Because cassettes are the new vinyl (not really, but maybe, kind of!) and crippling ’90s nostalgia is real, SRC Vinyl is prepping to reissue four popular Blink-182 albums in the retro format. Dude Ranch; Enema of the State; The Mark, Tom and Travis Show; and the band's self-titled 2003 album will be available as limited-edition tapes beginning next month. All will go for $11.99, with three different cosmetic variations for every release. Cool-slash-weird-slash-random? Whatever, not as weird as Tom DeLonge and aliens.

Here's all the info you'll need, including pre-order links and the number of units coming for each (via Modern Vinyl):
