HAVE A NICE LIFE'S DEATHCONSCIOUSNESS RE-ISSUE COMING 9/16 FROM THE FLENSER
80ww_Screenshot20140702at81425AM.png
 
In 2008, Have A Nice Life released their now cult classic Deathconsciousness LP to a whimper and critical non-interest.  Six years after its release, the band followed up with 2014's stunner The Unnatural World and Deathconsciousness became a force of influence and fanatic obsession. Seamlessly blending with unparalleled depth and weight, shoegaze, post punk, new wave, industrial and noise, the album was originally released on Enemies List Home Recordings (founded by HANL members Dan and Tim). It has since floated in and out of production, with the last instantly out-of-print vinyl pressing occurring in 2009.  Now, longtime HANL collaborator The Flenser will re-issue Deathconsciousness with deluxe packaging, including a lengthy accompanying zine and colored vinyl.  Have A Nice Life commented, “Working with Flenser lets us keep things comfortable on our end, while also pressing enough copies to actually meet the need and not creating an artificially-inflated collector’s market, as happened with some of our past releases.”   
 
The Flenser's reissue of Deathconsciousness will be accompanied by a 75-page booklet detailing the dark and forgotten history of the Antiochean cult.  Blurring the lines between novella, liner notes, and academic text, the zine itself presents an engrossing narrative.  Deathconsciousness is rhythmic, primal and expansive and is a cult-post-punk masterpiece; a mediation on death, loss and unrequited love.  Deathconsciousness feels more fresh and engaging with every listen and has held up as a remarkable piece of art. Fans of Have A Nice Life exhibit both cultic thought and action for good reason. It is perhaps a fanbase as dark and mysterious as the Antiochean cult, the album itself revolves around. Now The Flenser is honored to rereleaseDeathconsciousness a gorgeous and disarming contribution to the modern lexicon for a larger audience.

ADDITIONAL INFO
 
The reissue of Deathconsciousness will come in a thick case-wrapped gatefold jacket. The jacket features a new layout by Niels Geybels with some additional text by the band. All variations of the album come with the 70+ page zine made from the same files as earlier editions. The lacquers were cut by Dave at Lucky Lacquers. This is a much louder and more dynamic cut than the previous issue of the album.

"...Have A Nice Life commented, “Working with Flenser lets us keep things comfortable on our end, while also pressing enough copies to actually meet the need and not creating an artificially-inflated collector’s market, as happened with some of our past releases.” "

 

Then there should be no colored variant and do Black vinyl only runs of /2000 or /5000

I think the last Enemies List subscription e-mail said that the next one will reveal the date and time that this will go up. That'd be swell.

Oh, I'm not on their mailing list (which I should fix that), but that would make sense if that's where the source of this post is!

I did, there's no source. It's not on the Flenser's website and I didn't get an email from their mailing list.

 

What's posted in the OP is the press release sent out to music mags and sites. I'm on their distro list for my site and received it so I can confirm that it's 100% legit.

 

Get your F5 keys ready on 7/9.
