Milford’s Static Era Records music store will celebrate Record Store Day on April 23rd with exclusive releases including tracks from Taylor Swift, Elvis, The Cure, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks and the Foo fighters.

Record Store Day dates back to 2008 as a way for the people who make up the record store world – staff, customers and artists – to come together and celebrate the unique role of independent stores.

“Having been personally involved with Record Store Day since 2017, we are thrilled to be a participating store and to bring Record Store Day to Milford, Connecticut for the first time,” said Static Era Owner Jay Reason. “Local record enthusiasts can now shop right here in Milford and enjoy local restaurants and other businesses while they’re there.”

Today, there are stores participating in Record Store Day on every continent except Antarctica. Typical offers for the music holiday include exclusive vinyl and CD releases, as well as various promotional products specially designed for the day.

“We are also being proactive in designating an RSD release date of June 18,” Record Store Day organizers said in a statement. “This will serve as a backstop for street dates for titles that are part of the Record Store Day celebration, but for a number of reasons beyond our control, cannot hit stores on April 23.”
