Reissued and remastered for the first time on vinyl with Digital Download Card
This April 15th sees the first-time ever vinyl release of Shihad’s self-titled third album in a deluxe 2LP set with an
additional 10-inch of the 1998BLUE LIGHT DISCO EP. This attractive package is vinyl heaven for Shihad fans and vinyl
Shihad’s self-titled breakthrough album, often known as “The Fish Album”, debuts on vinyl as a 2LP set – with the bonus
BLUE LIGHT DISCO10-inch vinyl EP and also a Digital Download Card.
It is nearly 20 years since the album was released in October 1996. The album was a breakthrough release for the band
with ‘Home Again’ becoming a radio hit, achieving airplay on both sides of the Tasman. This iconic song remains the
anchor song in their ever-popular live sets.
The bonus 10-inch disc BLUE LIGHT DISCO was ground breaking in that the band achieved sonic success that pointed to the
future. They worked with Australian producer, Magoo to realise the band’s production goals.
The third album is longer than their earlier vinyl reissues CHURN and KILLJOY, so it has been spread across two discs as
to not diminish volume and audio quality. The presentation of the tracks over two vinyl discs allows the recordings to
achieve maximum audio quality and the discs are able to track at 45rpm. The original recordings have been re-mastered by
Tony ‘Jack the Bear’ Mantz, who has done all the previous Shihad vinyl reissues.
The two releases, Shihad’s self-titled album and the BLUE LIGHT DISCO EP are packaged independently but are being sold
in one set including a download card. They will be available digitally, but sold as two separate downloads.
