We’ve been working hard on trying to make this pre-order something special, as it will be the last 65daysofstatic release from the Exploding project before we embark on something new. We’re really proud of these tracks – any of them could have been on the album – so we really wanted to release them, and to make a release that wasn’t just a rip-off for our fans, but something worth owning.
The e.p is released 25th October on Hassle Records. If you pre-order the physical copy of the e.p, you will get a digital download on the 25th October whilst the e.p is shipped out to you. Also, when you place your order there will be an IMMEDIATE download of two totally exclusive tracks that you can’t get anywhere else. These are ‘Wrong Shape (Alternative Version)’ and ‘Come to Me (Wordless Version)’.
There is also a limited edition artwork print that comes with most of the e.p bundles, and a brand new, exclusive tshirt, designed by the wonderful Version Industries (who have done all the artwork for this Exploding project) that you can add to your order if you want. On top of this, if you are still missing the vinyl of our album, or the previous 7inch singles, we have managed to create some great deluxe bundles where you can get some really good discounts.
Again – we’re 65daysofstatic and quite amateurish at capitalism, so we aren’t doing this to try and rip anybody off. We’re doing this because we figure that the best way a band can face this future of torrents and downloading is not to get angry with the people who take our music for free, but to instead focus our efforts on making actual, physical things that people will hopefully want to own.
This is what we’re trying to make happen with the new E.P.
So – if you’re interested, you can find the full details over at the PRE-ORDER PAGE. There’s even more than we’ve mentioned here, like badges and sticker packs, posters, video downloads and digital downloads of the previously vinyl-only b-sides… Very comprehensive. Some of it is limited in quantity, so get involved sooner rather than later.
All that remains to say now is that we are only three weeks away from the November Heavy Sky Euro/UK tour. We’ll be using these weeks to prepare some of these new tracks so we can slot them into our sets. At various stages along the road we’ll be joined by Nedry, Kong, Civil Civic and Tall Ships, all of whom are blindingly good.
