After some back and fourth on when this EP was gonna see the light of day, the release info on the third single from the Martin Gore/Vince Clarke collaboration known as VCMG is finally official.  The “Aftermaths” EP hits the streets running on Aug 20th. There will be a 12″ with remixes from LFO and Alva Noto as well as a digital single that will feature bonus remixes from Vince himself as well as Christoffer Berg and Gesaffelstein. It’s great to get the info on this one and we look forward to it’s release. Personally, I can’t wait to add this 12″ to my collection as I still obsess on vinyl singles.

Here’s the official press release:

VCMG release EP3 / Aftermaths on 20 August 2012, with remixes from Vince Clarke, LFO, Alva Noto and more.
