• Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This CD version of Stand Out/Fit In comes in a beautiful cardboard softpak, with further artwork from the Esplanade Hotel photo shoot and all lyrics in the inside sleeve.

    Compact Discs are worthy of your investment and love. They are a musical friend for life. Not like a digital file, which will leave your hard drive at the drop of a hat, or click.

    That said, you still get a free digital download of the album when you buy this CD. So have it your way, or no way at all, FREAKS!

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Okay this is extra special, because our 2007 album "Stand Out/Fit In" is getting the full treatment: we've gone back to the original mixes and done some tweaks, we've reworked the artwork for the vinyl package, and for the first time we're including the rare B-side "You Will Know What's Right" as a bonus track.

    It's so freaking exciting, because this was really our first "professional" release, and we've learned so much since then - and have the people we worked with - it's going to be remarkable to revisit what many consider our best work.

    We have to sell at least 50 before we can go on with manufacturing because it's damn expensive.
