Dammit. I pre-ordered from Hopeless' website. More expensive and the poster isn't autographed. Awesome.

Vinyl + shirt (the package I was hoping Hopeless would carry) for $3 more than I bought the vinyl from Hopeless.

Nice job by the label! Inconsiderate to the fans of their bands, the few that are actually still buying music. Yeah, SmartPunk doesn't have the coke bottle clear vinyl, but that's only a selling point if you're fair to your customers and let them know all the options. Good business practice. Next time I'll just wait for the leak.

I preordered from Hopeless too, and I'm kinda bummed, but I really don't think this is some big business scheme on the part of Hopeless. And next time you'll just wait for the leak? Even if this was Hopeless's fault, you're going to hurt the band by not preordering their album just to get back at the label?

So here's my question: who's in charge of this pre-order shit?

And further, why does it always seem that the die-hard fans who pre-order the most substantial bundle as soon as they possibly can end up getting screwed when a more affordable, comparable (sometimes better) deal comes out three weeks later?

I'm sure the actual band has nothing to do with it, but this seems to happen a lot.

Scheme or not, which I didn't imply, it's poor practice. Given the upfront production time, it's safe to assume that Hopeless was aware of the variants of pre-order packages when they put their's up.

Collateral damage.
