Boonville’s answer to Radiohead have got a fine treat for their fans. That’s right, Minus Story have made a limited edition mini-album available for cyber-consumers on the official Minus Story homepage.
Make the Dead Come is a limited edition CD that Minus Story created as a creative outlet in the middle of making their upcoming full-length My Ion Truss (due out this summer). In between recording sessions for My Ion Truss with producer John Congleton (The Polyphonic Spree, Explosions In The Sky) at Electrical Audio and Low Key, the band self-recorded Make the Dead Come on their 8-track in Kansas City. A thematic continuation and resolution of the death/ghost songs from their last two full-lengths No Rest For Ghosts and The Captain Is Dead Let the Drum Corpse Dance, Make the Dead Come is a darker and scarier journey with the group of Boonville, MS natives. On it, they rejoice in their trademark intuitive & distorted self-recorded style, which they’ve warmly named the Wall of Crap. This is their first recording with new band member Lucas Oswald, who contributes hammer dulcimer and background vocals. It is limited to 500 copies worldwide.
