Bass player Tim Atkinson invited us to design an identity and cover for Leader of Down’s first album – Cascade into Chaos. Dan Luckin painted the album cover featuring the band’s ‘weredog’ character in an homage to 80’s metal, punk and reggae covers. We designed a band monogram and created hand-painted typography. The CD booklet makes use of Tim and Würzel’s rich archive of previously unpublished photos and ephemera stretching back to Würzel’s time in Motörhead. We collaged the material around band lyrics and painted elements. The album was released by Cleopatra Records on CD and purple vinyl.
Leader of Down are currently touring and will support Phil Cambell and the Bastard Sons on the German leg of their European tour this Autumn.
