Covered in dirt and stones we slumbered away the trials of 2013 emerging to complete our first full length studio album since 2010. In true, time honored tradition every possible obstacle and tribulation rose to meet us. It has seemed even the elements of nature themselves turned their weight to encumber our progress. And we, being the Pretzelmen we are, refuse to be stopped.
Here’s the deal:
We are coming to your town this fall or next spring. We are going EVERYWHERE and we are finishing this record and playing the old songs the new songs and whatever weirdness we can wrap our heads around. But we need some help. To lurch this tour war machine to life and close the gaps getting this record done we need the pretzel army in full force.
TELL EVERYONE ABOUT US!
DEMAND YOUR LOCAL VENUES BRING US TO YOU!
PROMOTE OUR SHOWS WITH US!
BUY SOME STUFF FROM US!
There’ll be a link for our new EP “Theme Music for the End of TImes” coming soon! And we’ll be offering pre sales for the new full length too. And if you want to donate a little or a lot to just help us get moving we’ll take it. And we’ll offer you some sweet perks for joining the cause too.
STAY TUNED AND BANG YOUR DRUMS (or some trash that sounds sort of like drums…. that’s what we do.)
It is with great frustration and some sadness, that we are rescheduling our June 2014 tour. For a variety of circumstances that were all out of our control, we are unable to make it to see all of you wonderful crazy so and so’s that make it such a joy to endeavor on this bizarre journey called rock and roll.
Our plans for the next full length record are under way, and it looks like we’ll be able to hit the road again in fall, with a banging new set of songs to scream and pound at you. In the meantime, the best thing you can do to help us is tell EVERYONE about us. Buy some of our online merch if you can, tell venues, promoters, local radio and festivals you want to see us. Tweet them, facebook them, email them, nail dead animals to their garage doors (don’t do that.) But seriously, if you want us, demand us! You’d be surprised how much impact it can have.
Stay tuned, and we’ll be in your neighborhood as soon as we can.
We at Peculiar HQ have become aware that absolutely no one has received any of the CURIOUS COMPENDIUM orders we shipped out. We sent them to our distributor in two groups and apparently every single item vanished. Bermuda triangle style. Or at least that’s the most legitimate explanation we’ve heard so far. Which is, let’s admit, completely fucking nuts.
The project was meant to be extremely limited so we only made so many and about 20 have walked out of existence. So we have sent out (personally… no distributors were involved this time to hopefully sidestep any more ….. incidents) new orders to reach all the patient and wonderful people who have ordered them so far. A limited edition of “ghost” tins will be produced to match our initial offer of 100 copies, but for now, we still have quite a few ready to go, and presumably there will be no further interruptions.
To all you who ordered and have been patiently waiting, we offer our sincerest apologies, and are sending a gang of treats along with your new orders, and to you who have been on the sidelines, come and get it. They won’t last long.
Thank you so much,
CURIOUS COMPENDIUM the collected works of The Peculiar Pretzelmen 2006-2013.
7 years of mayhem and we’ve come to this. Hours and hours of music, a collector’s box with trading cards, booklet, stickers, and oh yeah did I mention HOURS AND HOURS OF MUSIC. Everything that’s ever been released, along with everything we could dig up that hasn’t been released or had a very limited release. HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS. We’re not even sure how much music is on there yet, because we keep finding more material to add to it.
200 boxes are available dec 23.
25 pre-orders available Nov 20.
5 at 9am, 5 at 12pm, 5 at 3pm, 5 at 6pm, 5 at 9pm. (Pacific Standard)
Pre-orders ship in a variant package and are going for the early bird price of $100.
