Have you mailed out the for the boats preorders?
- Asked by donerightdiscountflooring
I was going to make an update on ‘For The Boats’ this week and just talk in general how we plan on doing pre-orders going forth. So, now is probably as good a time as ever to do that. The pressing plant has pushed back completion to mid-July on ‘For The Boats’ so obviously we’re a bit frustrated over here considering test presses were approved in late April. ‘Chicago Bowls’ tests were approved three weeks before ‘For The Boats’ and we got Bowls vinyl on 6/6. So, we were logically expecting ‘For The Boats’ to arrive in late June but that’s not going to be the case.
All this to say we are done with early pre-orders. From here on out we will not be running pre-orders til we have vinyl in house or at least know that vinyl is done and being prepared to ship to us. The good news is that pre-orders will ship out quicker. The bad news is you’ll have to wait longer for us to release the album to you digitally. It is what it is, we’re still going to run pre-orders and instant downloads a month before the official release date. But, I’m tired of the long waits and answering loads of questions about when stuff is going to ship and apologizing ad nauseum. It’s just not the way we’re going to do things anymore. So, there you go.
As always, thanks for the support. It’s a learning process right now as vinyl is booming and little labels like us seem to be getting the shaft. We’ll adapt and move forward, no other choice! Thanks for sticking with us! Email us with any questions you have, we’re always here and ready to help!
