Broken Circles is thrilled to announce the re-release of the debut LP, Style No. 6312, from The White Octave, remastered and on vinyl for the very first time. The White Octave prominently featured Stephen Pedersen, original member of legendary emo band, Cursive, and future member of indie rock / post-hardcore band, Criteria.

In addition, the track sequencing has been restored with ‘Looking Past Sky’ being added, letting the album be heard as the band originally intended for the first time. Also, the LP will feature reinterpreted artwork by band member Lincoln Hancock. Vinyl and digital out September 16th, 2014 on Broken Circles. Pressing info below.

200 – Black

The White Octave will also be reuniting to play Hopscotch Fest in Raleigh, NC on September 6th.

The White Octave emerged in Chapel Hill and Durham, NC in 1998 from demos recorded by guitarist and songwriter Stephen Pedersen, formerly of Omaha, NE band Cursive. Material came together quickly for The White Octave, as the trio’s chemistry became evident to all who saw the band perform. Bob Weston was enlisted to record the group in the fall of 1999 at Mitch Easter’s brand new Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC. The gentlemen read Chunklet and dined on Prissy Polly’s BBQ, and the record that resulted was quite good. It was issued by the Deep Elm label in the year 2000.
