LTP x TUMBLE (a collaboration)
Good morning, and happy Day-After-Thanksgiving!
(You can’t very well say Happy Black Friday! now can you?)
Nevertheless, it is that bleak, fateful post-thankful day, and so - first of all - in the spirit of yesterday’s appreciation, I just want to say how grateful I am for you, here, reading this now.
I believe I’ve hit the decade-mark on getting to do something that I have loved for a living. Next October will mark the ten-year anniversary of my very first record, Werewolves.
To have survived this long – let alone having been able to make provision for my wife in the process – is nothing short of a miracle, and one enacted by God through you.
However intimately and/or vicariously you, reading this today, have been a part of our lives during these years: Thank You.
Yes, we are hosting a sale this weekend, but I wanted to get some new and special stuff out into this world as a part of it, so let me tell you a little bit about that…
We’ve officially partnered with TUMBLE - a woman-owned and operated small business here in Albuquerque, New Mexico - to bring you a special, collaborative collection of cuffs and keychains, hand-tailored and featuring some of the most recognizable LTP lyrics / writing.
My friend Kyla, who founded TUMBLE, says of her vision…
Our feet are deeply planted in our local community. We use our resources to empower & employ local women to break through generational cycles of abuse, oppression, and hardship.
As of now, we’ve got two stamped cuffs and four brass circular keychains available. Depending upon how this goes, we’re in cahoots about additional possible options for future releases, but for the time being, I hope this will be a fun, unique addition to the LTP line of souvenirs that we have available to y’all for the holidays.
Additionally, I’m super excited about a brand new T-Shirt design, thematically based upon It’s All Worth Living For, and available for preorder on the store now.
It’s all live for you now on our store. You can shop everything - new and old - here.
I’ve written a good amount in the product descriptions about each of these new pieces, but for your convenience, here is a link out to some of the most accessible “reasons” for our lyric choices for each:
Keep Forgiving (Spotify Audio)
Don’t Sink (YouTube Chapter 11: Cul-De-Sac Colonies)
F*ck Death (Happy Resurrection Day)
Much love, y’all. Have a beautiful rest of your weekend, and as always:
* P.S. (IMPORTANT) Please expect / allow a couple weeks on the turnaround for your orders this weekend. We've added more sizes back to our stock for a few of the shirts that people have been writing in and wondering about, as well. We are placing an order with our printer this week for both this weekend's sale and our upcoming Christmas tour (tickets available here) and will include any sales received this weekend in our numbers so that we can pay them forward to you as soon as possible.
P.P.S. That said, we're going to our absolute best to make certain that – especially for those of you who are purchasing Christmas gifts for others (or yourself) – your orders are in the mail as soon as possible. Each year, we work hard to make sure your gifts are ready beneath the tree, and that goal continues to be one that we'll strive for this holiday season.
