It’s finally happened. The moment we have all been waiting for. Our dear, talented friends from Circle Takes the Square have released Decompositions: Volume Number One digitally, and now it’s time to get your pre-orders in for physical copies…and so much more.
For those of you who don’t remember Vinyl Mag’s first interview ever, Decompositions: Volume Number One was recorded/mixed/mastered by Anthony Stubelek at Rockstudio in Brunswick, Ga. and released through the band’s own label, Gatepost Recordings.
Now back to the pre-orders. Dudes. We need to talk.
Let’s start with the “Bug-Out Bag” Survival Kit. I can honestly and sincerely say that I have never seen a cooler package put together by a band. It’s golden. For $115, you get a custom CTTS:
- Survival kit with “high-quality Military/UN approved items”
- Flashlight engraved with the lyrics “Illuminate the Way”
- Water bottle
- T-shirt (illustration by CTTS’s own Drew Speziale) *remember to enter your size manually
- Decompositions: Volume Number One vinyl and CD
- Two buttons
- Tote bag
Seriously? This thing is unbelievable. If the world does end (like if those silly Mayans got their dates mixed up), you’ll be totally set, and you’ll have a damn killer album to carry you through the apocalypse.
“We were considering the prospects of the bundles,” said Kathleen Stubelek of CTTS. “The idea came from wanting to put together something that pertained to the album, yet was also full of items that people could actually use…not just merch for merch’s sake. So it’s basically a companion to the apocalypse. You have a survival kit, the nicest one we could find. You have a little flashlight, a water bottle, and you have the perfect soundtrack for watching your surroundings crumble around you! It’s completely self indulgent, but it was a lot of fun to put together.”
So there you go. Completely brilliant.
Other pre-order packages are available if you want to take your chances.
So get all up on it, and enjoy!
