Guess what arrived a LOT earlier than we expected?

I'll be picking these up in Detroit tomorrow afternoon. All shipments will go out from Team Minutes HQ on Friday.

Thanks so much for your patience and kind words!

BUMPED -- per the Minutes bandcamp page, there are only 10 physical copies of this phenomenal LP left, so if you've been on the fence about buying it, you best hop off that motherfucker STAT.

For some reason I accidentally bought just the download when this originally came out instead of the vinyl + download. I was going to just buy the vinyl from them on tour but hell, I guess I better order it now.

The album so nice I ordered it from bandcamp twice!

TBONE!

I'm very sorry about any confusion here. I'm gonna send a few little 'extras' along with your order.

YES! We are very nearly out of this album. I would say by this time next month them shits is out of print.

We have, for the record, 9 left for bandcamp and a box of 45 for the road (to sell on tour).

I can't wait to see a few of you next month. We're doing a little jaunt with WHALES, staring in Chicago on March 3rd. New song. Old songs. I'm heavier, and my hair is longer. Totally looking forward to eating my way from Chicago to NY and back.

Shit's gonna be so dope.

Thanks to you all.

DAVE! Thank you so much. I mailed yours this AM.

There are 2 left for mail order consumption, then a box of 45 for tour.

Then to ebay 20 years from now.

I was just in Kalamazoo yesterday, I should have planned ahead.

Yep, I probably should have been more clear: I brought the count down to 1.

New summer single. We're playing the rare show tonight and this is our little celebration of it.

I'm happy about this one, but I'm mostly happy that we're playing brand new songs tonight.

Mostly, I'm just happy!

Ann Arbor, which I'm told is abbreviated A2 (?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!), is one of the places we like playing best. We've never had a bummer show there, ever.

I tried to get one for this weekend, but no one bit.

We played the single hottest basement show in history last night. Totally fucking bonkers nuts. I nearly passed out, twice.

One of those 'stacked' bills, too.

Speedy Ortiz, y'all. Really wonderful band from the East Coast. Just great.

Batcave, from here in Kalamazoo, just great.

ROCK AND ROLL IS JUST GREAT!

I'm sure your daughter loves you for making her be in public like that...

When are you guys going to write "Sometimes National"?
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

OUR NEXT SINGLE!

In all honesty, it's all her. A total, actual freak of a human being. It's kinda neat to be around a person who's so clearly ON HER OWN TRIP, pretty much all the time.

She doesn't really GO DEEP around other folks (she's no trained monkey), but when she gets comfortable, WATCH OUT. Actually weird kid.

I love my weird kid so, so much.

ERAWK! I miss rocking with you.

Soon enough.

Two things this week.
Here's the first! A demo/live/goofy version of our album. It's free!

http://minutes.bandcamp.com/album/self- ... es-version

Later this week we'll put out a single on the internet. Recording album number two this summer.

Thanks!
