Thanks, but I'll pass.  I love collecting records, but the variants are starting to get old.

 

Just the other day, the Dwarves announced a new 10-song record with 5 variants.  10 songs will probably take them about 18 mins.  Close to $30 each just because of colored vinyl and low pressing numbers.

 

Any other collectors feeling the stress of multiple variants?   What's the answer?  I want complete collectIons, but owning 5-6 of the same album seems kinda nuts.  Maybe just buy the rarest one...

@IanRees Would it be possible for the merchlimited bundles to go up for preorder a little earlier this time? That's assuming there will be one. I would have loved the Drug Church bundle but when it went up it was too late to cancel my Merchnow pre-order of the same variant.

I have a strict no double dipping rule and if there's a record I really want that's passed ordering I'll usually buy the cheapest option available unless there's a reasonably priced color way I like. There's no benefit to buying multiple copies of an album in my opinion. To each their own, and I understand people enjoying the collecting aspect (as do I), but there are reasonable limits.

As a fellow long time Masked Intruder fan I have to say No Case isn't my personal favorite on the album (I do like it though).

My personal favorites are Mine All Mine, Just So You Know, Please Come Back and B & E.

If you liked L&OC and II then you should like this too.

I mean, you know you don't have to buy every single variant, right?  I typically buy one copy of an album - The one I'm going to listen to.

Not loving the single on first listen, but I bought the hoodie bundle anyway because this band is a long-time favorite for me and my wife (and she'll love the hoodie).  Hopefully a proper tour is in the works.

They're on tour with The Interrupters and Ratboy this spring around the same time the album drops. I'd guess with just the 3 on the bill MI should get a longer time slot.

This tour doesn't come through Seattle or anywhere near the PNW.  Therefore, it's not proper!

As one of the dudes who recorded this album I agree about "No Case"! For those worried, it's not indicative of the rest of the record (just like "Take What I Want" on the last EP). I think "All Of My Love" is my fav.
