Maybe, its not that they took it down but maybe it's that we crashed their servers when too many people tried to view at once. Also, I still think people have the right to be a little upset about the fact that there is not a physical preorder. Many people have said, including myself, that if there is no physical music to buy then what you are really purchasing is merchandise. A) I've never heard of a preorder just for merchandise and B) I'm willing to bet that most people would not have paid any money for t-shirt or a hoodie (i.e. if that's all the preorder was/no music)

I was on the fence about whether or not I should do a preorder and I'm glad the server crashed because when I though about it, I didn't really need any of that stuff. New music is awesome but really if it's digital only you don't need to preorder it; it isn't like it's going to run out. In fact the only part of the preorder that is likely to run out is the poster that comes with the $100 bundle. I don't know about you guys, but I think $100 dollars for some merch and a poster seems extremely high. If they make something physical with this (preferably a vinyl) I'll buy in a heartbeat. Until then I'm waiting for iTunes.

i'd rather waste my money on the digital download to get a nice quality 320kbps version directly from the band, instead of waiting for itunes to get a subpar "mastered for itunes" 192kbps version.

I'm thinking UMG has something to do with this. I know ties appear to be cut to Blink but maybe it was a contractual issue such as "the artist cannot release music for X amount of months". Labels do stupid shit like that.

Such a disappointment there are no physical copies. I'm not gonna do the fucking pre-order just to get the lamest blink-182 shirt and hoodie that I've ever seen. Totally wish they were releasing this on vinyl.

Well... that was a disappointment.

Surely everyone is sick of the "limited edition blink 182 posters" thing they have been doing for the past 2 years. And using the blink logo / bunny which isnt even that great!

Hopefully for those who pre-order, the "surprise additions" are decent.

For those who actually got through to order, what does your credit card history say? Is the order canceled?

I wouldn't be surprised if they make 500 or so physical copies just to throw into some of the pre-orders. Then they'll release a proper retail copy a few months down the line or when the full album drops. It'd be shitty to not be able to own a hard copy, fuck MP3s!
