Hey y'all, got some hot digs in the can, man. We've been talking about this one for a while, but we put the brakes on it for a minute so people could focus on the new Junius full length Reports From The Threshold of Death, which will be hitting stores October 25th via the Prosthetic Records powerhouse killing machine. If you haven't preordered the album from them yet, we highly recommend not being st00pid and snagging limited colored vinyl NOW. We're also offering limited 180 gram black vinyl of the new full length, and you can add it to your preorder at checkout =) Buuuuuut the time has come to go ahead and get busy on our own Junius offering =) In cooperation with the heavy-hitting Translation Loss Records (they released the split on CD format, available HERE), we are proud to finally present the split 12" between two of the most exciting bands making music today in the good 'ole USA, the workhorse collective of Junius and the incomparable behemoth known as Rosetta =)
Preorder options and vinyl colors, as well as all the other pertinent info, is below, dudes & dudettes... so lets get biiiiiiizzy!!
Junius / Rosetta split 12"
A Day Dark With Night
"A special, limited edition split 12" between long time friends,
and new wave of American metal stalwarts, Junius and Rosetta.
This collaboration has been talked about between the bands for
years and is finally seeing the light of day on vinyl via The Mylene
Sheath. Junius contributes "A Day Dark With Night", clocking
in at around eight minutes, and Rosetta contributes "TMA-3",
which runs just under ten minutes. Junius is on tour right now with Enslaved and Alcest, while Rosetta will be perfroming in November at the inaugural Metal Suckfest in NYC alongside Municpal Waste, God Forbid, Today Is The Day, Cynic, Obscura and many more. Artwork direction, design and layout was handled by Mike Wohlberg at the Fat Kid! Illustation (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Pelican, Tombs). Strictly limited to 1000 copies, 200 of the copies have been pressed on white vinyl and will be available EXCLUSIVELY at record stores and will not be available through the record label or the bands. Both tracks appear on one side of the LP, with an intricate laser etching on the other side. The jackets are printed on 20pt SBS board and the package includes an insert with lyrics and liner notes from each band. Each copy of the record will also come with a download card that includes codes for cover songs by each band! Dig it? Yeah, you do."
