In 2002, while the Church was on a short hiatus, Marty Willson-Piper (The Church, All About Eve, Moat) and childhood friend/producer Dare Mason (Placebo, The Church) collaborated to record under the name Noctorum for the first time. The result was their debut album, Sparks Lane, which immediately turned into absolute classic and cult favorite amongst hard-core fans. The band is delighted to release this classic for the first time ever on vinyl for RSD Drops 2021. Pressed on grey vinyl.
The cover art by the late Greg Daville was composite images put together to form an unlikely reality. The device featured in the picture is called an orrery and is a real thing ‘ a working mechanical model of our solar system.
This exclusive release will be printed in a beautiful gatefold Vinyl packaging, in a suitable ‘moody’ grey colored vinyl with download card included. Limited to 1,000 copies worldwide.
