Electronic Saviors 2: Recurrence is the six-disc sequel to 2010’s Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music To Cure Cancer. To be officially released on May 8th, ES2 not only contains six physical compact discs of music exclusive to the compilation, but an additional two hours of bonus material available as a download. Early adopters were offered the option to purchase a “premium edition” of the set which not only included the six discs on the normal release, but added the download-only material on two additional physical CDs as well as including other goodies.
It has been nearly a month since online orders for the premium edition of ES2 have been closed as limited supplies went quickly. Anyone wishing to purchase it must now attend one of the many ES2 release parties which will be occurring in major cities across the United States. However, goth and industrial fans in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who missed out the first time now have a second chance in advance of an official release party to grab the ES2 premium version.
Locally, one release finally seeing light of day for the first time on Saturday [April 21st] will be the second Electronic Saviors compilation. Put together by longtime industrial-music promoter, musician and cancer survivor Jim Semonik, the comp is being released next month by Philly’s Metropolis Records. But Eide’s Entertainment (1121 Penn Ave., Strip District), where Semonik works, will offer a special edition version on Record Store Day. The premium package includes an 8-CD set, some extra swag like a wristband and sticker, and literature from Gilda’s Club and BRICKS, a Pittsburgh-based organization that helps young adults living with cancer. It’s available only on Record Store Day; Semonik will DJ an in-store set Saturday as well.
To wit, should you be in Pittsburgh on Record Store Day, get yourself to Eide’s and all this could be yours:
