The Format are selling some of the first batch of Dog Problems vinyls that were a little messed up. They're $5 and the proceeds will be going to animal charities -- you can grab one here.
The issues with these records are visual and should not affect the sound in any way, but since this is considered a donation, all sales are final. SOLD AS IS! We will not be accepting any returns or exchanges for any reason.
First of all, we are so sorry for the delay on the Dog Problems vinyl. I promise we’ve been doing our best to keep everyone up to speed, but sometimes information is hard to come by. So here’s the deal..
Early on in the Dog Problems project we had a couple issues with the die-cuts and dog bowl etching. Both caused a slight delay, but were resolved quick and things were looking good. Then last Thursday, the records showed up and I was totally blown away.. until I looked a little closer. Both the die-cut and etching were still bad. We spent so much time and effort making sure these turned out as cool as possible, I couldn’t stand the...
Unfortunately, there were some etching issues on the Dog Problems vinyl that have caused a bit of a delay in production. We’re being told they should hopefully be in our hands by the middle of January. Sorry for the last second information, we only just received it yesterday. We’ll pass along more updates as they come along. On the bright side, if you’ve placed a vinyl order that does not contain Dog Problems, it should have already shipped earlier this week, or will be shipping on schedule tomorrow.
Tons of back and forth over the years, but once we finally made a definitive decision to move forward, it came together pretty quick. Nicky, who works at The Format’s management office in Boston played a major role in assembling all the pieces. I can’t thank her enough. It was also really cool that Elektra finally let us license Interventions + Lullabies. For a couple years, the plan was just to do Dog Problems, so in a way, I’m glad it took a while so we could make the whole package that much more special.
