United Nations have run into distribution problems with their debut full length online at MySpace. According to a new interview, stores are refusing to carry the album due to the artwork:

We worked [on the cover art] with this British anarchist artist named James Cauty, and he did all this great stuff. But it had some copyright issues, and that's why all the distributors and stores refuse to carry it. We have 1,000 copies of this album sitting around with artwork that has been banned and we're trying to figure out what to do with those.

The art features imagery similar to the Beatles classic, Abbey Road but with some flaming modifications. You can compare the art with the album artwork here.

The project features Geoff Rickly from Thursday, Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw and Head Automatica, Chree from the Number 12 Looks Like You and Kiss It Goodbye's Eric Cooper. Though originally described as a "grind" side project, many have drawn comparisons to early screamo outfits like Saetia and the Gravity Records roster.
