If your order does not include a pre-order item and you still need help, please get in touch by emailing 

Please include your order number when emailing.

If you would like to return a clothing item please make sure it's unworn/unwashed condition.

You can request help with returns by emailing

Please include your order number.

We cannot accept returns on handmade items.

Usually we get this question with either Have a Nice Life’s Deathconsciouness vinyl or Giles Corey's self-titled record. Both are extremely heavy albums that come with books and this raises the shipping cost. 

The cost of shipping is just that, the cost of shipping. We do not make a profit on shipping fees. 

If you’re in Europe you can also order from our friends in France at Deathwish EU/Throatruiner. They offer most of our catalog, including many limited edition variants and pre-orders for new releases.

Deathwish EU in France carries most of our releases.

Evil Greed in Germany has a good selection our releases also.

All copies of Have a Nice Life's Deathconsciousness vinyl are suppose to come with the book.

If you still need to buy a copy of the book you can do so here.

If you order the vinyl from us you don't need to also order the book.

The CD and cassette editions don't come with the book.

If your order has not shipped yet please contact us at the below email to request a refund.

If you would like a refund on an order that has shipped please contact us to arrange a return. You will be asked to return the items to us before we can issue a refund.

Please note that we now have to take a small restocking fee in order to compensate for fees associated with our payment processors. Our payment processors do not refund us their commission on refunds refunded orders.

The Flenser Record Label

The Flenser is a dark music record label from San Francisco, California USA.

The Flenser started as a metal label in 2009 but has since evolved to work with many adjacent genres.

Some of the artists we have worked with include Have a Nice Life, Street Sects, Planning For Burial, Midwife, Bosse-de-Nage, and Chat Pile.

Nowflensing is the home of The Flenser record label, but we also distribute a small number of releases by artists and labels we like.

Please contact Terrorbird:

We are exclusively distributed by Revolver USA. Contact them for North America and International distribution.

CARGO UK also carries many of our releases in the UK.

Konkurrent is based in the Netherlands and distributes our releases in Europe.

We are not currently accepting unsolicited demo submissions. 

Our suggestion is to work on creating a project with a strong fanbase and community involvement.

Play cool shows with cool people.

Connect with the artists you admire. Send your music to the artists you admire. Involve yourself with a local DIY community or music scene.

If there isn't one, find one nearby. If bands don't come to your town start putting on local shows and bring touring bands to your area. This is the absolutely crucial work and can help you grow your own musical endeavors.

When we look at prospective artists we are especially interested in a band's touring history. Tour out of your area when possible.

Create a special unique aesthetic. Create music that does not sound like anything else. Have a unified visual aesthetic.

Take risks. Don't follow trends.
