about

Originally released in 2013, ‘Purgatory/Paradise’ gets reissued for the first time on double vinyl. Emerging ten years from a hiatus, it’s a formidable 32 track opus of tangible bliss from the alt-rock heroes.

Devised as a book with essays by Kristin Hersh with art by drummer Dave Narcizo, it’s a fractured album about loss, most tracks are short, broken, some are reprises. It includes ‘Milan’ about a neighbourhood in New Orleans where Hersh’s house was destroyed by hurricane Katrina, ‘Static’ that deals with a close loss of a close friend and ‘Terra Nova’ an ode to the band’s first break up.
