  1. Soon. eOne doesn't usually have a dedicated webstore link for pre-orders but I'm sure general online outlets will have links up soon. http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/high-on-fire-to-release-electric-messiah-album-in-september/
  2. Out on Relapse Records Cover by Arik Roper Engineered by Jack Endino PO links are coming soon... they say.

    That's interesting. My copy from TMR was padded on both sides with 12" cardboard squares. They had the TMR logo printed on them and everything.

    Ordered black copy from TMR on 4/20 and received it yesterday. Mentioning only in case anyone cares to gauge the shipping versus ordering time.

  8. Did they really have to build a piece of furniture for this? Did they really have to release this at any rate? Every piece of vinyl in this that is in its own jacket could have been release individually. Price is a joke.

    I'm sure its a number rounded down to the most accurate clean and even milestone number. I doubt any of the numbers reported for any records sales are every precisely the actual number i.e. 11,376 or 24,894, etc. EDIT: Also, this: https://www.billboard.com/biz/billboard-charts-legend Scroll down to Award Certification Levels >Albums chart Poor bastards. They won't be able to give those away while collector's still believe greens are floating around.

    I'm willing to bet that the digital sales are in fact included also.

    I believe for a long time the model has been "# ordered by distributors = number sold and counted by Billboard." I think that is still the model.

    I actually feel like its the opposite of your final assessment. This actually feels like it focused more on a gimmick of the release and the gimmick of a special variant cover and vinyl split color for a 1K piece limitation and then the gimmick of another less limited variant of green "bcuz WeED!" I don't have a problem with multiple variants in vinyl color but I think the practice of tiered limitation is stupid. Why not just keep pressing all three colors? Why need a special handpicked record store variant and then another plentifulish but still limited variant that we have no idea where they are or how many we'll get and stores don't get the amount they ordered blindly. When you announce a new LP and put up a pre-order people have something to look forward to. They can gauge whether they need to pre-order or whether the numbers are plentiful enough to end up in local shops (regardless of variant) and then they can choose with notice how they plan to pick up the release. They can know the specification of the format (single or 2x or 2x LP or +7" and the like). They can ask their local store to special order if they weren't going to already. We can't rely on the channels of distribution for vinyl records to be as liquid and palatable to surprises as they were in the 60's, 70's and 80's. The economy just doesn't support that anymore and the record industry doesn't have the capital to gamble with anymore. When you release a bands' music, the more info your potential customer has ahead of time and the more notice they have of it coming, the better it is for everyone. Its cute. They snuck it out under our noses. Next time just tell us you've got a new record and let fans plan on acquiring it.
