Miami Horror Releases ‘Illumination 10th Anniversary Edition’

March 20, 2021 BY Nettwerk


Today, Miami Horror, which began as a solo project by producer Benjamin Plant, releases the 10th-anniversary edition of their debut, the ARIA-nominated album Illumination.

Over the last decade, the band has garnered an impressive following, here and abroad with anthems such as “I Look To You (feat. Kimbra),” “Real Slow (feat. Sarah Chernoff),” “Holidays (feat. Alan Palomo)” and “Sometimes” from Illumination, which debuted at number 10 on the ARIA Charts.  They’ve also garnered acclaim from Billboard, NPR Music, Forbes, MTV, Pitchfork, Stereogum, EARMILK, and many others. They’ve graced the stages of festivals such as Coachella, Governors Ball, Electric Forest, Splendour in the Grass, Beyond the Valley, Just Like Heaven, Funka Fest in Ecuador, and Corona Capital Festival in Mexico. To celebrate the release, the band put together a 10-year retrospective that includes photos, quotes, and tidbits showcasing career highlights, including award nominations, EP/album releases, international tours, festival performances, and more. Check it out here:

In 2020, the idea to re-up Illumination first germinated. It began with a large demand for the vinyl to be restocked, but it morphed into something bigger.  “It was a chance for us to come back and celebrate the album in a way we didn’t get to at the time it was released because everything was so crazy,” he admits. “We never really got the chance to enjoy it. It’s a bit sentimental. We’re celebrating the atmosphere of what existed in music before streaming and social media. We got back to purely creating.” Ahead of the release, the band has dropped the synth-drenched reconstruction of The Church’s “Under The Milky Way,” “I Look to You (feat. Kimbra) [Franc Moody Remix]”, the official music video for “Soft Light (feat. Alan Palomo),” and “Emagination (B-Side).”

To further celebrate the release, Miami Horror has made a 3-piece vinyl set available for fans.  To order, click HERE. ‘Illumination 10th Anniversary Edition’ is available at digital retailers HERE.
