EVELYN EVELYN PRE-ORDER PRE-ORDER!

HOLA COMRADES!!!

this is a blog-version of the email that went out a few days ago to launch the Evelyn Evelyn pre-order!
once again, if your’e not ON the email list – sign up here. it’s my mainline to you…and the only way to get first crack at concert tickets, etc.

i’m working on a blog regarding all the craziness that’s been happening in oz. i feel like i live a whole fucking lifetime every 3 days and i only get around to blogging every 6 days and i can’t handle the overload of images and thoughts. mostly, i’m turning to  twitter as a constant brain-dump.

eenyway…..this is IT! our little record is ALMOST OUT!!!!
and this time, we own the rights to sell it ourselves, which is a cause for great celebration.

there is a plethora of options for you!
before you read on, please take a moment to press “play” and enjoy some music by evelyn evelyn, as you read on:

COMRADES! (and curious bystanders!):

we are proud to announce the OFFICIAL LAUNCH of THE LONG-AWAITED DEBUT ALBUM BY CONJOINED TWIN SISTERS, EVELYN & EVELYN (as well as their BRAND NEW HOT OFF THE PRESSES WEBSITE)!!!! for the past three years, jason and i have been working – on and off – on this collection of stories and songs by and about the “evelyn” twins. CO-PRODUCED BY/FEATURING JASON WEBLEY AND I, THE ALBUM IS FULL OF SAD, HAPPY, AND CLEVER SONGS OF ALL SORTS, and it’s READY FOR YOU TO HEAR!!! it’s set to come out march 30th in the US (april 5th many other places around the world), and below you’ll find pre-order options galore. these pre-orders are set to end april 6th at midnight EST. we’ve tried to make things as fun and interesting as possible, all the while ensuring that there’s something for everybody. Please be sure to take your time choosing the right package for you, and hit us up with any questions you may have…then you can go HERE right away and place your order.

you guys often ask me WHAT is the best way to purchase music: THIS is the best way to do it – this will ship directly from us and will not go through some faceless third-party distribution company (therefore leaving the greatest amount of profit for the artist). people have voiced concerns because of the problems we had with the WKAP pre-order, and we all totally understand and want to quell those fears: we are working with a totally different system this time around (including my long-time merch peeps at JSR and miss beth of all trades), and it’s pretty watertight. IF you have any questions about this ordering process, feel free to mention it here and someone from team chaos will get back to you ASAP.

and if you just HATE mail-order completely or don’t have a credit card/checkbook/paypal, the album WILL be released in STORES in the states and canada on march 30th, and april 5th in most of europe, and oz. it’ll also be available WORLDWIDE on the EE bandcamp (soon), and your favorite digital retailers on the 30th/5th. we’ll try to send you guys another mailer telling you exactly where you can trundle off to a bricks-and-mortar establishment and pick up a copy of this fine album, but for now this is THE way to go (especially with the fancy extras).

to thank you for supporting us: we will randomly choose one lucky pre-orderer for a free upgrade to the “Benefactor Bundle” (valued at $1,111)! eleven others will be chosen to receive copies of the original sold-out Evelyn Evelyn 7” vinyl single, (released in 2007 in a limited edition of 1,111 – these have been known to sell on eBay for more than $100.) we’re also giving away a single copy of the 7” and some other fun stuff to one lucky person who RSVPs to the album release event, HERE on facebook. all winners will be chosen by April 6th at midnight EST, and announced within 48 hours on the shadowbox.
oh, and PS…ALL pre-orders will get a digital download code for the album from our friends at bandcamp (sometime BEFORE March 30th.) additionally, packages will ship around the 23rd, and should be in your hands well before the record hits stores (though foreign orders may take longer to arrive.)
