Blind Idiot God Releasing Before Ever After on Vinyl April 8

blind idiot god

New York experimentalists Blind Idiot God first offered up their return after 23 years, Before Ever After (review here), just over a hear ago. A spacious, could-go-anywhere-and-actually-might exploration too busy being creative to be pretentious, the album will see release on double-vinyl through Indivisible Music on April 8. Its arrival coincides smoothly with the trio heading to Europe to play Roadburn 2016 and more — a trip on which they’ll also be bringing some exclusive-type merch. Presumably in tiny, adorable European sizes.

The PR wire has details on all of the above and more:

BLIND IDIOT GOD WORLDWIDE ALBUM RELEASE APRIL 8, 2016

Blind Idiot God have a new worldwide release date of April 8th for their gatefold double-vinyl LP with album artwork by Seldon Hunt (Neurosis, Earth, Melvins, Sunn). Also available on CD and as digital download. Album title is Before Ever After and was previously only available directly from Indivisible Music (and select importers). Album is now on sale worldwide on iTunes (pre-sales). The band’s new webstore is live now at indivisiblemusic.aisamerch.com.

Raise The Titanic Tour launches on April 13th with stops in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Norway. New merchandise featuring the Seldon Hunt “Raise the Titanic Tour” design will include t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, hoodies and stickers. Select designs available for purchase on tour only for now. The band explains “We decided to sell this particular t-shirt design, which dovetails with the European tour poster, exclusively on these tour dates so you won’t find it in the webstore.”

Other tour news includes the addition of Buried at Sea on the bill at Gleis 22 in Muenster, Germany and the super-saver ticket price (only five Euros) for the show April 23rd at Beatpol in Dresden, Germany. Tim Wyskida shares more tour news explaining that the “Roadburn performance will include a video created by Heath Bradley. He took Seldon’s European vinyl cover design and made sections of it move which will be a delight for Dutch stoners.”
