  • Streaming + Download

    Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    Download includes 6 page PDF lyric sheet... for those who like words and such. Also, sadly, the computers said our titles were "too fucking long" (their words, not ours), so it might cause an error when you extract the files after you down load them.

Sorry, but we aren't shortening our titles to appease the electronic overlords.
