PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY (especially the "fine print" at the end):
Introducing The Flenser Membership SERIES FIVE, a curated selection of the next phase of Flenser releases. Series Five Members will receive a total of EIGHT LPs, including a limited-edition vinyl record that is exclusive to the series and not available to the general public in a physical format. These will all be special editions unique to members only, meaning either special vinyl colors or supplemental artwork that isn't otherwise offered to the public. Please note that The Flenser Membership Series encompasses the next seven releases currently on our schedule (plus the exclusive LP) and not necessarily the full calendar year of titles. Due to long manufacturing timelines, it's likely that some Series Five titles will arrive in 2024.
As mentioned above, in addition to seven new releases, Series Five members will receive a special LP record not available for sale elsewhere. This exclusive release will be announced in the coming months.
All Series Five members will receive the full set of titles in the series no matter when the order is placed. IE, those who sign up later in the year will still receive the full series and bonus items.
Members will also receive Bandcamp downloads for all Series Five titles in their inbox, as well as a discount code for 10% off EVERYTHING from The Flenser webstore throughout 2023. Postage is included in the price. We will update the list below as titles are announced.
To get the most out of your membership, please use a reliable e-mail address at time of purchase. We also recommend signing up for our e-mail newsletter, as members that aren’t explicitly opted-in to receive e-mails from us will not receive the updates and download codes that we send throughout the course of the series. Unfortunately, e-mail addresses cannot be changed or edited after purchase.

In addition to the new albums we have planned for Series Five, there will be a number of represses from our back catalog this year. These will not be part of the series, however members can use their discount code to purchase them. Please note that there is no “Extreme” version of the series this year.
International members will be given the opportunity to add additional items to shipments in order to save on shipping expenses. We will contact you before shipping your package and you can add what you want, or we can hold purchased items for you and refund the difference on the price of shipping. Just send us an email after making your order asking us to hold it.
SERIES FIVE MEMBERSHIP PRICES:
$220 for Domestic Membership (IE, within the USA)
$270 for Canadian Membership
$320 for Rest of the World Membership
The fine print:
MEMBERSHIP CANNOT BE CANCELED OR REFUNDED AT ANY TIME. As with all of our vinyl releases, manufacturing and production delays are possible. In order to keep the postage costs reasonable, members in Canada and the Rest of the World will receive their shipments in batches. Domestic members may also receive shipments in batches if multiple releases arrive around the same time. Due to the already complex nature of this endeavor, new orders cannot be combined with membership shipments except where noted.
Series Five by definition includes eight full-length albums, and is not limited to any timeframe. Some releases will likely be shipped in 2024.
The records included with Series Five are already planned out and finalized, but we may have other new releases land on our schedule that are not part of the series. If this is the case, they will NOT be added to the Membership Series after the fact, and a separate purchase will be necessary. Additionally, the reissues and represses we have planned for this year are not a part of Series Five and will require a separate purchase. Series Members will be given advance notice of any new releases that aren’t included in Series Five and will also receive early access to our annual Black Friday sale.
Additionally, our release schedule is subject to change. If a release is heavily delayed, we reserve the right to make changes or substitutions to previously announced titles.
Changes of address must be reported immediately to avoid additional reshipping charges. Please submit address updates to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the order number received at time of purchase.
We appreciate you so much. Thank you for your interest in our artists.
