Official press release:
Fans of Atlanta-based, heavy rock innovators, Mastodon, can’t seem to get enough of their favorite band. As their current coast-to-coast co-headline tour with Dethklok, High On fire and Converge draws to a close as it approaches the West Coast this week, a brand new, limited version of their current album Crack The Skye will become available online only. The last limited Edition item sold out well in advance of the on-sale date. To accommodate the demand from fans for more, the band wanted to create another exclusive item for those who may have been left out.
Thus, the Royal Edition of Crack The Skye will contain the album in its entirety along with the complete version of the album score. This ultra special edition will come housed in gold foil embossed Digi-book package with all new gold and black logo artwork designed by Paul Romano. The package will also contain an exclusively designed 6"x 6" artwork lithograph available in this package only plus a bonus instantly available downloadable versions of "Divinations," and "Colony Of Birchen," (both Live from XFM UK).
Pre-orders of the royal edition are available right now through www.mastodonrocks.com only and will begin shipping on December 15, 2009. The cost is $38.98, and this will be available one time only; once they are gone, they will not be created again, so don’t delay. The first handful to order this Crack the Skye Royal Edition will receive their lithograph personally signed by the members of Mastodon. Don’t delay – this item is sure to sell out immediately.
