In early 2017, Thousand Yard Stare went into the studio to record their first EP for 25 years. Instead, they recorded two, emerging with kissing cousins DeepDreaming and StarGrazing. A progression in sound as would be expected after a quarter of a century, yet still inherently stamped with the TYS trademark sound and words, the two EPs show a band who have awoken re-juvinated, marking their second coming with arguably their best material to date.
The two EPs are brought together onto one deluxe CD gatefold package with fold out litho printed booklet with artwork and lyrics for each track on the double EP.
DEEPDREAMING EP/ STARGRAZING EP
After 23 years, TYS returned to the studio to capture the essence of their 2016 selves. Recorded in two days at Brighton Electric in an effort to create a 'live in the studio' vibe of a band re-energised after two decades away, the result is the aptly titled Live At Electric Studios. Taking in versions of many of their live and EP/LP favourites plus a sprinkle of brand new tracks to freshen things up, LAES serves both as a fan's compilation or as a first introduction to Thousand Yard Stare...
"Live At Electric Studios ..serves as both a fitting epitaph and sophisticated gateway for fans old and new whilst whetting the appetite for more new material in the process. Long may their revival continue!"
Drowned In Sound
"A triumphant return for Slough’s finest, Live At Electric Studios captures Thousand Yard Stare in fine form indeed...a solid, triumphant and welcome return and paves the way for hopefully a full long player of new material. In the meantime, enjoy this one, rediscover their small but delightful back catalogue.."
