Workhorse Music Group, on behalf of Thrice, today issues the following details on the delay of the vinyl version of the group’s upcoming live box set, Anthology:
We’re extremely sorry and remorseful to report that the Thrice “Anthology” 4-LP Box Sets will not be completed in time for the scheduled October 30 release date. During the set up and pre-sales all deadlines had been reached with the plant, and we were under the impression we would easily have the finished pieces in time. However, the plant just informed us they are running “behind schedule” and the assembly of the boxes is taking longer than they anticipated. Our hearts sank with the news, as we know fans were eager to have them in a timely manner.
We’re aware that fans paid a lot of money for these premium items and we promise we’re on top of the situation. With the bigger LP packages, it seems as though delays are hard to avoid these days.
There is currently no definite date by when they’ll be ready to ship. Once we hear back from the plant, we will immediately get in touch with you and supply updates. Again, we cannot apologize enough and we thank you or your patience! No band values their fans’ loyalty like Thrice and it pains us to let anyone down.
Neither the CD nor digital versions will be affected by the LP delays, and all fans that pre-ordered either configuration should receive them on time. CDs will be available in stores and downloads will be available through all major digital retailers on October 30th as originally planned.
For any questions related to this delay, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Anthology is a collection of live audio that was recorded at select stops on Thrice’s recent farewell tour. Anthology will be released on Staple Records/Workhorse Music Group October 30, 2012 and features 24 songs that will be available digitally, on two CDs, and as a limited edition box set containing four LP’s. The LP box set is limited to just 3000 stamped and numbered pieces and will include a 24-page booklet along with 2 black LP’s and 2 white LP’s all on 180 gram vinyl.
