Published Jul 22, 2008As Constellation increasingly becomes a place not just for Montrealers, the label has announced its latest signee: Englands Tindersticks. On September 16, the one-time home of Godspeed You! Black Emperor will release Tindersticks seventh studio album, The Hungry Saw, in North America. And unlike the version that hit Europe earlier this year, the domestic release will come sporting a bunch of extra features.
The Hungry Saw CD will come packaged with some revised artwork, now printed on a cardstock gatefold sleeve, as well as a lyric booklet made with "fine artstock recycled paper. As for the LP, it will be pressed on hefty 180-gram virgin vinyl and include "multiple inserts. (Were guessing this means a bunch of fancy photos or art prints.)
In other Tindersticks news, the band have also recently made a short film titled Those Devil Hands with long-term collaborator Martin Wallace. As we previously reported, the documentary coincided with the European release of The Hungry Saw and delves into the inner working of the Nottingham noir-soul outfit primarily though interviews with front-man Stuart Staples. The film can be seen here.
