Not long ago, we announced the newest album from The Appleseed Cast, Illumination Ritual. Considered by many to be a top contender as one of the best records to release in 2013, this album sold out of the entire 2000 copies that were originally pressed, including: 300 for the Graveface Record Club, 500 for the mailorder edition, and 1200 for the first retail pressing. These all sold rather quickly after announcement. Having not even been available for 2 months, this record is now available on it’s second retail pressing, Swamp Green & Aqua Blue A Side/B Side. And man, this one is beautifully done!!

If you’ve yet to check out this album, you’re certainly missing an integral part of what’s been released so far this year!!

Please note, the price of $15 includes shipping!!!

The Details


LP / CD / Cassette / Digital Download (out 4/23/13)

Change, as they say, is a good thing. And a lot has changed for Lawrence, Kansas, post-rock outfit The Appleseed Cast over the 14 years since their founding. With Illumination Ritual (out April 23rd), their first full-length since 2009’s Sagamartha & first output since 2011’s Middle States EP, they’ve embraced not only a new line-up, but also hopscotching time signatures and a tumultuous anthemic energy that rivals anything else in their consistently impressive catalog..... click here for more info on this release
