It’s Pronounced “Catsup.”

Dear Friends—

The time has officially come upon us: Privilege (Abridged) is officially available for pre-order in the US! Our mothers are very excited!

So excited, we’ve decided to make an exclusive fancy poster to go along with it—Illustrated by Parenthetical Girl Amber W. Smith, offset by Container Corps, and hand letterpressed by us Girls ourselves. ONLY AVAILABLE with pre-orders from Marriage Records!

Release dates for the record are February 19th for the US (via Marriage/Slender Means Society) & March 4th for EU/UK (via Splendour). And guess what, you guys? There’s a whole mess of new media to go along with it:

Commercials conceived and directed by Parenthetical Girls with Tropics (Ryann Bosetti & Alec Friedman.

“Sympathy For Spastics (Los Campesinos! remix)”

“Young Throats (YACHT Remix)”

…and that’s only the beginning. Stay tuned.
