Victor Villarreal Tours Europe, "Invisible Cinema" European Pressing, & new split 7"!

On March 31st guitarist/madman Victor Villarreal will kick off a 15-date European tour with Berlin-based post-rockers mOck! In conjunction with the tour, Joyful Noise has released a special limited-edition European pressing of Victor's until-recently-sold-out LP Invisible Cinema. Limited to just 190 hand-numbered copies, the European pressing features alternate center label artwork, but like the original US pressing, it maintains the conceptual "invisible" artwork: clear vinyl, packaged in a clear picture disc sleeve.
A select number of copies are available for online purchase:


In addition, Victor Villarreal and mOck are releasing a split 7"! Co-released with Germany's Coraille Records, the 7" is limited to just 300 copies, comes with instant MP3 download, and features band-spankin-new tracks from Victor Villarreal and mOck. We have fewer than 50 copies in stock!

Victor Villarreal / mOck split 7"

In case you have never heard mOck, we highly recommend you check them out. The band's s/t album is released in Europe on March 30 via Coraille Records and in the US on April 17th via I Love to Hate Records. Their contribution to the split 7" is the jazzy-awesome 6 minute track "Arms and Tales". The Victor Villarreal track is the sweet ditty "Suspended Nerve", featuring Vic's signature tumbling rhythms and finger-picking as well as a guest female vocalist.
