Out now: Gridlock - The Synthetic Form 2 x LP

Viasonde has reissued the debut album from Bay Area experimental electronics duo Gridlock, breathing new life into "The Synthetic Form." Available on June 7th as a double LP, this marks the first-ever vinyl edition of the album. Viasonde has pressed 250 copies in clear with black and bone splatter, alongside 250 standard black vinyl editions. Each LP will be housed in a gatefold cover adorned with updated artwork. For the first time since its original 1997 release, "The Synthetic Form" will also be offered as a digital download via Viasonde's Bandcamp page.

In a poignant tribute to the late Mike Wells, who tragically passed away in 2022, Viasonde, in collaboration with the Wells family, is on a mission to reintroduce Gridlock to audiences worldwide. They plan to reissue all four of Gridlock's main albums on vinyl. Furthermore, 50% of the proceeds from LP sales will be directed to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, a fitting homage to Wells' memory.
