SUBVERSION 2013 OFFICIAL VIDEO (Directed by Nicholas Murphy)
The remixing of The Quiet Earth to produce the 2013 4-CD reissue is almost complete.
Disc one will contain the original This Quiet Earth album, originally recorded and mixed by Chris in 1998, with all vocals re-sung by Chris and all tracks re-remixed by Adam Calaitzis in 2013 to finally present the album in the form that Chris wanted. Disc two will include 12 b-sides from the period, again re-sung and remixed. Disc three contains outtakes and alternate versions. Disc four is comprised of twelve completely unreleased tracks that were recorded between 1997 and 1998.
The 4-CD reissue will come in a foldout 8-panel pack (as for In the Shadow of the Angel and Flowers for the Gathering reissue), with a brand-new cover design. Due to the positive response to the Echoes of Silence box set, we will also produce a limited edition box set of This Quiet Earth which will likely contain the 4-CD set, a t-shirt, postcards, a photo booklet, a silver amulet (symbol on the 'Subversion' cover), a USB with additional bonus material and the newly-produced film clip for 'Subversion'. More details to come soon.

6 MARCH 2013: CD SETS OF VINYL-ONLY RELEASES NOW SHIPPING
Thank you to everyone for your patience. Our two website CD sets, Reqiuem and Everlasting, and the 'Azkadelia' CD single, are now shipping after manufacturing delays due to a faulty master disc and loss of the second master disc in the mail. Here are some photos of the finished products.
2 MARCH 2013: CD SETS OF VINYL-ONLY RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE
We’ve had a lot of requests for IKON material that was only available with the recent vinyl releases, so we’ve decided to make a small amount available as CD sets exclusively through the website.
The ‘Requiem’ 3-CD set ($30.00), the new ‘Everlasting’ 2-CD ($30.00) with the Flowers for the Gathering demos and the final live show performed with Michael Aliani from 1996, and the Azkadelia 7”, released as a CD single ($15.00) comes in a digipac. All three are available for $60.00.
