Brighton's best The Maccabees will release a new EP in limited numbers on Monday.
The Toothpaste Kisses EP will feature five tracks - a new, string-laden version of 'Toothpaste Kisses' with an extra verse; an acoustic version of 'Precious Time'; 'Sleep'; a poem read by ex-Eastern Lane man Derek Meins called 'Sleepless George' and, continuing a theme, 'Wake Up Go to Sleep'.
The individually numbered CD digipacks - the sole format holding the release - include a booklet of Orlando Weeks' illustrated story Sleepless George.
Copies will be available at the band's London Roundhouse show next Tuesday (16 Oct), and after that only from SisterRay on Berwick Street, W1 or the shop's website here.
Buy the record and the number of 'your' EP will be entered into a raffle to win one of three Fender Strats customised by the band.
