One Direction Goes ’80s Rock Metal for Limited-Edition Vinyl
It’s not even Thursday, but the boys of One Direction are throwing back the signature looks of an ’80s metal band!
Zayn, Niall, Louis, Liam, and Harry have traded in their clean-cut looks for an edgier “metaled-out” demeanor — completed with untamed long locks and skin-tight spandex — for the cover of their limited-edition vinyl.
The five-piece group is slated to release the Midnight Memories vinyl on April 19 for their special Record Store Day release and it includes two tracks: “Midnight Memories,” and a live performance of “Rock Me.” And most importantly, the vinyl will also include some never-before-seen images of the world’s hottest boy band!
Fans also have one more thing to look forward to because Liam and Louis have been in the studio writing and creating songs for their fourth studio album.
The two songwriters of the group also worked with Good Charlotte during their most recent trip to Los Angeles and Directioners could only wonder if their sound for their upcoming album would change.
Louis was very thrilled to work with the American rock band, so he took to Twitter to express his excitement:
Great working with the Good Charlotte boys today !!

And with their highly-anticipated (and sold-out) Where We Are World Stadium Tour kicking off in less than two months, the “Story of My Life” crooners are gearing up to hit the roads, again.
Alrighty then… Back to work. Can’t wait to get into rehearsals back on the road.

There are only a limited amount of 1D vinyls, so be sure to quickly grab a copy on the site when the time comes … but if you’re unable to get their retro collectible, they will announce which stores will sell this exclusive vinyl at a later date.
