By popular demand, Prosthetic Records will soon release The Collective, the critically acclaimed 2011 album by Houston progressive instrumentalists SCALE THE SUMMIT, on vinyl. The LP â€” limited to 500 copies on high-quality 180-gram wax, and available now for pre-order at the Prosthetic Store â€“ will feature enhanced cover art, pictured above. Additionally, it will contain the bonus track â€œRedwoods,â€ a song recorded during The Collective sessions that to date has only been available on the Japanese version of the album.
The Collective, called â€œterrifyingly goodâ€ and â€œessential progâ€ by Guitar World, was recorded in late 2010 at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (Devildriver, All That Remains, The Black Dahlia Murder). It was supported by five North American tours in 2011 alongside the likes of Periphery, Protest The Hero, The Human Abstract, Fair To Midland, Cynic and 3.
