New September 2012 (The Sleep of Reason)

Not much Yellow6 news for now… but some collaboration news.

Currently being mastered by Fraser McGowan (Caught In The Wake Forever) is a collaboration between David Newlyn and Yellow6 which will be released this autumn by Sound In Silence.  More on that soon…

But the big news is that The Sleep Of Reason is almost upon us.  The long awaited trilogy will be released by tonefloat as a 4LP set on 09 October 2012.  It is available to pre-order now at the Tonefloat store for 39.99 Euro

I may have a few copies but most will be reserved for the tour dates (below).  To ensure you get a copy, please pre-order from Tonefloat.

There are sample tracks to listen to on the Tonefloat Soundcloud page:

the official info and tour dates are below.

That’s all for now

Over the past few years, alongside their own solo projects, Dirk Serries and Jon Attwood [Yellow 6] have been slowly working on a trilogy of albums as The Sleep Of Reason. This trilogy combines their own individual takes on guitar drone and ambience into something with its own character and style. The resulting music sees their guitars blend into slowly shifting soundscapes that take you to a different place and time. Each album is a continuation of the previous one but differs on an almost subliminal level, making the listener realise over time that the sleep of reason is a slowly mutating, thematic and specific musical entity.

Limited to 200 copies only, the set not only includes the trilogy of lps, but also a one-sided live lp recorded during the tonefloat label night 2011, and a cd with a selection of tracks taken from the three studio albums.

The release date is October 9 - 2012, and it's available for pre-order now from the tonefloat
