Helado Negro’s galvanizing 2016 album Private Energy will be shared in expanded form, appearing on (double) vinyl for the first time alongside new CD and digital editions via RVNG Intl. Supplemented with three new “versions,” this iteration of Private Energy will deepen the feel of Helado Negro’s ongoing spectral and transmissive opus.
