04.30.11 Due to popular demand, we've decided to press another limited quantity of Maritime's We The Vehicles on vinyl. This time we're doing just 500 copies, on red wax. You can pre-order now for $16, which includes shipping to the U.S. They should be ready sometime in June--pre-order now to make sure you get one; they'll go fast! (And yes, the vinyl still includes the bonus tracks "Call Me Home" and "Before You Were Born.")

04.27.10 We are pleased to announce that we will be pressing 500 copies of Crooked Fingers "Reservoir Songs Volume Two" through Kickstarter. You have until June 15, 2010 to help out.

10.14.08 Sorry we didn't tell you earlier, but the Crooked Fingers vinyl was slightly delayed. If you ordered from us, it'll be shipping to you this week. And your favorite indie record store should have it by early next week. Sorry for the delay -- it wasn't our fault!

8.23.08 Foreign Leisure is delighted to announce that we'll be releasing the vinyl version of the upcoming Crooked Fingers disc, Forfeit/Fortune. It'll be our standard limited-edition of 1000 copies, all pressed on lovely white vinyl, and with a bonus track, "La Maleta Fea." (You might think you've heard that song before, but this is a new version!) The LP will also come with a code that allows you to download the entire album. Oh, you may know Crooked Fingers as the band led by Eric Bachmann (ex-Archers Of Loaf); we also released his solo debut on vinyl. If you pre-order, you'll be entered to win a test pressing of the LP. Forfeit/Fortune will be released on October 7.

3.1.08 We are finally out of the vinyl version of Maritime's Glass Floor -- first album, last to sell out. You might be able to find it (as well as the other Maritime LPs) on eBay or at your favorite indie record store or insound.com. The only Foreign Leisure title still available is Eric Bachmann's To The Races on vinyl; if you don't have it yet, you should get it!

2.06.08 We are officially out of Heresy And The Hotel Choir vinyl. Your favorite indie record store might still have some! Also, we're down to about 5 Glass Floor LPs, and those will be gone for good, too.

9.05.07 It's time! You can now pre-order Heresy And The Hotel Choir on vinyl via foreignleisure.com. (Only vinyl! If you want the CD, go visit our friends at flameshovel.com.) In case you hadn't heard, the record is limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies, and it includes a bonus 7" single with previously unreleased covers of Hot Chip and Snailhouse songs! The street date is October 2, and pre-orders should have it well before then. Also: Order the vinyl from us and you'll get a Foreign Leisure button. Also, too: If you're one of the first 50 people to pre-order, you could win a test pressing of both the LP and the 7". There are exactly five of those in existence. Click below to pre-order. Prices include media mail shipping.

8.07.07 We are proud to announce that on October 2nd we will be releasing the vinyl version of Maritime's Heresy and the Hotel Choir. Check back for more details.

7.17.07 Wood/Water is no more.

4.13.07 As it turns out we have a few more We, The Vehicles vinyl... We lied. We actually got a very small quantity back from a distributor, so they're order-able again. Get 'em while they last!

2.10.07 The vinyl version of Maritime's "We, the Vehicles" is now history.

8.14.06 Welcome to Foreign Leisure, a tiny, mostly vinyl label originally launched to release music by The Promise Ring and Maritime. We are pround to announce that we have just released the vinyl version of Eric Bachmann's solo record, To The Races. This fine little dandy is limited to one thousand hand-numbered copies, and it includes a vocal version of the title track that is unavailable anywhere else.
