Black Light District

Black Light District (2002) is an EP by the Dutch rock band The Gathering.[2] It was first made available as an internet-only release on 2002-06-24, and officially went in distribution on 2002-09-16. The EP marks a 12½ year anniversary of the band, and also the end of their five-album contract with Century Media Records. Black Light District was released under The Gathering's own label Psychonaut Records, and it is the label's very first completely new release, however, since EP does not qualify as an album, the later released Souvenirs is widely regarded as the very first brand new album release of the label.
