KILLIE - Retrial Of The Criminal Begins 2x12" LP

Earlier this year, the legendary Japanese Screamo band 'KILLIE' surprised their fans by announcing that they've re-recorded and re-imagined most of their back catalogue for a 'discography of sorts’ titled ‘Retrial of the Criminal Begins’ and will be self-releasing it on cd.

On the 5th of October, Dog Knights Productions will be releasing a vinyl edition of 'Retrial of the Criminal Begins' as a deluxe 2xLP with one of a kind packaging and an exclusive bonus track. I've been pitching ideas to KILLIE since forming the label 8 1/2 years ago, and its so surreal to finally get the chance to work with them.

This is by far the most ambitious (and expensive) project that i've ever been a part of. We're going to keep most of the details secret until the records arrive, but believe me, you've never seen a vinyl release like this one before.

*It’s worth noting that there are two vinyl variants for this project; simply referred to as ‘splatter /200’ and ‘starburst /500’ for now

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays). All orders placed through Dog Knights will always receive free promotional flyers, stickers, digital download codes, and maybe even a free record with larger orders, whenever possible.

Always read the item description carefully. Pre-orders are clearly noted at the top of the item description as “pre-order” along with an estimated shipping date, which is liable to change at any time due to the long process of vinyl manufacturing. This information is also added to the drop-down tab on every selectable product listing that is an active ‘pre-order’ - so it’s impossible to proceed without acknowledging. Please do not email us in June to ask where your order is, if you’ve added a product that reads ‘Due To Ship Mid-July’ to your cart.

The best way to stay up to date with active pre-order (bad news or good news), is to occasionally check our social media pages at @dogknights across all platforms. It saves both our time to quickly check these pages before emailing us asking for an update on a pre-order when we’ve been regularly updating these pages.

Need to make a change to your address? No problem, mistakes happen! Just email before your order has shipped and we will do our best to amend this in time.

If you believe your order has gone missing or arrives damaged in any form, please email along with your order #, full name + address, the date you placed the order, and any other information that could prove useful to us.

We are forever grateful to all of our customers for supporting Dog Knights and our bands. Please treat us with respect, like we will to you. Any uncalled-for aggression or rude behaviour will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly, however we deem fit.

As of 1st October, PayPal changed their refund policy and will no longer refund the “transaction fees” — meaning all small businesses will actually lose money whenever a customer requests a refund. It goes without saying, but we are a small label and it’s incredibly unhelpful to ask for a refund if you’ve simply “changed your mind”. All money directly goes toward future projects and/or the band. If there’s no other choice but to issue a refund, the non-refundable fees that have already been collected by PayPal (approximately 5% of the entire order) will not be returned.

Further information can be found in our FAQ/T&C's section at the top of our store page.

Pressing Information

First pressing of 700. Both records and double-sided full-colour inserts are packed into deluxe gatefold pvc sleeves, with a screen-printed statement from the band on both inner panels. Includes a large-format 21cm photobook. All copies come with an immediate download of the full LP, which includes all the songs from the cd version, but not the 20 minute vinyl-exclusive track.

*Please note that these pvc sleeves are prone to bad seam-splits from transit and there's nothing we can do to prevent this. Apologies if your cover is slightly damaged.
