This split single with Abigail from Japan was released to be sold and help fund the Japan tour the two bands did together in 2010. The splatter versions were only sold on the road in Japan. The black vinyl versions were available via mail order in the US, and had a "punch out" style center hole like the old UK singles used to have. All copies were numbered kinda "secret style" on the inner sleeves. The Midnight song on here is a cover of Quiet Riot "Slick Black Cadillac", the 1979 version!

  • Black vinyl: 300 copies pressed. Includes a Japanese style 'insert cover' which is a two sided 7"x7" with credits/information on back. The black vinyl copies come with a "UK punch out" style center hole, and numbered #201-500. These copies were sold through mail order and made available to the general public.

  • Test Press: 15 copies pressed on splatter vinyl & custom sleeves.
