Listen to preview clips for Even If It Kills Me
There seems to be a mini-site for Even If It Kills Me at Sony Music Japan. On the site they have some preview clips for the songs on the album, which you can find by clicking on Disco and then picking the album (or just use this direct link). Thoughts?

Pre-order Even If It Kills Me!
There's only about two weeks till the new album is out!! How exciting!

I've added a few more pre-order links to the homepage of the site. Some new special offers have popped up. If you pre-order from the Motion City Soundtrack online store the first 500 orders get a signed insert and you also get the opportunity to purchase a limited edition Even If It Kills Me t-shirt. If you pre-order from Smartpunk or Interpunk you also get a signed insert while supplies last. Of the three, MCS's online store is the cheapest option.

Also, if you're just trying to find the cheapest place to get it, it looks like Best Buy will have the CD on sale for $9.99. I'll keep you posted if I find anywhere that is cheaper.
