This will include a copy of the test press (1 of 10) packaged in a silk screened envelope with 2 bonus covers, 1 silk screened poster, a 1.75″  button set & more.

Raffle tickets are 1 ticket for $2, 3 for $5 & a snake length for $10 (5+)

These will be available in store at Hammer City Records & events like SLAMFEST or online via PayPal ( add 5% in USD + postage if you win we will send a photo of your raffle ticket)

Draw date Sept 1  5PM EST as we close shop, SC will draw the ticket and we’ll post video of the draw.

Why are we doing this? Those Schiz die hardship/inner circle types know we’ve  gone all out for any test presses we’ve been able to share. We thought this was the best way to share an exclusive item with the wider cell of Schiz supporters.
