Format: LP Vinyl
RECORD STORE DAY Offer the Light is the second release from Noctorum, the collaboration of Marty Willson-Piper (the church, All About Eve, The Saints) and multi-instrumentalist and producer Dare Mason (the church, Placebo, Wedding Present). Following up the success of the band's most successful album to date, 2019's “The Afterlife” (Billboard Album Chart #89) and the 2021's Record Store Day release of their debut “Sparks Lane”, Offer The Light will be an eagerly awaited pressing. Both The Afterlife and Sparks Lane sold out immediately and are currently out of print, making Offer The Light a sought after collector's item. It will available for the first time ever on Orange Vinyl with download code, exclusively for Record Store Day 2023. As any fan of The Church already knows, Marty's one helluva guitar player. Is an avid supporter of independent record stores, worked in one in Stockholm for years and has a Vinyl record collection of over 50,000 albums. He also hosts a daily blog and website called the “In Deep Music Archive” where he talks about Vinyl and albums from the past, showcasing several entries a day and having a loyal readership of several hundred followers a day. Offer The Light's sonic blueprint doesn't stray too far from The Church's blend of Velvet Underground menace and the Byrd's glorious jangle. Willson-Piper has written a rather beautiful '70s rock album, along the lines of Pink Floyd, but not too far from the band for which he is most famous.
