They ship on 6/17 (next Friday.) Unless you're us, then... well, I'll tell you in pictures. I came from work to this:
And yelled, "Holy shit, living proof that the word 'fragile' is completely useless on a package, even when you upgrade the message from a stamp to sticker!"
But our records made it safely. And they look so fucking rad.
You know, it's always cool to have your music recorded, cooler still when it gets put out by a label (which means someone other than you gives a shit about it), cooler yet when it's on vinyl (for obvious reasons), but what's been the coolest of all for me on this record is being involved first-hand (or both hand...ed actually) in the packaging and design, because it's something I've never done. The layout I made on my bedroom floor with a glue stick, some paint, and typewriter came to us all slick and professional, having totally lost its flaking-off-the-paper-that's-textured-like-the-face-of-the-moon-from-all-that-thick-ass-paint look it had when I originally did it. Wild. I hope you all like it.
In other news, our tour starts soon. We've been practicin', learning a new cover to keep in our cover arsenal, getting our sharpies in order so we can hit the road. See you there y'all!
