Castles High, Marble Bright 8" Vinyl

$8.50

"Castles High, Marble Bright" was conceived, written and recorded alongside the collection of songs that would become Dust and Disquiet, an album that sought to capture the dialogue between a newly found, furrow browed cynicism and a fractured but unbroken sense of stubbornly epic, dramatically determined optimism that we've been trying to emulate with our music for 12 years. The 60 minutes of Dust and Disquiet ended up speaking a bit to both; Castles..." speaks exclusively and entirely to the latter. We find ourselves over a year later touring behind this collection of songs still, with over 150 shows in 30 countries across 3 continents in the can. With the end finally in sight as we look to close out this 4 year chapter together, "Castles High, Marble Bright" is our North Star, our way home, and our celebration of that decision to fully embrace the above dialogue head on, all the while finding that, indeed still, hope lies within.

"127 North" is the sound of 6 guys playing in a room together on a Friday afternoon, and is in some ways the least ambitious thing we've ever committed to tape. Free from the grip of over arrangement, overdubs, click tracks, excessive chin stroking and the like, "127 North" is what a Caspian song sometimes sounds like in its infancy. It's a vulnerable moment for us to introduce people to a song that exists in this kind of limbo, somewhere between improvisation and a fully composed piece of music. It's an honest moment and all a part of the process, of course. Maybe it's time to invite people behind the curtain a little... there's some old couches, a few beers and maybe a few high fives back here waiting for you. Some days are less serious than others, and that's quite alright with us.

Vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies. Each 8" White LP comes in a printed plastic sleeve and includes an instant grat download upon purchase.

Released October 20, 2016 on Triple Crown Records.
