One time only “Gas Jackets” online now, and other tidbits.

coa-gj-001-full.jpg
Hey Folks, just a few updates as the busy holiday season has snuck up on us.

First off, we have restocked our online store, and added a one time run, limited edition of Gas Jackets with the iconic looking salt art on them. There are not many of these made, and they are not being made again, so I would grab one quick. They are priced low, and if you remember how bands used to print their art on used gas jackets, then you’ll know how rad these things are. Ofcourse no one in the band can wear one, as they would be nicknamed “Captain Coalesce” as Sean was back when. You can buy a jacket by clicking HERE.

Relapse Records is also Reissuing the 0:12 Revolution in Just Listening record with new Mastering, and all new packaging. We are in love with Dan Henks original painting (plus the band just plain loves that guy personally), and it is included in the new packaging, but to breathe new life into this out of print LP, Band friends, the Clarks (from Invisible Creature and Demon Hunter), are doing a complete rework of the concept from the ground up. When they asked Sean what he wanted to see, the answer was “Do your thing, I have no input”. So you know this thing is going to rule if Sean trusts them enough to represent the band with no interference. They recently did the new Foo Fighters artwork, so I know you’ve seen their work. Expect the repress early next year, as all the deadlines are mid December to get it in to the label.

If you haven’t gotten a Salt and Passage 7″ yet, now is the time to do so, it’s almost out of press, and when they are gone, that’s it. It was a low pressing of 7″‘s to begin with, so don’t say we didn’t warn you. After that, our records seem to find a home on ebay for stupid amounts. Don’t be that guy.

The DVD red version is almost gone too, so if you want to kill someone with 10+ hours of coalesce playing live, get on it, because the future of this long awaited release is up in the air as well.

And lastly, Sean’s Dad fell victim to a heart attack. He lived but needs open heart surgery. Sean is taking him to Columbia, Mo. this month, and seriously asks anyone with a moment to keep Bob Ingram in their prayers for a successfull surgery.

Thats all for now, but to answer any chatter on the internets, yes the band is currently still writing for the new Full Length due in late 08/ early 09. Jes has been flying in to Kansas City to continue the writing process, and it’s going well. The band could not be happier with what’s happening with the material, and the excitement level from all members has been set to 11 the entire time. So if you are a fan, and are worried that they are going to “break up” or loose interest, take note that it has not been the case.

Second Nature has launched the preorder for the new Coalesce 7″ “Salt and Passage”. There have been a lot of emails about how to get the limited vinyl, and what color vinyl, and all that…well, this is the best way to get ahold of them, and you can choose which color, weight, and packaging you want. There is also a limited edition t-shirt that is bundled with the package. We will only be making the shirts for the people who order, then it will be discontinued.

Click image to take you to the preorder now.

UPDATE 8/6/07: THE PREORDER HAS SOLD OUT AFTER A FEW DAYS. WE WILL HAVE SOME COPIES OF THIS RECORD ON THE ROAD, BUT NOT A WHOLE LOT OF COPIES. WE SUGGEST IF YOU LIVE ON THE WEST COAST, TO HAVE A FRIEND BUY YOU A COPY AND MAIL IT, OR WAIT FOR THE SECOND PRESSING. THANKS SO MUCH, WE ARE SUPRISED BY THE AMOUNT OF ENTHUSIASM THE PREORDER WAS MET WITH!

Zeplin repress art revealed, and date pushed back a tad.

zeplin repress cover artWe just got word that the Zeplin “there is nothing new under the sun +” repress of the record is going to be pushed back to August 21. Apparently, Aaron Turner and company have given this thing a ridiculous packaging treatment. I’ve seen the pdf’s, but I still don’t understand how the hell this thing is being put together, I can just tell it looks totally rad.  I got confirmation also that vinyl is indeed going to happen for this release, but most likely a few months down the road.  The jpeg up there in the left is indeed the album cover art. Please note that we will have full stock of these things on the road with us, so if you can’t wait till the street date, come to the show! Tracklist follows…

“There is Nothing New Under the Sun” Tracklist:
1. Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin)
2. Heartbreaker (Led Zeppelin)
3. Black Dog (Led Zeppelin)
4. Out on the Tiles (Led Zeppelin)
5. Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin)
6. That’s the Way (Led Zeppelin)
7. Thank You (Led Zeppelin)
8. I’m Giving Up On This One (The Get Up Kids)
9. Vehicle (Boy Sets Fire)
10. In The Wilderness (Boy Sets Fire)
11. Bob Junior (Coalesce original)
12. Supernaut (Black Sabbath)
13. Cutting Away
14. That’s The Way Redux (Led Zeppelin)
15. Thank You Redux (Led Zeppelin)

7″, DVD box set, and Zeplin details.

It’s been a while since an update, but only because we have been super busy lining up some things, and drastically changing some things.  I recently got pneumonia, so my body has slowed down enough to go through all these updates and organize them for you guys.

saltpassage.jpgFirst up is the new 7″.  Our plans ended up changing every day as to what made the most sense for this release.  It is drastically different from what was originally reported, but the next paragraph tackles those things left out.  First off, it is no longer going to be a book/retrospect project.  It’s being treated as a new release all on it’s own merit, moving into the future as a band.  Instead of being several things we’ve always wanted to do crammed into one package, it’s being split up so each project makes sense.  So, the 7″ is a 7″.  It will come in a screen printed gatefold package (printed on black heavyweight card stock), and heavy weight vinyl grades, along with several unique colors of vinyl.  There will also be limited color combos of the printed cover.  The release date for stores is September 11, 2007.  It will not come on cd format, but will be released on itunes in october.  So 7″ vinyl, and digital only release.

coalescedvd.jpgSince we decided to go this route with the 7″ release, we were left over with this coalesce footage that’s I’ve had for years.  We thought about editing it together for a “dvd release” on a label, or even thought about canibalizing it and adding some footage here and there on new represses or cds that have been out of print. What ultimately made sense based on the visual and audio quality of the fooage, was to archive every show, and make a box set that includes every show we have available in it’s entirety.  This is what we did.  This box set is going to be a self release and available only at live shows and on our online store.  We have finished all of the footage gathering, the cleaning, the digitizing, etc, so it will to be released in late August/ early September.  Seth at floatingboymedia.com has done a great job organizing all 15 or so shows into 4 discs, complete with a menu for each show, and chapter points for each song on each show.  The title of this release is “No Business in this Business”.  Some of you will see the footage we have and say “hey, I have a show that’s not on this”.  We did not include any 2002 shows, but if you have any shows that are not on the box set, please send me a clean copy.  I would love to capture all shows ever on this, but since it’s not possible, I have set it up to be in volumes.  So this is volume 1, and if we get more footage to surface, then a volume 2 will happen.  If not, then only one volume.

There have been some questions about Coalesce merch.  Right now the store is where it’s going to be at for the next couple month.  We have retired logo tees and ribcage merch from live shows, but are letting them find a home on the merch store.  We have even been printing girls shirts for both.  We have 2 new Aaron Turner designs coming to the coalesce/hydrahead shop in september, and a couple of other new designs we have been working on.  If there is something any of you want to see in the store, as always, please let me know.  But keep in mind some art doesn’t exist anymore, or some shirts I was threatened with a beating for doing (skull skates parody).

The last item is the “There is nothing new under the sun +” cd/lp is still on course for an August release.  I have seen a mock of the cover Aaron Turner did, and I’m more than stoked!  Again, this reprint of the record contains the Zeplin disc, and all the scattered 7″ songs and covers we have done over the year.

So that is the latest updates on all the things we have planned for August, save for one other big one.  When that one gets settled we’ll post it asap.  Thanks for checking in!

Vinyl History finally complete!

Hey, thanks to everyone who emailed in with the vinyl history for the Converge/Coalesce info. Especially Caroline and Tami! I got an email from Jake Bannon (Converge), Dan Askew (Second Nature), some guy at Very Distro, and a few others I thought would know the answer, but ultimately no one could remember. Even I didn’t know, and I used to have all that stuff memorized. I did get an email from John Dudeck at Edison, and he had an idea of what it was, but when the 2 girls emailed, it all came together. Thanks so much!

Have you seen this Record?

As you can probably tell, I’ve been busy trying to get the data filled out for the “finally” Coalesce website. We changed the messageboard to look like the site, put in a history section, some free mp3s (like they aren’t all free on the interwebs today), and a Color Vinyl History page.

This is where we need some serious help. There is one record that we can’t seem to find any info on. It’s the “Among the dead we pray for light” split 7″ with Converge. There is no info on this record anywhere on the web, and the guy who put it out is MIA.

This is what I can remember about it. There were something like 10 colors of vinyl, and something like 100 of each color. Then it sold out in like a day, so they repressed it once, but threw in 100 on black vinyl. If anyone knows who used to run “life records”, or if anyone is friends with Converge, try to get me that info. Don’t bother trying Very Distro, they don’t seem to remember.

But please, if anyone has detail color vinyl pressing on this (there are 2 pressings), please forward it to me or post it on the comments to this post.

thanks-Sean
