August Stars In and Out of a Grey or Silvery Dissolution is a companion download to Invisible in the Dusk. Both releases take their titles from lines, or perhaps more appropriately, fragmented lines in the Ted Hughes poem "Rain". The cover art is a black and white detail of an in progress painting by Sean Madner. Sean was originally creating the artwork for the abandoned EP Drawn Away.
In and Out of a Grey or Silvery Dissolution includes the recordings omitted from Invisible in the Dusk, demos recorded during the same period, alternative versions and three tracks salvaged from the Drawn Away EP.
It will be available for free download from Monday 21st November 2011.
