Camper Van Beethoven
Release date: February 24, 2015
Camper Van Beethoven’s 2004 reunion release expanded and reissued!
Camper Van Beethoven reunited in 2000 and even recorded and released a pair of records, but it was 2004’s New Roman Times that was the “official” document of the band’s reformation. The band’s David Lowery states in his liner notes, that it was “the one that got all the press and fanfare. And it was a good thing, because it was an extremely ambitious record.”
Omnivore Recordings is proud to celebrate New Roman Times by presenting an expanded reissue on CD, Digital and double LP (with download card). Released in conjunction with the band, and following in the footsteps of last year’s Omnivore reissues of Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart and Key Lime Pie (both still available on CD and LP), New Roman Times features new artwork, extensive notes from Lowery and four previously unissued tracks culled from the sessions.
This definitive edition of Camper Van Beethoven’s “sci-fi alternate-reality rock opera” not only brings the fan favorite to vinyl for the first time, but expands and presents all formats in a way that proves these are indeed New Roman Times!
All hail, Camper!
