Rival Schools have teamed with Run For Cover Records to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a deluxe reissue of their second LP, Pedals, along with represses of its sister album, Found, and the band's debut LP, United By Fate--all due out September 20th.

The Pedals (Deluxe) reissue provides a much-deserved new look at Rival Schools' sophomore LP, and includes three previously unreleased b-sides along with a contemporaneous stripped down live studio session recorded in between shows on tour in Germany. The packaging features a 2xLP gatefold recreation of the original artwork. The Found repress is a recreation of the original limited pressing, commemorating Rival Schools' quasi "lost" album, now available again for collectors and new fans alike, along with another new pressing the their classic debut album, United By Fate.

Featuring a lineup of NYHC greats--guitarist/vocalist Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today Quicksand), drummer Sammy Siegler (Youth of Today, Judge, CIV), bassist Cache Tolman (Iceburn, Institute) and Ian Love (Burn, Atlantic/Pacific)--Rival Schools' trailblazing career has led the way for in post-hardcore, seamlessly blending the sheer kinetic energy of aggressive music with deeply melodic rock songwriting.
