Shellac - Dude Incredible
This is Shellac‰۪s fifth album. Recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve Albini‰۪s Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. The record was mastered by Steve Rooke at Abbey Road.
Both the CD and LP versions of ‰Û÷Dude Incredible‰۪ come packaged in a chipboard album jacket with two high gloss, full colour monkeys on the front cover. The LP includes a copy of the album on CD.
Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analogue domain using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process. The LPs are being manufactured at RTI in Camarillo, CA, using their HQ-180 system. The pressings are 180 gram audiophile quality.
This record will have no formal promotion. There will be no advertisements, no press or radio promotion, no e-promotion, no promotional or review copies and no promotional gimmick items.
The band will continue to play shows or tour at the same sporadic and relaxed pace as always. There is no correlation between shows and record releases.
