BIRDPEN MERCH AND MUSIC WINTER SALE

Winter greetings everybody. The electric fuzz from our recent tour has now settled to a gentle warm hum whilst we kind of hibernate for the remaining winter months. A massive thanks to everybody that came to a show, we had a fantastic time out on the road.

We have a great sale on the remaining merchandise and music we make, so take a browse over at the BirdPen shop and grab a bargain whilst you can. Look out for the great t-shirt & album combo deal, it's better than a greasy carcass bargain bucket, lasts longer and is much better for your soul! We now also have the awesome In The Company Of Imaginary Friends limited edition gatefold white vinyl available, these are very limited stock so grab one before they vanish down the doom groove music consumers rabbit hole. And for you retro collectors, a few white limited edition hand numbered cassette tapes of the album are available too. All prices include postage and packaging worldwide.

After mince pies and cheese we will be carrying on in working on new noise and melody. Keep checking your screens as messages will be shown.
