We went ahead and gambled on of the more unique songs first, and got to put up a rocker we like a lot too.  Check it.

The Year of the OX, 2009.

As of today, the record is complete and has been submitted to Relapse Records for international distribution, (including Vinyl format).  We’ve entitled the record “Ox” and it will include 14 new songs totaling roughly 35 minutes.  Ed Rose at Blacklodge Studios recorded and mixed the record, and Mike Fossenkemper at Turtle Tone mastered it.  The guys at Invisible Creature are presently finishing the artwork and packaging.  We’re hoping for a release date sometime between April and May.  The exact date will be made public as soon as we have one.

We are currently planning tours for each US coast as well as SXSW and some over seas jaunts.  We also plan on attending a few festivals in an effort to play in areas that may not fit into our tour schedules.

In an effort to make room for new Ox merchandise, Blue Collar Distro has discounted almost all of the stock available at our online store.  Many of our recent clothing designs are on sale, some at prices lower than cost.  If you have any interest, check it out HERE.

For those of you who have contacted us online or at our shows during the past year and half with encouragement regarding your anticipation of the record, we apologize for how long it has taken us to put it all together.  We sincerely appreciate all the support you have given us and we’re trying to do as much coalesce as our schedules will allow.

Thank you so much…


Hello Folks, we promise to have some substantial news for you within the next 2 weeks about our new full length effort and how it’s going to go down, but in the meantime (pun intended), we wanted to let you know that we found 75 of the original (first pressing) give them rope records with no covers on them, so we came up with something creative for them. We put together a package that includes a limited slipmat, black label cover, and mylar sleeve. As an added bonus, 5 white versions were inserted randomly into the batch as chase versions if you feel so inclined. We are pretty confidant that there are no more coverless give them rope vinyl out there. It’s priced to move at $10.00 for the whole package, no limit, so please buy 75 of them.

We also wanted to let you know that the 2 new tshirts we took to florida are up on the site in all sizes. The eagle one that will probably earn you a black eye, and the stuntman mike one that will probably earn us a cease and desist letter. Or a black eye. Remember the skull skates shirt we did? That earned us a beating threat from the owner of said skate company.

And again, we know times are tough, and this is just stuff we are selling, but we appreciate your sales none the less. Due to the amazing support you guys have shown us through merch sales, we were able to embark on our new full length writing, and recording process independently. This is a big deal to us, and it honestly would not have happened without your support.

talk to you in a few weeks.

10 Year Anniversary Functioning on Impatience available now!

Hey guys, we are shocked at how beautiful these things came out.  Expertly printed and die cut from, this brings new life to this classic release.  Full Color breakdown is as follows:

218 180 Gram
268 White/Silver Color in Color
268 Translucent Blue/Opaque Orange Splatter (Band Exclusive)
268 Clear w/ White/Translucent Red Speckle
268 Translucent Red w/ Black & Silver Splatter

The Coalesce store has the exclusive on the Blue/Opaque Orange splatter version. We have them in the store and they are ready to ship as early as tomorrow.  You will not find this color version in any physical store, or other online store, so grab them here now while you can, there are around 200 up for grabs.

As an added bonus (well to sean anyways, since he always wanted on of these), we are doing a bonus package as well.  We made a limited amount of coffee mugs with the foi art to go with the 10 year anniversary release.  Only around 60 or so.  They are not available by themselves, and we are not remaking them to our knowledge, so if you like coffee, and loud music with people screaming, get the combo package.  It will ship later than if you just get the record though.  Mugs should be in the week of the 18th and ship as soon as they come in.

In the meantime take a look at how rad they turned out…

012:2 art revealed

We still don’t have a release date, but we can confirm that Relapse is doing both a cd version and an LP version. The LP version will be limited, and here is a heads up exclusive for you vinyl nerds (like Sean).

limited run of 1000 LPs only.
400 Half light blue + half w/dark blue and red splatter
300 dark blue w/grey splatter (whole lp)
300 ½ blue + ½ black

Invisible Creature finished the art, and the band is stoked. Here is a shot. Check out their other work by clicking here.



As an added bonus for other iPhone junkies, here is an iPhone wallpaper to enjoy (without text and advertising to ruin the radness of this art).  Just right click on the phote and save to your desktop and then get it on your iPhone.  Enjoy!


One time only “Gas Jackets” online now, and other tidbits.

Hey Folks, just a few updates as the busy holiday season has snuck up on us.

First off, we have restocked our online store, and added a one time run, limited edition of Gas Jackets with the iconic looking salt art on them. There are not many of these made, and they are not being made again, so I would grab one quick. They are priced low, and if you remember how bands used to print their art on used gas jackets, then you’ll know how rad these things are. Ofcourse no one in the band can wear one, as they would be nicknamed “Captain Coalesce” as Sean was back when. You can buy a jacket by clicking HERE.

Relapse Records is also Reissuing the 0:12 Revolution in Just Listening record with new Mastering, and all new packaging. We are in love with Dan Henks original painting (plus the band just plain loves that guy personally), and it is included in the new packaging, but to breathe new life into this out of print LP, Band friends, the Clarks (from Invisible Creature and Demon Hunter), are doing a complete rework of the concept from the ground up. When they asked Sean what he wanted to see, the answer was “Do your thing, I have no input”. So you know this thing is going to rule if Sean trusts them enough to represent the band with no interference. They recently did the new Foo Fighters artwork, so I know you’ve seen their work. Expect the repress early next year, as all the deadlines are mid December to get it in to the label.

If you haven’t gotten a Salt and Passage 7″ yet, now is the time to do so, it’s almost out of press, and when they are gone, that’s it. It was a low pressing of 7″‘s to begin with, so don’t say we didn’t warn you. After that, our records seem to find a home on ebay for stupid amounts. Don’t be that guy.

The DVD red version is almost gone too, so if you want to kill someone with 10+ hours of coalesce playing live, get on it, because the future of this long awaited release is up in the air as well.

And lastly, Sean’s Dad fell victim to a heart attack. He lived but needs open heart surgery. Sean is taking him to Columbia, Mo. this month, and seriously asks anyone with a moment to keep Bob Ingram in their prayers for a successfull surgery.

Thats all for now, but to answer any chatter on the internets, yes the band is currently still writing for the new Full Length due in late 08/ early 09. Jes has been flying in to Kansas City to continue the writing process, and it’s going well. The band could not be happier with what’s happening with the material, and the excitement level from all members has been set to 11 the entire time. So if you are a fan, and are worried that they are going to “break up” or loose interest, take note that it has not been the case.
