isis/melvins split 12" update
above: hand decorated LPs leftover from the first pressing of "wavering radiant". see below for more info.
from the isis news page:
"the isis/melvins split 12" will be released officially on the 13th of this month and available one week early (starting july 6) exclusively from vacation vinyl in los angeles. vacation will have a version of the 12" signed by all members of isis and the melvins as well as a limited number of LPs with hand drawn artwork by the folks responsible for the "wavering radiant" album art (aaron tuner and faith coloccia). the LPs with hand drawn artwork are leftovers from the original pressing of the "wavering radiant" 2xLP - there was an overrun of the side A/B record with no side C/D record to go with it, so instead of letting those go to waste they're now serving as backgrounds for some drawings and text based on themes from the album. both are available to in-store customers at vacation vinyl and are likely to run out quickly. the regular version of the 12" should be available at finer retail stores in the US and europe as well as select webstores, distros, etc. the split is a release from hydra head records, features 2 new/unreleased songs from isis ("way through woven branches" and "the pliable foe"), 2 alternate/remixed versions of songs from the new melvins "the bride screamed murder" album ("pig house" and "i'll finish you off"), and collaborative artwork/design by mackie osborne and a. turner."
