With its black & white graphics and darkly shaded sound, Prints of Darkness was bound to be an album that would be misunderstood in its first incarnation, but was equally bound to be embraced by those who "got it." Mastermind Brian Healy, working in collaboration with Michael Knott (L.S. Underground, Aunt Bettys), Mike Sauerbrey (The Choir, L.S.U.), and Gym Nicholson & Ojo Taylor (Undercover), created an underground masterpiece, tipping the musical hat to artists like David Bowie and Bauhaus, The Cure and Scott Walker. Dead Artist Syndrome’s Prints of Darkness is an album deserving of reappraisal for the chances it took and the boundaries it shook. (DW Dunphy)

Like so many releases of the time, Prints Of Darkness was never released on vinyl…until now. Lo-Fidelity Records is proud to announce that Dead Artist Syndrome’s debut masterpiece Prints Of Darkness will finally be released on remastered 180g vinyl, deluxe CD, and deluxe download, but we need your help to get there.

You have questions. We have answers....

Is the band involved? ~ Yes. Brian Healy has lent his support/advice for the project, and will be approving the remaster and any bonus tracks we include before any CD's or Vinyl are manufactured.

Are you selling downloads? ~ Yes. Plus, each Vinyl purchase will also include a download of the album. ALL downloads will include bonus material. When everything ships, buyers will receive a download message via Kickstarter where users can download the remastered album in mp3 320, FLAC, WAV, or ALAC (Apple Lossless) files, and each download will contain PDF files of the album art/cover.

How many vinyl variations are you selling? ~ We're offering a total of 3 color variants - (from right to left) Black, Half Black/Half White, and Black & White Swirl, each limited to 100 copies pressed.


What kind/size of T-Shirts are being used in the campaign? ~ Our manufacturer will use BLACK pre-shrunk, 100% cotton, heavyweight Fruit Of The Loom shirts in mens sizes Small through 5XL. We will also produce the design on "Ladies Cut" t-shirts in sizes X-Small through 2XL.

You are only making 300 CDs. Will they be replicated or (burned) CDRs ~ They will all be replicated CDs....NOT CDR's.

Will there be any bonus tracks? ~ Yes. As of the campaign launch we've confirmed the following bonus tracks will be added to the release, with possibly more to come as Brian searches his archives.  
 
The vinyl pressing will contain the following bonus tracks: 

Surrender [session track]
Rich Girl [session track] 

The download & CD will contain the following bonus tracks (with possibly more to come):

Surrender [session track] 
Rich Girl [session track] 
Dancing Without Touching [live, Cornerstone 1990] 
Amy [live, Cornerstone 1990] 
Hope [live, Cornerstone 1990] 
Dance with Me [live, Cornerstone 1990]
Think of Me (Song for Paula) [live, Cornerstone 1990] 

If we meet the goal, how long will it be before I get my order? ~ April 2018 is the projected shipping date.  This could change based on manufacturing times.  This is a projected date - not carved in stone.
