Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


The Deslondes' Ways & Means is the band's first new album in five years. It's produced by the band and their long-time collaborator Andrija Tokic of Alabama Shakes, and features artists including Margo Price, Twain and multi-instrumentalist Billy Contreras.

One of the band's vocalists and guitarist Riley Downing shared, "The album title reminds me of being young, getting into the music business, going through everything and coming out of it. We’re taking a look right, left and back at ourselves.”

The VMP edition of The Deslondes' Ways & Means is limited to 300 copies. The record is pressed on 1LP Flambeaux vinyl and will arrive in a single direct-to-board jacket that is foil stamped and numbered. It's mastered by Infrasonic Mastering's engineer, John Baldwin.
