    Physically own Letters of Last Resort, with unique and personalised packaging. The achingly classic Compact Disc comes in a lovingly-crafted 6-panel digipak cardboard case, beautifully slipped into a brown fleck 120gsm thick recycled vegan gluten-free envelope, with your fine name and gorgeous address printed in jet cobalt black ink. Affixed with a stalwart bright red 1st Class stamp, the package is then hand-placed into a traditional British postbox.

    (Personalised artisanal envelope subject to availability and the whim of an unstable printer.)

    Includes unlimited streaming of Letters of Last Resort via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Over there waiting for you
The call of the void, the derring-do
The chance to do things right
Then you find your old writings on the floor
Incomprehensible notes are scattered, tossed and torn
And you force them back through your front door
And the postman removes them from your home

Here on an island of stone
And I was alone, whereas you didn't know
And I would have stayed
Secure in the choices that we made
And you thought a letter was brave

Resolve it all by turning you down
A fixture away, playing outside of town
Another life
Oh for what I would not give
There are too many lives to live
