Am I the only one who thinks Suitcase is the worst song on the record? Sharp Practice should be the first single, imho.

Love it

They should worry about getting their album out to people more than music videos at this stage.

While true, getting their video out through fuse could showcase their music to the people that wouldn't have heard it otherwise.

Me either. I had actually totally forgotten about it until today. At least we got the download, so it's holding me over...

Suitcase is one of my least favorites. I hope we see the band. I don't want to watch the whole video with some girl jumping around.......

brook183 09/11/12 10:51 PM

Not the album's best song, but still a great one, and it could make for a great video.

KenneyBN 09/11/12 11:34 PM

One of my favorites on the record for sure.

Also, cmon people, they're doing this all themselves. You're going to get your records, relax.

pseudonym28 09/12/12 12:01 AM

they might be one of the few bands that can self release a record and still get a bunch of publicity.

Merve 09/12/12 12:41 AM

This looks a lot like Straylight Run's music video for "Soon We'll Be Living In The Future."

Just cause they're doing it themselves isn't an excuse to not do it right.

People, the distribution responsibility and ultimatley the manufacturing error is all in a third parties hands. Circa has absolutely no control over a third parties mistakes. You all are so stupid.

Tell them to spend more money and hire a third party that can deliver the product on time...it sure as hell isn't my fault. It's been over 2 weeks and no one's order has arrived. How bout they get their money when I get their product? Nope. They get their money immediately and we wait forever for our product.

Kevin_MI 09/12/12 09:53 AM

Suitcase is one of my least favorite songs on the new album.

IMO Sharp Practice should have been chosen.

So youre either implying that a) they knew the company they went with has a bad track record from the beginning but didnt care because it was cheaper, despite you having no evidence of this, or b) that none of the above is true, but they should have foreseen these circumstances and done something magical to thwart them. Neither is reasonable. It's not reasonable to say it's your fault and it's not reasonable to say it's the bands fault. I sure as hell hope youre not implying you deserve their product for free when it does arrive. Your logic is flawed.

I was about to say...it's topspin media that's handling this, not Circa directly. But I've heard in the past that Topspin are terrible, so what I want to know is why they still went with them.

The_Effort 09/12/12 11:17 AM

My record hasn't arrived yet either. I'm definitely not pissed about it though- shit happens. As long as it comes as soon as they're able to get it to me I'm good. Only issue im having is I've been doing my best to not listen to the album until its physically in my hands, and that's proving to be difficult cause I wanna hear it! Haha

You're being the stupid one here. It's not ALL in the third parties hands. The band (like labels) should plan accordingly in case something goes wrong. Get your stuff to the plant earlier and don't charge people money for something you're going to be this late on. It doesn't effect me cause this album sucks but it's
Still a bummer to see something like this going on.

It's good to know there are people here with a brain. Thank you.

You think they should essentially pay two companies to follow through with manufacturing (back up plan). You think they didnt follow proper protocol in accordance to how soon they "shipped to the plant." And on top of that, now the product should be free of charge. Yeah okay....

Whats that popular saying? In a perfect world something, something unlimited funds

Please correct me if Im wrong here, but Topspin doesnt handle manufacturing.

I'm implying that I shouldn't have been charged until my product was shipped. Like every other website does when you pre-order something.

There was more to your last post than that but, I understand what you said in this post. I would maintain that it makes no difference if you pay for something now or later if you are to own it. I guess thats sort of an opinion.

Not what I said. You don't pay for the backup plan until you have to. If they had gotten the stuff to the plant sooner they would have had time to fix it. And yes of course they/the plant have to pay for the mistake It's not the fans fault. It's unlucky but it's how shit works

Yes, the plant should have to pay for wasted materials. The music should not however be free to fans out of the bands pocket for third party mistakes.

It does make a difference. It makes the company and band meet their release date times instead of being 2+ weeks late.

It's not free. The people paid for it

ship of fools 09/12/12 01:07 PM

It doesn't happen often, but music videos sometimes are the catalyst behind me getting into an album. So far this album has 0 appeal to me, no matter how much I want to like it. Hopefully some visuals will help.

No, the people are not being asked to pay extra for a manufacturing mistake.

Initially your original post had a lot of ignorant things to say. However, I agree with what you have to say above, but disagree that it is inherently the bands fault.

It's my least favourite on the whole album.
