V. Eternal Depression

 Preorder is now Live.

All the necessary parts and pieces have been assembled for the next Antithetic release.  This time we bring you a new 12" from the blackened crust masters Young and in the Way entitled "V. Eternal Depression."  This album is devastating.  The guitar tone is downright ruthless.  The vocals are scathing and brutal.  From the opening solemn piano, to the sound of a distant train that brings the album to a close, you will be absolutely pummeled by everything in between.  The band has pushed themselves harder than ever before, both as musicians and as song writers, and it is clearly evident here.  The music is both heavier and more experimental than any of their previous work.  "The Gathering", the nearly 12 minute B side track, is nothing like you've ever heard from this band.  Every member lends some additional percussion, and there are additional woodwind instruments and other sounds as well.  Again, this is nothing like you've ever heard from Young and in the Way before.

Some details on the pressing itself.  We're doing only 250 copies for this pressing, all on 200 gram vinyl.  The vinyl will be black with heavy white splatter and will be in a black poly-lined inner sleeve.  The packaging and artwork are beautiful.  It comes in an upgraded 350gsm heavy weight jacket with an embossed YAITW logo in the center.  Artwork assembled by the band's vocalist Kable.  Also features a two sided insert with additional art and lyrics.  All preorders will come with a screen printed logo patch as well.

The band will have these on their upcoming string of tour dates in late November.  If you aren't lucky enough to go to a show to see them, head over to the store and preorder a copy.  Preorders go live on Wednesday, October 12.  They will also be streaming the album in full on CVLT Nation that day.  I'll update this post with a link when its up.

Lastly, we are again doing a preorder contest/giveaway with this release.  For every item you purchase along with a copy of the V. 12", you'll get a chance to win the prize.  We'll be giving away a test press of the album, along with an original piece of art put together by the band.  I've been sworn to secrecy on the details of the art, but trust me, its going to be awesome, and fits well with the theme of the album.
