Philadelphia announces Multiple New Releases and Special Contest


Classic Christian rockers, Philadelphia, has just announced that they will release a multi-album project, which includes the reissuing of some limited edition releases from their catalog, via Roxx Records.

2018 will see several very cool pieces come back to life, featuring all new remasters and revised artwork on vinyl and CD of the classic second album from Philadelphia, “Search and Destroy”, as well as a a very special pressing on vinyl of the bands most recent album, “Warlord”!

Search and Destroy was originally released in 1985 on vinyl and tape only, and eventually on CD for the first time in 2000 with a Limited Edition pressing on M8 records. Those original tracks will be remastered from the original source and reissued on a limited edition full vinyl pressing of 500 pieces along with a special remastered CD edition of only 500 pieces, containing all of the original tracks just as they appeared in 1985.

Roxx Records is also going to do something very special with the cover art for Search and Destroy, as they are going to recruit all of you artists out there to assist us with this one:

Roxx Records wants YOU to take the original album cover for Search and Destroy, which RR has stripped down to bare bones, and color it, add to it, and bring new life in to that original artwork! The winner will be given a VERY nice vinyl and cd special prize package that will not bring disappointed. (Philadelphia and the Roxx Records will judge all of the entries and select the winner).

Those wishing to enter the Search and Destroy album art contest must email to receive the file and begin working on it. This contest will run until December 15, 2017and the winning entry will be announced before the year end work on the packages for a 2018 release date begins.

If that is not enough for you, Roxx Records will also be pressing a special run of only 150 copies of the latest album Warlord on vinyl as a part of the Roxx Records hand numbered Underground Series. This will be a very limited run also coming out in 2018 you won’t want to miss out on this one either!
