Released by Matador Records (OLE 459) in April 2001.
Matador says that Dilate is "an epic of mind-blowing intensity... and surprising beauty. If this album isn't the one to elevate Bardo Pond's status to that of one of the planet's most important rock bands, we're moving to Mars." The staff at Hummingbird Mountain will also be on that craft headed to the red planet if this album doesn't shatter your senses on first listen. More yet to come... Check out the only promotion Matador really needed to do for this record right here.
