I thought some bands still release some vinyls of their albums.

Or at least, I heard that before...

Well i know you can still buy vinyls, and yes, new ones are made. Apparently AJFA was reissued on vinyl earlier this year, although that's about the only metal/rock vinyl I've seen produced this year. plenty of dance stuff if you like that..remember I'm in UK though.

Find a local music store.

Usually you have to find them with a searchbar, a magnifying glass, and a metal detector, but when you do, you'll find some gems to play on your turntable.

Regardless of your terrible spelling, Yes, some bands do make Vinyl's of their albums.

Any group that does electronic music or hip hop releases vinyls, my brother has tons along with some goodies like Bob Marley and War.

But a lot of bands are releasing their albums on vinyl, it's becoming pretty popular again so you just gotta know what stores to look in, usually high-end record stores like Virgin Records.

I think vinyl has an interesting quality, to me it sounds more real than CD, vinyl just seems to pick up on sound better than electronic media does.

EDIT: I just remembered, Hot Topic usually has a lot of vinyl albums by punk bands, though I once saw one for the Wu Tang Clan and another by NWA

Yes, they do still make vinyl. Both reissues and new albums. On vinyl I own:

Beck - Sea Change
Weezer - Red Album
Mindless Self Indulgence - If
Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
The Soundtrack from Juno

I've seen plenty of albums released on vinyl. Metal, Indie, Punk, Classic Rock reissues, even a Justin Timberlake album.

I went to the huge Zavvi in London some time ago and they have a huge shelf full of vinyls and turntables and stuff. It was awesome.

I know that Coheed & Cambria's latest album was released on vinyl.

Apparently theres been a revival of vinyl because of audiophiles.
