PostSubject: Are you going to pre order Handwritten or Buy it in Store?   Mon Jun 04, 2012 11:20 pm

I really want to preorder it but I am worried that it will not get here on the day of release. I ordered the new Hot Water Music album and received it 5 days before the release date. Do you think this will be the same for Handwritten? This is the first time one of their albums is releasing while I am a fan so I don't know the best thing to do with them. If I choose to buy it in stores what stores would have it on first day of release? Or...Should I take the chance and preorder it? What have you always done when they release a new album?

I received American Slang about a week before release. However with a new label it's hard to say how that will work. But being on a major label I would anticipate that you would be able to buy the album in most record stores.

I'm not sure stores will have the deluxe version. So I'm going to pre-order and hope for the best.

I had American Slang a day before the release. Hopefully it's similar on a bigger label.

Maybe I'm crazy but in cases like this, I buy it on itunes the second it hits midnight and worry about a hard copy later. With Springsteen and Gaslight I don't worry about having multiple copies. (I may or may not have 4 copies of "Wrecking Ball")

I've pre-ordered from Play already & will probably pre-order a vinyl.

I may end up buying it on iTunes, too.

I'm gonna pre-order it on vinyl, perhaps as part of a bundle, and buy the CD from the good folks at Vintage Vinyl on the release day.

I know it's a little silly to buy a CD from a place with Vinyl in the name, but I expect the records will sell out a lot faster than the CDs will.

Unless there's a seriously special package I'll probably just get it in a shop (and I'm not talking vinyl or extra songs - no interest in vinyl, and songs will surface online).

I liked to support SideOne as I can see the benefit to them of having my cash ASAP but not Mercury.

I will go to the store on my lunch break and buy it. The vinyl, the regular CD and the deluxe version. Hopefully all three in one shot.

What I can't get my hands on, I will hit up maybe 1 or 2 other stores to get it. I am definitely in favor of supporting my loval indie stores because I never want them to go out of business.

If there are pre-order packages that are great, I might think about going that way. But I won't pre-order just to save money or to maybe get it a day early.

The only thing with play.com, is it seems to take ages to arrive now, you will be lucky to get it first week of release..second week...no problem.

Hmmm... that's a tough one. Depends on what I can afford. haha But, probably pre-order the vinyl and buy the cd on the day it comes out.

I'd suspect records will sell out fairly quick as well.

Will places like Best Buy and F.Y.E have copies on release day? What places in the United States usually have them?

I think it's a possibility seeing as they're on a big label now. Not 100% though. But if there happen to be any super good record stores in your area, like in SF we have this awesome record store called Amoeba, that'd be the best bet. I wish i knew more about the commercial makeup of kansas haha

Man, all we have around here is Best Buy, Walmart, F.Y.E, Hot Topic and just the chains that are everywhere. I am so nervous about getting the album the day of the release. I might just do the buy it on itunes on Midnight thing and then get it when I wake up at a store.

hmm i'd say preordering would be a better bet in that case. i feel like with those types of stores it's really a crapshoot for any CD. but i feel like one of them would probably have it

Cool. Thanks for your help! I never thought I would be worrying about a cd this much before...but there is just something about Gaslight Anthem. It is probably because I find them to be the most awesome band my ears have ever heard. I will just preorder one of the bundles when they are put up and then buy it on itunes as soon as it is buyable. That way there is no worrying about not being able to hear it on day 1. Smile

I pre-ordered from the official Universal site for another band a few times. Most recently Lana Del Rey and they sent that about a week after release and it didn't even have a download card. Other times they've just sent me duplicate copies.

I'll personally probably see what Banquet put up for pre-order, if there's variants they'll usually get them in and sometimes they have free posters and stuff. But yeah, it depends on all the pre-orders that are to be announced.

If I don't have the album by release day I'll either see if I can find it really cheap on Amazon MP3 or somewhere or I'll go wait outside HMV and buy the CD.
