Throwing muses purgatory paradise cover

Originally released in 2013, “Purgatory / Paradise” gets reissued on double vinyl with a gatefold sleeve. Emerging ten years from a hiatus, it’s a formidable 32 track opus of tangible bliss from the alt-rock heroes. Devised as a book with essays by Kristin Hersh with art by drummer Dave Narcizo, it’s a fractured album about loss, most tracks are short, broken, some are even reprises. Everything is tentative with memories listed in order of disappearance – includes Milan about a neighbourhood in New Orleans where Hersh’s house was destroyed by hurricane Katrina, Static that deals with a close loss of a close friend and Terra Nova an ode to the band’s first break up.

Available on double Black Vinyl. Throwing Muses released their long awaited Purgatory/Paradise in 2013, 10 years after their previous studio album this vinyl reissue features all 32 tracks from these alt-rock heroes.
