This is it. The last new release email of 2020. It's been quite the year, for obvious reasons. But for less obvious ones, we here at Mondo and Death Waltz are especially grateful for the love and support you've given us with our wide variety of new releases and reissues.
This week we'll be finishing things off with an exclusive colorway of the soundtrack to one of our favorite anime series, NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, with the songs-only compilation EVANGELION FINALLY from our friends at Milan Records.
We've also begun shipping MANDALORIAN SEASON ONE Box Sets, and are going back up with the remaining stock in case you missed it. These won't be re-pressed, so don't sleep on it!
We'll also be sending a recap email with some of our favorite titles of the year that you may have missed. Our next new release will be on January 6th, 2021, with our first foray into a whole new universe of titles.
Thanks again for your love and support and we'll see y'all in 2021.
As always, all new releases go on sale here Wednesdays at Noon CST.
