as some of you might have overheard already, the new official ['ramp] album will be due for release on 21st December 2011. It was actually scheduled for 1st December, but unfortunately, there were some problems with the pressing plant -- and these had to be sorted out first.
"return" will be a return to where ['ramp] started in 1996/97, and I guess it has become the most "analogue-sounding" album since the release of "Nodular" and "frozen radios". There will be two sections on the album, called "astral disaster" and "return" respectively, each running beyond the 30 minutes mark. For some impressions please click here:http://soundcloud.com/doombient-music/ramp-return-excerpts
Like its predecessor "steel and steam" (which I´m slowly, but steadily running out of stock of), "return" will be available in a limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies. I do not intend to make it available as a digital download.
If interested, please feel free to send me an email (stephen at parsick dot com) and have me reserve a copy for you in advance. Please bear in mind that shipping rates will be the same for up to four albums, and I support group purchases (postage will be worked out individually then, depending on the weight of the shipment).
Thanks for your time,
