We’re thrilled to announce that the “Special Edition” of our debut EP, Land Speed Record, is now available on iTunes and other online music stores and streaming services (full confirmed list below). This set features five high-energy Empire State Express originals, newly mixed and remastered by our friend and engineer extraordinaire, Nick Messitte.
The Dropcard edition of this release, available only at ESE shows and by special request, also features two exclusive bonus tracks, including the showstopper that gave our band its name, recorded live for radio broadcast in late 2010. You’ll also get a handsome, limited edition card designed by uneekgrafix, which is good for everything from specials at live shows to supercharging with your mutant powers and hurling at 10-storey-tall evil robots in your quest to save the universe.
Now, you may be asking, “why a special edition?” For one thing, we were never completely satisfied with the mastering and some of the mixes on the first CD release of LSR back in 2010. However, being DIY outfit with only a few months and even fewer dollars under our belts, we couldn’t could do much about that problem at the time. Even so, our first pressing sold out due to our fans’ tremendous support. As a way of saying thank you, we’ve put our profits back into polishing up the original Land Speed Records tracks. We hope you enjoy our debut EP the way it was meant to sound.
