  1. Talbot just sent out a newsletter & included an update on the E2000 & YPAA reissues. HUM RE-ISSUES: YES, IT’S STILL HAPPENING… Happy to let you know that we are back into this project. It got delayed a bit due to malaise. Currently we are working through an issue with a portion of the test pressings. In the interest of best fidelity, both Electra 2000 and You’d Prefer an Astronaut will be offered as 180g double LPs at 45 rpm. So that’s 8 total sides of records, by my math. We had issues with one of these sides and are working with RTI to sort it out. Once resolved, we’ll be ready to announce a pre-order date. We will, of course, let you know in all of the usual places when that day comes. Thank you for your patience with us/me.

  2. Well yeah, this is a big factor in releases these days. Not to bring it up again, but I got kicked from the Holy Fawn discord for sharing the pressing info (not images). The band responded to me saying the labels all wanted it that way. My conjecture: All the other dealers (Hard Times, Indies, whatever) have it in their contract to not reveal before hand. 1) To increase FOMO, to increase the chance you'll just buy the first variant that you see or gets dropped on VC. If all the links are right there nice and tidy in front of you, you're willing to take the time to get the prettier/cheaper one. 2) To make it less clear how easy it is to get the record. Here we are, all begging friends with tickets to pick us up a copy, all by guaranteeing that it will sell out at FF. Then when the announce for any others come later, we'll both be happy that there are options and they'll have 1-2 less variants to sell through. 3) Reinforces the "go visit the label IG/FB/Twitter", that's where you get the information, not through some random VC forum post that's better put together than what the Intern did in 2 days.

  3. Can't we all just have our own opinions without trying to be the most clever at shitting on another person? I'm not on anyone's side in this debate. There just seems to be a lot of wasted energy here. I guess it's just the internet... Be kinder, folks. I hope Topshelf can pull themselves outta this mess.

  6. Some dipshit Redditors will cry that it requires too much flipping and isn’t practical to have at 45 RPM. (As if anything about this hobby is practical.)

  9. Thank you. Appreciated. Keep me posted. And no worries if not able to. I attended last year's FF and it was a bit of a hassle to get vinyl there. Luckily for us, we drove to AL, so it wasn't too big an issue traveling back. I'm bummed I can't attend this year but things in life are in the way with family health issues and work.

  10. Got an ad for them on IG a month or so back with the lead single. Listened to and while plenty of other bands sound like them, something still sets them apart. Been waiting for the whole album to drop, but otherwise enjoying every album they've put out thus far.

  17. This repress completely flew under the radar for me, but apparently this local shop has it up for pre-order, and is evidently part of a bigger release. I'm assuming this is the indie release variant? Stoked RELEASE DATE | October 28, 2022 https://loudpizza.com/products/a-day-to-remember-common-courtesy

  18. The green vinyl for “Expert in A Dying Field” was delivered to me on Monday! I’ve been spinning it ever since and it’s fantastic! I saw the Beths in Detroit about a month ago and they blew me away.

  21. Let's do the random drawing. DM me if you want in and clarify if you want Dead Poetic, Life In Your Way, or both). To clarify, if you win the first drawing on Friday of FF, you will not be eligible for the second drawing on Saturday.

  22. Oh lord if you think "ignorant" is an insult no wonder this whole thing that has nothing to do with you is triggering. Holy shit 😂

  23. You know how I said I feel like people did not read Topshelf's entire statement... Well... I don't want to call you out but they're literally dealing with their own problems and they have funds set aside for an emergency because they have successfully been around that long. You might want to tone down your ignorance and take the time to read the links before commenting because you missed the mark with everything you've said.

  25. They literally cannot make money for the foreseeable future. They have a staff and royalties to pay. The way they make money is currently locked up from them and it's of no fault of their own. Kevin says in the post they were going to drive out and move their shit, but were told they can't get their shit. One month of zero income for small businesses is enough to press the panic button and start laying people off. This is a totally appropriate time to ask for help. Labels and bands have Kickstarted at way way less deserving times than TSR right now. It's really fucking weird to see someone questioning the morality of this.

  27. The album is incredible as expected. I got to see them in Philly last night and it was a treat. If you haven't seen them yet, make sure you can the next chance you get.
