***UPDATE!!! If you’re ordering this and DO WANT a copy w/ the Silver Embossed jacket, which I imagine everybody would sure like, PLEASE READ & BE ADVISED: You must make note of this in the comments section of your order. IF YOU’VE ALREADY purchased a copy, you can just e-mail ME at ryan@slyvinyl.com and I’ll be sure to get your name over to the band to be sure this is remedied. I just made further confirmation with Tan Vampires about this. I apologize in advance. Hopefully this makes for transparency!! Thanks everybody!!

NOTE: The entirety of this pressing comes to 500 total copies. At the time of this posting, there are LOW QUANTITIES of the 100 w/ Silver Embossed jackets.

How many New Hampshire bands do you know of? I’m not familiar with many, but I can safely say that Tan Vampires stands tall in representing this state!!

Originally released in 2011,¬†For Physical Fitness set these guys into motion with steadfast momentum. Comprised of 6 members, the recordings you’ll hear within this album heavily revolve around the warming vigor of¬†Jake Mehrmann’s voice and a wide array of guitar work amid subtly set keys, organ, marimba, and even horns.

Throughout this record, you’ll be shown a more relaxed side of Tan Vampires. What they put forth is an absolutely powerful state of euphoric pondering. After listening to this one entirely, you can certainly see where they launched so profoundly.

In comparison to their latest EP,¬†Ephemera, this album consists of a more slow building/burning sound. This album serves to make a proper introduction from a standpoint of the band’s more drawn back and subtle capabilities. And when I say drawn back, I certainly don’t mean to disrespect the power and enormity of this piece of work. The tracks within this album speak immensely about the abilities of each member and their collective efforts as Tan Vampires. I’ve listened to this one multiple times now and I get hit with a plethora of emotion each and every time; with each and every track.

For Physical Fitness serves as a perfect introduction to the multifaceted influence that Tan Vampires conveys so effortlessly.






“There’s a little something for everyone here, be they folk fans, Modest Mouse fans, Death Cab fans, or anyone who’s feeling a little moody. It’s the kind of music that feels like a hug, but doesn’t get boring after a few songs.” –¬†Alex Pinto of The Deli Magazine
