“And now for the news we hope you’ve all been waiting for, the album release and pre-order info for the expanded “More Miserable Than You’ll Ever Be”.
Let’s get something out of the way right out of the gate as we’ve been getting a lot of questions about this. There are 2 ways to get the album right now. One of them is to go to a concert and buy it directly from Doctor Love himself. He’ll even sign it for you, right on the spot. The other way is to pre-order the album online. You will get an instant download of all the tracks on the 2 CD set, and for those that simply want the CD, the album will begin shipping on April 22, 2014.
So why a pre-order? A couple reasons. The first is to give Mike all the tour support sales he can get for the next month. The second is because we are offering shirts, a 7″ vinyl, a bonus download/CD album “Misery Loves Company” and a hand-made box to store your 7″ vinyl (or whatever you want) in, and all of those things are only going to be made for the people that order them. With that in mind, the vinyl will take roughly 12 weeks to manufacture, but we are hopeful the deluxe packages will ship in mid-June.
The pre-order for all of these packages runs from today, Friday March 28th through Monday, April 21st 2014. Once the pre-order ends, all but the 2 CD set will be pulled from the store. (if we end up with extras of some of the vinyl, stickers, buttons, etc, we reserve the right to put them back in the store at a later date, but for the majority of these items, including the download album, they won’t be available again.)”
Please note: if you do not like the arrangement of these packages, please contact the band and not Down The Line. We have no power over these issues. We don’t necessarily agree with holding unreleased songs captive in a limited edition expensive package. We have raised these issues with bands but they need to hear from you the fans. We are just passing along news that some readers might be interested in.
