Great album, but nothing I need on vinyl. Not going to renew my VMP until they step it up again.
>>
This niqqa right here. Just wish these plans were a little cheaper
>>
Is it going to have a regular release outside of vmp?
>>
Very overrated album btw, I liked s/t and Plastic Beach better
>>
>>71683079
hope it does
>>
>>71683092
You can't deny that Demon Days and Don't Get Lost in Heaven are great songs.
>>
Me
>>
>>71684588
not OP but I also think S/T and Plastic Beach are better. Yes I like Demon Days too, just not as much as the other ones
>>
how soon are they going to run out? i get paid friday and until then i don't want to spend the money i might need on actual important things.

lmao not long ago today there was one/three/1 year, but it's three/six instead

bunch of jews
>>
>>71686829
and they changed the prices so that the 3 month is $27 a month instead of the usual $24
>>
I really would have preferred a vinyl issuing of Laika Come Home. Best Gorillaz related release, imvhbco.
>>
I ordered one.

If you guys use my referral code, both of us get a $10 credit off our next order (or if you cancel your subscription, you get $10 refunded to your card) So it's like getting it for $19 and not $29

http://fbuy.me/fgpVm
>>
>>71683079
no. exclusive release
>>
I got in and I posted the $10 off referral link under a YouTube video and got enough that I'm getting it and another record for free :^)
Pretty pleased
>>
>>71686803
>>71686829
They sold out of their new monthly member allocation within 5 hours
Their subscriber base has increased by more than 15%, it was already several thousand people
They went crazy pressing as many copies of this as they could and they're still probably going to sell out by Friday
>>
>>71686793
If you subscribe now you won't get charged until April 2
But it seems like it's too late for you to just get Demon Days
>>
>>71687021
I want D-Sides on vinyl.
>>
>>71687720
>But it seems like it's too late for you to just get Demon Days
Does it say sold out?
>>
>>71687925
They sold out of one month subscriptions, now you need the three months or twelve
>>
>>71687941
Oh, well I was just going to get the three months one anyway
>>
>>71687925
>>71687941
And they're expected to sell out of copies entirely by Friday
It's still possible to get it, and I would if you're on the fence, because it will be at least several months before this gets a wide reissue, if not longer, and it will only skyrocket in price.
>>
>>71687980
Alright, signed up for it, now to play the waiting game for muh Demon Days vinyl
>>
is it possible to subscribe 3 months but pay them monthly? i don't want to spend 100 bucks directly
>>
>>71688076
No.
You save $10 if you use someone's referral code and you won't be charged until April 2 though, after which Demon Days will ship
>>
>>71687941
>selling out of memberships
>>
>>71688644
Most record clubs only have so many memberships at a time.
>>
I signed up for this dipshit service to get Breakin' Atoms, and then unsubscribed. I have a couple of "please come back" emails, I wonder if I can get a one month sub by using one of those.

This service is wicked dumb, even with unlimited swaps. Why pay full price for a mystery record, and in the event you don't like it, end up swapping it for a record in their store, that you probably wouldn't pick up unless you were already in this weird situation?

Like "Gee i really don't want this fucking Tennis record, guess I'll pay $24 bucks for this Big Bill Broonzy reissue that I would never end up buying any other way, glad I'm imprisoning my own money"

Hope I can get this Demon Days reissue. Selling out of memberships is fucking bogus. Demon Days is a big deal for dorks, but it's not enough to do this shit over.
>>
>>71688737
Thanks, VMP intern. People aren't going to cough up money for 3-6 months worth of mystery records to get Demon Days. What a bunch of bullshit.
>>
bump
>>
I'm really anxious about this
If I signed up for a three month plan I'm good, right? It says activates April 2nd but also that it's already activated
>>
>>71691233
Yes, if you've signed up, you will get Demon Days. They haven't ran out of copies, just the reserve for new 1-month members. So if you managed to sign up for a 1-month membership you'll get it, you just can't sign up now.
>>
>>71688737
Yeah the piece of notebook paper with the 1-month memberships ran out of space.
>>
>>71686803
>>71687697
>>71687925
>>71687941
Monthly subscription option is still available, just hidden. Go to the link, scroll down and you'll see it to the right.

http://www.vinylmeplease.com/email-thank-you/
>>
>>71682196
what is their problem with simply selling the album?

it's not like they'd make fucktons of cash or anything
>>
>>71688862
Yeah overall vinyl subscription services are so lame. Records are fucking expensive at $20 a piece, I'd rather spend that on a record I absolutely love rather than have a random one sent to me that I might not like.
>>
>>71687068
What's your referral code?
>>
>>71691762
alright so if I cancel this month will they still send me demon days?
>>
>>71692062
If you cancel before May 2, yes
>>71691774
Gorillaz team is too busy to do it, Vinyl Me Please having the resources took the initiative to work things out and do it themselves. And the subscription is their business model.
I'd bet Warner does a wide reissue next year sometime but this will be it for a while. Unless VMP presses more to stock in their store.
Also, they just said on Twitter they have only 100 total memberships left.
>>
>>71692062
After April 2nd. That's when they'll charge you and ship the LP. If you don't cancel by May 2nd it'll auto renew.

Also just got confirmed on Twitter that this is a new master from the original hi-rez digital files, so it shouldn't be compressed like the CD
>>71692383
http://fbuy.me/fgk9H
$10 applies when you are billed, won't show up in your account for a few days because the system is getting spammed. But you will be charged $10 less than stated on April 2
>>
>>71692420
Is there a way to use this and get the one month?
>>
>>71692497
Follow the referral link and then use the part on the page that says "Enter your email for weekly playlist", it will bring you to that other page
>>
>>71692547
Really appreciate it.
>>
Red alert
It's going to be gone in less than a day
>>
I fucking want this album on vinyl like no other but this is outrageous. fuck this
>>
>>71692756
It's just a small company operating under their normal business model, they just managed to press an album they could never be able to meet demand for. It's still going to be a good pressing and there were 5 solid hours where you could have gotten it for $29 with free shipping, which I don't think is too bad.
Now it's up to Warner to release it more widely, because the demand is clearly there
>>
>>71692309
yeah so my card already got charged right after I signed up
they're not sending me this month's album, charge me again and then send me demon days right?
>>
>>71692848
No, March's record is gone.
They must have changed to instant charging because they got totally flooded.
But if you sign in and go to https://app.vinylmeplease.com/profile
and see something that looks like this, you should be in.
>>
>>71692906
Yeah that's it, perfect.

Do you work for these guys? You're very eager to help and know all about it.
Can you tell me how this whole share with friends to get $10 thing works? I can't get this widget to work
>>
ouch
glad i copped this while i could
>>
>>71692906
wait fuck, actually mine says "automatic renewal on April 2nd"
dang nabbit, I hope I didn't just pay a month's worth for nothing
>>
>>71692999
No, I don't work for them, I'm just excited and figured it all out this afternoon after I jumped on the thing as soon as I head the news.
And the referral codes are all a bit vague (it's odd it doesn't indicate you're using a discount at all during signup) but I know that at least 5 people have managed to sign up with my link, I was notified of receiving a referral code via email, and that when I made a purchase in the shop the value of the codes was deducted from my purchase total and the remaining balance showed up in my account page after the order was confirmed. And that the widget also doesn't work in Firefox, I had to use Chrome
But it's all a bit moot now innit, they're all out of Demon Days. Apparently today they had over 10x more new signups than any day in their history
>>
>>71693001
Fuck you fucking kikes for buying this shit. $29 for a record. You enabled them. I would have bought it for $10 or $15 but now they're sold out
>>
>>71693181
Then you would never have bought it so no loss for you.
>>
>>71693181
A new good double LP pressing of something is at LEAST $20 these days, it's called inflation, and this has nice printed full color artwork on all of the sleeves and is a good master manufactured at a good pressing plant. And this is also an album infamous for commanding prices of $200+ for its original pressing, which makes $29 for all charges not seem too bad considering. Random Access Memories and Since I Left You both cost well over $30 anywhere you see them, and those aren't even limited pressings. Even Blackstar and the new Rolling Stones album are more expensive and those are 1 LP
>>
>>71693181
$29 includes shipping too, though.

Fucking hell, it's a piece of plastic, not a piece of the True fucking Cross. There is NOTHING preventing someone with the rights from just printing some more fucking records.
>>
>>71693181
>>71693323
And with a referral (which everyone was handing out) you get it for $19

Honestly I would have even paid $40 for this. This thing will skyrocket in value.
>>
>>71693334
And they probably will, but their label has neglected to do so up to this point for whatever reason, in spite of demand clearly existing.
I'm sure they'll hear word of what a huge success this was though and maybe it will move off the backburner
>>
>>71693334
it costs a fair bit of money to press records, especially with queues.
Still, you figured they would've overstocked just in case.
>>
>>71693109
That's fine too. Mine looks like that since I bought the Person Pitch release prior.
>>
>>71693181
t. guy who didn't sign up in time

>>71693334
well the only thing stopping people is copyright laws
>>
>>71693384
They did overstock, but there were still 10x more signups in one day than they've ever experienced before and pressing even larger quantities would have been an irresponsible business risk.
They knew it would sell out but they had no idea or way of knowing it would be so quickly
>>
>>71693390

they posted a waitlist link on their twitter in case anyone cancels
>>
>>71693512
Yes. Any pressing going for a non-outrageous price at the moment is a bootleg
Odds are some VMP copies will show up on Discogs after long-time members who don't like it (or just scalpers) sell theirs off this time next month but I'll bet they'll be more than the original price
>>71693524
If you have some in your account for your membership when the billing happens it'll apply on that too
But yeah I put mine under a YouTube vid and got 50 bucks, feels good man, copped some cool stuff
>>
>>71691762
now that it's sold out, what happens if you sign up for the 1 month with this link? seems like you could still subscribe unlike the other 2 options
>>
>>71693571
I signed up for the waitlist around 10 minutes after they posted, even then though I'm sure that's me against 100,000 people fighting over one spot that might randomly open

fucked up shit
>>
>>71693633
I have no idea, but my guess is it will probably be cancelled unless it's a bug they manage to catch quickly enough to allow a few people in who managed to exploit it in time.
No harm trying, this will be your last chance to get this that cheap for a long time

There are like 25,000 subscribers to Vinyl Me Please. Doubt this record will go for more than $50 second hand.
>>
>>71694556
This particular record has pretty unprecedented demand. Like it would easily be in the vinyl top 10 of the year if they released a wide reissue of it.
But yes, I think prices will drop below $100 now (for both original and reissue), and hopefully well below it. But hard to say until copies start moving

Vinyl never went away, only normies got a hold of it too
>>
>>71702490
No, it went away. Nobody wanted it for years until around 5 years ago when hipsters started wanting it because no one else did.

Now people are playing $25-40 for an objectively inferior music storage format.
>>
>>71703325

Because the world went digital and CDs aren't good physical replacements, so vinyl filled in
>>
>>71703325
$30 today was around $10 back when vinyl was first getting big
>>
>>71703325
Punk bands were releasing vinyl all through the 90s. I should know, oldfag here.
>>
>>71683092
>>71686535

S/t and Plastic Beach ARE both objectively better. Demon Days gets all the hype because most millennials were too young to be there when the first one dropped and old enough to be more measured when they first heard Plastic Beach.

I'm still re-upping my VMP for this one and because of their new swap policy.

Those jews got me with Person Pitch and now I can swap away all the nigger music and shitty indie that they churn out to save their shekels in between the "big" releases.
