Buy Early Get Now #9: Fucked Up – David Comes To Life

Remember back when we told you that Fucked Up had a new album on the horizon? Well that time is racing towards us faster than you can say “Byrdesdale Spa FC.”  However we’ve still got a little ways to go before the June 7 street date.  But alas!  We’ve found a way to not only get you the whole album early but for you to score a bunch of exclusive content.  We’re talking bonus 7″es, non-album tracks, posters.

The time has come for us to welcome back our dear old (and newly trademarked) friend Buy Early Get Now.

For its ninth birthday, Buy Early Get Now is getting the Fucked Up treatment and by placing a pre-order via mail order directly from us*or at a trusted local independent retailer for David Comes To Life on CD or 2xLP beginning Tuesday April 26, you’ll get the following:

– Instant download of 5 non-album songs plus the pre-album digital singles as MP3s on April 26.
– A full 192k album stream and hi-quality album download in 4 parts over 4 days from May 10-13.
– The CD or 2xLP and exclusive poster mailed to your house via Matastore or available to pick up on June 7.
– Download of Record Store Day Exclusive David’s Town comp on June 7.
– 4 bonus 7″es of 7 extra non-album songs available to pick up on June 28.

And, as always, if you don’t live anywhere near a participating retailer, you can always pre-order David Comes To Life directly from the Matador Store.

  1. Okay…so how do I preorder it? Your link doesn’t work and searching on the site takes me to a page for the item but I can’t actually, y’know, BUY it.

    I want to give you guys money. You’re making it hard.

  2. You can preorder it STARTING THIS COMING TUESDAY, APRIL 26 at: (in the UK and Europe)
    at a host of stores across the US and Canada (see map at

    Pricing varies depending on the store, the country, and whether or not you need to add shipping for mail order. (From the Matador webstore, the price BEFORE SHIPPING will be $35 for the all-vinyl package, $30 for the CD+4X7″ package, and $15 for the all-digital package. But remember to add shipping. And if you’re overseas, remember that means the final price may well be cheaper at Sandbag. And for you North Americans, don’t forget your trusty local indie retailer, if you’re near one and you want to avoid shipping charges. Check the map at, new stores being added all the time.)

    Of course, you’ll be able to preorder just the album without the early download/stream and the extras from all the usual sources if you prefer, including here.

    Again, PREORDER GOES UP ON TUESDAY. And prices will vary according to the store – above price is simply if you order from the Matador webstore, and before S&H charges.
