The Captain Ahab Fan Club

From Deathbomb Arc:

Hello friends!

Are you a Captain Ahab fan? Well, in fall 2008 Deathbomb Arc will
release the new Captain Ahab album THE END OF IRONY. This follow-up to
After the Rain My Heart Still Dreams will take you in new directions
never experienced on an Ahab album or in the history of music itself.
You will experience new emotions not yet known to mankind (although
very similar to humiliation, cowardice, and pathetic submission).

Now, reading what a label says about this new album is one thing, but
what if you could hear sneak previews from THE END OF IRONY months
before anyone else? What if you could read the personal thoughts of
Captain Ahab mastermind Jonathan Snipes? What if you owned things that
we stole from dancer Jim Merson’s house? Then you would REALLY KNOW.
Wouldn’t you?

Well, all these things and more can happen to you! Join the Captain
Ahab fanclub and you’ll get not just these things but fanclub-only
tshirt, buttons and more!

Join today! Limited to 2000 members only, so act fast! More info,
paypal, and your entry point to THE END OF IRONY here: 


We’re touring Australia. Fuck yes. Here’s the shows:
