      I am now totally realizing I have an actual account! For the record, @wompface:disqus is @yourmothernude.

    Lorin, you really outdid yourself with this album. I am beyond blown away and moved by this record. NVSB gave me what I’ve always loved about Bassnectar, what I wanted from Bassnectar, and even what I didn’t expect from Bassnectar. I simply want to say thank you.

  • So BERgh

    My mother will see you on the 15th of October

  • ColinJames

    Florida would love some bassnectar.

  • Noah K

    Can we please have some Florida love? I’m hoping those November 1st and 2nd dates are round two in Miami, I don’t see how you couldn’t after last year…

  • Dan McCambridge

    I would love to hear what the bass community over here thinks about the new Zeds Dead album.

    • SpottieOttieDopealicious

      I’m diggin it! Diverse beats, sounds, mixing, yet you still know it’s ZD…kinda like Bassnectar in that way

  • Jeremy Fenner

    I preordered one of the album bundles and one of the new T-shirts and it says that they are still processing 🙁 please help! It’s been over a week and they still haven’t shipped.

    • Shawn Haught

      Least you were able to preorder or even order. I tired with a gift card and my friends card and was told both times it wasn’t on their end. So I had to go and download for free instead of giving nectar what he deserves.

      • Chris Basscrew

        Shawn, what gift card are you referring to? And who did you speak with? Need more info here buddy 🙂

        • Shawn Haught

          i tried using a visa gift card, bought at city market which is a kroeger company. wouldnt allow me to order the super deluxe package before it sold out. Since the web site wouldnt allow me to order what i wanted both times im stuck with just the album, even though i wanted the tshirt and vinyl that came with some packages. Then i tried using my buddies debit card to get one of the lesser packages but still got same message, unauthorized by bank. i spoke with Alex from basscrew and he sent me a link for the cd, but still have not been able to make any purchases from the web site.

          Thank you for your email.

          We are very sorry to hear you are experiencing problems placing on order on our web store. As the problem appears to be with your payment method – has you contacted your bank to see if there are any issues with your account?

          Kind regards,


          first time was a gift card so no bank, second time i just but money into buddies account no idea why a bank would do that.

          • Chris Basscrew

            Did your buddy call his bank? Let me know and I can look into this further.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hi Jeremy! You can email with “NVSB – (you order number)” in the subject line to troubleshoot your order. You should have received an email from Sandbag explaining the deal with the bundles. Let me know 🙂

  • Tim

    Dude, Lorin, this new album is fantastic. Every time you drop something new it blows my mind even harder than what you have done in the past. I honestly have only been listening to your music for about five years now but I cant even express how much joy it brings me, no matter what kind of mood I am in it always makes me feel even better. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you do man. Stay awesome.

  • Dominick Harris

    Please come to Seattle at WaMu Theater or Tacoma Dome for NVSB Tour

  • Jordan

    Disapointed over here in Vancouver 🙁
