Colour Sound Oblivion
Threshold House have announced 'Colour Sound Oblivion', Coil's official live video box set. To be released in the spring of 2010, it will consist of 14 DVD's, and will also contain postcards and other items. An 'Advance Patrons Edition' intended to help finance the production, was sold out within hours. Since then, Sleazy has announced that the same special edition will be available for ordering more generally in the new year, albeit without the patronage certificate that the 200 initial buyers will receive before christmas.

The Dark Age of Love
French label Ici D'Ailleurs have announced "The Dark Age Of Love", an album of reinterpretations of Coil songs. Rather than just being another tribute compilation, it was recorded as a proper album by a collective of artists operating under the name This Immortal Coil. Members include Yann Tiersen, Sylvain Chauveau, Will Oldham and Matt Elliott. Peter Christopherson, who has been playing selections from the album during recent appearances, describes the album as "The most extra-ordinary, beautiful, and moving, re-interpretations of Coil I have ever heard!".
