SECRETS OF THE SKY Tour Diary / Further Details On Split LP
Having just completed a co-headlining tour of the lower southwestern realms of America together, Oakland’s SECRETS OF THE SKY and Tucson’s Godhunter have released a post-tour account of their journey together, documenting some of the pros, cons, and random insanity two independent acts sometimes encounter on such a venture, via tour sponsor, American Aftermath.

On the recent Southwest US trek, SECRETS OF THE SKY and Godhunter were mongering the limited-to-100 copies, tour-only, cassette-edition of a new split release between both acts. On this combined effort, entitled ‘Ghosts’, both bands supply brand new material, showcasing even further experimentation into each of their respective crafts, with forty minutes of material, including a crushing new opus from each band, as well as a haunting, thematic accompaniment bearing the ‘Ghosts’ theme. Through a joint effort between Godhunter’s Battleground Records and the Earsplit Compound’s label division, The Compound, ‘Ghosts’ will see a more substantial release on September 9th through a deluxe LP version. In construction now is a 180-gram black/white vinyl swirl vinyl edition — limited to three-hundred copies, each including a digital download coupon — in addition to digital release via both bands.
