Remix EP, split 12" and European tour dates

Several great things happening in May. First, we're so excited to announce that Sockets Records and Planaria Recordings will be jointly releasing "Splayed Flesh", a CD EP featuring four remixes of Extra Life. The remixers are Tyondai Braxton (Battles), Caley Monahon-Ward (Extra Life), JG Thirlwell (a.k.a. Foetus), Justin Broadrick (Jesu, Godflesh)... I know! I can't wait for people to hear these. Each of the guys did something totally personal and deep with the material. The CD features an original drawing by Lauren Bahr, the wonderful artist who designed the new T-Shirts.

Also in May, Planaria will be releasing our split 12" single with Larkin Grimm . It will feature a studio recording of our cover of R Kelly's "Your Body's Callin' " and two new exclusive tracks by Larkin. Wonderful cover art by Sophia Dixon :
