The first two days have already been blogged and photogged. Check it out at barelyilluminating.tumblr.com.
To celebrate the re-issue and the tour we have assembled a series of vignettes filmed in glorious hi-8 video during the making of Twice Removed. You will be able to join us as we peek behind the scenes and marvel at how quickly time has passed. Expect new videos twice weekly, for the next 11 weeks.
As well, you can expect regular updates from the road from our intrepid lamper / bloggist Kevin Hilliard. His daily digest "Barely Illuminating" begins later today!

We are working on more Twice Removed 2012 dates in the Eastern USA and Canada through October and November, with more to announce soon!
Here's what Jay had to say about this one:
"Perhaps by now you know of my love for the 1970's-1980's 'bootleg' LP aesthetic. Due to the enthusiastic demand for the Is That All I Get? live in Winnipeg 1993 vinyl LP we released last autumn, I've been allowed to indulge once again in creating another limited edition artifact.Unlike the last bootleg LP though, this concert was actually recorded live directly from the soundboard! Captured on our first tour of duty of Australia, it was a pretty heavy guitar onslaught that treated the patrons of Goldman's in Sydney that night of Oct. 23 1999. One listen to Andrew and Patrick's twin guitar war during Sensory Deprivation and you'll know what I'm talking about, mate.
As before, this LP comes packaged in a heavy-stock white jacket with a hand-numbered, risographed wrap around outer sleeve, photocopied interview insert and, this time, pressed onto translucent Pacific Ocean blue vinyl. We were down under promoting our 5th LP, Between The Bridges, and it was for this album that we made a concerted effort to expand our international horizons by beginning our touring outside of Canada. First was the United States and then off to Australia before continuing to Japan later in the year. I like to think we were pretty warmed up by this point, despite the 15 hour flight.
As an added bonus with the vinyl purchase, you will also be sent a high quality digital download of the LP, as well as 4 bonus tracks (People Of The Sky, Iggy and Angus, The NS and Sinking Ships) that didn't make the vinyl cut."
Dig if you will,
