2024 Remastered Edition of the band's 1981 debut. FIRST-EVER U.S. PRESSING on limited edition Black and White split-colored vinyl. Pitchfork cited "Stands for deciBels" among its list of Top 100 Albums of the 1980s. “The missing link between the proto-power pop of Big Star and the college rock of unheralded gem”. The dB’s carved out a nice little niche in the genre of power pop while straddling the line between punk and new wave.” -Pop Matters. “[T]he dB’s combined a reverence for British pop and arty post-punk leanings that alternate between minimalism and a love of quirky embellishment, odd sounds, and unexpected twists; Stands for deciBels is clearly a collegiate pop experiment, but rarely is experimentation so enjoyable and irresistibly catchy” - AllMusic. To support this remastered and first-ever US vinyl release, the band will be on tour in the Fall of 2024 in the U.S.
