New releases for sale Monday!

We’ve got a few pre-orders coming up and I wanted to make sure you guys know what’s going on. So, I’ll get right to it:

Pre-orders for John Nolan – The Acoustic Sessions (CCR-005) this Monday, August 27th at 10 AM EST!

Originally recorded as bonus tracks to accompany the release of "Height" and never officially released to the public, The Acoustic Sessions offers eight cuts of Nolan with not much more than a guitar and a keyboard. Its sparse arrangements highlight Nolan's introspective lyrics, catchy melodies and distinct vocal style, succeeding in its goal of breathing new life into familiar songs. This record is essential for fans of Nolan's work both past and present. Each order will come with a digital download of the album. You can pick up a copy here.
The pressing info is below:
Half Green, Half Peach (/100)
Peach (/150)
Green (/250)
Also available for this release are one-of-a-kind test presses. Each test is accompanied by a jacket hand drawn by LP design artist Jeff Versoi. Blending ideas submitted by fans with his own style, each jacket promises to be something special. Only FIFTEEN of these test presses exist.

Also available 8/27 – (CCR-004) They've Shot Flanigan – The Outlaw

Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, They’ve Shot Flanigan are quickly becoming one of my favorite new bands.  This pressing is limited to 500 copies, and is a co-release with Collective Confusion Records and Enjoy The Ride Records.

You can listen to the record in it’s entirety here. I highly recommend checking them out, and then, of course, picking up a copy! No, seriously, listen to this record. It's awesome.
Collective Confusion will have the "Tavern Floor" variant (Opaque brown with a Blood Red center), limited to 125 copies and available exclusively through the Collective Confusion Records store. Full pressing info is below. You can pick up the CCR variant here.
Pressing info:
Tavern Floor - Collective Confusion exclusive. Limited to 125 copies.
California Gold And Texas Oil - Enjoy The Ride/Hot Topic exclusive. Limited to 125 copies.
Barrel Smoke - They’ve Shot Flanigan web/show exclusive. Limited to 200 copies.

Pre-order Northstar – Is This Thing Loaded? LP out on Triple Crown Records 9/4!

There is a good chance if you’re reading this you are a Nick Torres fan. So, in a heartwarming gesture of indie label brotherhood, I’ve teamed up our friends at Triple Crown Records to make you guys aware of the vinyl release of Northstar’s Is This Thing Loaded? Pre-order it now! This LP is pressed on half green/half white vinyl (great minds think alike), and limited to 300 copies. This is obviously a must-own for fans of Cassino and Northstar, so pick up a copy directly from Triple Crown here. On a personal note, I can safely say I wouldn't be writing this email to you if it wasn't for this record. So buy it.

Well, now you're all caught up with the Collective Confusion world. Feel free to spread the word to your friends, families, dogs and co-workers. If you haven't yet, like us on Facebook and follow me on Twitter here (vain, I know). Thanks again for supporting Collective Confusion, and I hope you all pick up something this Monday!
