The album was mixed by Chris Sheldon (Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Therapy?), mastered at Abbey Road Studios and will be available in multiple formats including a standard CD, special edition, Mediabook (48p booklet, bonus track), 180gr Gatefold LP + entire album on CD, and digital download.

Glad to hear this. I think this will help Oceansize grow a larger fan base. I have been a big fan of Oceansize for about 5 years now. They are very underrated and talented, and if you are a fan of PT you should check them out.
