    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    An ill considered christmas double LP

    The vinyl was meant to go on sale last friday. We are putting it on sale today as a pre-order.
    What is happening: Side A&B have been pressed however the stamper for side C&D broke after 13 records of side C&D were pressed. A new stamper is being done either later on today or tomorrow. The stamper will go straight to the pressing plant and the records will be manufactured within the days to come. To be as transparent as we can be we are trying to get this record in the mail before the 14th so it can reach you by christmas, at this stage it's fingers crossed. Hopefully it will be in time to be under the christmas tree, regardless we will deliver wether it is before or after xmas.

    That being said we are all extremely grateful of your support and patience.

    All the best and merry crimbo everyone!

    500 copies available only.

Dark, melancholy, aggressive, raging and subdued; “An Ill Considered Christmas” captures these essential festive feelings, weaving thorny, angular, unforgiving structures and stretching the helpless, protesting forms of infamous Christmas songs over them, creating a unique collection of Yuletide Chimeras. Recorded live in a day, with each musician extremely close to each other in the room, you can really feel the intensity of communication between them and the cohesive sound this proximity elicits. We hope this albums helps you have an appropriately Ill Considered Christmas.
