Portishead have just finished up a string of stunning NY area appearances, including headlining shows at the I’ll Be Your Mirror ATP Festival in Asbury Park, NJ, which the Village Voice called “heavenly and Mephistophelian”. To keep the experience fresh for fans, they’re releasing single ‘Chase the Tear’ worldwide, as a 12” vinyl release for the first time on November 14th, 2011 by XL Recordings. It’s a song they performed live on the Jimmy Fallon show just last night, October 5th.
200 signed copies will be on sale in advance at New York’s Independent Label Market on October 8th. The record will also contain a version of the track by Toronto’s Doldrums.

The vinyl, with its full proceeds going to Amnesty International, will also come with a download code to download the mp3 version, which will also be available to buy at Portishead live shows.
