Hey all, this is my first post, i made an account just to post this.
I did a quick search to see if anybody else had posted this yet, but apparently not, or I'm bad at searching.
I just received my cassette of "I drove all night", and looking at the back, noticed a barcode. After thinking back to the whole "tastyvein" thing, I quickly hopped onto google and started messing around...
The barcode is in "code 128" format, and after some (painful) translation, the barcode spells out "coverupfilm.com"
coverupfilm.com ... The website is essentially nothing, saying only "recently registered" at namecheap.com. I don't know where this is going, but I'm going to keep looking.
Considering the barcode itself had a URL in it, i assume the numbers underneath have something special as well. (1155161 729520)
Just thought it was a neat thing to point out.
UPDATE: The numbers definitely have a message, a fitting one at that.

what I still find odd is the mispelling of "KEEP QUIET" as "KEEP QBIET". I even figured it was a U=B thing, and tried searching "coverbpfilm.com", but this also yeilded nothing.
I feel tempted to check the barcodes on my other merch now...
Vinyl--at least the first pressing--doesn't seem to have one.
In retrospect, it actually seems obvious that the cassette barcode might be faked--there's no intention of them selling it in stores (unlike the CDs) due to its limited nature; and also there's no two numbers beside it.
EDIT: Also, I didn't see anything interesting about the other barcodes; they seem legit.
While we're on the subject: I asked if there was anything "hidden" in the cassette artwork at MAGFest and all they told me was that the middle number on the sign is 525.
