If you pre-order Tourist on vinyl, we are throwing in these classic tools of the wayward tourist, a film canister enamel pin (just bigger than an American quarter dollar) and a 35mm camera sticker (almost the size of a bank note). All pre-orders that have already taken place will receive these items also. Thanks a million for your years of support. Pre-order at this link here: TOURIST, or head over to the shop part of this page to be directed.
