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."

They look amazing. Is there any chance you feel like shipping a hand drawn artwork version to Australia?

I had to at least ask...

Aaron - Just wanted to say that the split record is amazingly beautiful - I picked it up on your final stop here in D.C. It was a night I will never forget. I hope to be able to pick up the autographed version of the record from Vaca Vinyl as soon as it goes on sale. Was actually hoping to see you all outside the 930 Club but didn't. Thanks for the memories..

Man... Those look sick! Wish I still lived in LA and could pick one of those up. Is Vacation going to sell any of the splits online? I missed the preorder from BCD and was looking for another place to score one...

What a great day, Took my son and got to Vacation Vinyl in the drizzle just in time to be lucky enough to get one of the signed EP's and the hand drawn vinyl. The guys at Vacation were very cool and love the store, Thanks again Isis & Vacation.

Great stuff man. I finally caught my first ISIS show (your second night in boston), and just in the nick of time too. Your live performance exceeded every expectation I had.. Also picked up Wavering Radiant double LP and have been rockin it quite a bit recently. Thanks so much for your amazing creative output, from one artist to another.
