With this release, Pain of Salvation re-visit their ground-breaking album by teaming up with old companion and mixing engineer Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Haken, etc.) for a new sonic take on the original recordings as well as the intense full-album live performance from ProgPower USA Festival from 2014.
Both these Remedy Lane recordings will be made available either together as 2CD Digipak format dubbed Remedy Lane Re:visited (Re:mixed & Re:lived) with a total playing time of 142 minutes or individually as Gatefold 2LP (plus its corresponding album as bonus CD) or Digital Download versions, respectively called Remedy Lane Re:mixed (Playing time: 68 min.) and Remedy Lane Re:lived (Playing time: 74 min). The releases will come with revised artwork, expanded booklet design and extensive liner-notes by Daniel Gildenlöw.
Pain of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlöw commented as follows about the re-mix project: "Jens Bogren, aka Fascination Street Studios, approached us a few years after the release of "Remedy Lane", saying he was a fan of the band and kindly offered his services. He was later involved in "BE" and "Scarsick", but always in the periphery, since we were taking new directions in our sound and production by then. His true strengths lay in that impressive wall-of-sound type production that we had been aiming for with "The Perfect Element" and "Remedy Lane", and I always wondered how those albums would have sounded in the care of his skillful hands. Maybe it was time to find out?"
More details about pre-order start for this release (and its various vinyl options) will be available in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, there's an update about Pain of Salvation's new studio album. The band is working together with producer Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, etc.) at Dug-Out Productions in Sweden.
The album will be entitled In The Passing Light Of Day and is expected to be released later in the year also InsideOut Music.
Daniel Gildenlöw comments on the new album: "For those who don't already know, we are currently deep into recording the new Pain of Salvation album "In the Passing Light of Day" with brilliant producer Daniel Bergstrand. This cooperation feels like a match made in heaven (or rather some other cool place that I actually believe in), and he was as thrilled to be working with us as we with him. The album will see us go back to our heavy roots again, with a vengeance, and we all feel that we are writing a super strong new chapter in the history of the band. Just wait and you'll see. Damn, we just want everyone to hear this stuff already! :)"
