COLOSSAL NEWS DAY: Welcome to the most glorious and action-packed Tuesdays With Lazerbeak of all time!!! It brings me supreme joy to announce that on January 27th Doomtree Records will release All Hands, the brand new full-length crew album from all seven members of Doomtree. Maaaaaaaan that feels good to finally type out loud. Check out the sweet album cover art below!
You can’t announce a brand new album without a blazing hot, heat knocking, lava banger of a new single. Check out “Gray Duck” in the Soundcloud player below and get seriously AMPED OUT OF YOUR MIND for All Hands!
Here’s “Gray Duck” in a YouTube player format just in case you have a serious vendetta against streaming audio services.
Alright, you can’t announce a brand new album and a blazing hot, heat knocking, lava banger of a new single without also announcing the most crushingly over-the-top pre-order in Doomtree Records HISTORY!!! Let me attempt to break down all of the amazing gifts that will be bestowed upon you when you pre-order All Hands directly from the Doomtree Webstore. The Standard Pre-Order option includes the following insanity:
- Immediate download of “Gray Duck” and “.38 Airweight”
- Digital download of bonus track “High Water” (delivered on 1/27)
- Glossy poster autographed by all seven members of the crew
- All Hands 4″ glow-in-the-dark sticker
- CD version includes a 36-page lyric booklet and a fold-out poster
- Vinyl version includes double LP gatefold packaging and a digital download code
All of that for just $12.99 on CD and $24.99 on LP. OUTRAGEOUS. That’s basically somewhere in the realm of what Paper Tiger spends on just one lunch at the airport Arby’s. But that’s not all….. If you’re really looking for the most incredible pre-order option in all of Doomtree Records history, look no further than the All Hands Deluxe Pre-Order. CHECK. THIS. OUT.
That’s right. You get every single item mentioned in the standard pre-order, plus the following awesomeness:
- Limited-edition glow-in-the-dark All Hands t-shirt (available only in this pre-order)
- Miniature ship in a bottle (like the album cover)
- All Hands branded matchbox (to recreate the album cover)
- 1.5″ metal DTR life preserver pin (to add to your No Kings and Four Fists pin collection)
- All Hands screen-printed cloth patch
- Vinyl version includes limited-edition color vinyl (A/B is light blue, C/D is dark blue)
DAAAAAAAAANG. Truly increíble. Go grab your standard and deluxe pre-orders at the Doomtree Webstore right HERE, right NOW (just like that Jesus Jones song).
And if you’re more of the digital type, you can pre-order All Hands from iTunes (HERE) or Bandcamp (HERE) and still receive “Gray Duck” and “.38 Airweight” instantly, as well as bonus track “High Water” when the album drops on 1/27.
OK for real, you can’t announce a brand new album, blazing-hot-heat-knocking-lava-banger of a new single, and the most crushingly over-the-top pre-order in Doomtree history without also announcing the ALL HANDS TOUR!!!

Come kick it with us and celebrate the release of the new beer! You can try it for yourself at each location and enter to win tickets to various Blowout shows throughout the week, including the super private Surly Doomtree launch party later that night. It’s gonna be awesome. Times and places are listed below.
