OUT NOW two new releases:
DEAD LETTERS SPELL OUT DEAD WORDS
After the online ep "don't need more songs to cry to" released recently,

at the iDEAL Festival.
The same recordings are also available on Hey You Fucking Man label as
Thomas Ekelund works and lives in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Arturas Bumsteinas works and lives in the city of Vilnius, Lithuania.
