Ashes in the brittle air (30th anniversary expanded edition) – Kickstarter

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 30 years since I released the Ashes in the brittle air album; I was 23 at the time. My Kickstarter to create the 2CD/LP expanded edition is now live, and receiving donations from fans like you! Every pledge helps us get closer to creating the deluxe edition. Ashes is the album that brought my band to a lot more listeners, especially via radio play on the goth rock (with ambient thrown in) track “Across a thousand blades.”

The 30th Aanniversary remastering of Ashes in the brittle air sounds amazing! The vocals are so much more present, the instruments are clear, yet the album retains that dreamy, romantic quality you remember from the 80s. Hey, don’t just read me talking about it… go get yourself a copy! It’s a free download at Bandcamp during the crowdfunding campaign! If you like what you hear, please go to the Kickstarter page and make a pledge. The download includes the pristine and powerful 2019 mix of “Across a thousand blades,” plus an 8-song Highlights of recent BlackTape releases. Every backer who pledges at Kickstarter gets a 21-track bonus download (as soon as my mastering guy finishes it). It includes five finally-mixed-to-perfection tracks that were cut from the 1989 release, as well as a number of demos and early mixes, including the evolution of β€œAcross a thousand blades.”
