Open Season came out in late August 2011. We've gone on tour with several bands since like Mates of State and The Kooks andwe always had people asking for a vinyl record after the shows. We started feeling silly about it... so here is our attempt (better late then never) and your chance to help us get those records!

Heres a preview video of the album, featuring snippets of songs:

Some of you may know we released the album completely on our own. Everything about it was DIY, from the recording and mixing process down to the release, which we did through a label we started ourselves (FeelTrip). We decided that it would only make sense to get vinyl if you guys truly, TRULY wanted it (because its really quite pricey). We would love for our friends and fans to really have something as long lasting and beautiful as a record. 

Follow the link to stream 'Open Season' online:

Once we reach our goal, we will submit the music to be lacquered and then pressed, a process that usually takes 2-3 weeks. Hopefully we can have the fresh wax at your doorstep in early June!

Your help and support means the world to us.

Love,

YAWN
