Odd that there's no pre-order link. Two huge opportunities for a slew of sales, both missed. Unless they launch it in a few hours

this is going to sell out very quickly whenever they announce it. They announced the pre-order randomly last time for Parting and it crashed Deathwish's site.

It'll sell regardless. Probably waiting for an odd time so people don't flood/F5 the server. Pretty sure Tre said it isn't going up today.

I disagree. They're not only going to press 2K and have it sell out. They'll press 7k-10k like B&C, and it won't sell out in a day or in a month, most likely.

I hope they press more this time. I don't wanna miss out. Song sounds great. Not a huge fan of the way it starts but that's fine.

It's so odd that this and Balance & Composure are getting coverage on Pitchfork. Not in a bad way at all, it's actually rather exciting.

And from not really enjoying Touche Amore, I have to say this is a much better sound than anything I've heard from them.

There really isn't anything surprising at all about Ian Cohen liking Balance and Composure and Touche Amore

His taste aligns with this site pretty well (Clarity and The Devil and God!!!11!1!!)

pitchfork extensively covers a lot of deathwish bands, this isn't that surprising

I should be clear when I say the deluxe edition of this and the most limited variant will sell out in a day or two. So my mistake, I didn't mean to imply the entire first pressing would sell out in a day or two.

Parting The Sea had a first pressing of about 4000 (not including the 100 friends and family press) and the deluxe and the two rarest colors sold out in about 2 days or so (the deluxe edition of 961 sold out in less than a day once the servers went back up). I think the deluxe edition this time around will be around 2000 pressed but I'd be surprised if that doesn't sell out in less than a week.

Also Deathwish like to put up pre-orders now once they have the record in hand and can give the purchaser a complete immediate download of the record, so that's another reason why they hold off on pre-orders. The pre-order for the last Converge album sucked because of all the factory delays and I think Deathwish learned from that.

Deathwish did an initial pressing of 5000 for the new Deafheaven and that sold out in less than a month and Touché Amoré is definitely more popular than that band was at the time of the Deafheaven pre-order.

my bad... i meant to quote the guy that posted the youtube link, but my internet connection sucks it seems.. hahaha, but the song is really good.

haha, no worries - I didn't post the YouTube link because it's a premiere on Pitchfork, and even though we CAN post the link, it's kinda better practice to give them credit - we have the same issue on a regular basis here. Just trying to be friendly in the space.
