The album is a co release between Riot Season Records & WV Sorcerer Productions, with the latter mainly handling the release over in the Far East countries. Both editions are exactly the same, all pressed on transparent yellow vinyl with a download code.
I'm expecting stock to arrive at RSHQ early April so will aim to have it in shops/distros around April 23rd. Mail order copies will ship once they land here of course.
As this is a split label release, i'm getting less to sell for my own needs than i normally would. I've no idea what the interest will be in this one, but for me anyone with a love of Acid Mothers, Hibushibire, Les Rallizes Denudes etc should be all over it ... but i'm biased obviously. That said, that's exactly what got me into them when i stumbled across a link to this album last year.
Please note, this LP is a totally remastered version of the original limited CD/Cassette release from 2019.
In their own words ...
“Grateful End" is our album release in 2019 in the form of CD and cassette.
The title "Grateful End" clearly shows that this is our album with the theme of "End", such as "The Last Day of Humanity" and “Good Night, Good Death" are two of our songs with the theme of "End". However, this album also has another theme of " Live", in fact most of the songs on this album are based on our imagination of "Live". “End" is not the antonym of “Live”, "End" is just one of the stages of “Live”, in other words “End" is also our “Live”. “Grateful End" is a meaningful “End" for people struggling to “Live”. It is only when the “End" comes together with “Live” that we can find significance in it and pay attention to how people face the “End" of “Live”. The End of something enables us to understand “Live”.
Most of the tracks for Grateful End was recorded in 2018, before the epidemic, so our music doesn't reflect the situation of epidemic, but there was a time in 2020 when I thought about the reality that humanity was facing the last day of humanity. Thanks to the efforts of many people, humanity is not yet extinct, and thanks to the help of many people, we can now release this vinyl. We are very grateful to all of you.
But at the same time, the plight of the epidemic has re-emerged many humanity and morality issues that we have avoided looking at. Maybe we won't die out, but if we don't face our humanity squarely, we will lose our humanity in the future and will no longer be human. I don't know what our music can do about humanity, but it is true that music is one of the creations of humanity, and music cannot leave humanity. As music music lovers, our creations will always face humanity. I hope that in the future, after the epidemic is over, we can understand and inspire each other through our live and music.
See you soon.
