Great Americans, back in action.

“With this update I’m pleased to announce the first new Ween release in a long while; “The Friends E.P.” will be released exclusively on Chocodog Records on June 19. You can now buy the record (and a cool t-shirt) via pre-order by clicking above. It features 5 brand new songs, none of which will appear on the new full length Ween album scheduled to be released this fall on a “real” record label, not Chocodog. We have recorded a lot of new material the past year and we wanted to give you an appetizer for the summer. It is is the ultimate party record, filled with good beats and good times. Perfect for your barbecue or doing bong hits or whatever it is that you guys do. You really need to buy multiple copies through this website. If you download it or burn a copy from a friend your karma will be so fucked that you will be reincarnated as a tumor on a rat’s ass. We put a lot of time into this, like 4 years. What is that 9.5 months a song or something? You’re gonna buy it on I-tunes? No way. Seriously though, you’re gonna love it.”
