The Appleseed Cast announces 15th anniversary reissue of Mare Vitalis, North American tour

on May 18, 2015, 9:35am

Kansas’ post-rock heroes The Appleseed Cast have announced a reissue of their sophomore record, Mare Vitalis, to mark its 15th anniversary. The limited edition double-LP is due out June 30th via Graveface Records.

Frontman Chris Crisci designed the new artwork (above) featured on the gatefold tip-on sleeve Stoughton Printing made for the album. Housed inside the jacket will be two 180-gram colored 12-inch vinyls made from virgin lacquer. The first disc will be half black, half milky clear with white splatter, while the other will inverse that by being half white, half milky clear with black splatter. Members of the Graveface Record Club will receive vinyl colored exclusively for them.

Bundles that include a T-shirt and buttons are also available, with the vinyl being pressed in “very limited” quantities. Pre-orders for all packages are available via the Graveface store here.

To celebrate the release, the band will play the record in its entirety on a huge North American tour this summer. They’ll be joined on various dates with Dads, Annabel, Coaster, and Dikembe. Find their full schedule below.
