Individual copies

We will have a limited run of 100 copies *only* of each of Strapping Young Lad's albums on white vinyl and 100 copies *only* of each album on black vinyl. There will be no bonuses, including no bonus LP, and no 7".



"The Complete Works" Box

2-part, side-entry, hard case, custom-cut boxes.

Mock-up and NOT to actual scale. Only for visual reference.



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We were also plied with hundreds of photos from master Jed Simon, featuring many beautiful and unpublished images from SYL's main live photographer, as well as from "The New Black" photo sessions and photos from Gene Hoglan ''Official Page'''s sister, Jed himself,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 "Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing" LP

All configurations of this album will be pressed on 200-gram heavyweight/audiophile-quality/virgin vinyl, as well as on 350gsm heavyweight-board gatefold jackets.

Upper left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket exterior
Lower left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket interior
Upper right + Lower right panel: Printed Inner Sleeve

The gatefold exterior features the cover artwork as previously posted, with the reverse showcasing the SYL text logo created in similar style to the new SYL graphic logo.

The gatefold interior features photos from the album's original release with background textures from the original album cover.

The inner sleeve features the original album artwork on one side and cartoon graphics from the original release, as well as lyrics and credits from the original album and the new vinyl release.



Strapping Young Lad "City" LP

All configurations of this album will be pressed on 200-gram heavyweight/audiophile-quality/virgin vinyl, as well as on 350gsm heavyweight-board gatefold jackets.

Upper left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket exterior
Lower left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket interior
Upper right + Lower right panel: Printed Inner Sleeve

The gatefold exterior features the cover artwork as previously posted, with the reverse showcasing the SYL text logo created in similar style to the new SYL graphic logo.

The gatefold interior features photos from the album's original release, as well as the Japanese-style SYL logo.

The inner sleeve features the original album artwork on one side. The other side features a photo from the original release, as well as lyrics and credits from the original album and the new vinyl release.

Here's the last massive post on the matter. Thanks for bearing with us :]

Strapping Young Lad "SYL" LP

Upper left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket exterior
Lower left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket interior

Upper right + Lower right panel: Printed Inner Sleeve

Strapping Young Lad "Alien" LP

2 Left panels: Gatefold Jacket
2 Right panels: Printed Inner Sleeves

Strapping Young Lad "The New Black" LP

Upper left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket exterior
Lower left + center panel: Gatefold Jacket interior
Upper right + Lower right panel: Printed Inner Sleeve

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.

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.

90% of box sets now shipped.  We've got quite a list of positive endorsements here, positive notes from around 100 people already.  This sold out just before pre-orders ended.

Thanks to all of you who helped support!
