Victories At Sea – Everybody’s Lost and All I Want Is to Leave – Deluxe Edition (digital)
A year after the release of the album Everybody’s Lost And All I Want Is To Leave, Victories At Sea comes with a deluxe edition. With the reason to ease Covid’s burden, and of course also to celebrate the album’s one-year anniversary.
The band had spent so much energy and time on the album, creating something that was a total piece of music: something they were proud of and wanted to share with their fans, but suddenly they couldn’t. Shows were rescheduled and later even canceled.
During quarantine the three men played together at a distance: two in Birmingham, one in Liverpool. While playing Daniel Johnston’s “Some Things Last A Long Time”, they got a feeling they had never experienced together before. It provided a poignant moment that was so satisfying that this became the start of the Remote Apart Sessions, in which they play album tracks and covers.
To celebrate the anniversary of Everybody’s Lost And All I Want Is To Leave, Victories At Sea is releasing the full Remote Apart Sessions, including the Johnston cover and an alternate version of album opener ‘When The Dark’, as part of a deluxe edition from the album.
The band hopes to be able to play the album live. Those shows will definitely come. In the meantime, enjoy the Deluxe Edition.
