In related news, fans who pre-order Negotiations from SubPop.com or buy it from select retailers on CD or LP, will also receive a quadrophonic companion CD called Aces.Aces is meant to be played simultaneously with Negotiations on two different stereo systems to create an enhanced spatial experience (read more about Aces here).

 

The Helio Sequence’s Negotiations will be available on September 11th via Sub Pop on CD, LP and at all digital providers. You can find full track listing below.

Negotiations, the fifth full-length album written, recorded, and produced by The Helio Sequence, would sound different had it not been for a flood. In 2009, while touring in support of Keep Your Eyes Ahead, singer-guitarist Brandon Summers got an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Back home in Portland, OR, the band’s studio/practice space was under nearly a foot of water. Heavy rains had caused the building’s plumbing to overflow like a geyser. But Summers and drummer-keyboardist, Benjamin Weikel, were lucky: All of their best equipment was either on tour with them, or racked high enough off the studio floor to be spared (read more at Sub Pop).
