Vinyl comes with a MP3 coupon . This item is available in North-America through Stickfigure Direct

"The Chicago quartet’s new album steamrolls the senses with brash polyrhythmic riffs, vitriolic punk attitude and destructive seasick rhythms. “Sickening Rebellion” rolls with a calculated hardcore intensity, while “WWDHD” mounts from chugging ominous distortion into an epic metallic explosion. American Heritage—Adam Norden [Vocals/Guitar], Scott Shellhamer [Guitar], Mike Duffy [Drums], Erik Bocek [Bass]—preserve the abrasive amalgam of technicality and brutality they’re known for, while refining it. Picking up where they left off on 2006′s critically acclaimed Millenarian, the band began building what would become Sedentary in 2008. Duffy would travel from Georgia to Illinois to write and record with Shellhamer and Norden during sporadic but fruitful creative sessions. “It’s more punk than our last record,” declares Shellhamer. “Rather than nitpicking parts, we rolled with the songs. If we were feeling it, we just did it.”
You’ll feel the sonic gut punch of songs like “City of God” and “Sickening Rebellion,” which bruise, batter and bludgeon brilliantly. Without a full-time bass player during recording (Bocek joined the band post-recording), the band collaborated with a different musician for each song’s bass track. On the incendiary and invasive “Fetal Attraction,” Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher provides bass, a guitar solo and a little personal flare. Shellhamer laughs, “He does that ‘Eat my fuck’ thing at the end of the song. He went way overboard with the bass and guitar solo, and it was ripping.”"
