Cancer Conspiracy

Wow.Pretty excited to see this. Not sure if this is new to folks or simply to me but im psyched.Some of my favorite alone moments of living in Burlington was walking around town and zoning out to The Audio Medium and Their EP. Simply plopping a spot down at Battery Park and watching the water while taking it all in. Kinda miss it, will have to make a return to that in the warmer months.Here’s how the bands website broke their recent situation down:After spending over three years in legal limbo following the collapse of former label Big Wheel Recreation (Piebald, Jimmy Eat World, At The Drive In), the follow-up to The Cancer Conspiracy’s 2002 instrumental post-prog masterpiece The Audio Medium will finally see the light of day. The 8 song full-length, simply titled as the Greek astrological symbol “Omega,” is being co-released this Winter by the Boston collective Radar Recordings (Junius, Constants, Carrigan) and Wisconsin’s Gilead Media (The Appleseed Cast, mewithoutYou, Mouth of The Architect).Radar and Gilead have been working for the past several years to restore the recording’s legal rights to their proper owners: the band members themselves. With this accomplished, the album can now be made available to the public. Looks as though the actual album won’t be out in stores til the end of January. January 29th to be exact. But, if you’re dying to hear it and must have it asap, you can grab it now on CD and vinyl, direct from Radar Recordings and Gilead Media.You can rock the good old CD with lovely Jewel Case or you can go LARGE with your choice ofwhite vinyl (ltd 450)White Vinylorblack vinyl (ltd 200)Black Vinylapparently the good folks at Gilead Media! had a pretty sweet deluxe package including the CD/LP, a limited edition Cancer Conspiracy t-shirt, silk-screened patch, and buttons but they’ve since sold out.Going to have to go with the white vinyl/ straight old disc as long as those are still available. Exciting stuff.“Complex polyrhythmic psychedelica for the discriminating consumer. Instrumental, textural, and deep. Possible descendents of King Crimson and Brian Eno.” – Aaron Turner (ISIS, Hydra Head Records)

    actually it was the good folks at Gilead who screen printed the patches, spent long nights making the buttons by hand, and assembled all 650 lps! 😉
