Maisha releasing new Open The Gates 12″ on 100% recycled vinyl



Produced in partnership with The Vinyl Factory, for RSD 2020’s second drop.

Maisha are releasing a new 12” called Open The Gates, via Brownswood this September.

Manufactured in partnership with The Vinyl Factory, and pressed on 100% recycled vinyl, the record features the group’s 16-minute epic ‘Open The Gates’ with a live take of ‘Osiris’ on the flip.

It follows Maisha’s collaborative album with Gary Bartz, which was released earlier this year.

A recently published Vinyl Factory Manufacturing manifesto explains: “our aim is to be recognised as the most environmentally conscious pressing plant while delivering world-class product. Each day sets us new challenges and presents us with new opportunities and small acts when multiplied can make a WORLD of a difference”.

Open The Gates will be available as a Record Store Day 2020 exclusive release, to coincide with its second drop date on Saturday 26th September, followed by online availability at select online shops from 6pm BST.
