A complete re-recording of the band’s 1998 debut, Redux is the culmination of nearly 4 years work and sees the return to the band of bassist, Dave Boylan and introduces John Bonham on vocals. With a vastly improved production sound, Redux updates established tracks and reinstates 2 songs that were omitted from the original 1998 release. Originally headed for a digital only release, thanks to a successful pre-order campaign with funding provided solely by the band’s fanbase, Redux was also released on CD with brand new artwork.
Guitarist Dave Morrissey explained the reasoning behind the album:
“I thought the first album was good enough for its time but I was never very happy with the finished product. We didn’t have the budget or the time to really do what we wanted. With recording technology advancing so far in recent years, the opportunity was there to give that album a fresh coat of paint. And we all decided that if we were going to do it, we were going to do it right and not cut corners. The songs may be a few years old but they’ve never sounded better than they do on this album.”
