    I imagine it went down something like this. ETR: Hey Andy can we press Get Wet and overcharge for gimmicky vinyl variants sourced from CD? AWK: I’d prefer you didn’t. ETR: Well, too bad. We do what we like and we like what we do. AWK: Fair enough.

    PO: Norma Jean All Hail 10/25

    Why does everyone still think they should change their name when they’ve had the same frontman for 16 years and this will be their 7th album with him again? Pretty sure that ship has sailed

    I don't give a shit if they change their name or not as long as they keep pumping out killer albums like they have. Saying they should do anything is dumb, they should do whatever they feel like, people can take it or leave it. The "original" lineup put out one album, if you don't like that all the members are gone retitle the artist on that one album to Luti-Kriss in your mp3 library and move on.

    "Drama". I'd say trying to have your wife killed is a little worse than "drama". Fuck Tim, fuck this band, and fuck anyone who gives them money.

    PO: Norma Jean All Hail 10/25

    Just for the sake of conversation, isn't releasing a song, or songs, before the album release date kind of a new(er) internet-age thing? I know I'm a dinosaur nearing age 40, but "Back when I was a kid..." and CDs were the standard, you had to buy releases blindly. If you were copping on the release date, anyways... Or would they release songs on the radio, just not typically in physical format? Not that shit like Norma Jean was played on any radio, but just in general, I mean. I do remember CD/cassette singles, but I feel like they weren't usually released before the LP, unless they were, and it just wasn't popular amongst me and my group of friends to buy ahead of time... I see someone else pointed out above, and I was going to reiterate what Corey, or the band collectively, addressed the lineup changes in the liner notes of was it Wrongdoers...? Essentially saying that Norma Jean is/has been an evolving family/collective of musicians. I personally don't see the issue, unless the sound is changing dramatically and has no resemblance of what it was previously. Norma Jean has been kicking ass, I don't see why this release would be any different. They've got a solid track record. I'm being old by thinking "You damn kids sure do like to find stuff to complain about!" then I remember that's what the forum and internet are for, to critique and dissect whatever the heck you're looking at. I also really liked the art when I saw it lol I just thought it looked like a bad ass cover. I see most board members also disagree on that.

    I really wouldn't mind if he continued to release a vocal version of an album and an instrumental version of an album. I personally would like both even if I preferred one over the other. Everyone wins.

    First album in a decade from these greasy jersey jackholes. New song "Ruin the Smile" streaming now and physical preorders up via what I assume is their new label, Overlord Records. https://store.overlordrecords.net/

    I'm just sitting here thinking about how, in the last few days, I've given relapse $150 for 5 LPs and a toy.

    Voting with my wallet this time. I'm tired of spending $35+ on single LPs, do that shit 3 times a year and you've already spent over $100 on 3 albums. That's fuckin' bananas. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the indie variant and get it from Bullmoose or something.

    PO: Zao - The Funeral of God (5/3)

    after what we learned on this one, don't know how it's possible without a repeat of this fiasco. the only thing we can think of is a kickstarter type deal for the full amount of the license where if it doesn't fund, it doesn't happen, and nobody is charged until we know the full amount can be handed to the rights owners (which when people see what that amount is will maybe stop giving tragic hero a hard time and realize that they were absolutely bonkers to put their necks on the line to even do funeral in the first place) - hint, the license (not the pressing, the license) is more than was spent to actually make either record in the first place.

    A few years ago I probably would try to cancel my order with Bullmoose and grab this. Now....just doesn't seem worth the hassle. Plus Bull moose has always been good to me, I'd feel like an asshole doing that to them.

    Smartpunk. I bought AJJ's last album from them as well. Though I'm kinda regretting I didn't go with the Urban variant, I got a ton of splatter in my vinyl collection.

    Looks like the $500 deluxe has run out of steam with 981 copies left. Theyre really shooting themselves in the foot on this one. The deluxe is also only available to U.S. customers.

    Oh well, while browsing BullMoose trying to get some free shipping I learned that the tenth Trail of Dead album is coming out in September. Legit didn’t even realize they were still an active band so that’s cool!

    Car CDs

    HELL YES!!! My aux input busted about 7 years ago and I've never had bluetooth. I only listen to CD's in my vehicle. I still burn CD's like it's 2002. So the download code thread in this forum is great for me. The majority of my friends give me their download codes from their newer LPs because I actually use them also. I've got LPs at home, BlueTooth speakers for showering/getting ready or cooking, CDs in my vehicle, and Tapes at work (as well as my computer for bandcamp and podcasts). I have a 10 CD case that I took from a Mercedes rental back in college that I still keep. In that case I have Joy Division "Closer", Tom Petty "Wildflowers", The Get Up Kids "Something To Write Home About", Charles Bradley "Changes", Godspeed You! Black Emperor "Lift your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven" (2 disc), Dengue Fever "Cannibal Courtship", Every Time I Die "Hot Damn!", and Neil Young "After The Gold Rush" There are a ton of other CDs floating around in the vehicle outside of the case (a lot of local stuff), but for the sake of the thread, that's my case of CD's that doesn't leave the vehicle.

    Ordered with a quickness! Seen these guys a few years ago and Jesse was super sick so he said he’d try his best but he maybe only did like one song. After that he said “anybody knows the songs get up here and sing em” I got up and did Grandfather and Like a Cat even though I probably botched the lyrics a bit. Fun show even though I caught whatever Jesse had I was sick for weeks lol

    I'd normally think was paranoia but it seems like this happens every damn time. And I checked the CD, it had media mail as an option the whole time. What a coincidence.

    The only reason the /500 is sold out is because people bought multiple copies of it by accident. I'm sure it'll come back once the multiples are cancelled.

    Now, they send me this email... "What we just sent out about thse being cancelled was wrong. Our distributor said "they were cancelled" and they meant our orders, but we though they meant the items. I will reopen your order for the Church of Misery LP and we will hopefully have them in 5 days or so. Chad " Seems like Chad needs some coffee this morning.

    PO: Zao - The Funeral of God (5/3)

    I may be biased since I went through all the hassle of having the new master done, but I think it sounds great. We had to have this pressed at GZ in the czech republic which I am not a fan of. I have never liked the Direct to Metal cutting they do there and while they DO accept lacquers we had 2 different lacquer cutters refuse to do it if GZ was pressing, so... it was a bit stressful for us. This record is technically about 4 minutes too long to comfortably put on one piece of vinyl without some fidelity problems. we lucked out in that the song that was going to suffer the most "lesser lights of heaven" being at the end of side 1 has almost no low end in it anyway and is KIND of blown out a bit on the original album. so inner groove distortion on any song, THAT was the one to have it happen, so without even shifting songs around, the song that would have suffered the most from a long cut is the song that kind of didn't matter if it did because, it kind of sounds like that anyway. the irony is, the very things we don't like about what the DMM cutting process were already built into the record anyway (mostly the lack of Bass frequencies and a little to much brightness on the top end) . So we didn't lose anything by using this process, there is a distinct lack of low end on the record and the high end is bright, so nothing changed. DMM DOES allow a longer/louder cut which can be more forgiving on the Inner Grooves, and that was what we needed more. overall (and i can say this objectively since i am not ON the album) i think this master sounds WAY better than the CD/Digital versions, there is actually a lot more clarity to everything without sounding drastically different, and when it matters, the quiet parts really get quiet to allow the loud parts to jump out more. -- the rest of the guys all commented on this when they heard the vinyl so it's not just me.
