These Arms Are Snakes/Pelican split update

The split release featuring These Arms Are Snakes and Pelican that was first announced a year ago is now finally nearing completion and will soon be available in 10" format (with a limited amount of CDs) via Hydra Head Records. These Arms Are Snakes elaborates: "Our split/collaboration with Pelican is off to the pressing plant and should be all packaged up in time for our West Coast tour with sBACH in September. For those not hip to the news, we teamed up with Pelican for their encore at Islington Academy in London back in the spring of 2007. Nine dudes on stage played through Pelican's Pink Mammoth. We decided to recreate that moment by releasing a version of the song with contributions from both bands. But the trade off was forcing Pelican to contribute their embellishments to our song Diggers Of Ditches Everywhere. I must say: those nerdy post-rockers really know how to make a song so layered and textured that you can get completely lost in the expansiveness of the sound. They definitely transformed it into something totally new."

I wanna buy this split, because it's Pelican... but I don't wanna buy it because it also includes These Arms Are Snakes. Decisions, decisions.
