Dayseeker To Release Deluxe Edition Of “Sleeptalk”, Share Video For Reimagined Version Of “Burial Plot”

Dayseeker will be digitally releasing a deluxe version of their latest album “Sleeptalk” on September 24 (vinyl out December 3). The effort will include the original album tracks, as well as reimagined versions of several songs. A video for a reimagined version of “Burial Plot” featuring Seneca Pettee can be found below:

Frontman Rory Rodriguez said the following about the new take on the track:

“It was so cool getting to work with Daniel Braunstein again and I think we really challenged ourselves to try some different genres and styles of reimagining that we’ve never done on any of our prior deluxe releases. ‘Burial Plot (Reimagined)’ is a deeply personal song I hold very near to my heart and I always thought it would be really interesting to hear it done as a duet. Seneca Pettee was the obvious choice since she already sang on ‘Starving to Be Empty’ on the original album. The strings and piano we added really made it just sound like an entirely different song.”

“Sleeptalk” Deluxe Edition Track Listing:

01. “Drunk”
02. “Crooked Soul”
03. “Burial Plot”
04. “Sleeptalk”
05. “The Embers Glow”
06. “The Color Black”
07. “Already Numb”
08. “Gates of Ivory”

11. “Drunk” (Reimagined)
12. “Burial Plot” (Reimagined)

Imperial Triumphant Release Deluxe Edition Of “Inceste”

Imperial Triumphant have released a deluxe edition of their 2016 EP “Inceste” via Redefining Darkness. Digital copies and pre-orders for a vinyl pressing (out June 25) can be found on Bandcamp.

“Inceste” Deluxe Edition Track Listing:

01. “Libertine”
02. “Kaleidoscopic Orgies”
03. “Oblivion In Morsels”
04. “Breath Of Innocence”
05. “Krokodil” (Chorus)
06. “Nefertiti” (Miles Davis – Bass Cover)
07. “Breath Of Innocence” (Chorus)
08. “La Douleur Exquise (The Exquisite Pain)”

Redefining Darkness commented:

“In April of 2016, we were fortunate enough to partner with then up-in-coming NY Black Metal sensations, Imperial Triumphant, on their Inceste EP. The EP received critical acclaim and took the band to new heights at the time as they experimented even more with the dark and depraved. In regards to EP, the band stated, “Inceste is an interpretation of the works of French aristocrat Marquis de Sade. We wanted to make a record that was sordid, invasive, and child like at times. Extreme highs and lows are everywhere on this EP. The music always reflects the lyrics. Nothing on Inceste is stable. Everything instrument bends and twists and wrenches, forcing its way inside of you.”

With the pandemic hitting the industry hard, the band wanted to stay busy and dove into some creative projects, one of which being the re-issue of Inceste. Every detail was labored over to ensure the band’s ultimate vision for the release was achieved. The Vinyl release was pressed in an edition of 666 in two different variants – Emissions on Black Marble / Blood & Semen – both of which turned out absolutely stunning.

The jacket comes in the form of a lavish gatefold that includes a 12”x24” foldout insert. We all felt it important to make sure the packaging reflected the band’s aesthetic and as such, the gatefold jacket represents the luxury / high class image that Manhattan loves to put on display, while the insert buried within represents the seedy and vile underbelly of the city that keeps itself hidden from most.

We wanted to make sure the CD would not play second fiddle to the vinyl, so we had to make it particularly special. The CD itself is Gold, and comes in a Hardback Digibook with never before seen photography of NYC. Both vinyl and cd formats include bonus tracks, including a bass cover of Miles Davis’ Nefertiti, alongside other haunting musical apparitions.”

Imperial Triumphant added:

“We are thrilled to work with Redefining Darkness once more to put together such a unique piece. It has been a pleasure to bring this 2016 EP back to life in a new way. There are many aspects to explore both visually and sonically so we hope you enjoy the great work.”

“We are really excited about this release of “Set Oceans on Fire”. It’s been a long road to get to this point and the last year certainly provided no shortage of obstacles. One thing that seems evident is that chaos can often times be a catalyst for inspiration and that seemed to be the case for us. We stuck to our goal of writing a ton of new music and managed to shoot a music video for every single song we’ve released. Being isolated with the world at a standstill over the last year the band has really had a chance to developed our own sound and we figured out how to create really good art together, but we absolutely can’t wait to get back out there.”

“This album, and in particular this deluxe edition, is something I’m incredibly proud of. Throughout the process of writing, recording and the subsequent filming of the live stream, I knew we were creating much more than a collection of songs. Much more than a simple streamed performance. This was focused energy. Energy that, to me, is very tangible. And now, more than ever, in an era where human interaction is so limited, art…. be it music, visual or otherwise, is a human connection point. And we need as much of that as possible! I hope everyone enjoys this deluxe edition as much as we enjoy

The Black Queen To Release Fifth Anniversary Edition Of “Fever Daydream”

The Black Queen (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) have announced that they will be releasing a fifth anniversary edition of their debut album “Fever Daydream.” A deluxe digital edition will be available via Bandcamp on February 5, before hitting other digital outlets on February 19. The effort will come with the “original ten songs as well as instrumental and vocal only versions of each track.” Bonus recordings and demos will also be included. Furthermore, pre-orders have also launched for new limited edition vinyl pressings.

Frontman Greg Puciato commented:

“In 20 years of making albums, there are a few that stand-out as being really special. They felt special when they were being made, and they still stand-out after the passing of time. If every album is a point on a timeline, these points are a little bigger than the rest. ‘Fever Daydream‘ is one of those points. We had no idea when we made it whether other people would connect to it in the way that we did, but it turns out that a decent amount of people did.

This was the gateway into a lot for me on the release-side too, the genesis of what would become Federal Prisoner, and the start of a real passion for releasing records, and for owning my output. Personally it was a really transitional time too, with a lot of growth happening, and I can hear all of that in this. We had a special bond as friends and musicians during the years that we spent making this, and a couple of my current closest relationships both personally and professionally were formed during this time.

So we, and I, are proud to re-issue this, in new packaging, with new variants, and some extra stuff on the digital side. Thanks everyone. We hope to see you at some shows before too long. Now back to the new record ;-).”
