epic45 - May Your Heart Be The Map (12" Vinyl) W&W035


Info

To mark it's 10th Anniversary, a subtly remixed and remastered re-release of epic45’s 'may your heart be the map' will be available for the first time on vinyl 23rd June 2017. Pre-orders are now being taken.

‘may your heart be the map’ stands out as a marked departure from a more edgy-experimental-ambient sound, as witnessed on ‘Drakelow’ (2006) and ‘England Fallen Over’ (2005), and sees epic45 concentrate on something more bucolic and innocent, as described by Jude Rogers in 2007 for Word Magazine “Their ghostly, fingerpicked guitars, sampled found sounds, memories of shoegazery and dusty electronica conjured up old British films – and gave the Black Country it's very own Boards of Canada”.

This anniversary reissue is presented as a deluxe heavy-weight gate-fold edition, with printed inner sleeves featuring new artwork and mini-essays by long-time supporters; journalist Rob Fitzpatrick (formerly Word Magazine) and cult American Novelist Scott Heim (We Disappear, In Awe and Mysterious Skin, the latter being adapted to screen by Gregg Araki), whom both share personal insights for their love of 'may your heart be the map'.

epic45 will also be playing live at London's Union Chapel on 10th June.
