THE PACKAGING FOR GRAF ORLOCK’S DOOMBOX IS SSSSSSSSSIIIICCCCCCKKKKKK
Graf Orlock have a history of doing insanely cool shit for their album packaging — 2007’s Destination Time Tomorrow, for example, was held in the grasp of a facehugger from the Alien franchise — but I think it’s safe to say that they’ve pretty much outdone themselves, and just about everyone else, with the packaging for their new EP, Doombox (our review here). From the official press release:
Behold, the Doombox EP, whose packaging consists of an actual-size (30”x10”x10”) fold-out cardstock “boombox.” The “boombox” holds the Doombox EP in 10” vinyl and CD formats, as well as a separate CD containing the band’s three previous releases, known collectively as the Destination Time Trilogy.
And here’s a pic of the full set:
So, obviously, that’s pretty ridiculous, and the band deserves some kind of Nobel Prize or some shit for thinking it up. If you’re a Graf Orlock fan, I don’t really see any way you can’t buy this, and if you’re not, well, it comes with ALL the band’s releases, so now would be a good time to get with the program, no?
Doombox comes out January 18 on Vitriol Records. Theoretically you should be able to pre-order this disgustingly awesome package here, although the direct link doesn’t seem to be working right now. But keep checking back, ’cause I’m sure they’ll fix that shit soon!
And don’t forget that Graf Orlock are doing three shows with Owen Hart next weekend. Here are dates:
Dec 17 – Tacoma, WA @ The Redroom
Dec 18 – Vancouver, BC @ Garbage Mountain
Dec 19 – Portland, OR @ Branx
