Two Coil albums dating back to the mid-1990s will be reissued this May

Dais have announced the upcoming reissue of two mid-1990s Coil albums, A Thousand Lights in a Darkened Room and Worship the Glitch.

A Thousand Lights in a Darkened Room, accredited to Coil Presents Black Light District, was originally released in 1996 and came at a time that the group's two core members, Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson and John Balance, took on new membership with the addition of Drew McDowall.

"Conceptually abstract, Black Light District shows Coil's old guard disregarding the pop rhythms found on previous albums, such as Love Secret Domain, and fully embracing their experimental electronic trajectory," says a press release from Dais.

The second of the two albums, Worship the Glitch, was originally released in 1995 on Coil's in-house label Eskaton. The label describes it as Coil's "first proper album-length attempt at conceptual ambient composition, with a radical focus on chance".

The two albums will be reissued on vinyl on May 25 and can be pre-ordered here and here.
