To mark the 25th anniversary of BOYSETSFIRE’s explosive debut, This Crying, This Screaming, My Voice is Being Born, Dark Operative is proud to reissue the album on vinyl and digital formats worldwide.
This Crying, This Screaming, My Voice is Being Born was recorded in March 1996 at Clay Creek Studios by Nick Rotunda. Known for powerful songs that still appear in the band’s live sets to this day – particularly “Vehicle” and “Resection” – this release also stands as a monument to the DIY ethic and spirit of enduring friendship itself, as the BOYSETSFIRE and Dark Operative owner/operator Brent Eyestone have worked together on this release via handshake since its inception, initially via Eyestone’s old label, Magic Bullet Records.
Packaged in a chipboard stock LP cover evocative of the exact aesthetic of the mid-1990s era from whence this record was initially made, the original silkscreen design has been faithfully replicated with a package rounded out with complete lyrics and credits included. All copies are on limited edition black vinyl with color vinyl planned for all subsequent pressings.
