The digital pre-release of Josh Freese’s Since 1972 that began March 24 exclusively at has already seen several of the album’s more lavish versions sell, including the $20,000 limited edition of one that features such bonus material as a miniature golfing trip with members of Tool and Devo, a night aboard the Queen Mary, 2 songs written about the purchaser and made available on iTunes, a drum lesson or foot and back massage, any 3 items out of Freese’s closet and more.

Additionally, the $250 limited edition of 25 that includes lunch with Freese at P.F.

Since 1972 will be released to conventional retail on April 14.

Josh Freese has been playing drums professionally since his debut with a Disneyland Top 40 band at the age of 12. His recording and touring credits include work with the Vandals, Devo, A Perfect Circle, Guns N’ Roses, Sting, the Replacements and a host of others. Most recently, he left Nine Inch Nails following the completion of the band’s Lights In The Sky Over North America tour.

Since 1972, like his 2000 album The Notorious One Man Orgy, features Freese singing and playing more or less everything: vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass and of course drums. Unlike previous solo Freese records, Since 1972 is available in a total of eleven configurations, ranging from a basic $7 digital download that also includes three videos to a $75,000 limited edition of 1 that includes one of Freese’s drum kits, a flying trapeze lesson and Freese either joining the purchaser’s band or becoming his or her personal assistant for one month.

A list of configurations still available is detailed below. For further information, contact Steve Martin or Amy Grote at nasty little man t 212 343 0740 e
