NEON CHRIST DEBUT A BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR THEIR SELF-TITLED TRACK

NEON CHRIST DEBUT A BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR THEIR SELF-TITLED TRACK
Salad Days

The song appears on ’1984′ out on Deluxe LP format for Record Store Day, a co-release on Southern Lord and DVL Recordings, also available in digital format.

Neon Christ, the cult hardcore luminaries featuring William DuVall (BL’AST!, Comes With The Fall, Alice In Chains), Jimmy Demer (Gardens of.., Accidents), Danny Lankford (Gardens of.., GoDevils, Accidents) and Randy DuTeau (Gardens of…) share the entertaining new video for ‘Neon Christ’ which features the band’s children, and gleefully conveys the appreciation of this music across generations. The band comments: “We all had a lot of fun making this video with the kids. They did a fantastic job. It was a wonderful full-circle moment. And much hilarity ensued on set.” On 12th June, Southern Lord and DVL Recordings co-release a deluxe edition of their 1984 sessions for Record Store Day. Digital format will also be available via Bandcamp only, and non-Record Store formats will follow at a later date via Southern Lord Europe.

To remaster the original tapes using an all-analog process, William DuVall made multiple trips to Nashville to one of the few remaining studios (Welcome To 1979) maintaining the vintage technology to play and process the audio – his account of this is documented below. Side one of ’1984′ features the original Neon Christ 7″ EP, and side two contains the four songs of the Labor Day session, all on heavyweight vinyl at 45 RPM for maximum fidelity. The package includes a full-color gatefold sleeve and a 12-page oral history booklet featuring dozens of never-before-seen photographs.
