Give them Rope 2X

We could not be happier with the way No Sleep and Relapse have handled Give Them Rope for us.  This record has always been special to us and it’s always been a bummer to see it go out of press so quickly and stay that way.  Not anymore though. The cd contains 2 cd’s, one of the 1996 and one of the 2003 mix.  The lp contains 2 slabs of vinyl of the same thing.  Liner notes by Jes, reworked layout to update the original, it just has everything you would want out of this release.

You can purchase the CD Here.
You can purchase the LP Here.

But between you and us, going to your local record store is always the most fun. This was just recently released on November 22nd.

OXEP Preorder up now! Preview song up now!


Hey guys, just a quick note that OXEP comes out Nov 10, and we have a rad preorder package put together for you.  We are doing a classic brand name zippo, a Dakota pocket knife, and a really nice OX zip hoodie by Micah Smith.  CLICK HERE FOR THE PREORDER.

The Zippo is a name brand quality lighter, and we’ve done it in a classic silver worn look.  The OX icon is engraved in the face in a classic set up.  As an added bonus, we are making some chase lighters in black matte and gold.  Only 1 of each is being made, and random customers will get them unless specified that they do NOT want a one of a kind lighter.  All lighters are being made to order.  If we only sell 1, then only 1 of these will exist.

The Dakota pocket knife was chosen as a useful work tool.  Sean from Coalesce searched for hours looking for the best quality knife, with the best features.  Having the blade black is a huge bonus.  The Ox icon is engraved on both sides of the blade.  This too is being made to order.  No chase colors on the knife.

We haven’t had a new hoodie in a long time.  We are super excited to see Micah Smiths Ox poster design used in such an appealing way.  We decided to go with american apparel on this item, and it again is being made to order.

Please note that we split the preorder items from the actual ep.  Everything is sold separately.  So if you download a leak from wherever, you can still support the band and get something unique and useful.

We have approved the test presses for the 12″ vinyl, and they should be on time as well.  We will have our copies of the vinyl up for preorder in all colors as soon as we can go through the boxes and know exactly what we have.

You can go over to our myspace page and check out a track from OXEP right now.  CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW A NEW OXEP TRACK.  We chose “Through Sparrows I rest” as the first track for you to check out.  A little note on the song, that’s not a missle at the end, that’s Sean’s 12 year old daughter backing her dad on vocals. We believe the entire OXEP will be available for streaming on soon enough.

Thanks so much for your continued support of this band and our art.

51l3ab6y1fl_ss500_.jpgHey folks, we just returned from a whirlwind week thanks to the generosity of the kind folks at Scion Motors and Beyond Marketing.  A seriously heart felt thanks to everyone involved, and everyone who took time out of their evening to come out and see us and the incredible CAVE IN play.

Next month is when OXEP comes out on Relapse Records, and we figured we would give you a little more information about this release, since we’ve seen a lot of confusion and inaccurate descriptions as to what exactly this is.

OXEP (not “ox” ep) is 5 new original coalesce songs.  There are 7 tracks, but 1 and 7 are a percussive intro and outro.  These songs are not cuts that didn’t make ox.  We wrote and recorded these songs specifically for an ep release after ox was already done and delivered to Relapse for production.  We continued our americana theme and expanded them on these songs, therefore wanted them to be considered part of the 2009 ox sessions.

Don Clark returned for the layout and design of OXEP with a pared down presentation as final price was of a major concern.  The CD version will sell for $8.00 and the LP pricing will be announced once projections are back in.  LP version will be gatefold again, with multiple colors of vinyl for collectors.  Relapse is running a preorder right now, and we will have ours up shortly with more unique premiums like a zippo, and pocket knife.

Thanks again for all your support and kind words regarding OX.  We have been shown a welcome warmer than any band could hope for.

This one is for the coalesce history books

This is probably the single weirdest thing that has happened in our little history as a band.  Music reviewer Mark Prindle did an interview segment on Fox News’ “Red Eye”.  When asked if there was any band on the radar for “album of the year”, Mr. Prindle said our own Ox was the contender.  But then it got extra crazy and amazing.  I’m not going to ruin it for you, but skip to the 3:50 mark…

OX going into 2nd press soon, get last of 1st press now.


“Already?”, that’s what we thought too.  But it’s true, ox is going into second press with a low number, and we still have our share of the (1st press) vinyl since we’ve been in Europe this whole time.  We have all versions available to the public online now.  We lowered the price and are even throwing in some freebies to sweaten the deal.

Cd: There was a mishap with some of the cutting on the Art set.  Sean wanted some bookmarks for himself, and just kinda kept making them until he ran out of thread.  they turned out beautiful.  Cd and bookmark are only $12.00.  Get it HERE.

Lp: There were a few test prints left over of the artset, and enough to include 2 random prints with each Lp.  Vinyl and art prints together are now only $18.00. Get it HERE.

European Merch designs: We only had a handful of shirts left over so we opted to take them home.  These are the 3 designs that we had on sale in Europe and England.  They are printed on Gildan ringspun tees and ink is discharge.  Get them HERE.

Terrorizer interviews Ingram at Hellfest. Looks akward, not used to metal girls.

At Hellfest in france, or the thunderdome as the band lovingly refers, Terrorizer interviewed Ingram for their site.  The following happened…

Pitchfork Media feature: “metalcore” not mentioned once (thanks!)

We wanted to turn your attention to a very cool article that one of our favorite music sites recently did for OX, pitchfork media.   We forgot how many times during a promotion cycle that you get the same questions.  No command V used here.

Some quick updates as OX draws near.

Hey folks, just a few notes as we get ready for the OX release.

First off, we’ve been posting links and updates pretty much instantly at our twitter page.  Check that out if you want to see a more sporadic and personal account of things happening.  You can see that here. 

If you are one of the ones who didn’t download the leak, you can hear “The Purveyor of Novelty and Nonsense.” here.  It’s exclusive to this site apparently. Since the release is so close, I’m pretty sure the whole thing will be streamed soon enough, but honestly, the streams don’t do the production job any justice.

We got an amazing write up by Ian Robinson, the metal vj guy from MTV back when the Rock was reigning WWF champ.  And WWF was still called WWF.  Regardless, you can read that review here. In general we won’t post all reviews on this site, we’ll leave that to our twitter page, but this one was especially flattering.

Also, we wanted to let you know that the next installment of OX, titled OXEP is done and off to mastering.  It is 16 more minutes of OX and will see a 2009 release.  You can view the lyrics right now on the lyrics tab above.

And just because it’s been cracking me up for days, some nature head banging.  If you are one of the dudes in here, get in touch, Ingram wants to go camping with you guys really bad.

We wanted to let you guys know that the OX Preorder is now available.  The band decided to try something different this time.  Shirts are cool, but we wanted to try a few different things.  Here is a heads up on what we went with.

1. A metal flask with the OX cover engraved on the front.  We’ve never seen a band flask before, and we know you all drink.  We pay attention to stuff like that.

2. A stash box.  Officially it’s to stash things like pens and paperclips and stuff like that. In reality we know you’ll find something more interesting to stash in here, and we designed it to meet those specifications.  It’s a black matte box with the OX icon engraved into the wood on the top.  It’s 2.5″ tall, so it’ll fit your bulkier pen sized item perfectly.  It’s lined with velvet on the sides and top, but we made a special printed cardboard for the bottom incase you know, the insides of your pen spill out and you want to make sure you get it all back in your pen.  After writing this, I’m thinking we should have made a pen to go with this.

3. A 12 piece art print set.  This thing is massive and for the art/gig poster crowd.  We printed 1 of each of the ox icons, totalling 12 in all.  They are hand silkscreened in silver on black matte cover stock.  Each piece is 8″ x 8″ and ready to frame.  They come packaged in a black envelope that is printed and then hand signed/numbered by the artist Don Clark (invisible creature / demon hunter).  The envelope is then sealed with a wax seal.  This project is limited to only 200 pieces.  175 are black and silver, and then 25 are a limited red on red.  The red ones are chase packs and are inserted randomly into orders for these.  If you get one with a red wax seal you know you got some ebay fodder.  These are only being run once, and at $25.00 it’s a steal what with how much time is involved to produce these.

4. We also have all the new ox related merch up.  We did low numbers to see what folks wanted before we go into full production.  For gods sakes, if you are sick of black shirts send us a message.

That’s it folks, we thank you for checking it all out and supporting us for what we hope is a loose year.
