The pressing plant is working away on this release and should have everything shipped out to us in about 2 weeks (max, I believe). I know this has been frustrating for those of you who ordered. It’s frustrating for me when a project runs into a million issues that take time to sort out. My main focus is to make sure this release comes out exactly as we’ve planned. One thing that I was extremely particular about was the pink and green vinyl colors, which took a while for them to match, but as you can see in the picture below, came out perfectly. The pressing plant sent me that picture yesterday, so as far as I know we are in full production now and good to go.

If you’ve e-mailed me in the past week, I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. All e-mails will be responded to by tonight.

Below you will find the gatefold jacket proof and a picture of the half green/half pink LP that the pressing plant sent me yesterday. Hopefully these pictures get you stoked for the release. This record will be WAY worth the wait. UPDATE: this release has a booklet but I can’t format it to post here. Gotta keep some things a surprise!

If you have any questions, concerns, hate, please e-mail me directly: rj@mtsrecords.com

    better get that fixed

  14. and the pink and white swirl?

    nice pics! =D

  15. The record is sold out! We may do a re-pressing in the future, but there aren’t any plans to do so right now. Interpunk.com still has copies of the white/pink swirl: http://interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=181911&

  16. This release can only be shipped to the U.S. and Canada.

  17. It says “Miss” — the low resolution of the proof makes it look like a “K” instead of an “M”

  18. I’ll hopefully get a picture this week from the pressing plant!

  19. Since it’s sold out, will the pink Hot Topic edition still be avaliable?

  20. Hot Topic is doing their own version, separate from ours. Not sure when it will be available.

  21. If you didn’t have a chance to pick up the record from us, here are two sites that still have the pink/white swirl (ltd. 500). They only have a couple copies left so hurry!
