:( No preorder for an actual copy of the cd . . . or vinyl?? I'm sad, but still excited. At least with the iTunes, it's guaranteed that I get it on the release date, I don't have to rely on shipping or worry about finding it in a store somewhere. . . . plus an extra track, those are some definite pluses.

2 weeks left and I'm definitely counting them down!

Tex, I read your message as worrying it'll be digital release only. Not necessarily directed to you, but the cd is already up for pre-order on amazon, abstractlogix, etc.

But yes, some sort of specialness for the hardcore fans would be appreciated.

We are looking into putting out vinyl. We'll know soon.
We are also in the process of revamping the whole site... the merch store is dragging behind... we will offer something along with the CD, but still undecided. It's taking some time to get the Flecktone Machine back up and in gear, but we are getting there!

Ugh... why do bands do this? I'm paying 50% more to receive a physical copy of the disc and liner notes only to get the incomplete album. I never understood that logic. :(

Probably not the best thread for this, but since it took a preorder/merch turn...

Anyone thought of issuing a nice high quality print with interwoven art from the liner notes of the albums from the original quartet? Would make a nice preorder package with a hypothetical vinyl edition of Rocket Science...or a nice standalone purchase. Just a thought.

Listening to the new album streaming on aol as I type this...can't wait for my physical copy to make it here!

Now that I have received my Itunes preorder, is there anything special for the physical release in the works? The other cds on my shelf will feel lonely without this one and I am sure that the shelf would also love a reunion hippo or an autographed something else to go with the album.
