A selection of new material and new versions of classic tracks, finally available on vinyl.

We’re delighted to announce the upcoming full length album from The Frixion. To Hell and Back is a culmination of the band’s work to date, presenting a diverse mix of brand new tracks and refreshed versions of existing material. This is the first time the band’s material has been available on vinyl, but it won’t be the last.

Gene sheds some light on the process that led up to this album: "This release has been a long time in the making and it means a lot to us both to release everything the way we want it to be heard, especially to have it on vinyl. We released all our songs before playing them live, and they tend to take on a life of their own onstage; suddenly you get extra ideas, melodies, harmonies - you find the song actually works better live at a different tempo, or with an extra drum pattern - it's pretty amazing. With all this knowledge we returned to each track and updated them. Tim Dorney really helped us navigate that process and give the whole release a universal sound. We have a distinctive sound I think, aside from our musical style - it's easy to recognise The Frixion when a track comes on. I think this release is really diverse and for us it draws a line under four of our most incredible and challenging years together - To Hell and Back."

A vinyl release marks a longstanding personal goal and a landmark moment for the band. "When I started buying music it was always vinyl" says Lloyd. "I loved going to my local record store and digging for hours with friends; and now having my own album on the format I love is amazing. Placing an album on the turntable and dropping the needle just feels RIGHT! You’re locked into it then for 40 minutes. No skipping after 10 seconds... it’s the way music should be heard."

Gene adds: "Our music being on vinyl is the ultimate. There is nothing like the sound, the feel, the weight or the journey. Vinyl is special - I spent so many years of my life visiting Rough Trade in Portobello Road annoying Nigel who worked there. They had everything you could ever want and the record shop was just where you went on the weekend before taking your records home and disappearing into the world created by the music. My vinyl collection in my formative years was an extension of my body and even today i am still known to DJ on vinyl occasionally!"

The vinyl edition also includes a bonus download of extra material and remixes.
