Rival Schools and Run For Cover Records have once again been united by fate to release the band’s 2011 sophomore LP Pedals, available for the first time on vinyl in years. Much like the 2022 reissue of Rival School’s first LP, this reissue features packaging updates curated specifically by the band to create the definitive version of this record. The album’s artwork has been updated with new gatefold packaging and a slip-case cover along with an updated set of lyrics and liner notes. In addition to all ten original tracks, the second disc of this edition includes three unreleased b-sides and four live tracks. 

Rival Schools started as the once-new project of vocalist/guitarist Walter Schreifels, who as a member of Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits and Quicksand routinely reinvented the sound of hardcore. In Rival Schools he was joined by bandmates Ian Love, Cache Tolman and Sammy Siegler, whose other projects at the time include Iceburn, CIV and Glassjaw. Pedals continued the legacy of blending pop melodies with hardcore ethos that the band cemented 10 years before on their debut album United By Fate.
