More and More Gaslight Anthem Preorders

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/12/12)
Preorders for The Gaslight Anthem's Handwritten are popping up all over the Internet. If you head here you can check out a few options that include a CD copy of the album and an album art t-shirt. The El Jefe preorders we posted earlier are now available with a blue vinyl option.

heard that the blue option is only /200 and they aren't even sure if they will get blue. I'll just wait for an official pre-order from the band

I caved and ordered that LP option because who knows how much it's limited to, and maybe it'll be worth it. Already disappointed in myself. Overpriced.

Well it advertised blue so if I don't get blue I'm going to be complaining up someone's butthole at Infinite Merch.

from the thread on vinyl collective:
"this is quickly turning into a cluster fuck. now El Jefe is saying there will be more colors once the blue sells out. but if you buy the bundle you are not guaranteed to get blue. maybe just that bundle with the poster and shirt is limited to 200 because in the past i believe the posters El Jefe did for Gaslight Anthem pre-orders were hand numbered. or the distro saying "no guarantees on color" is some business mumbo jumbo they have to say just to cover their own ass.

it's also weird how the band has made no announcements about pre-orders for their new record. no mention on twitter, facebook, their website. plus that infinite merch store selling the bundles is not linked on their website either. "

WELP going to see if I can cancel my order haha. Fuck this process, why can't they just announce a normal bundle preorder? SideOneDummy should have been given rights to the vinyl.

This was taken from the newsletter that was sent out a few hours ago. Thats what I submit. I think this is the official from the band pre-order. Perhaps this is why you don't go with a major label? It don't even seem like the band knows what the fuck is going on. Shouldn't a deluxe have the vinyl plus the "deluxe" version of the cd? plus everything else (t-shirt, poster ect.) I'm 100% disappointed with this. I'm going for the vinyl but I also want the the deluxe cd for the extra tracks, however there is no way in hell I'm spending close to $100 after shipping for a vinyl and a cd bundle. This is fucked.
