Tour dates! Japanese Import Malegoat split with live DVD!

Cool announcement time: In 2011, we did a Japanese tour with our friends in malegoat. As you may know, we did a split together that came out last year. It was a co-release with the wonderful stiff slack records, and their version just came out very recently. It features alternate artwork, different colors, AND A LIVE CONCERT DVD with 5 songs from each band. How cool is that?

We have a very limited amount of them for sale in the Count Your Lucky Stars Records webstore and aren’t likely to get them back in stock again. Better get on it! 

Here is the live concert DVD track list:

Empire! Empire!:

1) Water
2) I Am a Snail, and You Are a Pace I Cannot Match
3) Documenting Thirty Days
4) Everything Rests in Your Small Shoulders
5) Keep What You Have Built Up Here

malegoat

1) Nothing
2) Boredom
3) Tyding
4) resistance activity of the brain
5) Expression

The crew necks are back in stock for a little bit too, but once those are gone, they are gone too. Think spring, people!

2014 is going to be the best. Thanks for being so amazing to us for all these years 

Stream “When the Sea Became a Giant” on Alt Press, Pre-order it now! <3

Today is a very, very exciting day for so many reasons! The biggest being that you can now stream the remixed/remastered “When the Sea Became a Giant”, which is available on vinyl for the first time ever! There is also a bonus track from the same era- one that we’ve always loved and are very excited for everyone else to finally here. We also took a new “promo” pic, which was inspired by, “Crap, we need an updated picture”. Listen to the EP here, hosted by the fine folks at Alternative Press:

Pre-order it here: http://www.cylsrecords.com/

Two, if you want to download the new When the Sea Became a Giant for FREE next week, all you have to do is go to the Count Your Lucky Stars Records facebook page and scroll down for a bit to find the status to share. It’s at 666 shares or something, and if we can get it to 750, then it’ll be posted up on Monday, along with ENTIRE CYLS discography. It won’t let us link to the status for some reason.

Three, we are literally in the studio right now recording our new LP! Cathy is recording her guitar as we speak and the drums and my guitar is already done. We can’t wait for you all to hear it.

FINALLY, holy crap! The amount of support you guys give us is too much, we appreciate it so much. Seeing how well those eBay auctions are doing is almost silly. We had one more copy of What It Takes on vinyl sitting around so we signed it and threw it up on eBay so one more person will get a chance to get one. Thank you all so much for everything you guys do for us, we love you! ♥♥♥♥
