Today the test pressings of Stages arrived and we can confirm DMS have done an incredible job. Crazy levels of diligence, attention to detail and experience throughout, and the results speak for themselves. They’ve produced a beautiful pressing, retaining the clarity, depth, dynamics and detail we spent so long getting just so. These things can so easily be lost with sloppy pressing/mastering, so it’s a joy to hear the physical record turn out quite so good. We couldn’t be happier, and while we’ve pulled out all the stops to make all formats as gorgeous as possible, hearing these songs on vinyl today felt uniquely special – the full, coloured, double/gatefold package is gonna be a THING to behold.
