Available now exclusively on vinyl, with a digital release coming in mid 2021, Miami Horror will release a special 10th anniversary edition of their seminal debut, the ARIA-nominated album Illumination.
Illumination 10th Anniversary Edition includes for the first time on vinyl twelve remixes, four B-sides (several never before heard demos) and a lush 25-minute psychedelic trip through the record entitled “Lucid Stream", in addition to updated mixes and masters of the original album,
“I started working on ‘Illumination’ at around 19-years-old and finished it by 24,” Plant explains. “You’re going through the crossover period of being a teenager to an adult. You still have a lot of life ahead of you, but you see the world innocently. The album was made during this crossover in my life where I got to see something come to fruition. I was in the imaginative period where you don’t have the burdens of adulthood yet. The music focuses on the wonder of the adventure itself. I had started to rekindle that feeling before the re-release. Everything was coming full circle, and it felt like the perfect moment to reintroduce this.”
After a whirlwind decade, they’ve certainly earned a moment to reflect…
During 2020, the idea to re-up illumination first germinated. It began with a large demand for the vinyl to be restocked, but it morphed into something bigger. “It was a chance for us to come back and celebrate the album in a way we didn’t get to at the time it was released because everything was so crazy,” he admits. “We never really got the chance to enjoy it. It’s a bit sentimental.
To celebrate the release, Miami Horror have made a very special 3-piece vinyl set inclusive of a 18x24" poster collage, highlighting artwork otherwise found exclusively within the original CD booklet for the original release of Illumination available for fans alongside special limited bundle pieces, including a re-print of their 2008 "vintage" logo on a black tee, their first heavy tote bag featuring the 2015 cursive logo printed on one side, and the same logo against the Illumination pink on an enamel pin manufactured by Pintrill.
