Surprise! Not only does today herald the vinyl release of 'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You', the stunning 4th album by Down I Go but also the digital release/vinyl preorder for the bands 'Iceland Extras' LP!
'Iceland Extras' combines 4 additional recordings from the 'You're Lucky God...' album sessions (1 original and covers by Komeda/Fantomas, Pariso and You Win Again Gravity) together with the previously unreleased Sammy Davis Junior Junior EP. As Alan DIG explains -
"Sammy Davis Junior Junior came about as one of my many attempts to break up Down I Go. I wanted to start a new band, Ben forced me to compromise by simultaneously writing two EPs, one for Down I Go...
We are very happy to today launch preorders for Eulogy's 'Eternal Worth' screenprinted 12"/DL & Down I Go's 'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You' LP/DL ahead of their respective 06/11 & 23/10 release dates. Both are available with exclusive shirts. Digital for Down I Go is available now with all preorders!
Please welcome Eulogy to Holy Roar Records. We will be releasing their debut EP on 12"/DL 6/11/15.
Sometimes utter destruction is needed to manifest a stronger rebirth. This is a brutal, visceral distillation of intelligent metal/hardcore.
1. Doubt Shadows 2. Deaf Cult 3. Birth Coma 4. Beyond The Skin
Single sided 12” vinyl with an intricate ‘black hole' screenprinted B side that almost hypnotizes when spun on a turntable. A download will also be available of the EP along with the band’s previous two releases reimagined with fresh digital booklets.
Holy Roar Records is very excited to announce the impending arrival of Down I Go's fourth album 'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You' to be released August 28th (digital) & October 23rd (limited white vinyl).
Whilst possibly one of the most unlikely albums to ever materialise, with members living in Stockholm, Chicago and Toronto - due to the wonders of Kickstarter and Icelandic studio-owning fans - it has happened. As Alan DIG put it "Why can't anyone let this fucking band split up?" Also, don't worry - Kickstarter was used to fund the bands flights to Iceland and not for awful reasons.
Preorders for the vinyl (and a shirt of course), along with a full stream...
