The Black Heart Procession – The Waiter Chapters I-VIII 12″Pre-Orders Up Now!

October 17, 2017

The Black Heart Procession have released various albums on Touch & Go and Temporary Residence over the years, and now, Robotic Empire is honored to be releasing a vinyl collection of The Waiter songs! Pre-orders are now up for this November 17th release, just in time for their fall North American tour: Order Here

Originally pressed as a limited tour only CD with 7 songs, it quickly sold out. Now available on vinyl for the very first time, tracks 6 & 7 cannot be found on any studio album and the collection now includes a brand new, never released Waiter song, track 8! Limited to 1,000 copies, 500 on clear vinyl and 500 on black. The band will have these on tour and those shows are listed below so get out and see them!

Hailing from the sun-drenched shores of San Diego, California, The Black Heart Procession has sought to bring their unique dream of winter to life for nearly 2 decades. Over the course of 6 full-length LPs and numerous ancillary offerings, their songs have captured the essence of heartbreak, the tragedy of discord and the exultation of redemption. Through it all, a mysterious figure, known only as The Waiter, has made intermittent yet poignant appearances – his is a world of cold, sorrow and loss, which we experience through his ceaseless turning of memory and dream.

Chronicled here in one volume are the exhaustive laments of The Waiter – 8 chapters which span across those 6 albums and numerous releases, including one rare and one previously unreleased title. Listen and wait, unburden the heart and soul – and dream, dream, dream, my lonely one…
