New York, April 15, 2013 – In honor of Record Store Day, April 20, 2013, “South Park” and Comedy Central Records have teamed up to release a limited edition 7-inch vinyl picture disc featuring two songs from the long-running program. Limited to 2,000 copies, the 7-inch contains “San Diego” from season 16’s “Butterballs” episode and the previously unreleased track “Gay Fish” from Season 13’s “Fishsticks” episode.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently-owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. This is the one day that all of the independently-owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, and DJs spinning records. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday of every April.
