I will be buying all 3 of them signed. (I really hope they don't sell out with preorders)
Also that video is hilarious.
Fuck that, shit will sell out in 5 mins and 200 of the 300 will be on ebay within minutes.
buncha savages in this town.
and the vinyl will go even faster.
Must find how out how Finnish times coincide with Eastern US time...
Digging: The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Digging: Autechre - Tri Repetae
Finnish time is GMT +2
So it's 3AM on the east coast of the US
getting all 3. hopefully signed. :]
Awesome. Now I can finally get PtS on cd.
most professional news title i've ever seen in my life
IN MY LIFE
Yes, the CDs come out at 3AM eastern USA time. Sorry about that, but there is not really a perfect worldwide time for us to release them. I still think if you order them when you wake, you should be without problem!
Why only 100 each of the LPs? I'm in no way knowledgeable of the processes or costs involved with a project like this, but you could sell many, many more than that, and I'm a bit worried I won't be able to get a copy.
Also, I wish we knew the prices
We already released these albums on colored vinyl as a deluxe box set with lots of extras (Secret Song 7", etc.). Those are completely gone and out-of-print. These black vinyl LPs were announced alongside the box set but are only now being made available without the extras.
CD costs will be 12€ per disc shipped worldwide. LPs will be 40€ (without shipping) for the pair.
Hey BloodMusic, thanks for posting here!
Do you guys accept PayPal?
Thanks for the interest!
Leaving Your Body Map, that's all I want.
Digging: Downer - Downer
will antithetic be getting any of these?
nevermind. i read words, and now i know
This is certainly very exciting. Knowing the hardcore melvins already have the colored LPs, hopefully I have a crack at one of these ones.
fuck you, i'm buying two copies of each now
I....I....I only have The Doors, DSOTM, Asia, and Traced in Air on vinyl.
I need this.
Shut up and take my money
aden get on msn right now mister! >:[
I had a short conversation with Antithetic Records, and they said they'll be releasing Bath and Leaving Your Body Map on vinyl after they finished up the special edition set they did in partnership with Blood Music. Looking forward to that even more so.
Digging: Mike Oldfield - Ommadawn
uurgghh really want these, at the very least Bath and Part the Second, not sure if I'll get them though.
Digging: King Creosote - From Scotland With Love
Does this mean I'm getting my preorder Bath and LYBM LPs soon? The ones I preordered like 6 months ago? :P
christ i want these realelaya abada
Siddha, the vinyl box sets are shipping from the factory at the beginning of next week. We've posted nearly everyday on Facebook about the status of what's been going on.
Sorry, didn't know you were on Facebook.
^ didn't know that, either. would've been nice haha
BTW -- To someone who asked earlier.
We will have the CDs exclusively. We will have limited vinyl and Antithetic will have limited vinyl as well.
So there's more than your 100 copies of the standard black vinyls?
Yep, there will be 100 copies from each of us. Then, the pressing is finished.
I pre-ordered the bath/leaving your body map/secret song box set back in october or november. I can't wait to finally have these on vinyl, plus I get an awesome motw t-shirt!
Box sets are slated to ship from the factory on Monday! Should be in your hands shortly.
And I've got the T-shirts here in front of me. Looking awesome!
Everything goes live at 10AM Finnish time, tomorrow (March 1st).
Check your time zone, as it correlates to Helsinki:
ugh. staying up till 3am is gonna be tough when i have to be at work at 8. guess i don't really NEED signed copies though
Sorry there. Of course, we wish everyone could have access at the same human time, but we are in Finland, and so we're putting them live once we're awake and ready. I'm thinking you will still surely get copies of the unsigned CDs if you order when you wake up.
yeah it's cool, i understand. you're probably tired of repeating yourself by now. really, i'm not too concerned about the signed ones anyway. let someone who really wants em have em. i'm sure i'll get unsigned ones of each, though i have the first repress of bath/lybm. gotta have the unreleased songs. gotta
PtS + Bath *SIGNED* secured!
Now I can go back sleeping. Great job btw BloodMusic, making sure us sputnikers and music enthuiasts are up to date.
Great work, Sound :] And thanks for supporting!
We've sold already more than 200 discs in 30 minutes!
And more than half the signed ones are already sold out... :D
Great to hear. Tried to be as sharp as possible and even some minutes after 10AM my order was #94 haha
Yeah, we're very excited! Only 20 signed copies of "Bath" left. The signed copies are surely gone today...
Months of work condensed to a single moment :]
Got the signed PtS! Congrats, BloodMusic, on a great reissue.
Thanks awal! Really glad that everyone seems to be getting what they wanted. We did not know what to expect and neither did the people who seemed to be angry that we hadn't budgeted enough for everyone!
Hope when the Americans arise, they wake to find the last stock of signed discs awaiting, and we can call this a day :]
can't afford all three, but i got part the second signed! :]
Well, 4 copies of Bath left! Might wanna take out a second mortgage :]
but i have kids to feed! :[
well i don't really, obviously. if this was a month later i'd be having all of them due to my birthday being on the 27th :]
Wow... Just a bit more than 100 copies of each CD left. Thanks all!
Release date is in two days, and CDs will begin shipping then.
We've got roughly 50 copies left of each disc if anyone is still interested.
I live in the United States...how long would you expect shipping to take?
Yazz, unfortunately I can't predict it exactly. Due to the high number of orders now, it would go out next week and take around 1-2 weeks to arrive.
Gonna destroy my LPs with unending spins in a few days, oh yes. At least until my adrenaline wears out. Then again that won't be long at this point in the game.
Jruined, thanks tons for the support!!
To all else:
All pre-orders were shipped... including LPs, it was almost 1000 records!
We are down to our last small boxes of these CDs. There are only 28 copies of "Part the Second" left!
"Bath" and "LYBM" trail only a few copies behind.
part the second is outselling bath and lybm? what???
cause of the bath/lybm vinyl i assume... even though pts was on vinyl first...
ps the box sets turned out really nice. love that my name is in it
mine arrived today! it took quite a knock and the case has a crack but the insides are fine, i can always recase it. thanks blood music! :]
Grimlin, thanks tons for the support and kind words!
Yup, PtS sold out of the signed version first. It's also been outselling Bath/LYBM the whole time. I assume it has to do with it never being on CD before.
Glad they arrived mostly safely, sorry to hear about the case crack :/ I suppose that is par for the course with CDs. Either spend loads on shipping in heavy packaging or brave it with the trusty bubble mailer. So far we've only heard reports of good landings otherwise though...
Spin them well, everyone!!
We have now less than 25 Part the Second on CD and a tiny bit more of Bath and LYBM.
We also have about 50 copies of Bath/LYBM on LP.
We've got 19 Part the Second CDs left! Dayam.
Got mine in the mail today! Thanks a lot!
I got mine yesterday. So glad I bought these.
Thanks all! Glad to hear all the great news.
We do only have 7 Part the Seconds left and ~15 of Bath and LYBM! Jee!
There is one copy left of Part the Second!!
Damn, tough Q.
My Fruit Psychobells is the only one I was able to physically track down before releasing these, so I grew a supreme affinity for it. It's a lot rawer but also also the most metal one, which speaks to my tastes more.
Leaving Your Body Map has the three best motW tracks: Gleam In Ranks + the two Riseth He tracks. It used to be my favorite, but I find now the album doesn't flow as well as the others track-to-track.
As far as quality of songwriting, Bath is tops. Heaven And Weak, Girl With a Watering Can, and Birth Pains of Astral Projection are the pinnacle of song arrangement.
I like Part the Second, but it's the least for me, despite Laboratories of the Invisible World being a truly incredible song. The rest is good but sometimes a bit jazzy for my tastes.
Each speaks to me in a different way. Maybe I'd call Bath my favorite.
Def check it! We're gonna re-release it later this year, BTW.
The production on My Fruit Psychobells is pretty bad, but it's definitely an interesting listen. And Blight of River Systems is a ridiculously fun/bouncy track by their standards.
my fruit psychobells is pretty underrated and definitely worth a listen :]
3 copies of Bath and 4 of LYBM left til we put this thing back to rest.
CDs SOLD OUT! Thanks all. :D
