MY DYING BRIDE ANNOUNCE 2Oth ANNIVERSARY ALBUM 29th August 2010
2010 marks the 20th anniversary of My Dying Bride and to commemorate two decades of doom and gloom, the band embarked upon a project to re-work familiar melodies and themes from My Dying Bride's extensive catalogue which will include new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe.
These arrangements will be released as 'Evinta' this Autumn on Peaceville Records.
'Evinta' is a project that has beem almost fifteen years in the making, an idea that has sat smouldering and never really had a reason to burn alive until now," explains guitarist, Andrew Craighan.
"Nine albums worth of darkness recreated anew to mark 20 years of MDB. Music arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past. Finally the 20th anniversary allows us to release this music in a form it has been desperately, woefully waiting for. Enjoy the darkness."
'Evinta' will be available as both a two-disc and special three-disc set. The three-disc set will also be accompanied by a special limited 72 page hardback book, featuring rare images and photographs from the band's personal archive from over the years.
To coincide with this 20 year celebration, My Dying Bride will also re-release a vinyl version of 'Turn Loose the Swans' which will be limited to 2000 numbered copies and features the original vinyl cover artwork design and gatefold sleeve.
