• NEW REMASTERED & EXPANDED RELEASE OF THE 1987 ALBUM BY HOW WE LIVE
• FEATURING STEVE HOGARTH OF MARILLION
• WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED ON CD
• FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND LINER NOTES

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the 1987 album “Dry Land” by How We Live.

How We Live was formed in 1985 by vocalist and keyboard player Steve Hogarth and guitarist Colin Woore in 1985. Both musicians had previously been in the New Wave band The Europeans. Signing to the CBS imprint Portrait Records, “Dry Land” was the band’s sole album.

Issued in 1987, the album was a fine collection of melodic and imaginative rock music that, despite featuring some excellent songs, somehow failed to make any commercial headway. By 1988 a disillusioned Steve Hogarth was considering abandoning music when he was invited to replace Fish as vocalist in the Progressive Rock band Marillion, where he reached a wider audience. The song “Dry Land” would later be recorded by Marillion on their album “Holidays in Eden” and was also a Top 40 hit when released as a single.

“Dry Land” was reissued briefly on CD and is now sought after by Marillion collectors. This new expanded edition of “Dry Land” has been newly re-mastered from the original Portrait masters and includes the bonus tracks ‘English Summer’ and the 12-inch remix of ‘All the Time in the World’, both originally issued as 12-inch singles in 1987.
