First, as a special commemoration of the February tour and the re-release of the vinyl on Sub Pop we’ve put together a super limited edition Box Set called “Feather Bed Whiskey Blanket.” The three studio albums, The Murder City Devils, Empty Bottles Broken Hearts, In Name and Blood and the Thelema EP all will all be pressed on pristine 12″ white vinyl in a limited quantity of 275 sets that will be for sale exclusively on this tour. Unlike the black and white marbled represses, the white vinyl is only available in the box set.
Bundled in a custom made package with a button and string closure, each set will be hand-numbered and contain one of a kind photos, stencils, posters and other pieces unique to each set. Who knows, you might end up with rare promo photos, press stickers, outtake / live photos, studio notes, sketches, old set lists, old backstage passes, Gabe’s electric bill … anything from the massive MCD archives that can fit into a flat 12″ box. Each package will have the four 12″ records on exclusive white vinyl, a totally unique set of bonus items, be hand-numbered and shrink wrapped air tight so nobody but nobody will know what’s in there until you get it home and open it up. (We’ll know, and we’ll be keeping track.)
The second announcement is, because there are so few of these sets to go around, and we’re only going down the west coast on this tour, we wanted to give everyone who can’t make it to the shows a shot at getting one one of these. So we’re hosting an international contest here on the website where the grand prize is a Feather Bed Whiskey Blanket box set, a limited edition silk screened tour poster, and a t-shirt of the new design for this tour.
Other prizes will be two complete sets of the four 12″ black and white marbled vinyl editions of The Murder City Devils, Empty Bottles Broken Hearts, In Name and Blood , and Thelema, and a few t-shirt and poster packages.
