*EKSI EKSO - Brown Shark, Red Lion PRE-ORDER UPDATE
Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on this and explain why it's taking so long to get these mailed out to everyone. The plant we used for this job accidentally pressed the set that was supposed to be brown/red on ALL red vinyl instead, without any brown records =( So now they're currently pressing the brown ones, so that we can swap them out with one of the extra red ones, reassemble them, and complete the sets... fun, fun, fun! Also worth noting, they didn't press the colors exactly the way we had instructed them to. Each record has a lot of marbling in the color mix... they look beautiful, but they're not exactly what we ordered. However, this sets them apart from any of the other releases we've done and we're pretty stoked on how they look! The print work came out stunning as well, with the gorgeous matte finish on the jackets as icing on the cake. Check out the pics of the goods:
orange vinyl, limited to 300 - order HERE
baby blue vinyl, limited to 100 - order HERE
You can really see the matte finish on the two photos above... along with a peak out how the red vinyl turned out... just waiting on the brown =/
So we can start shipping everyone's pre-orders now, except those that included a brown/red set. Unfortunately we're going to have to wait until the brown records come in, then we'll reassemble those sets and get them packed up and mailed out. We're currently waiting on an ETA from the plant, but we're expecting them within the next couple weeks at least... and we're "applying pressure" on them to make it quick - so it won't be that much longer. We're really sorry about this, but unfortunately in the world of vinyl manufacturing, this shit happens way too often. We'll keep everyone posted via tweets (follow us HERE) and what not as things progress =)
*ACTORS&ACTRESSES - We Love Our Enemy PRE-ORDER UPDATE
Quick update on this one, everything is moving along swimmingly and we expect to have this in house next week and shipped out to everyone no problemo.

Just a heads up that we set up a Bandcamp page that gives everyone easy access to almost everything we've released digitally.
