In January 2019, They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening featuring contributions from John Carpenter, Slavoj Zizek, John Grant + many more and edited by Craig Oldham will be published by Rough Trade Books. In partnership with Mondo/Death Waltz Recording Co, a special edition version of the book has also been created and is being sold exclusively at screenings taking place in London, Los Angeles, New York and Austin,Texas on Wednesday 16th January. This special edition will be housed in a slipcase, and includes a signed and numbered money bill. Strictly limited to 750 copies worldwide.
To coincide with this publication, Death Waltz Recording Co. will be re-issuing the soundtrack to They Live featuring a stunning (and for now top secret) package design by Alan Hynes. There will be an exclusive version of this new re-issue available to attendees of the screenings—again strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide.
Spencer Hickman, Head Of Music for Mondo says, “They Live is as relevant now as it was when it was first released in 1988, maybe even more so. We are thrilled to be re-issuing the soundtrack and even more excited to team up with our friends at Rough Trade Books so to celebrate we have arranged multi-city screenings of this iconic and important film. We’re excited for you to see the vinyl package but we are keeping it under wraps until the new year, but believe me, the reveal will be worth it the wait.”
PLEASE NOTE : The Book and Vinyl will only be available to those with tickets to this screening of THEY LIVE.
