KING DIAMOND's 'Christmas' Single To Be Re-Released For Record Store Day Black Friday

Just in times for the holidays, KING DIAMOND's "No Presents For Christmas" single is being re-released on vinyl for the first time in over 25 years. It will be made available exclusively through independent retail as part of Record Store Day Black Friday (November 23).

November 23 will mark the second year of Record Store Day Black Friday, with participating stores offering their hardcore customers limited-edition vinyl, CDs, DVDs, box sets, and even a set of music-themed trading cards.

Record Store Day celebrates the culture of independent record stores by playing host to in-store events/performances, signings and special product releases on a global scale.

"No Presents For Christmas" was originally released on December 25, 1985, with the track "Charon" on the B-side. It was the first music released by Danish heavy metal singer King Diamond's then-new band after the breakup of MERCYFUL FATE.

One of KING DIAMOND's most well-known songs, "No Presents For Christmas" can also be found on the reissue of KING DIAMOND's first album, "Fatal Portrait".
