For those that missed the Kickstarter, you can pre-order a copy of the CD re-master of Wakin’ Up the Dead now from Retroactive Records:
“Some albums are great for their time. Then there are other albums so important they have the ability to transcend generations and decades. When Wakin’ Up the Dead was originally released on cassette in 1989 by the fledgling Blonde Vinyl Records, authentic, faith-filled driving alternative rock with lively bass and buzzsaw guitars was a rare find. Post-punk rockers and fringe kids were yearning for more than a distraction to their pain. They wanted and needed something real. Many songs from this album became sustaining anthems of hope for a broken world: The Bomb, Ocean Blue, House of Love, and Wakin’ Up the Dead remain important songs for a hurting world. The album emits an almost hypnotic beat resulting in a mesmerizing rock masterpiece with strong spiritual overtones. The music and the message of Wakin’ Up the Dead are essential companions on this journey we call life. The 2019 Retroactive Records (Legends Remastered version) has been remastered by none other than J Powell at Steinhaus so the album has literally never sounded better than it does now, and it’s packaged in a jewel case with a 12 page booklet with lyrics, band pics and all the stuff serious fans and collectors want! Breathe deeply, smile and prepare to experience this classic for the very first time, again!”
Also, for those interested in getting the vinyl version, those will be sold once the Kickstarter orders are filled. Stay tuned for details on that.
