Epilogue of a Car Crash…A Tribute to Orchid 12” LP
I had the idea for this ambitious project back in June, 2012. Once I got the go-ahead from Jayson and Will a few weeks later, I started emailing bands to take part. After having multiple bands pull out, changes to artwork, packaging and so many other delays with bands recording, I am delighted to finally launch pre-orders for the Dog Knights tribute record to the most influential Screamo band of all time. Orchid.
There are 24 bands on this 44 minute record; 11 on side A and 13 on side B. Most of the tracks are from Chaos Is Me, Dance Tonight! and Gatefold, but there are also a few from the ‘skull’ split with Jerome’s Dream, the 6” split with CombatWoundedVeteran and the Self Titled 7”. I have put a lot of thought into this whole package, and I hope that Orchid fans will notice (and appreciate) the nice small touches.
The cover layout for the vinyl version is a complete Dance Tonight! ‘rip’. The labels and fold-out insert inspired by the Chaos Is Me record.
The CD version and Pre-order print/cover art features a re-working of Angela Davis from the Gatefold record. All artwork by Rodrigo Almanegra; who has yet again done an amazing job.
