Pelican now has a special pre-order bundle available for the release of the vinyl version of March Into The Sea. More details regarding the release can be found below.
March Into The Sea Vinyl"This was basically a labor of true love. March Into the Sea is one of our favorites songs. This 12 version was mastered to perfection by John Golden, so its different than the CD in that aspect. Everything was done to up the value of the analog version, both in audio and aesthetic. The covers were hand screened, and the different colors chosen represent the palette of color well. They sound great and look great, esp. the vellum version."
