For his second Record Store Day offering, the Making Vinyl Award nominated Ensign Broderick announces a double album creation BloodMyth/BloodCrush.
This Record Store Day 2019 edition, a deluxe double vinyl package, includes the artist’s first newly recorded albums, BloodCrush and BloodMyth. BloodCrush, originally released in 2018, is a meditation on frailty and fallibility, a collection of songs that edge ever closer to the brink. BloodMyth, the companion album, is a song cycle based in part on the seven deadly sins, and pushes things over the edge; concepts of personal and political extremism come to swirling, chaotic conclusions.
Each Record Store Day double package comes complete with original cover art by painter Kris Knight and one of five Kris Knight prints, artful booklets that feature polaroid photographs by German photographer Stefanie Schneider and handwritten lyrics by Ensign Broderick, with blood red splatter pattern 180 gram vinyl within (one print per package: either of two different Kris Knight prints: or one of three Stefanie Schneider prints of a Polaroid). This art-packed exclusive offers vinyl collectors a first listen of BloodMyth, the shattered looking glass companion to BloodCrush, ahead of its worldwide digital release.
