    I’m not a fan of the first single either. Sounds like Imagine Dragons after a few cans of Irn Bru

    Without old tugjob around to give minute by minute updates on how many copies of each variant are left at different retailers is it even worth it?

    Checked this out as these guys are headlining an alldayer in London in two weeks. Somehow this kind of reminds me of Antidotes-era foals sans vocals. Gonna check the other 5 acts I don't know before I commit to going but it was a pretty chill listen.

    Stress On The Sky got a reaction from mrdoctor in PO Now: Katatonia - City Burials   
    City Burials is the band’s eleventh studio album and its first since 2016’s haunting The Fall of Hearts. With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials represents the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life. 
     
    Compiled into one of their most important modern works and statements to date, the finely-honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss and ruin. Beyond their core creative duo, Katatonia are very much a full-blown band, and the chemistry between Jonas, Anders and their band mates – bassist Niklas Sandin, drummer Daniel Moilanen and most recent recruit, guitarist Roger Öjersson – has never sounded more potent, with City Burials being the first album Katatonia have made since Öjersson became a full-time member. 
     
    Inspired by an injection of fresh blood into Katatonia’s creative brew, City Burials is an album that sees the band reclaim part of their heavy metal roots, via several moments of exuberant, old school classicism, deftly woven into these new songs’ kaleidoscopic fabric. 
     
    City Burials was produced by Nyström/Renkse and recorded at Soundtrade Studios, Tri-Lamb Studios and The City Of Glass, throughout October and November 2019, with engineering work handled by Karl Daniel Lidén. 
     
    The album also features a guest appearance by Anni Bernhard, the voice behind Stockholm based act Full of Keys. 
     
    Lasse Hoile’s artwork imagery represents the ongoing era of the Dead End King.

    Stress On The Sky got a reaction from Mattallurgist in Mike Vennart Thread (Vennart / Oceansize / British Theatre)   
    Just an FYI to all you fellow Vennart fans theres a new single called Dick Privilege, full things streamable on his site. Video/Download/7" Gammon coloured vinyl drops tomorrow 9AM (I'm assuming that's GMT/UK time zone).

    The track is absolutely filthy sounding. Reminds me of Oceansize's rhythm section's side project KONG. 
     
    Not sure if this means another album is on the way, I know Biffy spent most of last year doing that score and recording album 8 with a view to that dropping this year but they still record in the studio as a three piece as far as I understand. Doesn't make the time frame implausible for Mike to have finished something more than just a 7", what it may mean though is that if there is something bigger in the works it might not get toured upon release or it could be held back from release until it's possible to tour in support of it. 
     
    Purely speculation because any Vennart news makes my pants fizz.

    Not gonna lie before Mamaleek & Giles Corey were confirmed I was still weighing up resubbing just for Midwife. Her debut Like Author, Like Daughter is just perfect. Highly recommend everyone checks it out. Think its OOP now and I broke my "No more pricey imports" rule for it. Was very happy when they announced she'd signed to the label.  Check it here if you like:

    Between this and the sprain debut it might be a more mellow year overall for the sub but I'm cool with that.

    I’ll definitely check out that debut of hers.  Looks like OG copies are relatively cheap and it was just reissued in 2019, too.
     
    I’m all for a fuzzed out slowcore roster this year, if that’s what it’s coming down to.  I have faith that they’ll diversify their genres enough, but I wouldn’t complain if the majority was a slow burn.

    Stress On The Sky got a reaction from monsterrod in Newbie Collector Question   
    Its a total guess its probably somewhere in the thousands, the only way to get any clarification would be to email the label directly and hope someone gets back to you. Then you have to hope that the number they give you stays the same, its not uncommon practice for an item to be put up for pre-order with a limit to have its limit increased and with them not posting numbers publicly its even easier for them to do this.
     
    Ultimately just like Tim said above if you get into this hobby of collecting records buy what you like and don't worry about value or scarcity. You never know what will end up being worth a lot down the line, just like any investment its a gamble because you need to land in the sweet spot where demand is higher than supply. An album that is worth 300 bucks for years can always wind up becoming available again or reprinted and then wind up being worth 20.
     
    Pick the records you love with the intention of playing them and you always win.

    There's also an extreme membership which includes the upcoming reprints of Giles Corey and the anniversary version of Planning For Burials - Leaving (which will now be a 3lp). Gonna go for the basic cos I don't need a second GC box n then chance it to pick up every variant of Leaving cos I'm just a silly person.

    Stress On The Sky reacted to jeromium in [PO Soon] TOOL - Fear Inoculum ?xLP   
    Hype faded and I don't need any physical media at this point, not even vinyl. I guess that's because I'm more picky about what I buy lately, due to reduced vinyl listening time, budget, and having combined household with my lady who is not a  Tool fan. And after about 3 spins I determined it's 7/10 material, nicely done but I'm not gonna play it often enough going forward. I've changed and they haven't really.

    See I refused to buy it because of this and hearing that yet again the 2nd edition is over 30 means I'll probably stick with the copy I half inched off the net. I'm not 5 so the idea of a bunch of cards with pictures of human cross sections that I'd look at once doesn't appeal. I'd feel bad but they don't need my money.

    Stress On The Sky got a reaction from tonyfranciosa in PO Now: Arab Strap - Philophobia   
    Not sure if this will resonate with anyone here but Chemikal Underground have just announced a re-issue of Arab Strap's second album Philophobia, the first vinyl reprint in 21 years.  Personally love this band and they quietly re-issued the debut album "The Week Never Starts Around Here" earlier this year so maybe this is the start of a full run of re-issues, although I'm not sure if "Elephant Shoe" will get the same love as that was on Go Beat! not Chemikal.
     
    Won't paste the album art cos it's a nude painted portrait of Aidan's girlfriend from back in 1998. I mean it's not really scandalous but a lot of you guys scan this site at work.
     
    Here's the word from the horses mouth:
    Available to preorder now and is released on the 6th of December. The first 100 preorders include a signed postcard by Aidan & Malcolm.
    Twenty-one years after its initial release, Arab Strap’s second album Philophobia is reissued on vinyl, having been out of print for twenty years. The 2LP heavyweight vinyl comes in a wide spined sleeve and includes a 320kbps MP3 download card.
    Philophobia was recorded on the outskirts of Glasgow in the early incarnation of CHEM19 Studios with engineer/producer Paul Savage & at Cava Studios in Glasgow with engineer Geoff Allan. Initially released in 1998, it was the follow up to the band’s 1996 debut The Week Never Starts Round Here.
    Instrumentally ambitious, Philophobia is adorned with sepulchral guitar, trumpet, cello & Scottish rainfall, providing a most beautiful backdrop to Aidan Moffat’s bold lyrical presentation as he articulates experiences most of us are too embarrassed to even think about; confessional, intimate, insightful and hilarious, ‘Philophobia’ remains a literate & musical revelation.
    ‘Philophobia’ - (from Greek "φιλέω-φιλώ" (love) and "φοβία" (phobia)), is the fear of falling in love / emotional attachment.
     
    Preorder from the label here:
    https://shop.chemikal.co.uk/browse/chemikal-arab-strap/products/arab-strap-philophobia-vinyl-reissue-2019 (Warning again link has the art which could be construed as NSFW)
     
    £20 for a double lp is a pretty good deal. I imagine it will make its way to other retailers too.
