To mark the 25th anniversary of BOYSETSFIRE’s explosive debut This Crying, This Screaming, My Voice Is Being Born, Dark Operative is proud to reissue the album on vinyl and digital formats worldwide. Known for powerful songs that still appear in the band’s live sets to this day (particularly “Vehicle” and “Resection”), this release also stands as a monument to the DIY ethic and spirit of enduring friendship itself, as the band and Dark Operative owner/operator Brent Eyestone have worked together on this release via handshake since its inception (initially via Eyestone’s old label, Magic Bullet Records). Packaged in a chipboard-stock LP cover evocative of the exact aesthetic of the mid- ’90s era from whence this record was initially made, the original silkscreen design has been faithfully replicated with a package rounded out with complete lyrics and credits included.

The second installment focuses heavily on the self-titled era, giving all a previously-unseen and unheard glimpse behind the curtain at some of the early stages and ideas for songs that ultimately became the band’s most successful album to date.

Pulling from a dense archive comprised of 15 years worth of demos, unreleased tracks, variations on material that later evolved into something else, unused soundtrack cues, and everything in between, This Will Destroy YOU and Dark Operative are proud to announce the launch of Variations & Rarities: 2004-2019 Vol. I, an ongoing audio series. The first installment features six selections of completely unheard material from roughly a three-year period in the middle of the band’s career. Whereas traditional rarity collections can feel like an archive dump (wherein the songs don’t have a discernible relation to one another in any capacity), Vol. I has been meticulously crafted to flow seamlessly from beginning to end, communicating a long-form narrative that can only be experienced in

Genre:Rock / Indie
Live At Old South Church is a special live recording from Beverly, MA’s Caspian. Originally issued in 2012 on the Mylene Sheath label, this formal reissue on Dark Operative marks the first time it has been in print physically in over five years. On October 22, 2010, Caspian put on their own benefit concert in Boston, MA with proceeds of the performance going to Amirah, a non-profit organization focusing on whole-person care for survivors of human sexual trafficking. Live At Old South Church is a document of that night’s performance, recorded during the band’s touring cycle on the “ertia album. It is a mix of songs from You are the Conductor (“Last Rites”), The Four Trees (“The Dove,” “ASA,”), and Tertia (“Concrescence,” “Sycamore”). As one might imagine, a hometown show in front of a hometown crowd benefitting survivors of such harrowing and traumatic circumstance lends to a performance that fires across all emotional cylinders. Live At Old South Church captures Caspian amidst such catharsis and healing, fully encapsulating the confident triumph and jubilant exhilarations found within songs such as “Last Rites” and “asa” and the delicate, introspective beauty present in the melodies that shape “Sycamore” and “The Dove.” If transcendence is the goal of any given live performance, then mission accomplished.

Tertia is the second proper full-length effort from Beverly, MA’s Caspian. Originally issued in 2009 on the Mylene Sheath label, this formal reissue on Dark Operative marks the first time it has been in print physically in over five years. Following up a much-heralded debut fulllength often presents itself as a much taller order than most bands can ever possibly anticipate. In the case of Tertia, however, Caspian charges headlong into what has become a perennial tradition of crafting albums as entire wholes… all utterly devoid of filler or inconsistencies. In an era where the skip function is always a threat and used more than any prior generation, the band deftly crafts compositions that work in unison. To skip any given track on Tertia would be akin to ripping out an entire chapter of a great novel before reading it or skipping the first scene in the third act of a great movie. Tertia also finds the band, without words, somehow working in moments, if not entire songs, evocative of the geography, climates, and romanticism of their native New England. The song titles are but hints, as Caspian’s ultimate distinction above the vast majority of bands is to successfully partner with each individual listener toward the creation of something entirely unique behind the personal lens of said individual… a bespoke narrative limited only by one’s imagination.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Kitchen is the first aural glimpse into the Vespertine project, a collaborative concept wherein the entirety of Chef Jordan Kahn’s new Culver City restaurant has been custom-scored by Los Angeles’ own This Will Destroy YOU. One of seven pieces written for the building itself (and even the space around it), Kitchen is the music that diners first hear as they are greeted by Chef Kahn before dinner service begins for the evening. In composing the music for this interaction, This Will Destroy YOU’s Chris King and Jeremy Galindo sought to convey a warm, hospitable – if not reassuring – tone for listeners that may (or may not) be present elsewhere as they discover and explore the spaces in and around Vespertine’s looming architectural monolith for the remainder of their stay.

Originally debuted in June of 2018 as part of Adult Swim’s Single Series, “Hornet’s Nest” has been a staple in the band’s set, a fixture on satellite and terrestrial radio, the band’s fastest song ever to hit 1,000,000 streams (by over a year), and a fan favorite ever since. In the fall of 2019, Dark Operative issued tour flexis to accompany Power Trip on their co-headling North American tour with High ON Fire. These are the remaining copies from that run.

Bound/Cured are two brand-new songs from the Richmond, Virginia/Asheville, North Carolina/San Diego, California, quartet Bleach Everything. Their first new recordings since 2019’s split LP with Integrity, Bound/Cured goes even further into both the pure violence put forth on 2018’s So We Gnaw LP and the melodic components introduced on the aforementioned Rftcc recording. Clocking at 1:29 and 1:08 respectively, both songs get in, get to the point, and then get out with razorlike precision, cutting exactly as intended. Thematically, “Bound” explores the uncertainty of luck and life and never truly knowing how it can, will, and can still shake out. “Cured” addresses the notion of figuring out how one must come to terms with the truth before death takes care of the task. It took you longer to read to this point than to experience both songs in their entirety.

"Vespertine" is the musical score that This Will Destroy You composed for Chef Jordan Kahn's 2-Michelin Star restaurant of the same name. The score originally ran exclusively at the physical site of the restaurant in Culver City, California since its grand opening in late 2017. The program consists of seven pieces specifically written for moments within the building itself (and even the space around and on top of it).

The sequencing of the album is an attempt to mimic the order in which diners at Vespertine encounter different spaces throughout their experience. "Rumble" is the ever-present hum and ominous force surrounding the immediate exterior of the building. "Entrance" signifies the crossing over from the terrestrial realm into the inner atmosphere of "The Waffle" structure, where the evening begins to unfold. "Kitchen" is an warm, hospitable piece that accompanies a personal encounter with Chef Kahn. "Rooftop" and its celestially-inspired movements often pair perfectly with clear nights atop The Waffle. "Dining Room" sets the tone for a multi-course main dinner service. "Exit" is another transitional piece signifying the end of the main service and setting the stage for a supplemental experience. Finally, "Garden" welcomes diners back into a semi-terrestrial realm wherein after-dinner sweets and beverages accompany reflection upon the evening's moments, all in full view of the looming architectural monolith that is The Waffle.

Following in their own tradition of a staggering 1-2-3 punch, The Four Trees erupts with “Moksha,” “Some Are White Light,” and “Sea Lawn,” all three being live staples to this day and “Moksha” routinely cracking the top 5 out of all of the band’s output across their entire discography at Spotify. What follows is eight more songs (including audience favorites “ASA,” The Dove,” and “Our Breath In Winter”) meticulously arranged and placed perfectly within the program to create a true, dynamic journey across the sonisphere. If there’s one thing Caspian. accomplishes every time out, it’s to paint pictures or a visual narrative in the mind’s eye as each album unfolds. The dynamics purposefully serve the whole. The refrains create actual shifts in narrative tone. The climaxes and bombast are all toward logical conclusions within a larger story. The Four Trees established the long-standing tradition of entirely great albums from start to finish for Caspian. and still stands as a beacon for music fans that want bands’ records to actually “go somewhere.”

You Are The Conductor is the brilliant debut album from Beverly, MA’s Caspian. Originally issued in 2005 on the Dopamine Records label, this formal reissue on Dark Operative marks the 15th anniversary of the record and the first time it has been in print physically in over six years. They say you only get one chance to make a first impression… and Caspian clearly took that old adage to heart. “Quovis” into “Further Up” into “Further In” is one of the most impressive 1-2-3 punches on any debut album, to the point where fans of the band started referring to all three in tandem as “The Trilogy” both live and when referencing the record itself. “Loft,” “For Protection,” and “Last Rites” provide the perfect balance and counterpoint to the introductory salvo, all three still finding themselves worked into Caspian live sets to this day. Happy 15th anniversary to an album that has only become more poignant and revered with each passing season and every new generation of listeners discovering the real power of instrumental music.

Now comprised of core members Jeremy Galindo and Christopher King with the addition of drummer Robi Gonzalez, New Others Part Two continues in the band’s new tradition of a familiar, but evolved ethos wherein the memorable melodic component present in their early work once again soars atop progressive sonic territories for the band and listener alike.
