Autolux to Release Deluxe Vinyl Edition Of Their Debut, ‘Future Perfect’
It's been 11 years since experimental rock band Autolux released their debut album, Future Perfect, in 2004, but the group confirmed today that the record will be reissued in the form of a deluxe edition vinyl release on a date yet to be determined.
A press release says the records will be pressed in the form of two 180-gram LPs "housed in a beautifully adorned gatefold album cover complete with a printed anti-static metallic sleeve which is wrapped in silver thermal protective bubble wrap."
The special re-release will be limited to 500 copies, and each one will contain a unique signed photo taken by the band while recording their upcoming album, which has yet to be announced. "The 500 instant photographs included in the Future Perfect packages are taken from a collection of 800 photos, ensuring fans receive only the best of the best," according to the press release. "Each photo will be stamped and numbered with no two deluxe packages including the same picture."
According to the Autolux website, "The photos were shot with a Mamiya RZ67 medium format camera, using a Polaroid back with Fuji (peel-apart) instant film. All of the photos were taken by [drummer Carla Azar], with the exception of the photos taken of her."
Beyond that, information in the release is sparse aside from photos of the gatefold cover and exclusive photographs, which can be seen above. While we wait to hear more, listen to "Turnstile Blues," the opening track from Future Perfect, below.
