Has it already been fifteen years? BSP still sounding utterly irresistible the second time around.

On the 15th Anniversary of its original release, Rough Trade Records are excited to announce a reissue of British Sea Power’s majestic second album, ‘Open Season’, will be released on 6th November, 2020. The expanded reissue will include additional live sessions, B-sides and rarities from the period and extensive new sleeve notes. The double LP format is a one-off pressing, housed in a gatefold sleeve, the first disc on blue vinyl, with the second being a zoetrope picture disc.

The majority of the original album was recorded by Mads Bjerke (Spiritualized, Primal Scream, Girls Aloud) and mixed by Bill Price (Sex Pistols, The Clash, Sparks). Two tracks were recorded and mixed by Graham Sutton (The Delays, Bark Psychosis) and Phill Brown (Sly Stone, Led Zeppelin, Talk Talk).
