The Strokes’ fifth album, Comedown Machine, arrives on March 26 via RCA Records and the New York five-piece has just announced two exclusive pre-order bundle packages for the upcoming LP.

For $45, fans can secure a vinyl copy of Comedown Machine, a download code for an mp3 version of the record, a 7-inch of the band’s back-to-basics new single “All the Time” that comes with an exclusive bonus B-side, the new “Script Logo” t-shirt, and an instant mp3 download of “All the Time.” The first 1,000 people to pre-order this offer will get a limited-edition, individually numbered 180g clear vinyl edition of the LP. After those clear copies run out, standard black 180g vinyls will be shipped. Pre-orders can be placed here.

Anyone less concerned with analog can plunk down $40 on the CD bundle, which comes with a CD copy of Comedown Machine, the “All the Time” 7-inch featuring the exclusive bonus cut, the “Script Logo” t-shirt, and an instant “All the Time” mp3 download. Fans can pull the one way trigger on that offer here.

Standard pre-order deals for vinyl, CD, and mp3 versions of the Angles follow-up are also available, priced between $10 and $20. Take it or leave it.
