Hersh, drummer Dave Narcizo, and bassist Bernard Georges are back with their first album in a decade. It isn’t your standard LP release, though. Purgatory/Paradise is an art book that comes packed with a multimedia CD. The book is in stores October 28, with the full release out November 11 via It Books (U.S.) and Friday Project (UK).
The book, designed by Narcizo, features lyrics, photos, and writing by Kristin Hersh. The CD comes with 32 tracks, and the book comes with downloadable content, including commentary and instrumentals.
It’ll also be released as an interactive e-book/music app.
