Pale Saints ‎– The Comforts of Madness 30th Anniversary Re:Masters Deluxe LP clear vinyl

On the eve of a post-Thatcherite Britain, the Pale Saints, alongside the likes of Lush, Ride and Slowdive, were ushering in a new wave of Britishindie. And in 4AD, they found a perfect home for their music - an exciting & undeniable meld of noise and dream-pop.
Their 1990 debut album, The Comforts of Madness, didn’t disappoint, now standing as one of the best of its era. Pitchfork placed it in their recent piece on The Best 50 Shoegaze Albums Of All Time saying, “There’s a restless urgency, particularly when the volume swells and the rhythms intensify. That energy not only keeps (it) vital, it emphasizes Pale Saints’ inventiveness, how they channelled softness and rage into something distinctive.”
30 years later, and The Comforts of Madness is finally getting the reissue treatment. A faithful LP repress is being released as well as a double CD edition and a limited, one-time press double LP edition on clear vinyl, both coming with a bonus disc of previously unreleased demos and the band’s only Peel Session, recorded in 1989.
