San Francisco-based heavy rockers ORCHID have just announced the release of ‘The Zodiac Sessions‘ on November 18, 2013 via Nuclear Blast.

The Zodiac Sessions‘ consists of the band’s early works – 2009’s ‘Through The Devil’s Doorway‘ EP as well as the critically acclaimed debut full length ‘Capricorn‘ (2011).

For ‘The Zodiac Sessions‘, both releases have been completely remastered and put on one CD in a lavish digipak featuring an all new cover art, created by the band’s multi-talented singer, Theo Mindell.

The release will also be available on vinyl, with both parts of ‘The Zodiac Sessions‘ released separately – on 10“ (‘Through The Devil’s Doorway‘) and on 2LP 12“ (‘Capricorn‘). They will be available in various colours.
