Don Caballero’s First Recording Ever To Be Released!

PREORDER! Ships on/around 1 June 2014.

UPDATE (27 May): Due to production delays on the bonus record, preorders won’t ship until late June. A million apologies.

December 1991. Mere months into their existence, a three-piece Don Caballero drove to the Carnegie Mellon campus and knocked out eleven songs. On this, their earliest-known studio recording, the nascent Pittsburgh titans crank out jams that would appear in different form on early singles and their debut full-length, For Respect. Two songs would never make it onto a proper record and are here for the first time ever. As a special bonus, the band’s second live show is included as an additional download along with the record.
