Brand New’s Devil and God… Canceled?

The net has been bursting at the seams with news that the long-awaited vinyl version of Brand New’s Devil and God… album, set to be released next month by Triple Crown Records, has been canceled. At the same time, another rumor about a different label handling the same release has begun to spread as well.

Here’s what I personally know: the first distributor (an indie) we ordered these from was told me today that it has been canceled. I asked the same question to the distributor that was to provided is with the majority of our copies (and is also one of the major label owned distros) and was told the only change was in the release date…which was the same one we already had, Jan. 12th.

I replied back to the latter and asked if they were completely sure on that and/or if they had already made plans for the Triple Crown copies sold to be replaced with copies from the mystery label or just what the hell is going on. Once I hear back from him, probably Monday, I’ll send out a mass email to all of those who pre-ordered it through us to let you know if we can still get you a record in the same time frame or if we’ll be sending out refunds (or store credit or swaps – its up to each of you, whatever you do is fine by us!).

Because of this, we are looking into introducing a new way of doing pre-orders for music, adopting the model used by Target for video games where for $5 you get reserves your spot in the proverbial line and a $5 gift certificate good towards any future purchase, including for the pre-ordered item. Details being worked out though, so it might be awhile before this goes into effect, if ever.

Hang tight till Monday everyone – once we get the answer, I’ll drop everyone an email and let you know what’s going on. Just to be sure its clear – if its canceled, all pre-orders will be immedately refunded or turned into different records, your choice. 🙂

Alright, time to get the mail ready for tomorrow!

PO: Dear Hunter’s Act III: Life & Death (2xLP, White Vinyl)

Dear Hunter – Act III Life and Death

I know a lot of people are looking forward to the next release from The Dear Hunter and Nerd Alert Records has got your pre-ordering needs met! Being released as a double LP on white vinyl, Triple Crown Records (the same peeps in charge of the Brand New Devil and God… vinyl pressing coming out next year) sounds pretty happy with how this one turned out.

Triple Crown says:

“Set in a WWI era, Act III… sets its own course with no direct historical ties, only a loyalty to the emotions of the human spirit, documenting the metamorphoses of a fictional central character as he makes the transition from innocence to impurity. With a great deal of care given to marrying all aspects of an album, ACT III… follows these themes within the context of lyrics, music, and tonality.”

Should be shipping in mid-late December.

PO: Motion City Soundtrack’s My Dinosaur Life (Vinyl, CD)

Motion City Soundtrack – My Dinosaur Life – Vinyl
Motion City Soundtrack – My Dinosaur Life – CD

Now taking pre-orders on what will almost certainly be one of 2010’s biggest hits, the new album from Motion City Soundtrack, entitled My Dinosaur Life. We here at Nerd Alert are big fans of MCS, so any new music from them automatically is must hear. I have heard lots of good things about this album as well, so we are pumped.

Expected to come out mid-January!

PO: Animal Collective’s Fall Be Kind – Vinyl

Animal Collective – Fall Be Kind – Vinyl

Recorded by Ben Allen at Sweet Tea in Oxford, MS in February 2008 and at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY August 2009, Fall Be Kind includes recent live favorites Graze and What Would I Want? Sky (featuring the first ever licensed Grateful Dead sample).

Should have these in sometime next week or the week after.

Alkaline Trio’s Crimson hot of the presses & Alexisonfire disappointment
Just got word that the Crimson reissue is in and I’ll be getting our copies shipped out tomorrow afternoon. Yay!

Bad news on the Alexisonfire front as Old Crows / Young Cardinals has been delayed about a month to January 12th. Boo. =
