My Bronx I and III albums came in the post on monday and finally got a chance to spin them today and III sounds so good, glad they finally pressed this on vinyl. If anyone hasn't seen the difference in colours to the Australian press here they are. if anyone picked up II, is it a gatefold like the first press i didn't pick it up as i already own the first one!

Mine showed up in a city 30 miles away, and for 4 days I had to call fed ex because tracking kept saying they had the incorrect address.  Each time I called I gave them the correct one.  Finally got them today, and of course the original address on the package was correct.  God damn fed ex.  

Just got notification that mine have left LA....again.

I and II are literally identical to the original pressings, sans White Drugs logos on back and dated 2017. Haven't compared matrices yet to see if they're the same stampers or not. Will report back.

I is absolutely not identical to the original pressing. Vinyl colors on the US, Australian and first are very different versions of grey/white/marble/swirl. Cover artwork is a little brighter on the newer versions.

II has minor color differences between the original version and US/Australian versions. The last two are almost identical.

Out of all the bands that do this run-and-gun "grab it while ya can!" vinyl horseshit I would expect better from The Bronx. They need to quit fucking around and make these albums readily available already. Dammit.

I really don't think it's a gimmick - a lot of labels keep a certain amount unsold in case of exchanges or other customer issues.

 

As for why these albums continue to be super limited, you're right, they could probably press thousands of them and people would buy them.
