By Kscope on November 4, 2013 in Nosound, Vinyl


Deluxe edition of Nosound’s debut album for Kscope – available on double vinyl and as CD + DVD set, featuring high resolution stereo & 5.1 mixes, and reworked artwork

Nosound recently released Afterthoughts, their fourth studio album. The album was described by Prog magazine as ‘in a word, extraordinary’ and is proving to be the band’s most successful yet.

Now, as part of the Kscope 5th anniversary celebrations, Lightdark, their second album which was released on the label in 2008, is to be reissued as a deluxe 2 disc (CD+DVD) set and a double vinyl set.

Lightdark was the band’s breakthrough album. Featuring guest vocal’s from No-man’s Tim Bowness, it’s success and helped establish the band as a firm fixture within the Kscope label. Recorded in Italy, England and the US throughout 2006 and 2007, the album develops further the promise of debut album Sol29 and exhibits a stronger group identity which reveals a greater contrast between atmospheric detail and the walls of sound created by the band on stage. Highlights include the 15 minute epic ‘From Silence to Noise’, the ethereal ‘The Misplay’ (with cellist Marianne DeChastelaine), and the epic piano/mellotron driven ballad ‘Someone Starts To Fade Away’.

The album has been re-mastered for the release and the CD+ DVD set contains high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround mixes, plus video extras. The digibook packaging features reworked artwork, new previously unseen photos and new liner notes from Bowness and the album’s other guest, the cellist Marianne DeChastelaine.

The double LP edition of the album is presented on 180gram heavyweight white vinyl with a gatefold sleeve, and features bonus track ‘Clouds’ which is only available on the DVD-AV 5.1 surround mix. Orders placed through the Kscope store will also come with a signed A4 litho printon high quality matt paper.

The album will be available on Double White LP, as a CD & DVD-A Digibook Edition, and as a bundle of both editions, and is available to pre-order now from the Kscope store.

A new website is also online at www.lightdark.com featuring info and three free downloads including high resolution and surround sound versions.
