COIL – Love’s Secret Domain – 30th Anniversary Remastered From Wax Trax! Records

Hello Wax Trax People!-Hope you all have been staying nice and toasty as winter continues to dump on us throughout the US (We feel for you Texas!).

Hopefully this little WAX TRAX! update will be a nice warm diversion from this Winter-Covid-Wonderland that we have been trying to dig ourselves out of. Let’s get to it – Shall we?

As some of you may have heard, one of the things we have been working on for a while is a WAX TRAX! exclusive 30th anniversary of COIL’s Love Secret Domain. Well, the rumors are true and we are very excited to bring you the only official release that joins forces with the last remaining member of COIL’s lineup from the LSD sessions, Stephen Thrower.

Over the decades, the release has always been one of the crown jewels in the label’s catalog and we are excited to bring this landmark release back in print. Remastered to its full glory from original source materials only through WAX TRAX! RECORDS.

For those not familiar with COIL’s original WAX TRAX! release in 1991, it came at a very precarious moment in the WAX TRAX! timeline and we have always felt that the original roll out three decades ago was slightly abridged. We’re here now to make things right.

Pre-orders at the WAX TRAX! ONLINE STORE are now available. These records will start shipping on the official release date of Summer Solstice, JUNE 20, 2021. A lot of love went into this project and as a result, we have a few special pressings that should satisfy the most diehard COIL fan.

VINYL + SHIRT BUNDLE (PRE-ORDER ONLY)

Special pre-order bundle for the Amber Deluxe Edition. Vinyl includes a reproduction of the original The Snow T-Shirt. This shirt was slated to be a promotional item back in 1991 but was scrapped at the last minute and will only be available here while supplies last. Once the album is officially released, this shirt will be deleted and not printed again.
