Bossk and Rinoa Split LP Announced

Eyesofsound is set for a strictly limited release that brings together the late Bossk with labelmates Rinoa.

Rinoa follow up their stunning debut EP with new song "Fires In The Distant North" and live favourite "Eyes Closed," a newly recorded song that pre-dates the EP. Both were recorded in January 2009 at Bandit Studios with Jonny Renshaw of Devil Sold His Soul.

Fresh out of the studio, Rinoa guitarist, Jozef Norocky also of Symmetry speaks about the recording:

"One of the best weekends ever... Jonny is the most accommodating person there is and he's done an amazing job making the new songs sound astronomically huge."

The Bossk side will feature previously unreleased material, details of which are to be finalized with the band. Bossk unfortunately called it a day in October 2008 so rare live material is what can be expected. Keep a look out for further news on this.

To be released only on vinyl with a digital download voucher and limited to 500 hand numbered copies, this release will be available exclusively from Eyesofsound.

In the meantime you can check out a pre-mastered version of "Eyes Closed" by Rinoa on their Myspace page.

You can also catch Rinoa headlining an intimate show at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston, London on Friday 30th January 2009, support comes from Latitudes and Dragged Into Sunlight.

Pre-orders will start on February 9th 2009.
