We get a pretty constant stream of emails and DMs about when a particular pre-order might ship. In the interest of making our lives easier and hopefully cutting down on those messages, we've created this pre-order status page.
For every item we currently have in pre-order phase, we will post the current shipping status here, and update it as new information becomes available.
WHATEVER IT SAYS HERE IS THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION, AND MESSAGING US WILL NOT YIELD ANY ADDITIONAL ORDER SPECIFIC ANSWERS.
Also people are constantly surprised that whey they place one order they don't get two separate shipments, one containing the now available items and a second one later with the pre-order.
IF YOU WANT TWO SHIPMENTS YOU MUST DO TWO SEPARATE ORDERS, NOT ONE. WE WRITE THAT ON EVERY PREORDER PAGE YET PEOPLE STILL ACT SURPRISED.
Any emails / DMs regarding status from now on will simply get a link to this page. Thanks for understanding how much the constant inquiries slow us down from actually filling the very pre-orders you're wondering about.
Keep in mind there are only TWO people who work at 20 Buck Spin. One guy, Jason, who does mailorder full time, and one guy, Dave, who does everything else. In times of heavy pre-order fulfillment Dave jumps on mailorder too as needed.
CURRENT PRE-ORDER STATUS:
ATRAE BILIS - APEXAPIEN
Everything that can ship has shipped. If yours hasn't it's because it's waiting on another pre-order that's still unavailable, which of course includes all the vinyl for 'Apexapien' which we expect to receive sometime next month.
CDs, tapes and shirts are all shipping now. Vinyl release date estimated as December 3rd, hope to have them by mid-November and begin shipping immediately.
CDs and Tapes are already done and will start to ship around the first week of October. Vinyl will hopefully ship around late November.
WORM - FOREVERGLADE
We started shipping International CDs and tapes. Domestic CDs and tapes will start shipping on Monday. If your order contains a shirt it has not shipped as we don't have those yet. We expect to have them mid-week next week hopefully.
Tapes are here, CDs are on the way, shirts will be printed the week of October 18th most likely. We hope to begin shipping stuff in the week or two as it becomes available for the October 22nd release date.
Vinyl is still months away, likely will start shipping in January.
DREAM UNENDING - TIDE TURNS ETERNAL
Pre-orders begin tomorrow, October 15th. CDs and Tapes will start shipping around November 10th. Shirts hopefully about the same time. Vinyl won't ship until January sometime. Official release date is Feb 4th for vinyl, November 19th for all other formats.
PREVIOUS RECENT PRE-ORDER UPDATES:
WITCH VOMIT - ABHORRENT RAPTURE LONGSLEEVE
Done and shipping now.
WITCH VOMIT - ABHORRENT RAPTURE MLP
September 23rd Update:
The majority of Witch Vomit pre-orders have now been shipped.
September 10th Update:
We've shipped loads of these now but are still getting through orders from June 18th which was the first day of availability and a day in which many hundreds of orders were received. Copies beyond that day should be shipping by Tuesday sometime methinks.
September 7th Update:
We received the LPs this afternoon finally. We will begin shipping immediately. It will take a while. Don't email us for several weeks :)
September 3rd Update:
Did not receive the Witch Vomit LPs as hoped for today. Looks like Tuesday at the earliest. :(
September 2nd Update:
We are expecting these to arrive possibly tomorrow Friday (9/3) but possibly not until Tuesday or Wednesday (with Monday being the Labor Day holiday and no deliveries occurring). Once they arrive we'll begin shipping immediately and just the orders that came in the first day of pre-order availability will take 4-5 days of shipping to get through. It will take about two weeks (10-12 business days) to ship the bulk of them. Naturally we won't respond to any emails asking about shipment status with this page being here as this is the most current and sum total of all available information regarding this release. Thanks!
August 23rd Update:
These are about done at the plant and shipping to us soon. Since transit takes a good two weeks I doubt the bulk of these will be delivered by September 10th as we had hoped. But it's 2021 and you're used to that by now. Keep you posted.
WODE - BURN IN MANY MIRRORS LP
September 23rd Update: In stock and shipping now. Those who pre-ordered have been been shipped.
As noted on the product page we expect to begin shipping on these in late September.
CEREBRAL ROT - EXCRETION OF MORTALITY LP
So pretty much all of these pre-orders have shipped at this point. Some that were joint together with a Witch Vomit pre-order have not, because we don't have those yet. So this will likely be the final pre-order shipping update for the Cerebral Rot LP. Other orders still waiting for it are new orders that weren't done during the pre-order phase.
August 8th Update:
We started pre-orders for Cerebral Rot in mid-May, about 2.5 months ago. That's a lot of time to accumulate orders, most of which came in during the first month. Right now we are up to mid-late June in the order queue. Working through those and July orders during this next week which should go faster than that first month's worth of orders placed from mid-May to mid-June. We are also starting to ship Aenigmatum pre-orders this week, which we began taking on July 9th. If you placed a Cerebral Rot order after July 9th, then you now have some Aenigmatum pre-orders ahead of you as well in some cases as those orders are older then yours and now released for fulfillment.
Something else: For the B3 variant many people have noticed that the color merge quite literally merged into essentially a single color. This is why we put a warning on all product pages about color mixing producing varying results and that mock ups are just a best guess based on what was ordered. The pressing plant says the same thing and does not guarantee your color mix will turn out as you've pictured it in your mind on on your mock up, and they do not re-do a pressing or offer any refund / exchange etc because of it. And neither do we.
August 5th Update:
Jason's still plowing away at these. Dave is outta town on family business. Going as fast as possible but still plenty more to go. If you haven't got your confirmation yet don't sweat it, it will be coming. One thing to keep in mind is that the vast majority of orders came in on the first two days that the record was available. So if you ordered say 1 week later, you have a huge amount of people in front of you first. It takes a while just to get through those first few days of orders.
July 29th Update:
We continue to ship all variants as quickly as possible. Generally that translates to 100-150 a day. Based on that we've still got about 8-9 business days minimum before they've all shipped. So if you're still waiting for that shipping confirmation, that's the latest info.
July 26th Update:
We have now received the shipment containing the B2 and Black variants. We continue to ship all variants as quickly as possible, but there's a long way to go yet. Most likely will take about two more weeks to get through them all.
July 21st Update:
Today we received a partial shipment of Cerebral Rot LPs and will begin shipping what we got. So far we received B1, B3, B4. The B2 and Black variants are still in transit to us somewhere. Obviously if your order contains either of those variants it's not yet in the shipping queue.
Since going on sale we have listed July 30th as the date the LP version of the album would be released. The LPs have just shipped from the plant in Prague on July 17th. It usually takes approximately two weeks after shipment to arrive to us in Pittsburgh, assuming there are no hold ups at customs. As soon as we get them they will begin to ship.
It's important to understand something: there's a HUGE amount of pre-orders for this album. Once they arrive it will take SEVERAL WEEKS to ship them all out. Some people will get them sooner than others, that's just how it is.
You will see posted Instagram pictures by some people before yours even ships in some cases. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOUR COPY IS NOT COMING. It will come but it will take weeks to ship them all. Please be patient and don't email us about it unless it's like the end of August and you didn't get a shipping confirmation.
ÆNIGMATUM - DECONSECRATE
August 23rd Update:
Like Cerebral Rot, we've managed to get pretty much all Aenigmatum pre-orders shipped at this point. Lingering orders were placed recently, well after the pre-order phase. This will be the final update for Aenigmatum pre-orders.
August 8th Update:
We're starting to ship these ahead of the August 13th release date. But we are still working through Cerebral Rot pre-orders too, so depending on date of order we will most likely not have the bulk of Aenigmatum pre-orders delivered or even necessarily in the mail by the August 13th street date. We'll have a better sense as the week goes on. All formats including the shirts are here and ready to ship.
July 26th Update:
We have all 3 physical formats in stock now. The shirts have not yet been printed. As we are knee deep into Cerebral Rot pre-order fulfillment and we're still about 3 weeks away from the Aenigmatum release date, these will start to ship a little later.
As of now all formats of Deconsecrate, LP / CD / TAPE/ TS / LS are scheduled to be ready on or around the release date of August 13th. BUT, as mentioned above, because the CEREBRAL ROT vinyl shipments will take weeks to fulfill, it is going to push the fulfillment of AENIGMATUM pre-orders back too as a result. Between Cerebral Rot and Aenigmatum we expect to be filling pre-orders for the entire month of August.
