Originally conceived as a frenetic side-project founded by members of Thursday, Glassjaw and Converge, United Nations’ membership and ideology have evolved into a full-time flagship for incendiary chaos. Their line-up overhauled to include members of acclaimed screamo group Pianos Become The Teeth, United Nations have become a perpetual lightning rod for controversy, confusion, and contempt – in other words, they have become one of the most promising punk bands in North America. Now, the enigmatic supergroup have returned with the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled 2008 debut – and their first new recordings since 2010’s highly sought-after “Never Mind The Bombings, Here’s Your Six Figures” 7” on Deathwish Inc. Featuring material recorded between the spring of 1981 and the fall of 2016, The Next Four Years picks up where “Never Mind The Bombings” left off, expanding on their already caustic sound with an even greater sense of urgency and aggression. It’s a furious homage to the pioneers of punk, and a scorching critique on the current state of “punk.” It is the most cathartic music of their mysterious career, and unquestionably some of the most vital heavy music released this year.

SUPER-DELUXE VINYL BOX SET: This is hands-down one of the most insane packages we've ever made (which is saying a lot if you're familiar with our catalog). For the vinyl version of the new United Nations album, we decided to do something outside of the box...by making a box with tons of stuff inside of it! Two 7" vinyl records, one 10" vinyl record, one cassette, all inserted into a custom-made sturdy cardboard platform! All of this madness is then packaged inside a custom die-cut full-color cover wrap box inspired by vintage New York Times newspapers. The newspaper features loads of full-length articles that may or may not be true, as well as a very damning cover photo. The 7"s and 10" features exclusive artwork by an acclaimed group of fine artists and designers, including STEAK MTN, Victoria Burge, MrThe, and Jeremy deVine. The cassette is packaged inside folded up copies of the actual cease-and-desist letter the band received from the United Nations Organization. Each box set is assembled and numbered entirely by hand by the band at Temporary Residence Ltd. HQ! This set is truly unbelievable, too difficult to even describe how insane this thing is.

     

SUPER-DELUXE VINYL BOX SET + EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT: This is the same insane box set described above, plus a special 2-color UN T-shirt design that is EXCLUSIVE to this pre-order! At Checkout, please make a note of the T-shirt size you want.
