If you’re still wondering what special token of love to bestow upon your dearest this Valentine’s Day, Dine Alone Records has just solved your problems, albeit a little on the retroactive side. Today they’ve announced the reissue of JUNO award winning band Wintersleep’s first three critically-acclaimed LP’s: Wintersleep, Untitled, and Welcome To The Night Sky.
Wintersleep (2003), Untitled (2005), and Welcome To The Night Sky (2007) have all been out of print for over a decade. The re-issues will be available for pre-order on February 14th, 2018 on 180g standard black vinyl, along with a limited run of 150 colour vinyl copies.
Dine Alone explain they’ve been kicking out the stops on the releases. Working with founding band member and designer Jud Haynes the releases are getting some freshly updated and expanded artwork, housed in a deluxe gatefold. The releases also comes a bonus 7″ that will feature previously unreleased material, including demos, b-sides or bonus tracks from each album. Untitled, in particular, comes with a sixteen page illustrated children’s book.
The band have also disclosed that there’s a limited edition box set coming later this year, to put you in awkward position of deciding to splurge now, or later.
Of course, if you are spending Valentine’s Day alone you can instead choose to delve deeper into that sense of being left out with the knowledge that the band are embarking on a sold-out tour in support of Frightened Rabbit beginning in Chicago on February 16th, 2018.
