When we started discussing artwork concepts for the cover of the new album, Andrew came up with the idea of making some original physical art that could become the cover itself, as opposed to building the graphics with photos in photoshop. Andrew began by taking photocopied text and images of us and applying them to actual heavy matte stock, 'tip-on' vintage style LP jackets via a transfer process involving lighter fluid and some elbow grease, creating a number of one-of-a-kind black & white collages on each cover. Have a look at the photos to see the man himself hard at work.
Because it looked like so much fun, the rest of us got artsy and jumped in on the action with some tutelage from Prof. Scott. Before we knew it, we had amassed over 50 cover options. After careful deliberation and debate, we sifted through the many works that Andrew created and we chose the cover that we liked best. That's the one that you may have seen images of on the internet already with added yellow and purple colouring.
So what do we do with all the rest of these limited edition one-of-a-kind black & white LP covers that we handmade ourselves? Well, they'll be available via our online store with added limited edition prints and canvas LP bags and more. Deluxe! Rare! More news to follow.
