That's right friends - it's been a good year in the making, but the debut LP from Baltimore's one and only DEEP SLEEP is finally available for order!!! I can't tell you how thrilled I am or how excited (and a little relieved) it makes me to be making this official announcement, but this 12" is finally finished and came out perfect! I can honestly say that, while I was expecting nothing less than greatness from the band on this record, they surpassed my expectations and I'm just glad to finally be able to get it out to the masses.
For all of the early birds and mailorder lovers I have some nice WHITE VINYL (300 copies pressed) available now … aside from the advanced run we did for THE FEST back in October of 2010, this will be the only limited version so if you are into that sort of thing then grab it while you can! The LP also comes with a pretty rad 12x24 inch poster insert and a Download Card … the full package!
You can order the record here, I also put up a pretty cool package deal which gets you the new LP plus all three 7"s for $20 plus shipping:
DEEP SLEEP "Turn Me Off" LP PREORDER
The band will also have copies at the COKE BUST record release show in DC tonight with Direct Control, Rations, and Vaccine. Info on that can be found HERE
Ok ... here is the fine print so please read carefully. The bad news is that yes, this is a "preorder" meaning you will have to wait a couple of weeks to get your grubby little mitts on it. The GOOD news is that this bad boy is finished and I have 1000 copies sitting in my apartment as I type this. As timing would have it, I'll be headed out on tour next week with GOVERNMENT WARNING and NIGHT BIRDS (I might have some copies with me) so I will not have time to get the orders packed up. Hence the "preorder" status here ... but rest assured I am not waiting on anything from the plant or the printer, these things are ready to roll.
Orders will begin shipping the week of Feb 21st. Anyone who has ordered from me before knows that I try my hardest to get everything out in a timely manner, but please be patient as I generally have a decent amount of orders around a new release. If you have any questions you can email me at email@example.com ... now ORDER AWAY!!!
Also I would like to add that our good friends at TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS in Germany will be doing a separate EUROPEAN PRESSING as well ... of course all of my European friends are more than welcome to order the US version from me, but if it's easier for you (or if you are a completest) than please feel free to order from them (their version has special silk screened covers ... fancy!):
TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS
That's all for now, but I'll have more new release news in the upcoming weeks as the COKE BUST "Degradation" 7", THE SHIRKS "Cry Cry Cry" 7", BAD ADVICE "Do Not Resuscitate" 7", and GOVERNMENT WARNING "No Moderation" LP are all very very close to completion and will be available for order soon. For now, please check out the DEEP SLEEP LP and the BRAIN F≠ "So Dim" 7" (which has been getting some AWESOME reviews and I'm almost completely out of the first press)!!!
Any distros, stores, labels, etc etc etc looking for wholesale information or trades please feel free to hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org because I want to get these records into as many hands as possible!!!
Thanks for reading, stay tuned because there are plenty more updates around the corner!!!
