12" Vinyl Listening Instructions - From The Band:
The album has been quartered into separate bundles of tracks, which we are calling the 4 Stages of the Animal. These stages are "Hunting", "Lurking", "Resting" and "Waking". Being a double vinyl each of these stages will have its own vinyl side. The vinyl will not be marked with a chronological order. This way each side will be its own self-contained unit and can be listened to as so if preferred. We intend this to emphasize a lack of a fixed starting point, as the album can start at whatever side of vinyl is placed down first. Additionally there will be a unique colour-scheme to guide the musical and thematic flow if desired.
The 12" LP artwork and layout is designed to reflect the ideas behind the music. It may provoke an immediate reaction of disdain or even disgust. There is not meant to be a ‘right way up’ - it is designed to disorient as well as reinforce the idea of no fixed starting point, and thus a continuity.
