Announced: Delays – Faded Seaside Glamour (Vinyl Reissue)

Delays are reissuing their acclaimed debut album Faded Seaside Glamour – which went in to the Top 20 on its original release in 2004 – on 27 January, 2023. This will be the first time the Southampton band’s first record will be available on vinyl.

The new edition comes on a limited-edition orange LP, accompanied by deluxe packaging, a print of singer Greg Gilbert’s original artwork and new sleeve notes written by keyboard player Aaron Gilbert. A standard edition of Faded Seaside Glamour on classic black vinyl will also be available.

Nearly 20 years have passed since the album’s original release and while much has changed – most notably the loss of Greg Gilbert, who passed away in 2021 after being treated for cancer – Delays’ music has not only continued to thrill audiences, but it has made greater and greater connections as new generations have discovered the band’s enthralling tunes.

Home to iconic Top 40 singles ‘Nearer Than Heaven’ and ‘Long Time Coming’, Faded Seaside Glamour tracks, including the melancholic ‘No Ending’, the beats of ‘Stay Where You Are’ and chiming opener ‘Wanderlust’ demonstrate the remarkable depth of this unique debut.
