OD 3.0 is now shipping.
On July 6th 2004, Gatsbys American Dream released an EP on LLR Recordings that would re-define their band once again. Produced by Casey Bates, who would go on to produce the band’s next two albums, the EP served as a mission statement for the group. In the Land of Lost Monsters became an essential bridge of experimentation between Ribbons & Sugar to Volcano. A little more than 10 years later, the EP is coming to vinyl for the first time.
There are 3 variants, here’s the pressing information:
- 200 Black with a hand-numbered OBI Strip
- 350 Black
- 550 Clear / Glow in the Dark Split
The EP has been remastered for vinyl, and cut at 45 RPM. Each record is 180 gram vinyl, hand-numbered with all-new album art (original artwork unfortunately did not reproduce for the LP format). The liner notes feature an all-new interview with Nic Newsham and Bobby Darling conducted by Sarah Shay. Each record also comes with a free download code.Like the previous releases, 100% profits (or approximately 52% of the sales price) for this release will be donated to Water.Org. Additionally, the profits for the previous releases have been donated to Water.Org. Together, we’ve raised $3415 from the sales of the two previous releases so far! According to Water.Org, we’ve created permanent sources of clean water for 137 people. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed!
