  1. petition your local congressman to get this released early so the national guard can use it as a crowd dispersal tool by playing it in public spaces.
  2. I didn't go extreme with the sub so I'll be getting the sub version of hinterkaifeck but not the self titled. A little bummed if they are actually doing special versions of re-issues just for the extreme subscription cos I was hoping to snag every variant of the 2020 reissue of leaving n this will preclude that. I gave up on the legrand society about five years ago after enemies list got to the point where they stopped putting out albums and the flenser started picking up and releasing their catalogue. They never ended up following through on the club t-shirt did they? Last thing I actual
  3. Yeah I just reread the details onthe series 2 subscription n it definitely mentions a gatefold I have no idea which images theyll be using though. Could be the enemies list cd cover, the enemies list ltd edition cover, the first edition box cover or maybe even the pictures from the inner sleeves from the 1st edition just done on card. Also side note theyve revealed the b side to hinterkaifeck is an etching of the runes from the cover.
  4. yeah its been oop for a while and it took a while to come back due to the level of production the set takes. As far as I'm aware nothings remastered and the book remains the same. I half remember seeing something about the discs being housed in a gatefold inside the box this time but I'm sticking to my OG version.
  5. Giles Corey DLP & Book re-issue and Hinterkaifeck LP pre-orders go live this Friday at 10am Pacific time along with a new Giles long sleeve.
  6. They deffo did signed sets for ellipsis and live at the roundhouse but they didn't for Balance and nothing for this one it seems. I've got so many signed bits n bobs from them over the years I'm not all that fussed this isnt. This is the first time I've seen them sell an album on cassette.
  7. yeah my issue was that Si had been touting this album as a guitar heavy affair via social media during the recording process last year and then we got a track with electronic steel drums. Imagine dragons was my first thought too. Still the track they released today (End Of) is a lot closer to what I want from a biffy album in 2020. Really enjoyed a lot of Balance, Not Symmetry last year but Elipsis was pretty dire they've changed a lot in the eighteen years I've been following em, as long as we get a few riffs and some tracks over 3 minutes I'll be pleased.
  8. first single was utter gash the second track is pretty good. Went for the deluxe boxset version but if this is as spotty as ellipsis this will be the last biffy album I'll preorder
  9. Happy to hear Bloodflowers is coming out. If memory serves the last two years The Cure RSD releases got standard black issues a few months after the picture discs came out and I'll happily grab that over a picture disc any day. Outside of that the only thing that vaguely interests me is the Biffy Clyro 7" but I'm not willing to camp out for that. I also find it a bit greasy that the label is releasing a single that's A-Side was part of a charity compilation where their name was probably a big draw, hope some money goes to tiny changes from these RSD sales at least. They also are ge
  10. 2nd Midwife preview track is up on youtube and streaming platforms I believe. For the lazy but interested:
  11. Yeah the original box was commanding a massive price but they rereleased it last year n its available for about £250 now. Annoyingly they reissued bloody kisses before announcing the box which I immediately snagged. I didnt bother with the box cos im too lazy to take in duplicates to trade in and apparently that may have been a smart move as a lot of folk on the thread for that set had issues with duplicated discs etc. They have just released World Coming Down through runout groove but for some reason theyre trying to sell that for £40 when bloody kisses was £20. Shame because that
  12. Without old tugjob around to give minute by minute updates on how many copies of each variant are left at different retailers is it even worth it?
  13. City Burials is the band’s eleventh studio album and its first since 2016’s haunting The Fall of Hearts. With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials represents the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life. Compiled into one of their most important modern works and statements to date, the finely-honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us thr
  14. Just an FYI to all you fellow Vennart fans theres a new single called Dick Privilege, full things streamable on his site. Video/Download/7" Gammon coloured vinyl drops tomorrow 9AM (I'm assuming that's GMT/UK time zone). The track is absolutely filthy sounding. Reminds me of Oceansize's rhythm section's side project KONG. Not sure if this means another album is on the way, I know Biffy spent most of last year doing that score and recording album 8 with a view to that dropping this year but they still record in the studio as a three piece as far as I understand. Doesn't make t
  15. Checked this out as these guys are headlining an alldayer in London in two weeks. Somehow this kind of reminds me of Antidotes-era foals sans vocals. Gonna check the other 5 acts I don't know before I commit to going but it was a pretty chill listen.
  16. If I hear anything about a 3rd run or a reasonable priced second hand one I'll drop you a line.
  17. Not gonna lie before Mamaleek & Giles Corey were confirmed I was still weighing up resubbing just for Midwife. Her debut Like Author, Like Daughter is just perfect. Highly recommend everyone checks it out. Think its OOP now and I broke my "No more pricey imports" rule for it. Was very happy when they announced she'd signed to the label. Check it here if you like: https://midwifemusic.com/album/like-author-like-daughter Between this and the sprain debut it might be a more mellow year overall for the sub but I'm cool with that.
  18. Series 2 Update As Midwife, Denver based multi-instrumentalist Madeline Johnston plays what she describes as “Heaven Metal,” or emotive music about devastation. Johnston began developing the experimental pop project in 2015 while a resident of beloved Denver DIY space Rhinoceropolis. The venue/co-op started in the early aughts and nurtured local artists until 2016, when its doors were shuttered due to high tensions surrounding the safety of DIY spaces (not coincidentally following the horrific Ghost Ship fire in Oakland). Residents were displaced around Denver and artists like Midw
  19. Its a total guess its probably somewhere in the thousands, the only way to get any clarification would be to email the label directly and hope someone gets back to you. Then you have to hope that the number they give you stays the same, its not uncommon practice for an item to be put up for pre-order with a limit to have its limit increased and with them not posting numbers publicly its even easier for them to do this. Ultimately just like Tim said above if you get into this hobby of collecting records buy what you like and don't worry about value or scarcity. You never know what w
  20. As a general rule the easiest way to find out is to check a website we probably all frequent called Discogs.com it lists every version of a release and often data like pressing numbers are posted on each version where available. That said I had a cursory glance on your behalf and found that whilst it's listed as limited no numbers are stated. As Tim has said there's no perfect way to calculate correct numbers if a label or company don't advertise them. If they do advertise a number then even that is to be taken with a grain of salt for the reasons above. There's always a level
