Formed in 1981, The Verlaines have gone on to be one of Flying Nun's most important acts, releasing nine albums, countless singles while influencing musicians around the world. Now these two records will be available again on 12" LP, CD and digitally.
Both re-mastered and with bonus art-work, Hallelujah - All The Way Home will be re-issued in its' original gatefold format along with a replica album release poster, while Juvenilia features a full 10 page booklet with liner notes from songwriter Graeme Downes, plus lyric sheet reproductions and poster images. The CD version of Juvenilia also has the extra bonus tracks from the 1993 re-issue.
The records are pressed and on their way, with pre-orders now available here - and to get you in the mood, you can watch the video for Death and the Maiden here:
