AFTER DARK REMASTERED





Over 5 years ago we released a slow-burning label sampler at midnight on my birthday. The original pressing was a demo CDR that Ida No colored with markers & glued cutouts of my hand spraypainting our names on the world. It was supposed to be a limited edition of 237 copies meant for the merch tables of Texas & California. It exploded overnight. 77 minutes of analog electronic music mutating through Italo Disco, Krautrock, Electro, Giallo Cinema, & Pop. By now, After Dark seems like it's in its thousandth pressing...(we lost track a long time ago). And as we prepare for the release of After Dark 2, we wanted to share with you where it all began. The last 5 years seem like a beautiful blurry dream. Since the October 15th release date was announced back in July, everyone has grown increasingly anxious for the hard copy. At that time, we didn't know Karl Lagerfeld was going to commission Chromatics to choreograph 27 minutes of music for the Chanel runway. We also couldn't have known that Symmetry was going to be asked to score a top-secret motion picture for 2013. There is so much music we can't wait for you to hear. For the diehard fans, we're going to start leaking tracks next week. After slowly chiseling away at it since the spring of 2008, After Dark 2 is finally right around the corner. Thanks to everyone for being so enthusiastic & patient. I promise it's worth the wait. In the meantime, download the fully remastered version of the first After Dark from my soundcloud. I blended it together at 5 am this morning. Enjoy!

Thanks for this Johnny. Hopefully this will tide me over until next week. Sounds like you guys have been really busy so I'm guessing After Dark 2 won't be quite be ready next week, but I can't wait to hear the first leaked track. If it's even half as good as Kill For Love then it'll be a beautiful song

XOXO
