*Please note* This preorder is ONLY for the deluxe version of "Magazine." The standard edition will be available in March. You can preorder the record, along with a 4-sided longsleeve shirt, at the New Forces webstore, https://newforces.bigcartel.com/

New Forces is happy to announce the reissue of "Magazine," the landmark noise album by The Rita, as a gatefold double LP. Originally released as a limited-edition double cassette on Swedish label Abisko in 2005, "Magazine" has since become a near-legendary album, considered by many to be the finest recording from pioneering harsh noise artist The Rita (and equally celebrated for its iconic artwork, featuring a Big Muff effects pedal acting as the magazine for a machine gun). "Magazine" contains 80 minutes of militant noise music, with Sam McKinlay pushing the limits of extreme sound until they begin to implode. Drawing influence from abstract painters such as Ad Reinhardt and Kazimir Malevich, the four tracks on "Magazine" are progressively deconstructed, slowly taking the dynamic sonic elements away until the last track is a linear / minimalist “wall” of texture and crunch. Ultimately the hope is that under a microscope the same slowly deteriorating audio dynamism and viciousness from the first three tracks is still present, just found within the walls of linear crunch during the last track, “Obsession.” A study in brutality, density, and focus, "Magazine" tests the listener, challenging them to fully engage with the shifting layers of sound that, through careful study, continually expand beyond their seemingly minimalist form. This militant approach to sound became a call to action for a generation of noise artists who were influenced by The Rita, and "Magazine" has finally been reissued for all to hear.

This deluxe edition of "Magazine" includes the regular edition double-LP, a double cassette tape packaged in a vinyl case featuring remixes of "Magazine" by Werewolf Jerusalem and Treriksröset, two 1-inch buttons, two stickers, an 11x17 poster with the original "Magazine" artwork, expanded liner notes from Sam McKinlay and Tommy Carlsson (Abisko / Treriksröset), and a t-shirt with the original artwork, all packaged in a cardboard mailer, screen-printed on one side with the art from the cassette version of "Magazine" and on the other side with an image from The Rita's favorite scene from "Jaws 4."

The shirts are printed on American-made "Bayside" brand shirts, which fit like a Gildan but are higher quality.

There are a limited number of these boxes available, and they are only available as a preorder from New Forces. Please allow, at minimum, 4-6 weeks for delivery, as many of the components, such as the shirts, are being printed to order. It is possible delivery could take longer, but we will move as quickly as possible to get them into your hands. The vinyl records are finished and in-hand at New Forces, so there will not be any delays related to vinyl pressing to worry about.

Please note: the regular edition of "Magazine" will be available in early March, along with three other new tapes from New Forces. The regular edition is not available for preorder.

Amazing work, this shows some real dedication! I had to preorder the box set. My 4th or 5th Rita shirt, definitely the best!

I pre-ordered this without even a second thought. And the shirt. Looks so awesome. The extra stuff is really something. Very excited to see the finished results.

My fault for not pulling the trigger sooner. I guess I'll be on the lookout on Discogs.

Small update on The Rita "Magazine" special editions: Everything for the boxes is finished EXCEPT for the screen-printed box itself. The company printing these is a small DIY operation, and their store was recently damaged by a bad storm, so they have fallen somewhat behind. They are working hard to get those done ASAP, and when they send them to me I'll start shipping orders. Everything else (the records, tapes, shirts, posters, and so on) looks fantastic! Thanks for your patience.

You didn't! Once I know when all the components of the special edition will be in my hands I will formally announce the regular edition and make it available along with three new New Forces tapes (Interracial Sex, Body Carve, and Ryan Bloomer). Should be in a week or two, very soon.
