First edition of the CD is coming in 4 panel EcoWallet with fold out poster and limited edition hand-signed insert.

The Deadfly Ensemble returns with their third album, a kid-gloved punch-up between artsy post-punk and off-kilter chamber-folk and their most frenetic offering to date, replete with cinematic arias, tomahawk-wielding war-marches and dreamy, synth-laden vignettes.

Deadfly vocalist and songwriter Lucas Lanthier has already proven himself to be a renaissance man. Every album from his previous band Cinema Strange, as well as the first two Deadfly Ensemble albums, came well equipped with writings, videos, and artwork courtesy of Mr. Lanthier himself. An Instructional Guide... keeps up the tradition, furnishing fans with a richly textured album package that includes a fold- out poster with pages of the weirdly fantastic lyrics that have made Lanthier's projects famous AND a limited edition insert signed by the entire band!

The music on An Instructional Guide... recalls some of the bombast and energy of his earlier Cinema Strange works, moving The Deadfly Ensemble into a new phase of snarling literary art-rock mischief. They can still include themselves amongst a lineage of Weimar-era nightlife and even vaudevillian jazz performers, but the artistic developments are Dada chaos and sardonic brain teasers. Imagine that David Tibet took the Current 93 crew into a tunnel of love boat ride maintained, decorated and administered by the Virgin Prunes, and when they emerged they holed up in a New England lighthouse until an album was born from their quivering loins. And what the hell, the lighthouse was haunted...
