Coalesce, along with pretty much every band we had the pleasure of working with in the late 90’s, destroyed, re-conceptualized, and rebuilt hardcore to be 100 times more fierce, courageous and audacious. While kids ready to cut it up in the pit whined about breakdowns now having off time drumming and manic, inventive guitar lines, true fans of progression rejoiced.
Which is precisely why “There Is Nothing New Under The Sun” is now being presented with eight additional jams—including those from Coalesce’s split EP with Boy Sets Fire, the band’s first attempt of “Supernaut” not included on the In These Black Days Sabbath tribute seven-inch series, an Undertow cover, and a Get Up Kids cover.
Hydra Head has truly gone all out on the packaging for this one (view the layout and design notes here). In addition to being designed by Aaron Turner the packaging itself is something to behold: gatefold, thick cardboard, silvered ink, die cut, inner sleeve - a lot like vinyl. Mark put it best:
"The logistical process to create this gatefold goes something like this: print outside of gatefold (this is then glued on to the cardboard that creates the gatefold itself), get it approved by us. Print on the cardboard, get it approved by us, take it to the die cutter to score the template to make the actual gatefold, send it back to the printer, have printer assemble gatefold and glue outside to gatefold, send back to diecutter to diecut each circular whole thrown one panel of the gatefold, send back to printer for quality check, send from LA to NY, insert CD into innersleeve, insert CD/innersleeve into gatefold, apply upc sticker to gatefold, skrinkwrap gatefold, apply two stickers to cover of shrinkwrapped gatefold."
