Silent Pendulum Records proudly announces the pre-order launch for the 20-year anniversary reissue of The Number Twelve Looks Like You’s groundbreaking debut album, Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses.
Masterfully produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, the 2003 release marked the arrival of the innovative New Jersey band, showcasing their experimental take on metalcore— a genre-fluid fusion characterized by technical prowess, unbridled intensity, and emotional depth. Drawing parallels to early works by bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan and A Life Once Lost, the album garnered widespread praise from its inception, with PunkNews lauding it as “pretty stunning.”
In a retrospective look at the band’s influential career, Kerrang! highlighted The Number Twelve’s distinctive blend of death metal, hardcore, screamo, and intricately progressive elements, as well as their electrifying live shows.
Reflecting on the album’s enduring impact, vocalist Jesse Korman expresses his gratitude to fans: “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.”
This special 20th anniversary reissue by Silent Pendulum Records features three distinct vinyl pressings with alternate covers (black, red, pink) and a variety of vinyl colors. For full details and to pre-order, visit: silentpendulumrecords.com.
