  1. I got mine on the weekend from my local record store in Vancouver (Red Cat Records). I did get them to special order it the day it went up (and sold out) on the Beggars Arkive store, so I'm not sure what distributor stock is looking like right now. What a mess this has been...
  2. I got a tracking number for my box set on Tuesday. It's currently on its way up to Canada. Edit: I ordered from their US merch store.
  3. That's what I'm wondering as well, but we probably won't know until people have it in their hands and can compare. I don't own this album on vinyl yet, but it seems the consensus is the early 45 RPM pressings are vastly superior to the more recent 33 RPM pressings. I've been on the verge of buying the rather pricey 45 RPM version for several months, and this new pressing isn't making the decision any easier...
  4. I emailed David at Suicide Squeeze. He said this isn't a repress of the 45 RPM pressings from 2007-2008, and that "We recut the lacquers at 45RPM and moved to another pressing plant."
  5. Has anyone been able to confirm the latest repress is a repress of the 45 RPM pressings from 2007-2008? The description on the store has the same "vinyl remaster courtesy of Bernie Grundman" sentence that accompanied the 33 RPM represses, but I’m guessing it might’ve been left there by accident.
  6. Mike tweeted back at me that they'll continue investigating shipping costs, but I'm going to assume they are what they are. The Polaroids are already gone, too. I had to sit out on all the vinyl preorders due to shipping costs. Hopefully the black variant makes it over to shops in North America... On the bright side, I finally secured my handwritten lyrics of Music for a Nurse after missing the Demon Joke Pledge!
  7. My copy arrived today on the west coast of Canada ... Unexpected, as it only passed through Illinois two days ago. I ordered right when the 10:00 AM do-over went up and got #732.
  8. Wow ... Leave it to Sandbag to royally fuck this one up. I had it in my cart around 7:10 and it sold out as I was checking out.
  9. I wonder if those who ordered from Arkive right when the link went up on Thursday morning had theirs shipped out immediately by mistake. I ordered early the next morning, and my order's still in processing.
  10. I got my boxed edition in Vancouver yesterday, so that covers both sides of Canada. I ordered from the UK store to ensure I got vinyl made in the EU, but the order still shipped from the US. The center labels indicate they were made in the EU, so perhaps all the boxed edition vinyl were sourced from the same European pressing plant.
  11. I contacted Sandbag about the validity of the 20% off code if I cancel my Firebrand order for Broken and The Fragile and got this reply today: Has anyone canceled their Firebrand order in the last day or two? I'm thinking the rep didn't read my message and thought I wanted to cancel my Sandbag order...
  12. Just noticed the Deluxe Edition page on mwY's store now says "SHIPPING LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL 2015".
  13. Thanks for the link! Grabbed a copy for less than it would've been at the show.
