16/11/2012 : IAOS Year Ten 3LP | Year Ten Merch | Year Ten Live at The Forum 2CD
Our final days together aren't far away. As one might expect, there are some items to help you get through this and to commemorate these momentous occasions.
Ideas Above Our Station - Year Ten Triple LP
Back in 2002, we released our first album. Ten years later we've been humbled to find that many of you still love it. During that period we recorded a plethora of extra tracks, enough to make up another album. None of those songs have been readily available for years - but they are now.
With our adored friends at Banquet Records, we'll be releasing a limited edition, 3LP, extended, deluxe version of Ideas Above Our Station. The package includes the original album plus all of the B-sides from the Ideas Above Our Station era, Singles Club tracks from the same period, as well as Remmus and two previously unreleased demos recorded in 2001 before we signed to Sony - early versions of Silver and Oratorio. These 33 tracks come in what we think is a genuinely gorgeous package based on the original artwork and designed by Dave House.
The first press is limited to 250 and comes with a CD of all the bonus tracks.
As this is a limited edition, pre-ordering is strongly advised and you can do that now - click across to Banquet Records.
Year Ten Merchandise
As you might be aware, the end of this month sees us play four shows to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Ideas Above Our Station. If you're coming along, should you want to you'll be able to acquire one of these lovely commemorative items.
Both shirt designs have the tour dates on the back and there's also a hoodie available in the star design.
Year Ten Live at The Forum
For possibly the most commemorative of commemorative items, Abbey Road Live Here Now will be recording the full twenty two song Forum set on 24 November. The double CD, Year Ten Live at The Forum, will be available on the way out of the show (!) and you can also pre-order at the Coronet and Manchester shows or via the ARLHN website.
Most importantly of all in this message, we'd like to thank all of you who snapped up tickets for these shows at such a frantic pace and left us genuinely speechless. Ideas Above Our Station changed all of our lives and it's incredibly touching to know that it changed some of yours too.
If you didn't manage to get a ticket, keep an eye on the #IAOS10TIX hashtag on Twitter, which has been matching up ticket sellers and buyers. Also watch out for various things on our Facebook and Twitter, you might still be able to join us.
We're hoping to make these shows special for everyone, not least because we're incredibly grateful to you all for coming.
Thanks for being with us through all of this. Until next time, with love.
