Pale Horses is the title of mewithoutYou‘s highly anticipated sixth album, which will be released on June 16th by Run for Cover Records. As always, the record’s artwork is centered around a series of illustrations by Vasily Kafanov, with imagery and tones that echo the gritty, darker themes of the music. I worked directly alongside the band’s singer Aaron Weiss, and manager Mike Almquist, to design & lay out the packaging for the record. The pre-orders just launched at midnight last night, and you can order a standard edition LP, CD or cassette from Run For Cover Records. Or, for the collectors is a Limited Deluxe 2xLP + 2 CD Edition which comes packaged in an intricately die-cut triple-gatefold jacket. It also includes a poster, lyric booklet, and postcard set of additional artwork from Vasily. As proud as I’ve always been to collaborate with this group of individuals, the songs on this record are unlike any of theirs before. I think their loyal fanbase will be very excited to hear nods to the band’s earlier records, but also Aaron’s lyrics reaching a new, unchained individuality.
I’ve included the single Red Cow below, and also the album’s teaser video below the product mockups.
