My DIY cut up Trophy Scars shirt c: very happy.
Here are two important announcements about the album release dates…
1. Due to the Record Store Day manufacturing rush and the special vinyl color we ordered, it took a bit longer than we had hoped to get the vinyl production completed.
As a result of this, we missed our distributor’s cut-off date for stock delivery and so the album will not reach the stores until the 6th of May in North America.
In Europe, the release date will be the 21st of April.
We will plan to ship all pre-orders from the web shop before the 21st of April
2. We have some good news for US customers who pre-ordered the album, from the web shop! We have found a way to bulk ship some vinyl LPs to the US and we will be mailing the US orders from New Jersey. This will reduce the actual shipping costs by £4.00 GBP (about $6.50), so everyone in the USA who pre-ordered the vinyl from the Monotreme Web shop will receive a PayPal refund of £4.00 GBP. This will put the shipping cost at about US $8.00 and there will be no import duty or other extra charges. We have now lowered the shipping charge for US orders from the web shop to £5.00 GBP (approx US $8.00).
We just received the vinyl and it looks awesome! We have a lot of packing to do, so please bear with us a little bit longer and you will finally receive your albums!
Thanks so much for your patience and your support. We are very excited to be getting this music into your ears soon.
We’ll have some other good things to announce shortly!
