Touché Amoré Re-Record Debut Album “…To The Beat Of A Dead Horse” For New 10th Anniversary Vinyl Set


0

Touché Amoré will be releasing a limited edition deluxe vinyl pressing of their debut album “…To The Beat Of A Dead Horse” on August 09th. In addition to the original 2009 version of the album, the band more recently entered the studio to re-record the effort, with both versions of the album included in the set.

The special pressing will be limited to 1500 copies and comes with a bonus 148 page book chronicling the band’s early history. Thursday‘s Geoff Rickly, who is among the guests featured on the aforementioned album, provided the foreword to the book. Also featured are photos, flyers, a copied email of a past band member quitting and more.

The band’s vocalist Jeremy Bolm commented of the set:

“We always wanted to have a hardbound book version like all of our other albums, so we waited patiently for the anniversary to make this special. It comes with two LPs. The original album from 2009, as well as a newly re-recorded version which was recorded by Zach Tuch (engineer on our song “Green“) and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge).

You might be asking ‘Why re-record this album?’ Mostly its because we physically couldn’t remix and remaster the 2009 version due to all the files being lost when the hard drive containing them crashed. We also just loved the idea of Elliot and Tyler getting to play on this album as they weren’t in the band at the time. We wanted the songs to sound like how we’ve been playing them these last bunch of years.

Faster and with more energy. So thats what you get here. Geoff Rickly (Thursday) and Jeff Eaton (Modern Life Is War) both stepped up to re-record their guest spots too. True fucking heroes. This project took over a year of work and was carefully laid out by Nick Steinhardt with reimagined cover art by Bart Balboa (Birds in Row). This is a one time pressing of this deluxe version, limited to 1500 copies. We hope you enjoy.”
