These Immortal Souls - I'm Never Gonna Die Again LP
Release Date: April 12th, 2024
Finally re-released after 30 years, this record was remastered from the original tapes at legendary Birdland Studio by Lindsay Gravina and original These Immortal Souls members Harry Howard and Genevieve McGuckin. This is available alongside the 2024 remaster edition of their debut album, Get Lost (Don't Lie!), and EXTRA, a brand new album including unearthed live recordings and remasters of covers tracks from across their career.
I'm Never Gonna Die Again was originally released in June 1992, after a long hiatus brought on by a crippling case of writer's block from lead vocalist and guitarist Rowland S. Howard. These Immortal Souls announced their return with the gritty lead single "King of Kalifornia," their first release on Mute, which was quickly followed up by the album. The band were joined by Anthony Thistlethwaite (The Waterboys, The Saw Doctors), who performed saxophone and slide mandolin on the record.
The band consisted of Australian-born Rowland S. Howard, who rose to prominence as Nick Cave's collaborator in the Birthday Party, his bass-playing brother Harry Howard, drummer Epic Soundtracks (formerly of Swell Maps and Jacobites), and keyboardist Genevieve McGuckin. They came together in 1987, after Soundtracks and the Howard brothers split from Crime & the City Solution and were joined by McGuckin to form These Immortal Souls in London.
