At the end of 2020 Mono released Scarlet Holliday, a surprise digital only single through its Bandcamp page, which included two songs “written with the idea of new hope for the new year since 2020 has become unforeseeably dark for many in the world”. Originally a home recording, but now reworked and newly mastered and mixed Scarlet Holliday will get a vinyl reissue as a limited edition 10″ EP and besides the title track and First Winter, it will also contain an additional new song called Epilogue. Out on Temporary Residence Ltd. and Pelagic Records it will be available in seven (!) different versions, as follows:

Metallic Silver (1,000 copies) as a US exclusive by Temporary Residence, Dahm’s First Born (250 copies), First Winter (300 copies), Blue Moon (400 copies), Transparent Blue (200 copies) and Subscribers LP (350 copies) all being EU exclusives by Pelagic Records, and also as regular black vinyl by both labels. And of course as a digital release available from all the online stores (check the list here).
