 Captured Tracks will be reissuing the first three full lengths from seminal Lincoln, Nebraska post-punk trio, For Against. Originally released by Independent Project between 1984-1990, these releases will see their first vinyl appearance in over 20 years in a deluxe edition limited boxed set. Remastered by Words on Music (by Marc Ostermeier of Should), the set will feature a bonus booklet and ephemera from the bands early career. For Against was an anomaly within the midwestern post-punk climate, offering melodic and dreamy hook-laden songs in stark contrast to the post-hardcore sounds of the time. With this release, their firmament and place within today’s current crop of guitar-based indie bands should be made secure.

The For Against 3xLP Box Set will be available in a limited run of 1,000. Each LP has an individual jacket that recreates the original album art and includes a 12 page 12×24″ booklet with full color photos and liner notes. All of this comes packaged in a beautiful midnight blue matte wrap box with gold foil stamping.
