Million Dead Harmony No Harmony on Colored 2LP
Appearing on Vinyl for the First Time in Celebration of the Album's 10th Anniversary!
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
In celebration of the tenth anniversary of Million Dead’s second album Harmony No Harmony, it's getting a vinyl release for the first time in August 2015 through Xtra Mile Recordings. It will be a colored double vinyl LP pressing with gracefully redesigned artwork on a gatefold sleeve.
Million Dead’s second and final album shows off a more muscular, cathartic and less immediate rock beast than debut A Song To Ruin. With guitarist Tom Fowler replacing band co-founder Cameron Dean, the band traded clean, powerful lines for a maelstrom of thick riffs and coruscating noise. These cacophonic storms also hid some of the band’s most gentle moments, including the bare-bones, acoustic-led title track.
The centrepiece of the album, and first single "Living the Dream," is the perfect example of where the band were at, riding in on the holler of escalating white noise before fading into a gloriously clear waterfall of notes. It builds to a huge, melody-strewn chorus - “Every sound a memory but it’s all I’ll ever need / I always have a song inside my head” remains their catchiest and most poignant refrain.
It’s also home to their best video; an excellent, hilarious, and somehow moving tale of a washed-up glam-rock band finally wiping away their disguises and opening up to their audience. For fans of the band - old and new, perhaps led this way by vocalist Frank Turner and drummer Ben Dawson’s recent heavy band Möngöl Hörde, or bassist Julia Ruzicka, now in Future of the Left - the release of this album on vinyl has been a long time coming.
