That’s one nice thing about pre-ordering, but not the only nice thing. Dive into this store for exclusive looks at signed vinyl, a Pledge-only t-shirt, and some truly sick sh--: a personalized song, a fruit leather jacket, handwritten lyrics to any song from our catalog? All here.

And every purchase includes the “Access Pass,” which gives you entrée to exclusive updates from us starting this week and running through the release of the record, plus special online streamed video content like acoustic jams, how-to’s, Q&A’s featuring beer drinking, and other stuff we haven’t thought up yet.

If you’re trapped somewhere, like a pit or a trunk or ravine, and you’re offered just one music format as a means of escape, we certainly hope you opt for a CD.

Indestructible for digging, reflective for signaling to aircraft that fly overhead, CDs were invented by the American Army nearly a century ago as a standalone multitool soldiers could bring into demanding terrain. Then, at an undersea laboratory whose remit was making peace with squids, a rogue researcher discovered that these immensely practical circles could STORE INFORMATION. Information such as, he soon learned,… music. That researcher’s name has been lost to history. But what he changed his name to — Rick Rubin — is known to most anyone with an interest in cutting edge music or day robes.

The “Keith” T-Shirt

 The “Keith” T-Shirt

Ripped straight from the “Your Light Has Changed” video and single artwork, the iconic dog dressed as Keith Murray makes a massive statement to anyone who catches you in this fine garment. It says, “I like dogs, but I think they should be a little more like people, at least visually.” It also says, “I think dogs should have human names like ‘Keith’ and ‘Stephanie,’ not degrading names like ‘Spot’ or ‘Princess Beautiful.’”

Speaking of beautiful, who’s this hunk modeling the shirt? Oh, that’s our friend Tyler. Don’t worry about him.

This is a black print on a light blue tee. Simple and timeless.

The gorgeous design that adorns Megaplex’s cover can now be paraded around on your chest. Modeled here by our nordic buddy Klas, but looks great on less burly fashionistas, too.

Many, many colors on an off-white shirt.

Megaplex Signed Test Pressing

Megaplex Signed Test Pressing

All gone!

When you have a vinyl record made, several things can go wrong. The coagulate can become unstable and start to separate. The data guidance for the lathe can get corrupted by a sun spot. Jack White can make your factory an offer they simply can’t refuse, purchasing all their equipment, and your album master can be thrown into the river, or a ravine.

Test pressings are sent from the factory to the artist so that we can make sure everything sounds juuuust right. And boy, do our things sound right (and also just). These were the actual test pressings made to validate Megaplex in its infant stage. Doctors pronounced it a living, breathing baby, at the peak of its health, with an incredible adult man’s voice and marvelous shred-skills.

Limited to 5. That’s all the factory made.

Masterswan Grab Bag

Masterswan Grab Bag
$25

All gone!

Prophecy told of a raven so swift, and so craven, that no marble was safe, no ball bearing; no glimmering ring, no decorative chain; nor fine silk shawl or pane of colored glass.

“Holy shit! They’re talking about Masterswan!” we thought, the first time we read that. “Except he gets a lot of tinsel and magnets, too. And babies’ eyes.”

It’s true — and a horrible truth — that Masterswan, our trained pet raven, has retrieved the odd baby’s eye. But only once every hundred marbles. It’s honestly very rare.

Purchase of this item entitles you to 24 hours of Masterswan’s loot. May include sticks, foil, Cheetos, shards of glass, and… human organic matter.

Limited at 20. Masterswan is not as active as he used to be. Signed for authentication.

We write you a song. That’s what this one is. No real rules. If you acquire this item, we’ll hop on the email with you and figure out what sort of thing you’re after. We’re able songwriters. If you want us to write about you, no problem — you can give us your name and tell us about some things that distinguish you, or a sordid episode that scarred you, or a very dope moment when you won the day. The content of the song is pretty flexible, because as songwriters, our skills are diverse and durable. #bumblebrag

Some practicalities: We’re not going to put quite as much care into the recording of this song as we would if we were making it for an album (i.e., making it for the whole world). It will sound pretty sweet, though. And it’s not going to be some doofus with an acoustic guitar (unless that’s what you’re after). We will bring an armada of drums, synthesizers, strings, bells, whistles, and e-guitars (as appropriate) — many of them perhaps digital, but TASTEFUL as hell! — to bear on your artistic challenge.

Your song will be delivered in the digital format of your choice (or CD-ROM), with some artwork that we make for you to put into iTunes or whatever you listen to music on. We get to come up with the title, although you can have input. We’re not going to put it on our Spotify page, but if you want to put it on yours, you totally can. Just, you know, put us in the title as a “feat.” or something.

Fruit Leather Jacket

All gone!

A jacket made of fruit leather? Yep. We worked with a close friend — a member of the NYC avant-fashion scene whose name we can’t use lest he be fired by the French luxury fashion house that employs him — to develop this little sweetie.

If you’ve ever wanted the absolute cool that only leather seemed able to offer, but you didn’t want to push your conscience down the bacon-greased express slide to hell, you should check out fruit leather. Made from 100% dried fruit, and mild chemicals, our fruit leather smells good, is not that sticky, and wears extremely well. It is flattering, forgiving, and not just to your figure — also to your soul. #killsomefruit

In the distant future, physical matter as we currently know it will be but a memory — a carefully recorded memory! The entire universe will be an infinitely dense substrate of electrons, up-quarks and down-quarks, organized with maximum complexity! All will be consciousness, and nothing will exist outside it! Death will be a metaphysical state that no longer holds meaning, and the only project will be to increase the degree of abstraction of the contemplation shared by all!

But even then, you’ll still be able to play these babies.

Available on MP3 or FLAC.

Cassettes were, at one time, totally the shit. Everybody had one. Rich kids sometimes had ten floating around the back seat of their car. Patrick Bateman, a successful investment banker in the movie “American Psycho,” appears to have dozens of cassettes in his apartment, and then he aims his chainsaw down that stairwell.

But the format died. Cast en masse into landfills and oceans, ancient cassettes formed room-temp glacial caps on 16% of the planet’s surface. We threw away our Walkmen (Walkmans??). We dropped our boom boxes off bridges, and tape shops in malls the world over placed staggering orders for CDs, replacing entire musical libraries overnight. And now that we’ve all gotten rid of all our paid-for tape crap… they’re back. The fucking hipsters realized these things were cool. It’s the only musical format with moving parts!

It’s true, they are cool. And now you can buy tape players again, and it’s like the French say, Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose — “red is the most attractive color for a cassette tape.”

Blasting from a point on the horizon that could, for all you know, be a TRILLION LIGHT YEARS AWAY, comes the logo for We Are Scientists. Rendered in retro-hip “low-fi” line, just as it appears on the back of Megaplex, and cast against the same black fabric the night sky is made of. Another low-key, coal-hot piece of the W.A.S. story from New Zealand designer Dylan Haley, working on his third album cycle with us.

Limited edition. Available exclusively through this PledgeMusic sale and in sizes S-XXL
