In 2006 after the success of They’ve Got Blood Like We’ve Got Blood, White Hills main man Dave W. decided to put together a full band instead of continuing White Hills as just a recording project. Trying out many different line-ups and configurations the trio of Dave W., Ego Sensation, and Bob Bellomo finally came together and would become the core White Hills band for nearly a two year period. It is with this core trio that the band made their classic early albums Heads on Fire, Glitter Glamour Atrocity, as well as Abstractions & Mutations.

Abstractions & Mutations was originally released in 2007 as a tour only CD-r for a UK tour White Hills did with Spiritualized guitarist Tony “Døggen” Foster’s solo band DØGNTANK (which also featured long time White Hills collaborator Antrønhy ØH on drums). The album contains both studio and rehearsal recordings from the very inception of this full band version of White Hills. Most tracks were recorded in one take and no overdubs were used. Stand out tracks “Eye to Eye” and “Left Behind” were recorded in just one day. The entirety of it was recorded, mixed and produced by Dave W. in New Jersey and New York City (except for “Eye to Eye” and “Left Behind” which were recorded by Bob Bellomo and mixed by Dave W.)

Immune could not be more excited to present Abstractions & Mutations on vinyl for the first time. The CD-r edition has been repressed a number of times but is long sold out and this material has been criminally unavailable. For this first time vinyl edition the material has been mastered and cut to vinyl by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering in Brooklyn, pressed on virgin vinyl, and packaged in a classic old-style tip-on jacket printed on uncoated stock and featuring brand new paintings by Dave W.

White Hills are currently signed to Thrill Jockey Records where they have released four full length albums and two EPs. 2013 will see a brand new White Hills album on Thrill Jockey as well as an appearance from the band in Jim Jarmusch’s upcoming film Only Lovers Left Alive (starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin).
