7"/download Swallowed By The Mist by ((sounder)) and Bonnie Prince Billy


The Howlingest Call

Monofonus Press MF071

Swallowed By The Mist

Written by Mike Aho, recorded by ((sounder)) featuring Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, this song featured in the film True To This.
The 7" is included in the True To This Deluxe 3-Disc Box Set. On the b-side of the 7" vinyl is a custom etching of the True To This mandala.
The box contains the original feature film True To This on Blu-ray disc, a companion documentary that takes a deep dive into the Veeco film library
and explores what it means to be "true to this" on Blu-ray disc and a 7" vinyl recording of "Swallowed By The Mist"
The discs and vinyl are packaged inside a 48-page hardcover bound book featuring photographs from the Volcom vault and behind-the-scenes images from the making of True To This.

In May the song came out on a "super high-tech (white) vinyl flexi disk inserted into Monster Children #42".
The flexi only snuck into so many of #42, which was like hitting the lottery at selected retailers, or you could receive a guaranteed loaded copy from the Monster Children store.

At the end of the year the ((sounder)) album The Howlingest Call came out on cassette, featuring the music of the movies ‘The Lonely Life’ and ‘True To This’ and the song Swallowed By The Mist
