Glory be…Good old Southern Lord, they’re going to re-issue The Clarity on 12″. In February 2017. Can’t Christmas come, and then go already?
There’s no pre-order stuff available yet….just this info to whet your appetite. I’d suggest keeping an eye open on Southern Lord’s site.
“Initially released digitally as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program in 2014, The Clarity is the first new Sleep track the band released since their critically-adored, 1998-released Dopesmoker album. Afterward, the band issued a very limited run of the song on vinyl which was sold exclusively at their live shows and the band’s online store. Having been out-of-print in physical format since, Southern Lord will now re-release the mammoth track for official distribution.
Recorded by Neurosis’ Noah Landis and mastered by John Golden, The Clarity, the near ten-minute-long has been re-cut by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering for this new pressing, which will see release on 180-gram 12” vinyl pressed at RTI. The B-side of the platter features a special etching of the artwork by David V. D’Andrea (Samaritan Press), and will be housed in a heavyweight picture disc-style sleeve, silkscreened with the Sleep logo.”
