OLD MAN GLOOM "NO" ALBUM ART
Above: images from the LP layout for the Old Man Gloom album "NO".
The drawings made for this are based on original monographs by Faith Coloccia. I made collages from that set of drawings with added textures from various sources. Faith created the type treatments and assisted with the design as well. The LP version is a regular/non-gatefold jacket, with an oversized 11" x 11" booklet, all on uncoated stock. The tour version of the LP substituted a xerox insert in place of the booklet, and had hand stamped labels as well. The "official" release date for the regular LP as well as the CD and cassette is June 26th via Hydra Head Records. Pre-order for that is up now.
Also - massive gratitude to everyone who attended and played the recent Old Man Gloom shows on the East Coast. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and appreciate everyone who helped make the tour possible. Thank you.
