Between 1992 and 1997 iconic Alternative Rockers SEIGMEN released 5 classic albums: “Pluto”, “Ameneon”, “Total”, “Metropolis” and “Radiowaves”. Sadly, these were only ever released as CDs, but, as previously announced, Karisma Records plans to do something about that by releasing all five albums in both CD and Vinyl formats in December 2019 (which also happens to be SEIGMEN’s 30th anniversary ).
Whilst this in itself is a considerable feather in the cap for both band and label, Karisma would like to take it one step further, if the fans are behind the idea, by releasing a limited, and exclusive, vinyl box set.
The box set will include all the albums on 180 gram coloured vinyl. Additionally, “Total”, “Metropolis” and “Radiowaves” will be expanded to Double LP sets, with selected B-side tracks as a bonus. The Box Set will also include a booklet written by the band’s manager Øystein Ronander, a SEIGMEN slipmat for your record players, and a CD with carefully selected unreleased material.
All items above are exclusive to the Box Set and will not be available separately anywhere else.
Additionally, Karisma will release a limited 7″ vinyl single of the track “Monsun” which will only be available through the Crowdfunding campaign, and will be limited to 250 pieces. “Peter Parker Theme” will make up the B-side of the single, and this track will not be included in the Box Set.
For the most die-hard collectors out there, Karisma will also make available for purchase a few complete test pressing. These will be housed in white outer sleeves which will be signed and numbered.
An extensive track list, and more information about all the SEIGMEN items available through the Crowdfunding scheme, and how you can get your hands on them, can be found in both English and Norwegian at fnd.uz/seigmen
To celebrate this significant release, SEIGMEN will perform a series of shows around Norway in December. The first one to have been announced will take place on the 19th at the Sentrum Scene in Oslo. More dates will be announced shortly.
