On October 16, 2020 Valencia’s 'Dancing With A Ghost' will receive the vinyl treatment for the first time with a special Ten Year Anniversary Edition via Know Hope Records.
Originally released on October 12, 2010 by I Surrender Records, 'Dancing With A Ghost' marked a momentous turning point not only in sound but also in both the personal and professional life of the band.
“Everyone experiences change in one form or another throughout life. Whether it’s a self-forced internal change, or the universe throwing you a curveball. In the wake of 'We All Need A Reason To Believe,' we all experienced changes in our own ways personally, and as a band. 'Dancing With A Ghost' in its title form, symbolizes those changes and how we experience, learn, and grow from them," says vocalist Shane Henderson. ‘They’re songs of fighting yourself like hell on numerous social and personal topics, wanting to be better, and learning the hard lesson of letting it all go. It is that struggle in ourselves I think many of us are determined to figure out, and we attempted to figure out through this album.”
Presented in three unique vinyl variants and housed in gatefold packaging, 'Dancing With A Ghost' receives the deluxe presentation it has always demanded. The artwork has been completely reimagined by guitarist Brendan Walter, and sees the inclusion of an expanded eight-page insert and bonus 7” EP comprised of alternate version tracks. These additional songs, never released before, are taken from the original recording sessions and only available in this first time pressing.
Also available is 'Enjoy The Fruits,' a limited-edition coffee-table book curated and designed by the band. 'Enjoy The Fruits' is a career-spanning look into the world Valencia with over 100 pages of content drawn from not only the band's personal archives, but from the archives of their families, friends, fans, and crew. The oversized coffee-table book is strictly limited to a one-time printing in a soft cover matte edition.
