Thanks for everyone’s patience with the Peasant pre-orders. Lot’s going on over here, many things to juggle and only 2 hands. I’m going to keep this short and sweet so let’s get into it!
Before THOU released their 2014 Gambit Big Easy Award winning, Summit, they spent the spring of 2008 rushing to complete their second full-length, Peasant, in time for a month and a half trek across the United States. This record would be their last true album to abandon melody for the self indulgent, “Southern” styled riffing that had most of their early fans saying, “I thought you’d be bigger with more tattoos and beards.”
Originally released on vinyl by Level Plane Records, this edition has been remastered by Adam Tucker (Signature Tone Recording) and housed in a tip-on style gatefold jacket with 180gram black vinyl and a 20 page booklet. This double LP also offers the complete version, including the CD-only tracks from the To Carry a Stone EP (released in 2008 by Noxious Noize) as well as bonus tracks from the Malfeasance/Retribution EP (released in 2008 on Feast of Tentacles and Rimbaud) and an unreleased cover of “Aneurysm.”
There are a limited number of copies that include a 9×3 screen printed cloth patch. These are only available through Robotic Empire and the band on tour. Thou will have their copies of Peasant starting on July 16th.
In addition to the re-issue we’ve printed up some fancy new T-shirts just for the Peasant release. I have to say, I’ve been waiting a long time to print this shirt, one of my favorite images and I hope you guys like it too. Printed on Bella Canvas shirts, made in the USA, there are sizes from Youth Large to Extra Large.
I’m expecting to have the Peasant albums in hand around the second week of July. Once those arrive I’ll be packing and shipping ASAP. Official release date is July 28th.
