ISIS VIDEO, SINGLE, ETC

as some of you may already know, the ISIS "holy tears" single that was scheduled to come out today, has been cancelled. we discovered at the last minute that the first song on the finished version of the single was the wrong song. what should've been "holy tears" was actually "wrists of kings". now while we like both songs, we figured we couldn't very well release a "holy tears" single with out that particular song being on the damn disc. oh well - it'll still come out, we're just not sure when.

in the meantime check out:

this is the myspace page for the guy who directed the video for "holy tears", which is to be included as CD-rom content on the single (assuming it ever comes out), and eventually as part of a future ISIS dvd. the video itself is incredible, at least in my estimation, and dominic has done a lot of other great work, some of which may be sampled via his myspace page.

in other ISIS news, i received one copy of the completed ISIS 12xLP box set today, and i must say i think it turned out splendidly. i'll try to create another post dedicated to that in the next day or so. very excited about that....

I don't know what to say, bad luck i suppose? Too bad.
And just a though, the remix for Holy Tears is done by Melvins or Melvins/Lustmord? I remember that the first news said about those two doing it, but now you tend to mention only Melvins. What's up with that?
and another thing....
OCEANIC DVD!! *faints*

cheers mate, keep up the good work and hope to see you guys in Poland soon

Too bad about the single mishap! I'm very much looking forward to seeing the vid. When you guys coming back to the UK?

I managed to get my hands on the single yesterday, and it's fantastic. The Hailstone video is visualization for Isis I've been waiting for.
Thank you.

Thanks for the update aaron, and I too am interested on how much the box set will cost. Conspiracy records has it priced at 160 euros, so I guess around 230? hopefully cheaper =)

Also, amazon as well as other online stores have the "not in rivers but in drops" remix included on the holy tears one. I'm guessing this was also an error?

oh and COME BACK TO FLORIDA!!
