Bombed Out and artist news

Reissue of Dugong's fantastic second album to mark it's 10th anniversary and Bombed Out's 15th anniversary
While Dugong's debut album, The Eastmoor Rules, was a great melodic punk record, it only hinted at what the band would go on to produce in Hat Danko - a record that delivered on all fronts as the influences that crept into the bands sound prior to this were here fully explored. To put it bluntly, each and every song on this record is a classic and together they made for one of the most ambitious, varied (yet cohesive) and, above all else, strongest, releases we've ever put out.
It was with this in mind that we decided to celebrate both the 10th anniversary of Hat Danko and the 15th anniversary of Bombed Out with a limited edition LP reissue. The reissue will be released on 180g (that's the heavy stuff) white vinyl, will be wrapped in a lovely gate-fold sleeve and is limited to 250 hand-numbered copies.
The new artwork is once again the work of Paul Heys who wanted to update and move on a little from what he'd done with the CD artwork 10 years earlier. Hopefully you approve!
The Hat Danko LP is up for pre-order now and will ship on or before the 14th October or - if you're coming to the Bombed Out 15th Anniversary gig - you can pick a copy up in person on October 5th when the band will be playing this one off event. We can't wait!
