    Strapping Young Lad: The Book

    The book contains liner notes, written in full by Devin Townsend himself. The notes catalog the entire history of the band and break down each album's creation from the leader's own perspective.

    We were also plied with hundreds of photos from master Jed Simon, featuring many beautiful and unpublished images from SYL's main live photographer, as well as from "The New Black" photo sessions and photos from Gene Hoglan ''Official Page'''s sister, Jed himself, and other fans and friends. We hand-selected the ~75 best photographs and interspersed them carefully throughout.

    Strapping Young Lad "The Book" -- a look inside

    The book will be cut to the shape of an LP gatefold (approximately 12" x 12"). Shown here are 4 sample pages from the interior.

    The text is a professionally-edited culmination of Devin's thoughts over the years about each period in SYL's career (categorized by album). For you super fans, the meat of the text could look familiar, but it's because these are Devin's definitive thoughts which've been built over long periods of reflection. Included with the text is a brand-new foreword with Devin's final thoughts on the band, his life, and this entire retrospective.

    Also included are approximately 75 stellar and private images, supplied by Jed Simon -- most of them never seen before. The photos have been taken by the band's main live photographer - Axel Jusseit - as well as "The New Black" photographer - Omer Cordell - and a handful of others, including Jed himself, Gene Hoglan's sister, SYL roadies, and fans.

    Damn.

    Well thanks for kind words!

    We will just have to wait and see what happens!

    If they sell out, we plan on having a limited run (100) loose copies of each record available shortly afterwards.

    Sorry man ...

    We have private members who've donated money and get early pre-orders. They cleaned out the Die Hards ...

    Now:

    Die Hard + Splatter = SOLD OUT
    White = ~60% Sold Out

    ... thank you (if you got anything)!

    I got an order confirmation on a Die Hard. Hopefully this means I did manage to get one.

    There are only TEN copies of the White Edition left in the USA store and 19 left in the EU store, and we're selling more copies everyday. Just a heads up. This is the last tier to get the C:ENTER:###/Idom 7" in.
