‘may your heart be the map’ stands out as a marked departure from a more edgy-experimental-ambient sound, as witnessed on ‘Drakelow’ (2006) and ‘England Fallen Over’ (2005), and sees epic45 concentrate on something more bucolic and innocent, as described by Jude Rogers in 2007 for Word Magazine “Their ghostly, fingerpicked guitars, sampled found sounds, memories of shoegazery and dusty electronica conjured up old British films – and gave the Black Country it’s very own Boards of Canada”.

This anniversary reissue is presented as a deluxe heavy-weight gate-fold edition, with printed inner sleeves featuring new artwork and mini-essays by long-time supporters; journalist Rob Fitzpatrick (formerly Word Magazine) and cult American Novelist Scott Heim (We Disappear, In Awe and Mysterious Skin, the latter being adapted to screen by Gregg Araki), whom both share personal insights for their love of ‘may your heart be the map’.

You can pre-order the album via this link from 21st May. If you register interest you will receive a message when it goes live, the reissue is limited to 250 copies.
