Published Aug 27, 2010New York indie quartet the Walkmen are now just two weeks from unleashing Lisbon upon us. In case you needed some incentive to pick it up early, the band have revealed that they are teaming up with Etsy to create a series of pre-order options that should have even the most casual of Walkmen fans getting a little antsy.
According to the band's North American label, Fat Possum, pre-orders for Lisbon, complete with a variety of the added Etsy bonuses, are available right now by clicking here.
The album is available on both CD and vinyl, both of which come with: your pick of the CD or LP, an autographed seven-inch containing A-Side "Weight On My Shoulders" and B-Side "Good Days Carry On" (designed by artist Yusuf Sevincli), and a limited-edition silkscreen insert designed by Etsy artist Beauideal, which is limited to 200 copies.
Also available are a limited-edition, "Lisbon-inspired" 14x18-inch Walkmen poster designed by Etsy artist LittleTired (limited edition of 150 prints), and a "Lisbon-inspired" limited-edition Cork T-shirt designed by Etsy artist Sheepshead, printed on American Apparel.
More info about the various pre-order editions and the artists can be found here and at the Walkmen Etsy Store.
Lisbon drops September 14. The band will embark on a sizable North American tour a week earlier, starting in Seattle on September 8. Those dates are all below.
