Both albums will be available at the band’s 2018 tour stops and online
Toad the Wet Sprocket is pleased to announce remastered reissues of their seminal albums Fear and Dulcinea on vinyl to be sold on their 2018 U.S. summer tour and for order online beginning July 18th, along with new Toad The Wet Sprocket merchandise – such as newly designed t-shirts, totes, and water bottles.
“For years fans have been asking us to reissue our Fear and Dulcinea albums on vinyl. Now, in cooperation with Sony Music, these albums are finally getting the vinyl treatment they deserve,” says bassist Dean Dinning. “I personally supervised the remastering and vinyl cutting with Eric Boulanger and his crew at Bakery Mastering in Culver City, CA. The vinyl masters have been cut on the lathe at half speed for maximum resolution, and then they are pressed on 180 gram vinyl.”
He further explains, “For fans wanting the ultimate Toad listening experience, these new vinyl editions definitely deliver. We are thankful to have our fans still with us from the time these albums were both initially released to now, and I hope you enjoy these albums as much as I did remastering them.”
Toad will continue their tour into fall with newly added dates to support their latest releases, New Constellation (2013) and The Architect of Ruin EP (2015) and will be performing fan favorites “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “I Will Not Take These Things for Granted” featured on the multi-platinum break-through album Fear and “Fall Down” and “Something’s Always Wrong” from the follow-up platinum album Dulcinea. These tracks are included on All You Want (2011), which is available at shows and online.
Fans can secure VIP Meet & Greet packages with a ticket purchase which will include: one pre-show meet and greet with the band, one photograph with the band, one live acoustic song performance, one exclusive VIP tour laminate, one autographed tour poster and one premium reserved seat ticket (or early access to seating if a general admission show, where available).
Toad the Wet Sprocket has new music coming this year and will be featured in two upcoming compilation projects. The track “One of These Days” will be included in the upcoming animated motion picture Animal Crackers, and “Nothing Can Stop My Love” is on the Roger Miller tribute album titled King of the Road out August 31st alongside other notable artists such as Dolly Parton, Eric Church, Willie Nelson and Kacey Musgraves.
