Chad VanGaalen's Skelliconnection vinyl with bonus album

In breaking Chad VanGaalen news: Canadian vinyl specialists Melodiya Records are issuing a very limited-edition, double-disc, 160-gram Skelliconnection with an entire bonus album included. 11 extra tracks - outtakes from the sessions and some new songs, including "The Gun" below. It's a gatefold issue with 40+ drawings, and basically sounds amazing. It's due out March 13th, and you can order a copy here.

VanGaalen is also appearing at the Flemish Eye/White Whale SXSW showcase with the Cape May, Castle Project and The Mohawk Lodge.

Skelliconnection didn't quite match the greatness of Infiniheart for me, but I'm willing to bet there's some worthy tracks in the bonus album to even it out a bit.
