Fans are given the option to either leave their square as it was, or submit an image of their choosing, making the final "big picture" a collaboration between Face Candy's fans and artist Louis N. LaPierre. If you want a part of you to be a part of this album - then pre-order today. There's not many spots left, so hurry! Pre-order yours today from Fifth Element: Order Now. You can choose from a limited deluxe CD version or limited hand numbered vinyl picture disc both of which include a DVD full of bonus material.

Waste Age Teen Land marks the second release from Twin Cities quartet Face Candy. Featuring the talents of dual vocalists Micheal “Eyedea” Larsen and Kristoff Krane freestyling over the improvisations of bassist Casey O’Brien and drummer JT Bates, Waste Age marks the final record Eyedea was able to completely finish before his tragic passing in October of 2010.

Recorded during two days at Winterland Studios by Brian Johnson (Prince, Eyedea & Abilites) and one night in front of an audience at St. Paul’s Black Dog Café (engineered by No Bird Sing’s Graham O’Brien), the album showcases the band’s full spectrum of talents—from contemplative instrumentals to auto-tuned joke rapping, and every shade in between. The record, and indeed the entire philosophy behind Face Candy requires sharp awareness in the moment. Are you ready to take the leap?

Fifth Element BONUS ITEMS: AN OUT TAKES CD containing select sections from the original recordings of "Waste Age Teen Land". The first 300 come packaged in individual hand painted CD sleeves that when put together create one complete art piece by Louis N. LaPierre.
