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.
