beautiful people. pre-orders are scheduled to ship first week of april, or thereabouts. when pre-ordering, please bear in mind that eremite is one of two dudes in a cave, & that handmade records take time. eremite packages mandatory reality in a double-walled LP mailer (bags unlimited box MLPB12snug) with x4 cardboard "filler pads." all together, the packaging, heavyweight gatefold sleeve & x2 LPs weigh nearly three pounds, meaning a high shipping cost on international orders. i will experiment with another packaging option soon that, if successful, may bring down the cost to ship internationally. in the meantime, all orders --without exception-- will be sent using the packaging described above. 

one idea to bring down international shipping cost is to combine your order for mandatory reality with your trusted friend's order of mandatory reality
