To purchase a vinyl copy:

"Authentic yet often ineffable greatness that would define Silkworm’s next 11 years of activity, the reissue of In The West is a grand corrective gesture with no expiration date.”- Andrew Earles

This definitive reissue of Silkworm’s second album In the West marks its first appearance on vinyl.

It has been remixed from the original 2" tape at Electrical Audio in Chicago with Steve Albini, who also engineered the original recording in 1993.

It was remastered with Matthew Barnhart at Chicago Mastering Service.

The revamped cover art is courtesy longtime fellow traveler Mike Hoffman, Jr. Mike repurposed some elements from the original art by Adrian VanEgmond and otherwise operated in the spirit of the original packaging.

Everything visual was put together as usual by the band and David Babbitt.

Limited to 1,500 copies worldwide.

In addition to the album In The West, supplemental material for this release includes:

-A full-color insert with new liner notes by Silkworm’s Tim Midyett.

-Single-only tracks “Incanduce California” and “In The Bleak Midwinter” plus a live version of The Dream Syndicate’s “Halloween” recorded at Chicago’s Lounge Ax in 1994 join the full album on the package’s enclosed compact disc.

-Six previously unheard renditions of songs from In The West recorded direct to DAT in 1991 at Avast! Recording Company in Seattle. Download only.

-Six previously unheard live recordings of songs from In The West provided by Tim Cook. Download only.

-A full Silkworm quartet set from March 1993, recorded at Lounge Ax and made up almost entirely of songs off In The West. Download only.

In all, that’s over 2.5 hours of music!
