Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, “American Sniper” more than doubled the previous record for 4-day take on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, broke all Super Bowl weekend records, had the largest January wide release opening of all time, and eclipsed all Christmas box office records for limited release.

The film is currently on pace to challenge “The Passion of Christ” as the top-grossing R-rated film of all time.

THIS WILL DESTROY YOU release “Their Celebrations” to benefit The Christopher Friedrich Memorial Fund (CASPIAN)

On August 25, 2013, the world lost a good soul in the human form of Christopher Friedrich, who passed away unexpectedly that afternoon. In the years he was with us, many had the privilege of meeting and knowing him personally, while even more got to know him via his wonderful music in the band CASPIAN. Ever since encountering Chris and his mates early on in both band’s lives, the true bonds of friendship, love, and respect between CASPIAN and THIS WILL DESTROY YOU have run strong throughout the years, now even stronger after having lost such an important member of the extended family.

Sadly and tragically, Chris also leaves behind his widow Nadia Hajjar, whom he had just married four months before his passing. We can not fathom what Nadia must be enduring to go from such pure elation and happiness to completely having the world fall out from under her feet in such a sudden and unforgiving chain of events.

To assist in a time of such devastation, the families of Christopher Friedrich and Nadia Hajjar have established The Christopher Friedrich Memorial Fund. Anyone reading this can contribute directly here:

• http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/christopher-friedrich-memorial-fund/83932

To help in our own way, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU and Magic Bullet Records are currently offering the non-album song “Their Celebrations” to the public in exchange for donations to the fund. All proceeds from the sale of this track will benefit Nadia Hajjar in the wake of her loss.

The track can streamed and downloaded here: 

• http://magicbulletrecords.bandcamp.com/album/their-celebrations

Thank you for considering. Thank you for listening.

Special edition : THIS WILL DESTROY YOU “Young Mountain” BLACK POLLEN LP

Now in the webstore : THIS WILL DESTROY YOU Young Mountain LP : special, limited BLACK POLLEN edition.

While sorting through the latest repress of Young Mountain, I found a special “strain” within the batch that was insanely cool. I separated all of them from the rest of the colors and ended up with a limited amount that I’m calling the BLACK POLLEN edition.

These particular records are rather sinister looking. To the naked eye, they appear largely black, with bursts of what seems like yellow “pollen” throughout. The patterns are all over the place and each is unique to itself… BUT, when held to the light, a whole new presentation emerges, as what was once black now turns an almost deep gold… and other colors and patterns begin to present themselves. There’s a lot going on with these…

In keeping with the dark theme, I repackaged all of these with black dust sleeves (as opposed to standard white). They come with the white ink/kraft stock variant cover and an Mp3 download of the entire album.

Quantities are extremely limited!

Available in the webstore. Act now or forever hold your peace.
