We've wanted to press an album on vinyl ever since we started releasing music together as Sleepy Eyes of Death, but we never really had the budget or the opportunity to do anything beyond our standard CD and digital releases. We recently decided that with the help of Kickstarter and some awesome incentives for funding the project, we could finally make pressing a record a reality!
Exclusively packaged for vinyl, DARK/HORIZON compiles both SEOD albums 'Dark Signals' and 'Toward a Damaged Horizon' and includes totally new remixes by Steve Moore (ZOMBI) & others, that won't be available in any other format. The double album will be strictly limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and include a sleek double-gatefold sleeve, colored vinyl, and also a free digital download of all the tracks.
If we meet our goal of $2400, we'll be able to release the album and have it available by June 2011. Since this amount is actually only about half of the total cost of the project, anything that exceeds this goal will help ease the burden of credit cards on our end and also possibly allow us to put even more into DARK/HORIZON, through things like upgrading to 180 gram vinyl.
In addition to the vinyl release, we're also really excited about a bonus album that we'll be offering only this one time through Kickstarter (beginning at the $35 pledge level). LOST CODES features over a dozen unreleased studio tracks, demos, and alternate versions of songs that span from sessions off 'Streetlights to a Ribcage' up through 'Toward a Damaged Horizon'. Again, these are not available anywhere else. LOST CODES will also include liner notes and specific details about each selection and be a fully packaged CD-R album.
Thank you in advance for any help toward completing this project and to anyone who has ever purchased our past albums and come out to our shows!
