Awesome work, I noticed that some of the images have that misplaced section within the scratch lines like in the fourth pic... Did you use photoshop do all the artwork? Or do you dabble in other programs? I also notice you draw out the ideas before you head to the computer to manupilate artwork further. Is there a moment where you went different direction with the artwork than what you had planned before? Like as if there happy accident that you came up with an different feel/idea...

Exceptional artwork, but I expected something different from the album. Still keeping my fingers crossed for a reunion tour.

Beautiful, Grey Divide is among the brightest gems in Isis' catalogue. Also if you are sitting on a full recording of the 2006 performance between Isis and Tim Hecker I beg you to give that gift to the ears of the world, the six minutes I've heard is sonic orgasm

Working on getting the full audio of the ISIS Tim Hecker set - we'll see what happens, though I'd love to see that released in some form. As for a reunion tour... highly, highly unlikely...

Tracklisting in the LP version is quite confusing. It's like cd tracklisting. There's disc 1 and disc 2 written on the back cover but there's three LPs. Did you do it on purpose or was it accident?

I was so stoked when you guys put this out. I bought it on Itunes and being that I am a language teacher in LA for immigrants, I use my laptop to play MP3 files for my students, by accident, this came on, and my students were like "this isn't English!" They were all staring at each other. Right, so I met Mike G randomly in Eagle rock when we were both wearing Bad Brains shirts, I was like whoa nice shirt and so was he, then I was "whoa you're 1/5 ISIS, so random." Is the cover photography an image of looking down at LA near the Eagle Rock area? It looks like it.

Awesome art work!
I'm glad I could buy this treasure last week when I was in LA
The only thing I didn't realize that cover pic was also from LA!
What was the location where the picture was taken?
