Newly Remixed Edition of 2001 Debut with Rejuvenated Album Artwork / Also Available as 4LP Box Set with Classic 04/15/2001 Peel Session & 1997 Demo EP
Fresh from the triumph of Lift To Experience's reunion at the Royal Festival Hall in London in 2016, as part of Guy Garvey's Meltdown festival, the band have announced the much-anticipated definitive reissue of their seminal double concept album, The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, fifteen years after its original release. Full circle, as God intended.
Lift To Experience formed in Denton, TX at the end of the last millennium by Josh T. Pearson, Andy Reginald Young and Josh "Bear" Browning. Their rise was fast and their reign was short. Following the release of their long-form masterpiece, the band imploded at the peak of their career due to a series of cruel tragedies. In this short time, however, Lift To Experience achieved high critical acclaim and were so beloved by John Peel that he invited them to record three Peel sessions in just five months, and the band were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time.
Josh T. Pearson explains, "We went back to the studio, neck deep in the heart of Texas, where we recorded The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads - remixing the album the way it should have be mixed originally. It's good to have our balls back after years spent being castrated."
The newly remixed edition of The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads by Matt Pence (Centro-Matic) will be released by Mute with rejuvenated album artwork, an homage to the Texas-based graphics design studio Pen & Pixel (famed for their 90's Southern gangsta rap album covers), on colored double vinyl and as a deluxe 4LP box set, which will also feature Lift To Experience's classic 04/15/2001 Peel session as well as their demo EP from 1997.
