Collective777 members and collaborators, Jeff Martin and Robert Buratti of Lodge777 (Perth) have embarked on an artistic project to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Tea Party’s classic album, ‘Edges of Twilight.’
The Edges of Twilight helped propel the band into mainstream success in their native Canada, where it reached double platinum status and earned the band several Juno nominations, including “Best Rock Album” and “Group of the Year”. The title of the album is taken from a chapter of the book Fire in the Head, by the American author Tom Cowan, which also inspired the name of the first track on the album.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Edges of Twilight, The Tea Party released a deluxe remastered CD, remastered LP, and a North American tour. The deluxe CD also includes a bonus disc that includes alternate, live, radio sessions and bonus audio and the booklet features the story of the album with new band interviews and previously unseen photos.
In addition, the band commssioned the Perth-based artist, Robert Buratti to complete 12 original artworks and 12 short films (one for each song) which would form part of the live show. \
The Australian tour commences in Perth on 9th November before making its way across the country. See details at www.teaparty.com
