014: What is old shall become new again - our S/T 2008 EP finally gets a vinyl release

Considering that I've had somewhere in the ballpark of 75-100 messages over the past couple of years inquiring as to when/if our 2008 debut record would be seeing a release on vinyl, I'm happy to say that Creator-Destructor Recs is now taking pre-orders for the LIMITED first-time vinyl pressing of what was originally released through Forgotten Empire as the "Voyager" EP.

Since it's been a long wait for those of you who have been looking to get the EP in this format, we wanted to make sure that it was worth everyone's while. The 12" LPs feature completely re-done artwork by our vocalist, Devin (under his 'Portal' design moniker), which kept a few select elements of the original layout but is honestly a much better fit than what was originally included for the CD release. A preview of the front/back of the jacket can be seen below; a full-color insert is also included. The release is limited to two pressings of 125 each on Transparent Purple and Bone (off-white) colored wax, and we've included a bonus track, "Deathless", which was recorded in March in our drummer Keith's studio.

The new bonus track "Deathless" included in this release is available to stream via our Bandcamp Page, so check that out if you haven't already. Bit of a departure from what we've recorded in the past, but we think it's a worthy addition to the EP.

You can order yourself a copy now on the splash page of Creator-Destructor.com. Again, these are limited to 125 units of each color, and when they're gone, they're gone. The records are slated to ship on June 3rd.

Also, dates for our short west coast run w/At Our Heels in June have been finalized for a while now, but I'll re-post them here:

June 4th @ The Hemlock- San Francisco, CA w/ At Our Heels, The Funeral Pyre
June 5th @ 105 Pioneer- Santa Cruz, CA w/ Heartsounds, At Our Heels, The Funeral Pyre

you guys rule! pretty much one of the most overlooked band i came across the last year. your sound is huge and the vinyls are superb! Creator Destructor seems to be a good label for you guys, hope that both, youu and the label, will get attention to a bigger audience! you are pretty much unknown in europe, that should change.
