    Die ersten 60 gepressten Platten unseres neuen Albums "The Shame Song". 180g, schweres Vinyl. Handnummeriert (als 1/60, 2/60 usw.), signiert und direkt von uns an euch verschickt.
    Leider sieht es momentan finanziell alles andere als rosig aus, weshalb wir die Platten erst produzieren können, sobald die Produktionskosten wenigstens teilweise drin sind. Sobald wir ein paar LPs vorverkauft haben, geht die Platte in die Produktion. Auf jeden Fall kriegt ihr einen Tag vor Release den digitalen Download des Albums in der höchstmöglichen Qualität, selbst wenn sich die LP um ein oder zwei Monate verzögern könnte.

    These are the first 60 copies of our limited edition vinyl. Heavy weight 180g vinyl. They are numbered (1/60; 2/60 and so on), signed and sent by us.
    The problem is that we only can beginn pressing the record once we have recovered at least part of the production cost as we are in tough spot financially right now.
    The moment the money is in we'll go into production. You will, however, get our album as the highest possible digital file one day before release even if the LP may arrive one day later.

    Includes digital pre-order of The Shame Song. You get 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it's released.

    Die Standard Edition unseres neuen Albums "The Shame Song". 180g, schweres Vinyl.
    Auch streng limitiert, aber nicht handnummeriert und signiert, deshalb ein bisschen günstiger.
    Leider sieht es momentan finanziell alles andere als rosig aus, weshalb wir die Platten erst produzieren können, sobald die Produktionskosten wenigstens teilweise drin sind.

    Standard 12" vinyl version of our newest album "The Shame Song". Heavy weight vinyl with artwork by our very own Julie.
    This, too, is a limited edition but not hand-numbered and signed, thus slightly cheaper than the Strictly limited edition.
    Unfortunately we cannot afford the vinyl production cost right now as we are in a tough spot financially. However, the records will go into production once we can afford it. And: you will receive a high quality download of the album one day before release.

Track Name: (A Tin Can) Odyssey
Thrown in a pool of sharks, I know that they can smell the blood. Once my weakness shows they gather around to tear me apart as poisoned ink is dripping from their teeth onto the sheet that I'm hiding underneath in a deserted hotel room.
But once the clouds move aside
We can see what hid behind
Those tiny diamond holes ripped into the sky
"Those stars we see above", you say, "died centuries ago.
So all we ever did was stare at ghosts
And wasting our time
Making love and wasting time"

(What a shame, what a shame,
They only know my father's name)

Inside of a tin can in the middle of the sea,
With nothing but the seagulls and the sharks surrounding me
I felt slowly I was sinking as a voice was rising from beneath,
Saying: "Everything will be easy if you give yourself to me"
Now I've been sitting here for days,
Chasing words across the page
And I keep staring out windows but I only see the frame
I'm twenty-five years old,
I've gotta do something with my life
Instead I keep dreaming of all the different ways to die
And I'm wasting my time
Making excuses and wasting time

Well, I guess I need a purpose, some sort of fading hologram
I can chase around the city and spend my whole life trying to touch,
But it's getting harder, 'cause I never stay long enough at the same place
With the same faces
Another city I can't name
Another feeling I can't tame
I'm just desperate to find the right way home
But once the clouds move aside
We can see what hid behind:
Just a blank blue space but it's such a comfort to know
That we are just wasting our time
Waiting around and wasting time
All we ever did was wasting our time

What... A... Shame!
Lalalalalala
