Released: 11th November 2007 & 31st October 2015
This is the ultimate bundle to show the evolution of 'Two Down'. This is a limited edition bundle that features the very first pressings of Two Down's 'Origins?' which has been unavailable to purchase until now.
THE TWO LOST BOYS: This is 'The Two Lost Boys' by Two Down which the band began writing on the 16th of June 2007. Many versions of the songs exist but in late 2014 the band decided to re-record every element and finally created this piece of work. This is the end result of years of work and we are pleased to offer you the physical version exclusively at Hurt Records.
The album was recorded by Ben Slack and Callum Richardson. Drums were performed by Steve Muncaster at The Fish Factory Studios, London. The strings were arranged by Ben Slack and Ellie Wyatt and performed by Ellie Wyatt. The album was engineered by Ben Slack and Tim Morris. The album was Mixed by Tim Morris. The Two Lost Boys was mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios, London. Artwork design by Benn Down.. Origins? is Two Down's debut album. The album title is apt considering the entire album was created on the same day that the band assembled.
ORIGINS?: Origins? was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in 24 hours. The album immediately solidified Two Down's sound, aggressive, uncompromising and full of attack. The album was recorded at Two Down's studio in Brighton and was mixed and mastered by the band. The process of both the mix and mastering sessions were not standard, the band decided to ignore the loudness war's parameters (the popular name given to the trend of increasing audio levels on CDs and in digital audio files over the last few decades) and set forth, mixing and mastering the album to their specifications.
For the first time ever, the original Origins? masters are available to purchase as .wav files in 44.1kHz, the highest possible quality at the same price as MP3. Please enjoy this re-issue of Two Down's debut album.
