Official press release:

Silent Pendulum Records has launched the official pre-order for the 20-year anniversary reissue of The Number Twelve Looks Like You's debut album, Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses.

Produced by Converge's Kurt Ballou, the 2003 album introduced the New Jersey band to the world, by way of an experimental brand of metalcore that ricochets between technicality, brutality, chaos, and heartbreak. Reference points include the early works of bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan and A Life Once Lost. In the year of its release, PunkNews enthused: "This is their first release and it's pretty stunning."

The Number Twelve vocalist Jesse Korman states:

If you told 18-year-old me that we would be celebrating the 20-year anniversary of 'Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses' by releasing it on limited edition vinyl and that people would actually buy them… I would say, no way anyone plays this album more than once. So, to everyone who has played this album more than once, you play a very important role in our lives. Thank you.

Silent Pendulum's 20th-anniversary reissue includes three separate vinyl pressings, featuring alternate covers (black, red, pink) and multiple vinyl colors. See complete details and pre-order, here.

Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses tracklist:
1. Don't Get Blood on My Prada Shoes
2. Jesus and Tori
3. Document: Grace Budd
4. Blue Dress

6. Bambi the Hooker and a Case of Beer
