Look, I get it. At earlier points in my life, especially when I was a broke teen, paying for entertainment was annoying and, at the time in my opinion, not fair. Yet as I’ve grown up, and even more so

I prefer the “grabbed a copy”, “it shipped”, and “got my copy” posts because I can update my spreadsheet of people who preordered, grabbed a copy, are awaiting shipment, and had it delivered. 

At this point, they ought to just start from scratch and produce a quality product because I have a feeling they are going to be going through a lot of refunds for poor quality.  Such a shame that they couldn't get their shit together for such what could have been a very cool release.

Can anyone comment on which versions of this release are affected? All of them? The original box set? The revolver stuff? etc. 

I guess I have just lost track of what was happening where.

Well there's only really two variants. The smokey black, available separately or in the boxset, and the revolver colors. So I'd see no reason they didn't go 100% in on this new plant, which apparently is Gold Rush Vinyl in Austin.

I figured this delay was going to happen though. I'll remain optimistic because it sounds like they are at least doing QC on records, but if it's on that cheap Audio-Technica, then that might mean nothing ha.

In the meantime, while we discuss vinyl misadventures, a new song premiere is coming soon. Official website is not in Erase me colors anymore, redirects to another domain and promotes the video "Voyeurist". If you will sign up for updates you'll see a text "You are the voyeurist. " lol.

Also coordinates are provided: 27.974968 -82.454656. 
If you google them you'll get Robles park in Florida. Underoath band members are from FL as far as I know.

Live performance?

 

I can imagine it: they'll build a stage and at the time when the crowd will come, Aaron will show naked ass and scream: "HAHA you all are the VOYEURISTS now!"

Robles Park is a couple blocks from the coffee shop Tim run's with the drummer from Anberlin. Looks like they're live-streaming themselves in the studio.

Email update:

 

"2020 was a difficult year for everyone and we are so incredible sorry that the delay in the vinyl has only added to that. Gold Rush, the pressing plant, had everything you could ever imagine happen that pushed the press date on our vinyl back. COVID infections, machines breaking, bacteria in the water and raccoons in the factory are only just a few of the things that happened in 2020 to delay.

However, it looks like we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The pressing plant started pressing last night and has one machine specifically dedicated to pressing our vinyl. Because they are US-based and so is our fulfillment team, we do not need to wait for all vinyl to be pressed to start shipping and instead will be sent on a weekly basis. This way orders can be shipped out quickly. 

The pressing plant is starting with Lost in the Sound of Separation so if the only vinyl in your order is that, you’ll receive it first. They’ll then press Define The Great Line then They’re Only Chasing Safety and finally, the box sets of all 3. If you ordered more than one record the order will be held until all items in the order are pressed.

It will take a few days to know when the first batch is shipping but as we get more info, we will make sure to send more updates. 

We are so sorry to bring one of the many 2020 headaches into 2021 but are doing everything we can to get this corrected."

 

They also included an image from the plant. The records are definitely standard clear with black smoke. In the photo it's a copy of LITSOS and they are holding the jacket and, interestingly, what appears to be an insert or sleeve with the artwork from the deluxe CD.

Looks like a printed inner sleeve to me. But I would much rather it be a printed insert.

Another update from Revolver if you ordered from there.

 

Thank you again for your UNDERØATH purchase

We would like to give you a bit of an update regarding the delays of the UNDERØATH LPs. At this point, we expect to receive the LPs within the next 6 weeks. If this estimate stands, we will begin shipping orders the first week of April. We will continue to keep you posted when we receive more information on your orders. 

 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and well! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to

Update directly from Underoath, too. Much more specific:

 

"We know that you're patiently waiting your vinyl and more updates from us so we wanted to share an update from Gold Rush (the pressing plant) that we received today.

The first batch of vinyl (which includes some but not all of the box set orders) was packed and ready to go to the fulfillment center, based in Austin as is Gold Rush, last Thursday but was unable to go out before the storm hit. Once it's safe to do so and power is restored, it will be sent out

--

From Gold Rush:

As you have seen in the news, Austin and Texas have been devastated this week by the unprecedented snow storm, bringing record low temperatures, dangerous ice, and massive and extreme power outages. Our staff and the factory are safe, but 100% of our staff has been without power since Monday morning, freezing. Austin expects it will be Friday at the earliest, before power is restored. The factory seems to be in good shape thanks to the many preparations we made, however Austin Energy is forcing shut downs, you can read more about it here.

The team had been running around the clock to get records out the door before this happened, we are committed to putting in the extra hours when we can get back into the factory, to put your project back on track. The wonderful vinyl community has offered support, but they are already at full capacity and can not take on any of our projects. 

We appreciate your support and understanding, and can't wait to be working with you again shortly."

 

TL;DR - If you ordered directly from UO, you might actually get something this month??
