Any word who will be releasing this or you think they will self-release & do digital only? (hope not)

Bird's Robe Records seems like a good fit, or even Hobbledehoy, but I am totally clueless as to how the whole business process works.  Sheath really had us pumped for Subsets & Cale:Drew vinyl - I don't lose any sleep over it, but it would be nice to see this happen one day.

When I spoke with Maurice, he said they were entertaining Translation Loss Records and some local New Zealand label.  That was all I was able to get out of him.  So, no idea haha

jfc how did c:d and solace never happen? someone tell these guys that i’ll straight up do it for them and they can keep all the profit, i just want em to exist at this point 

*Solace repress and C:D press, right?  At least with Solace, it exists and you can chase it down on vinyl if you want to shell out.  It’d be so nice to have SOS and C:D on the shelf someday, though.

They were in the works before Mylene had their internal drama / meltdown and completely dissolved.  Such a damn shame.  Those 2 albums and the couple of LPs from Evpatoria Report are probably the biggest “maybe someday…” wishlist records from my post-rock years.

Got excited to see this post bumped, and then I walk in to more shaking fists at clouds. dammit guys, you're killin' me.

C'mon someone said they'd press the records themselves for free that's progress!

 

Also holy shit was that Mylene Sheath meltdown wild. Probably the weirdest and most incompetent label dissolution I've seen in my life. And that includes Mightier Than Sword.

Yeah that's what I meant, I knew Solace existed it's just prohibitively expensive and may as well not exist! If anybody has a connect with those dudes, give 'em my contact I guess lol. Otherwise, let's just hope the new album yields old reissues.

I didn't catch any of TMS' shit, what happened there

Lindsay and/or Joel were having some serious mental health issues. Basically collecting money for projects and sales and not shipping or doing anything. It was messy, shitty, and just sad. I hope they are in a better place now, but they needed to come clean and end the label stuff a LOT earlier than when it eventually imploded.

I also feel like they were splitting up as a couple, and Joel was using the label’s social media platforms to post really cryptic messages, unrelated to any music.  Like one day, a mock-up for a pre-order dropping at the end of the week, and the next day a photo of a field accompanied by “Thinking of her and simpler times.”  Probably exaggerating a bit here, but hopefully someone can kind of attest.  It was awkward for everyone involved – them especially, but loyal fans too.

So I knew Solace was always a desirable record, but I hadn’t eyed its Discogs sale history in a while.  Damn.  There was a time when the Conspiracy red variant had sold for like $200, and the Mylene copy had gone for $90 at most.  Now I see that same Mylene variant has fetched $300, which is nutty.  (Especially since I think the Conspiracy packaging is way nicer.)  Severely due for a repress, no doubt.  Have you tried reaching out to the band directly on Facebook or anything?

This is what happened except it was the other way around. Joel disappeared and Lindsay was posting weird cryptic posts with butterflies and spiders. It was pretty sad.
