Remember Coalesce? Of course you do. They’re fucking awesome. Well, according to a new online update, “there’s gas in the tank, and we are feeling inspired. Deal with it!”
Does this mean new material could be forthcoming from the Kansas City metalcore act? Let’s hope. They did not specify that new music would be imminent, but they’re definitely keeping busy with a bunch of reissues that will be coming out this year.
“The reprint of [1997‘s] Give Them Rope on CD and vinyl is moving forward under the Relapse banner and Ingram is hard at work getting all the pieces together,” says the band in a statement. “The original masters from 1996 were thought lost forever until he found them in a box with some Star Wars toys.”
The album will come with two discs: the remastered 1997 version and the 2002 reissue.
“Absolutely NO FUCKING SPECIAL FEATURES,” the band says. “Just both versions of the record so you can play the one that gives you the most street cred with your friends, and toss the other. We promise not to make a big hooplah about it; we just want that record to stay in print so that it doesn’t get lost on a real format forever.”
