United Nations Debut “Serious Business”, Reveal August US Tour


United Nations (ex-Thursday, etc.) have begun streaming “Serious Business” from their new album, “The Next Four Years“. You can find it below and pre-order it now here. Due out on July 15th through Temporary Residence LTD., a ‘super-deluxe vinyl box set’ edition of the album is being offered and according to the label includes:

“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.”
