PO: Death Cab For Cutie’s Transatlanticism (2xLP)

Death Cab For Cutie – Transatlanticism

After being out of print forever and nearly impossible to find, we were able to score a few copies of the German import version that should be here next week. 2 records, each pressed on 180 gram vinyl. I know the price is steep but it sure beats playing $75-$100 on eBay. 🙂

PO: Alkaline Trio’s This Addicition (Vinyl)

Alkaline Trio – This Addiction (Vinyl)

This went live last week but haven’t had a chance to announce it on the front page. The new album from punk stalwarts, Alkaline Trio, hits stores on February 23rd via Epitaph Records and their own Heart & Skull Records and is supposed to be a classic skate punk album, back to old sound, yada, yada, yada. I don’t give a shit what style of music this album is as long as it is new Alkaline Trio music. 🙂

Sure, a lot of their splendor comes from the older albums but you won’t find anyone over at Nerd Alert Records embarrassed to know the words to all the songs off the past couple albums. Fucking love this band and cannot wait to hear this album. 🙂

Vinyl includes a MP3 download card for the album (this does not include the bonus tracks from the deluxe CD/DVD set though).

Photos: Thrice Beggars

Those are the four colors we received for Thrice’s Beggars. They showed up around 7PM tonight and we will be spending all Friday packing orders in hopes that they will all ship Saturday. To keep this process moving, time spent checking emails and private messages and such will be cut down to close to zero – we will do our best to give anyone who ordered multiple copies multiple colors and catch any color requests the best we can, but please understand that packing up 130+ Thrice records, plus anything else people ordered with these, is going to take FOREVER. And its getting late into the holiday season, I’m sure everyone would like these in their sweaty mitts as soon as possible, am I right?

Thrice Beggars Quick Update

These left California today for us up in Washington State, along with the test pressing. So we’ll have all our copies shipping at the end of the week – I’m figuring they’ll stroll in Wednesday/Thursday evening and then go out on either Friday/Saturday. Everyone will get some sort of shipping confirmation email, so you’ll know when to start watching for your orders.

Oh – and the test pressing is coming with the records so whoever the winner is, you’ll be getting it with your record. Its like a Willy Wonka thing, the golden ticket and shit. 🙂

We will be doing our best to get these orders out in one swoop, but please bare in mind that they won’t be shipping until the end of the week and that the holiday logjam has been going on for awhile at the USPS. If you want to upgrade your shipping to make damn sure this comes to you before Christmas, you’ve got a couple days left to do so. Just drop us an email – orders@nerdalertrecords.com – for a quote.

Thanks!

Photos: Alkaline Trio’s Crimson 2xLP

Our copies of Alkaline Trio’s Crimson reissue came in Friday night. This is a couple photos from our personal copy. All our copies are numbered between 300 – 500 (or so it appeared) and are supposed to only be on white.

These will be shipping out tomorrow morning to all pre-orders!

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!
