You guys know us at this point — you know we stay adequately stoked just about all the time. But we just got some “new news” [couldn’t help it, had to do it] from the kind guys at Jeffrey Drag Records that has us closing in on some record high stokedness.

And they’ve even gone ahead and tossed up a pre-order option so you can order now and not have to worry about it later.

They’ve got a few lines on some more releases to be announced soon, so keep your eyes and ears peeled… and catch them Thursday March 8th at Exit/In for the FREAKIN’ WEEKEND III
