"Daddy, will you tell me the story about the chickens again?"
Inauspiciously, in an off-the-mic comment, begins the wonderful opus of Consolers of the Lonely, the critically-lauded, fan-adored, Grammy Award-winning sophomore LP from the beloved quartet known as the Raconteurs.
Before surprise releases were common, the Raconteurs ambushed the world with the sudden, unannounced release of Consolers of the Lonely on March 25th, 2008… a time when coordinating a worldwide physical and digital surprise release was even less easily accomplished than it is today.
Internally referred to as “The Plug-Ins” at Warner Brothers so as to prevent information leaking, the album takes its title from an inscription on the frieze of a Washington D.C. post office and finds the Raconteurs at their mightiest, exploring what it means to be a rock band in the classic sense, full-on bombastic horn arrangements and gut-wrenching murder ballads sit side-by-side and while the swagger and confidence of riffs and licks for days firmly establish this album as one of the pre-eminent releases of the aughts.
To celebrate ten years since the release of Consolers of the Lonely, Third Man Records is beyond honored to reissue this noteworthy album. Pressed on incredibly unique magnificent copper foil vinyl, this is the first time the double LP has EVER been made available on colored vinyl. Coupled with a slightly re-imagined front cover highlighting new metallic accents to the iconic tintype image (after all, tin IS the traditional gift for a 10 year anniversary), this release was mastered directly from the original 1” master tapes and lovingly pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, Michigan.
For our 7" for this package, we have something very special: the first NEW songs in ten years from recent sessions that will ultimately result in a new Raconteurs album in 2019!! That's right, we're not giving you track titles or even letting your hear a snippet. You'll have to wait until this package hits your doorstep.
The time for you all to get pretty dang excited about what is to come next year begins right... NOW!
Lastly, this very special Vault celebration of all things old and new of The Raconteurs will include a 4"x4" Copper and Black "R" Insignia embroidered patch for your rocker jean jacket and a set of 4 2.5" Brushed Silver stickers featuring art from Consolers of the Lonely.

Frequently Asked Questions
The quarterly Vault packages will ship 6-8 weeks following the most recent payment deadline. The payment deadlines fall on the last days of the deadline month at Midnight CST. Thus, the deadlines are as follows:
January 31 / April 30 / July 31 / October 31
International packages are shipped first, followed by US packages.
Because we produce the exact number of packages for the exact number of Vault members during a given quarter, any payment received after a payment deadline will not be accepted for the previous quarter. Instead, it will automatically be applied to the next quarter of membership.
For example, if you pay after January 31st, your payment will be credited to the next quarter, whose deadline would be April 30th.
Previous packages are not typically available. However, replacement components of previous packages will occasionally be made available in the Vault Novelties online store.

The Vault Novelties shop is a password-protected, Platinum-Vault-members-only, arm of our online store where we will post exclusive products and releases for sale. The items in the Vault Novelties shop are limited and first-come-first-served. Once an item is out of stock, it is unlikely to ever become available again. The same policies for the Third Man Records online store apply to the Vault Novelties shop.
We want our fans to purchase our records for the same reasons we create our records: because we love vinyl, we love music, and we love art. We do monitor eBay, and if we happen across a Vault member who is selling records meant to be exclusive to Vault members, we are at liberty to permanently terminate that Vault member's subscription.
We hope that the common interest Vault members share with one another translates into positive interactions and a good time had by all. If you are experiencing harassment by another Vault member, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Screenshots of interactions in question and a fair and detailed description of the incident/s will make it easier for us to address the issue.
