First things first: after a short break and some time to take care of our recent offspring (3 new additions to the Hype-families, 2 girls, 1 boy, in case you’re keeping count) we can assure you the beast has risen from hibernation! Unless the Mayas prove us wrong expect some fresh releases early 2013! Stay tuned for more info soon.
In the meantime due to the continuous demand for Amenra’s groundbreaking out-of-print Mass IIII-record, Hypertension will be reissuing this classic and essential masterpiece on 500 copies, a double LP including a CD for all your iPortable equipments. Mailorder customers get one out of 100 copies on grey splattered vinyl!! The other 400 will be released on white (200) and grey (200) vinyl.
In related news for all you faithful to the Church of Ra: Amenra’s Mass V will be released by Neurot this November. Amenra is currently preparing for their already sold-out releaseshow at the infamous AB (Brussels). We had a sneak preview on Ra’s plans for the evening and we can assure you: this will be stuff legends are made of! Other bands playing are The Black Heart Rebellion and Oathbreaker and Scott Kelly (Neurosis) will be ending this evening in style with an after-show at the AB Box. But before that they will play a select amount of shows throughout Europe, check www.churchofra.com for more info.
Finally some news about your favourite alternative rock icons, straight outta Ghent, DRUMS ARE FOR PARADES. The Master-LP most of you are still giving a spin on a daily basis is close to being sold-out. So for those not yet in the know: what the fuck are you waiting for?! DAFP will play a bunch of shows this autumn and winter so hurry over to facebook.com/drumsareforparades for all the latest on their whereabouts.
That’s all for now folks, none more grim, the Hype.
