Sleep's Dopesmoker remastered and reissued

Sleep's Dopesmoker has been remastered for reissue on Southern Lord and will be released with a live recording of "Holy Mountain" from 1994 (from the I-Beam venue in San Francisco). The record was originally titled Jerusalem, but in 2003 was rereleased as an alternate version and renamed Dopesmoker.

The reissue will also be getting new artwork by Arik Roper, who also created artwork for previous iterations of the record, and Earth's The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull. No official dates or format info have been released yet, but updates are on the way.
