In August 2016, The Butterfly Effect, one of Australia’s most iconic and beloved Alternative Rock bands - announced their official breakup.
Now, the four members of the band, Kurt Goedhart, Ben Hall, Clint Boge and Glenn Esmond are putting the final touches on that legacy by releasing the "B-Sides, Live and Rarities" digital selection - and their Self-Titled EP "The Butterfly Effect" on a single 12" Coloured White Vinyl - to match the double vinyl packages of the three albums released for pre-order in August.
The digital package contains 24 tracks - tracks from over their 17 year career that were featured as B-Sides to physical CD singles, as bonus tracks on Deluxe editions of their albums, stand-along singles not released on albums or the EP, Live tracks from the course of their entire career, demos of beloved singles AND completely unheard tracks that never made it to albums.
All Vinyl pre-order packages will be delivered for 11th November 2016 delivery and are available from http://www.thebutterflyeffectband.com.au from today MIDDAY AEDT. The "B-Sides, Live and Rarities" package is available NOW in iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and all online outlets, as well as The Butterfly Effect webstore.
The Butterfly Effect’s legacy stretches back to the heady days of the late 90s and early 2000s - held in the same esteem and part of Australian Alternative Music’s “Big Three” alongside Karnivool and Cog, they etched their name and fan base in stone across Australia and the world, many times over.
Through the course of their phenomenal career, The Butterfly Effect excited fans and brought venues and festivals to life with their three massive albums (all certified Gold), one incredible EP that introduced the world to the band, ARIA chart placements, triple j One Night Stands, Big Day Out main stage spots, overseas tours, DVD Documentaries and countless tours.
The four official releases from the band (The Butterfly Effect EP, Begins Here, Imago and Final Conversation of Kings) are now available across all digital platforms for purchase and for streaming, released independently via the band and Collision Course/MGM Distribution. Today they add the "B-Sides, Live and Rarities" package to those official releases and cap off a stellar and memorable career in Australian Rock History.
The Butterfly Effect formed in 1999 by original members Kurt and Ben, with Clint and Glenn being the second vocalist and bassist respectively – forming the seminal iteration of the band. After the release of their EP and their albums, they put themselves on hiatus in 2014. Save for a final tour and single following the departure of Boge, the band have never acknowledged the status of the project since that release.
