Get the digital download of the Casualties Of Cool album PLUS all the exclusive updates and behind the scenes content leading up to the release!
This option is a downloadable one. I hope people check this one out as well, even though it doesn’t have the actual physical album, because I actually really want folks to hear this record…and you get both.
OK, so here’s the CD option. I wanted this album to play a bit like a movie…without a dialogue or anything too blatant. Travis Smith did the art, and I’m really happy with the vibe of it. This is just the standard single CD and it’ll come in a jewel case with a 12 page booklet.
I always tend to write a ton of material for an album…why? Well I don’t do it in a way to cheapen the final product, but more I experiment with sounds and riffs to see if missing holes in the experience can be filled in a variety of ways. Sometimes people think the best stuff ends up on the bonus tracks and question why it didn’t make the ‘main album’ and the reason is always that I’m after the feeling of a record more-so than a certain song. That being said, the digipak is another 12 songs that together make a very numbing, cool vibe. Some songs here are among my favourites on the album and I hope they don’t get overlooked. This version comes in a 3 panel digipak with extended CD artwork..more pages.
I’m getting some posters made for Casualties… It’s a good quality one.
A very special limited edition Casualties Of Cool t-shirt, only available via Pledge. We tried to make them ‘wearable’ as opposed to just advertisements.
This is a 1 gig USB stick that includes some bonus songs that didn’t make either of the full albums, as well as some bonus information and reading for you…plus, you can just copy those tracks and nuke it, then hey! …USB stick! The theme of the record includes a planet of bones, so we made a USB that was bone shaped…bone-us! =)
The official Casualties Of Cool lyric book, done by Travis Smith, that includes artwork, pictures and YOUR NAME in the credits!
Note that this will be printed AFTER the campaign ends and thus will be shipped a few weeks later than the rest of the items.
So sometimes when we’re touring, people ask me to do answering voice mails, so when people call you, they get me instead =) or a ringtone even…basically, give me your name and a short description of what you’d like and I’ll record myself doing a mailbox greeting for you and then send you the file.
So here’s where it gets a little different from the normal, everyday ‘music product’ trip… I really want to make this special for folks and maybe if you have someone with a birthday coming up, if you want to send us their names, I can sing a birthday song for them and send you a file of it? Could be fun maybe =)
I called my buddy at D’Addario and asked if they would be able to produce some Casualties Of Cool guitar straps for me… and they are nice. Brown leather with the logo printed on them. I will use them for Casualties shows myself. The straps are Planet Waves and good quality.
Basically, some people ask me to name their animal for them…if you send me a picture of your little pal, I’ll think of a name and draw a picture of him for you. Feel free to not use the name, but you’ll have a weird drawing to remember the ill-fated name nonetheless!
JAYS is a Swedish manufacturer of high-end headphones and turns out that they’re big fans of anything Devin does. They’ve kindly donated 20 sets of headphones from their v-JAYS range to help us raise some more funds for Ziltoid’s plans for World domination. Normal retail price is around $69.99 USD so here’s your chance to get these cheap! More information found here: www.jays.se/products/v-jays
Theres lots of folks who love vinyl…I was never one until I heard a Daft Punk album on vinyl and realized theres a really cool vibe from it…however, most things aren’t recorded with Vinyl in mind. We went out of our way to make sure the dynamic range would be good for vinyl. The album was specifically remastered FOR vinyl, and it includes different artwork, speck to Vinyl as well as being a double disc (its only the main Casualties disk we could do…but even that is 72 minutes long, so it’s a whopper of a project)
Note that the inside booklet will be signed, not the sleeve itself.
These are more collector oriented prints of the album front cover, classy and bigger.
So for this option, I’ll hand write lyrics for you. I’ve got 25 records out there, so if there’s lyrics to a song that you maybe like, send me the song title and your name and I’m happy to write them out and sign it. Do me a favour and pick the ones that aren’t novels =) (though I will do any one you’d like)
While I’m recording, I keep notepads all over the place…in the studios, in my bag, in my car, carry on luggage etc… the notes on them are all things that I’ve written down during the mixing, writing and lyric phases. I have a whole bunch of those papers and I can put together a few pages for each person. I know it may seem like it’s ‘just paper’ but I’ve always kept them as it reminds me of a certain period. Sentimental like that I guess…
Someone online (Mark Gibson) did a really cool picture of me with charcoal and sent it to us….The YouTube video is online, and I’m happy that with his permission, I’m able to sign it and dedicate it to someone.

You and a friend can come to sound check, the show, meet Devin and receive some nice goodies.
Note: There will only be a very select number of Casualties of Cool gigs so this Pledge will also apply to any other club show (DTP, Ziltoid, acoustic, etc) that Devin might play around the world.
In trying to figure out products that are personal, I went through all sorts of junk at the rehearsal space and quickly began to realize that using a Pledge campaign as a way to get rid of clutter seems a bit weird, so I though a more personal thing would be to do a hand drawn picture…so basically, if you send us your request (nothing distasteful please) I could make a cool picture…or funny, and then sign it and send it to you. I’m cool with weird things or silly stuff, but no racist, sexist, homophobic stuff…etc
The original white label test pressings of the album.
So we’re working on making a nice package that is exclusive to the Casualties Of Cool record…it will be limited and there are no plans to reproduce it in the future. I cant give you specifics yet as we’re still working out the goodies, but it will be a really cool thing.
Includes the digital download of the album.
I was hesitant to do this, but again…its a way to make this more personal. I will do 10 half hour Skype guitar lessons. Half hour each… basically, I’m happy to answer whatever questions you may have…I’m certainly not the best guitarist in the world, but I have a few tricks I could show you perhaps?
Same as above. I taught myself how to sing, so theres a good chance my ‘techniques’ are just working for me…but whatever I can do to help, I will definitely try!
This guitar is my personal production model of the signature Peavey DT model that I’ve been playing for 4 years. I only recieved one of the production models, and this is it. Its a very special guitar to me and means a good amout to me. It’s a baritone 7 string Flying V with a mahogany body, and a maple cap. EMG pickups, Sperzel locking tuners and a custom DTP inlay on the 12th fret. It comes in a groovy coffin case and is just a beast of a guitar.
Note: this is not the exact same guitar as seen in the picture. We’ll upload a correct one soon.
