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 ;-).”

Smashing Pumpkins’ “Machina II” Reissue Might Feature 80 Songs

During a recent interview with Radio.com, Billy Corgan offered an update on Smashing Pumpkins’ reissue of “Machina II / The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music.” According to him, the full project may feature up to 80 songs.

Corgan said the following:

“It’s being mastered now. The album reconstituted comes in at about 50-plus tracks and with the extra tracks I think with the whole project will be somewhere about in the 80 track range.”

“It was written to be kind of like a musical, but because it was never finished, it was like shooting a movie that wasn’t fully edited right. Machina I was like one edit of the footage, and Machina II was some of the leftover footage – but there was even more stuff leftover. So, this was my attempt, 20 years later, to kind of finish the movie and in the process of trying to finish the movie, realizing the movie can never be finished because a lot of stuff wasn’t finished.”

“Some stuff I was able to finish and some stuff is unfinished that I present. It’s almost like a sketch but in the aggregate of listening to it you kind of get the sense of the movie I was after.”

Corgan also added that the record is reflective of the band’s story from that time:

“On the one hand you have a band that’s breaking up and the band knows it’s breaking up so there’s this kind of sorrow that hangs over everything, but on the other hand we’re highly productive,” said the singer. “It’s like notating a breakup or something. It’s a very odd record and one that I don’t know if I could ever make again if I tried but I’m glad it’s there because now it will be presented in its best possible light.”

Halestorm To Reissue “Live In Philly 2010” On Vinyl

The effort has been remastered by Ted Jensen and it will be limited to 5,000 copies. Pre-orders can be found HERE and they are expected to ship on December 11. Lzzy Hale commented:

“10 years ago was the beginning of a new lifetime. We had just released our first album on Atlantic Records. It was a time of discovering who we were, not just to ourselves…but who we were to the world. When I listen to this live album, I still remember the feeling of beautiful panic before hitting the stage at the TLA, a place where I had experienced the live shows of many of my idols as a young Pennsylvania girl. Most of these songs were relatively new and some we were performing live for the first time. I can hear the growling hunger of the four of us. We were ravenous and hell bent on proving ourselves on a new level. This show was a step forward toward a future unknown…the rest is history.”

Alcest To Release 10th Anniversary Edition Of “Écailles de Lune” In December

Alcest will be releasing a 10th anniversary edition of “Écailles de Lune” on December 18. The effort can be pre-ordered in various formats including a “Sand Edition” box set and an “Ocean Edition” box set.

The following was said about the box sets:

“The strictly limited ‘Sand Edition’ (100 copies) box set includes among many other collector’s items, a crystal clear hand-crafted vinyl that contains real sand from the beach that Neige used to frequent while writing these songs! Less flamboyantly luxurious but nonetheless beautiful comes the ‘Ocean Edition’ with a sea-blue-black vinyl.

Both editions include the hardcover CD book, which is also available separately and offers a preface by Neige, liner notes, artwork, and more. In addition to these editions, there will be more Gatefold vinyl in different colors.”

Stéphane “Neige” Paut also commented:

“For this album, I was especially inspired by the sea, the energy, and the exaltation that you can feel when you sit in front of the ocean at night. The sea appears terribly fascinating, full of secrets, beautiful and frightening at the same time.”

TesseracT will be releasing a 4LP+2CD box set edition of their 2013 album “Altered State” on November 6. Pre-orders are available HERE. The band commented:

“For the band, we always felt like we hit a perfect balance with the presentation on ‘Altered State‘. And that the concept was made even more striking in a gatefold vinyl package. There’s just something very tactile and real about that iteration. We’re all really looking forward to it being available in that format again.”
