Wanted to give a little more info/be as transparent as possible here.
1) Thanks to everyone who is excited for this record, we promise its very good. And this is all new stuff, just launched today.
2) All of the CDs and LPs through this pre order are deluxe, limited edition, and are only available through our store, so you wont find these Deluxe CDs/LPs or extras in other stores. So the price is a bit more than normal, but its a better product.
3) If these packages are not right for you don't worry, iTunes, Amazon, etc will all have the standard version (which is still very cool) up for pre order down the line, but they wont have the extra songs, or shirt/extras options.
Way to rip fans off who want the deluxe.
Looks like I'll buy the $10 version at Target and DL the bonus tracks.
