Pitchfork's Jason Heller highlights Decompositions in 'My Decade in Music So Far"

It’s no surprise that Decompositions evaded most best-of lists for 2012 and 2013; the release was split between those two years, format-wise, and CTTS was never the kind of band to pay attention to the fine art of the self-promotional hustle in the first place. But one full, deep listen to tracks like the album’s astounding eleven-minute closer, “North Star, Inverted”, ought to be enough to at least sway the uninitiated, if not outright convert them.

First wave of As the Roots Undo repress on Gatepost Recording available 5/16

We have repressed As the Roots Undo for it's 10 year Anniversary!
We tried to have them ready for the entire spring tour but ended up getting them just a few days ago.
The repress is going to be available in two waves.

500 will be chipboard gatefold jackets with two color screen printing inside and out.
The vinyl color for these are black(300), and bronze//ochre mix(200) standard  weight.

1000 will be available later in the summer. These will be a triple gatefold in full color. 
The vinyl color for these are grey w/aqua blue mix(600), and bone white w/black splatter(400)
Since the original art files were scattered between various software files, legacy operating systems and friend's old computers, a lot of reconstruction effort went into the repackaging. So it's taking
more time but it's very close.

Here is the link to our merch page to keep an eye on.
Next Friday, May 16th 2014, the silk screen versions will go on sale.
Thank you all so very much.
