Finally back in print for it’s 10th Anniversary, the one and only Palms album featuring Chino Moreno of Deftones/Crosses with members of the band Isis. Features two new tracks never before released physically.
The vinyl has been out of print since it’s initial release in 2013 and has been going for $100+ on Discogs in recent years. With this reissue, the band has added two new tracks “Opening Titles” and “End Credits”. These songs were unearthed earlier this year and released as a digital single. This will be the one-and-only time they’ll be released physically, as part of the limited 2LP gatefold release.
After the demise of Isis in 2010, Caxide, Harris and Meyer decided they wanted to continue making music together. Moreno, a longtime Isis fan, joined later, saying, “I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound. I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so”.
Palms also proved to be an outlet for Caxide, Harris and Meyer to expand their sound beyond what Isis was. Caxide said, “I think a lot of people are expecting this to sound like Isis with Chino singing. That’s not what this is, because that’s not exciting”. The former Isis members intentionally strayed away from the compositional methods of their former band. Caxide said, “When we were writing these songs, I was coming up with ideas that I would never have presented to Isis. I don’t want to call this ‘pop music,’ but it’s more in that vein than anything I’ve ever done”.
