inter.funda.stifle is the second full-length album by alternative rock band Fair to Midland. Tracks including "Dance of the Manatee," "Vice/Versa," "A Seafarer's Knot," "The Walls of Jericho," "Kyla Cries Cologne," "When the Bough Breaks" and "Upgrade^Brigade" were re-recorded for their later album and major label debut, Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True.

The album features four instrumental songs as independent tracks: "Preambles in 3rd Person," "Cipieron," "Inter.Mission" and "When the Bough Breaks." All of them except for "Preambles in 3rd Person" were re-recorded and used later as instrumental segues for their major debut album.


It was announced on July 23, 2009 that Fair to Midland is reissuing the release exclusively through their band merchandise site upon its creation.[4] It was reissued on August 18, 2009 from the band's newly launched merch site.[5] They announced that it would be a very limited reissue of about 1000 copies, the first 100 being signed by the band.
