Wolves At The Door!

*click on the little black arrow on the right side of the music player to download the MP3.

It’s clear now that “trickle down” is actually “vacuum up” and yet working class people continue to vote against their own economic interests. Wake up! Anyone whose primary vocation is “making money” is a predator: they may wrestle around with you for a while but eventually they’re gonna go with their instincts and kill and eat you. – David Bazan

Wolves wait at your door
for your permission
slyly you invite them
on one condition
that they prepare a feast
from your provisions
of root and wild beast
for you to eat
surprise
they took your money
and they ate your kids
and they had their way
with your wife a lil bit
while you wept on the porch
with your head in your hands
cursing taxes and the government
cause you’re a goddamn fool
and i love you
yeah i love you
look into your eyes
your former glory
bright and open wide
like easter morning
how the light has dimmed
and how the fear of everything
is creeping in

I Helped Bazan Make A Record!

The sales period has ended.

The shirts and discount coupons will be shipped this week and next week. We’ll let you know as soon as we have news on the album release date and when the CDs and LPs will be shipping to you in 2011.

Thanks for your support!

David is making a new album right now! The songs are all there, recording is underway! We are shooting for a Spring 2011 release. Barsuk gave him dough to pay for dudes to play on the record and some gear upgrades to make it sound great. But in order to focus his full attention on recording (so he doesn’t take three years like he did with “Curse Your Branches”) we need to keep him at home as much as possible until he’s finished recording the album. That’s a little tricky because a significant part of his income comes from touring.

So we came up with a plan to raise funds for anyone who wants to help out. Here’s the deal:

Shirt + CD + Liner Notes Package: $35

1. Limited Edition “I Helped Bazan Make A Record” T-shirt.
2. A pre-order of Bazan’s “Strange Negotiations” CD (delivery date TBA)
3. Your name in the liner notes of  “Strange Negotiations”.
4. $5 coupon good towards purchase of Bazan merchandise at any show.

SOLD OUT

=========================================

Shirt + LP + Liner Notes Package: $40

1. Limited Edition “I Helped Bazan Make A Record” T-shirt.
2. A pre-order of Bazan’s “Strange Negotiations” Vinyl LP (delivery date TBA)
3. Your name in the liner notes of  “Strange Negotiations”.
4. $5 coupon good towards purchase of Bazan merchandise at any show.

SOLD OUT

=========================================

This is a limited time offer. We’ll take orders until December 1.
There will be no re-prints of the shirts after the sales period ends.
Shirts and discount coupons will ship on December 10.
(guaranteed delivery for Christmas!)
We don’t know exactly when the album will be released. But we’ll let you know as soon as we figure out the release date and ship it to arrive on or before that date.

Or if you prefer to donate a few bucks you can do so by clicking the button below.


100% of sales and donations will go directly towards the recording costs of “Strange Negotiations.”

Thanks for your support and help. We really appreciate it.
