Paradise of Bachelors will officially release Hiss Golden Messenger’s masterful Poor Moon LP on the first of November, el Día de los Muertos. The first fully electric ensemble recording since 2010’s highly limited Root Work, Poor Moon represents both an elaboration and inversion of previous HGM efforts, proposing an America at perpetual sundown, wracked by devotion, wrecked by celebration. We are very proud of this album, and we hope that you will enjoy it.

To commemorate the release of the Poor Moon, we’ve come up with a pre-order structure by which you can ensure your vinyl copy of the album and also order two additional digital releases—Lord I Love the Rain and Plowed: Live in Bovina—not available anywhere else on this earth. Poor Moon is available only in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies, so please consider reserving one now before they’re all gone.


Our $20 (plus shipping and handling) Oak Level pre-order guarantees you a copy of the Poor Moon LP, in addition to a digital download of the album on October 15th, two weeks before the album’s official street date.


Our $25 (plus shipping and handling) Ash Level pre-order secures your vinyl copy of Poor Moon and an early digital download of the album PLUS an immediate digital download of the brand-new Lord I Love the Rain EP, a release that juxtaposes a selection of offcuts from 2010’s celebrated Bad Debt and the never-released HGM conceptual soundtrack He Wore Rings On Every Finger.


Our $30 (plus shipping and handling) Rowan Level pre-order ensures your copy of Poor Moon (with early digital download), the Lord I Love the Rain EP, AND an immediate digital download of the legendary but rarely-heard Plowed: Live in Bovina performance, originally taped on a hand-held recorder in Upstate New York in 2008.

Taken together, these three releases represent well over 100 minutes of new recordings by Hiss Golden Messenger.
