The Constantines Shine A Light on LP + 7" + Download 

The first pressing of the The Constantines’ self-titled (and Juno Award-nominated) debut (released on Three Gut Records in 2001, and re-released outside of Canada on Sub Pop in 2004) was fittingly packaged so that, upon opening the red cardstock booklet, you’d find a single strike-anywhere match. In an effort to not ruin the beauty and poignancy of a thing through over-explanation, suffice it to say that if your relationship with rock and roll is not fundamentally a quest for fire (elemental, transformative, consuming), you’ve missed the point. 

This from Magnet magazine: “They’re young offenders with sharpened teeth who make grinding, literate punk with the elasti-to-explosive guitars heard on Fugazi’s “Smallpox Champion,” the stark lyrical economy of a Vonnegut-penned newspaper obituary...” And: “The Constantines are old souls in young bodies - guys in their early 20s who sound like Joe Strummer backed by Fugazi – making music that wakes the sleeping and the dead.” 

2002's brilliant Shine a Light was The Constantines’ second full-length and their first for Sub Pop. This 11th-anniversary gatefold vinyl reissue includes a bonus 7” featuring tracks from the Nighttime and Young Lions CD singles and an accompanying MP3 download coupon.

"What it all comes down to is this: There is too much love and too much life in this music for it to only exist in the past. We’re happy to announce that The Constantines – Will Kidman, Steve Lambke, Doug MacGregor, Bry Webb and Dallas Wehrle – will be playing some shows this summer, leading up to the 11th Anniversary Reissue of Shine A Light." - Bry Webb
