KSCOPE CONTINUES SWEET BILLY PILGRIM RE-ISSUE CAMPAIGN WITH THE MERCURY AWARD NOMINATED 'TWICE BORN MEN' ON VINYL LP.

2015 saw the UKs unsung heroes of experimental art rock London based Sweet Billy Pilgrim, join the Kscope roster and release their label debut & fourth album 'Motorcade Amnesiacs' to critical media acclaim.

Following on from the release of 'Motorcade Amnesiacs', Kscope began the re-release campaign for the bands earlier albums with their 2005 debut 'We Just Did What Happened And No One Came', 23rd September sees the release of the bands 2009 Mercury Prize Nominated album 'Twice Born Men'.

The 2016 LP version of 'Twice Born Men' has been remastered by Sweet Billy Pilgrims Tim Elsenburg and Francis Kimberley (Hungry Bear Mastering), has brand new cover artwork and a printed inner bag featuring lyrics and sleeve notes written by current vocalist Jana Carpenter. The 8 track LP will be presented on 180g heavyweight black vinyl.

The trio - Tim Elsenburg ( singing, guitar, producer, mixing), Anthony Bishop (banjo, bass) and Alistair Hamer (sequencing, drums) caused quite a stir with their, navigating the delicate path between self-referential art rock and melodic folk rock; their follow up in 2009 'Twice Born Men', originally released on David Sylvians Samadhi Sound label, saw the SundayTimes awarding it 5 Stars and CD of the Week as well as an inclusion in their Top 100 Albums of 2009.

'Twice Born Men' is at heart a melodic beast complimented by the exquisite swooning shiver of Elsenburgs vocal, ultimately, a beautiful album, which will appeal to fans of alt country and art-pop and should also be appreciated by lovers of great music everywhere.
