Released in April 2008, this was the band’s twentieth album and the only one for Sanctuary via their new owners Universal. The album featured a new British-based line-up after the departures of the American musicians who had been recruited to salvage a 2006 tour of the US. Mark E. Smith, keyboardist Elena Poulou and bassist Dave Spurr remain from the previous incarnation. They were joined on Imperial by guitarist Pete Greenway and drummer Keiron Melling. The album was well received and charted at no 35 in the UK album charts. This vinyl version is one of the most sought-after albums on that format as the initial pressing amounted to around 1000 copies. This yellow vinyl limited edition has been re-mastered by long term Fall engineer Andy Pearce.
