The band are offering the choice of paying either £5 for a high-quality mp3 bundle (to be delivered on August 21), £8 for a CD (to be delivered on October 27), or £10 for a combined order of both CD and mp3 bundle. The CD release of ‘Intimacy’ will include additional tracks unavailable on the mp3 bundle release. It can be pre-ordered here.
