$225 for 7 records isnt terrible, especially since it's limited to 150 pressings and has a ton of bonus stuff

The poster is signed in the Die Hard edition. There will be some more versions coming (announced this week), as this one is the ultimate. Those who can't afford can nab one of the cheaper ones.

Knowing Devy, it'll definitely be signed. He doesn't skimp on giving a ton of cool bonus shit in these box sets either.

Jumping on this if I can. Getting back from the Philippines the week before so it may not fit in the budget.

This is the special addition though, no?

There is going to be another pressing withought the extras right?

Yes, this is the Die Hard edition. There will be other "lesser" versions. We will announce them all this week.

If they're doing more versions I'll probably just wait to hear that they've pressed a run of Alien LPs and buy one singly.

For any assholes out there, you could totally buy this for $225 and sell it for $600 on ebay a few weeks later when they sell out!

Yeah, thumb, Blood Music releases cool shit like this all the time and they always up an article on sputnik. They did an awesome maudlin of the Well boxset last year, and Lykathea Aflame vinyls.

Hence why the info for the box set is on a Facebook page called 'Blood Music'.

How much will those single editions cost? I'd rather like a copy of City.

Singles will not be cheap as we had to rip apart the box set to do this, which cost us money. Not only that, but everything is still using the highly professional remastering and new art work. Cost for the single LPs is 25 and cost for Alien is 30.

90% of box sets now shipped. We've got quite a list of positive endorsements here, positive notes from around 100 people already. This sold out just before pre-orders ended.

Thanks to all of you who helped support!
