"Carnival" was originally released in September 2005, 25 years into New Model Army’s career, and it had been their first studio album in more than five years. “We always felt that this was the one album where the recording, mixing and mastering didn’t bring the end result close to what we had originally intended.”, says Justin Sullivan. “So, when earMUSIC declared their interest in licensing and reissuing the album, we discovered four associated tracks (B-sides and unreleased songs) to add to it we saw an opportunity to ‘reimagine’ the album as a whole.” The band found all the original recordings and gave them to Lee Smith, co-producer and mixer of their recent albums, including last year’s “From Here” (their highest charting album ever, in both Germany and the UK) and “Carnival” has been reborn with a sound that is far sharper and more powerful and cohesive than the original. “We are aware that it is very dangerous for a band to ‘go back’”, says Sullivan, “so we made one absolute rule, that we wouldn’t re-record anything and we’d ask Lee to remix it using only the original multi-tracks, without too much involvement from us. Some songs have changed very little, others quite a lot. And to our minds, this has worked well and has enhanced the album’s principle qualities, particularly the wealth of original musical ideas, at last arranged in a sonically satisfying way. We hope you enjoy it.” The album will become available as a Limited CD Media Book Edition as well as for the first time ever on vinyl. As a Strictly Limited Heavyweight Double LP Gatefold Edition on White Vinyl. These limited editions will be followed by a CD Digipak Edition as well as a Heavyweight Double LP Gatefold Edition on black vinyl once limited editions are sold out.
