So here is the deal, on Thursday July 2nd we will premiere the first new song since 2009. On that same day the 'pre-orders' will go live for the new 2 song 7 inch (both digital and a select number of physical vinyl copies). On July 10th the release will be available worldwide digitally in all of the usual channels. The actual vinyl is estimated to be released late summer/fall — hard to say with pressing plant backups… but you will have the digital version to listen to in the meantime. And if you can't get your hands on one, again, it will be available through all of the usual digital channels. Once we have the actual records back from the plant we will release the remaining vinyl for sale. The rest of the material is currently being worked on.
