please give ample time for a response. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you!
