Dark Sacred Night

David Bazan

There is something that is underrepresented in Christmas music, and that’s just how uncomfortable the holidays can be for a lot of folks,” David Bazan says about his collection of holiday songs Dark Sacred Night. Back in 2002, David Dickenson of Suicide Squeeze Records approached Bazan and asked if he would be interested in doing a 7” of Christmas carols. The result was the “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day” b/w “Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel” single released under Bazan’s Pedro the Lion moniker. He followed it up with “The First Noel” 7” in 2003 and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” in 2005. Even after retiring the Pedro The Lion project, Bazan continued his run of Yuletide singles for Suicide Squeeze under his own name. These limited edition 7”s are all long out of print, but David Bazan and Suicide Squeeze have chosen ten of the fourteen tracks, remixed and remastered the material, and collected them on Dark Sacred Night.

Other items on the same order will be shipped together with the pre-order items on October 31, 2016. If you want other items shipped before that date, you should place a separate order.

Vinyl will be shipped with the record removed from the jacket and placed inside a clear mylar outer sleeve to help avoid seam splits and jacket damage during shipping.

Recent changes in USPS postage rates make it expensive to ship orders internationally. The cost we charge for shipping is automatically calculated based on the actual weight of your order. We’re only covering the cost of the postage and the packaging used to ship your order. We’d love to offer a lower cost option. But there are no other lower rates available at this time. Thanks for understanding.

* Please don't share your download link or put the files on torrent sites, youtube other file-sharing websites. We're trying to do something direct, easy and affordable for fans that also supports the artists and musicians. We'd like to continue delivering stuff this way. We can't stop you from torrenting or sharing. All we can do is politely ask that you enjoy the music and let others buy it the same way you did. Thank you!
