Published Oct 06, 2014Canadian post-hardcore fans take note — beloved Haligonian quartet North of America have announced plans to reissue their seminal debut album Elements of an Incomplete Map.
The release first arrived as a CD-only release from Matlock Records in 1998. For the first time ever, it will now receive a vinyl release.
Remixed and remastered, the album will be pressed on 180-gram black vinyl. It's also got some updated artwork, as Halifax design concern Yo Rodeo have had their way with the album's cover. See the new art above.
In addition to the thick slab o' wax, North of America's album will come with some digital bonuses. This includes downloads of the Fork Fork Demo and The White Tape Demo. These feature previously unreleased songs and early versions of tracks that appeared on the album.
