    Good interview. Interesting to hear about the early years.

    Thinking about that interview, the interviewer brings up a good point that not many people ever talk about: Ken really has a very unique one of a kind singing voices out there. I mean, Greg is great too, but like Autolux proves, he has two other people that can sound exactly like him...

    Ugh. Fuck you, PledgeMusic.

    Got an email from Failure last night (I had pre-ordered the new LP). Here's the full text:

    "To our fans:

    Over the past four years we've run three successful presale campaigns with Pledge Music (The Heart Is A Monster, Fantastic Planet vinyl and Fantastic Planet Live). Through these campaigns we've been able to provide our fans with music, art, and experiences that have worked well for our fans, and therefore, for us. Unfortunately this is no longer the case.

    We are now at the point where we should be preparing to ship the orders from the campaign for our new album, In The Future Your Body Will Be The Furthest Thing From Your Mind. However, Pledge Music is now experiencing financial problems resulting in a suspension of their services and an inability to satisfy their obligations to us, making it impossible to fulfill your order.

    We've thought long and hard on how to solve this problem and to help those who have been so supportive of us. If you bought a digital download of the album, you received your order last year. But for all of the supporters who bought a physical record, CD, or other physical item, we suggest you call your credit card company or your bank card provider and dispute the charges.

    We will be offering the heavyweight signed double vinyl, regular double vinyl, and signed CDs, as well as some of the other items from the campaign on our upcoming tour which starts on March 11. We hope to have these and other items available through our own e-commerce store, www.failurebandmerch.com, very soon.

    We are so very sorry for the bad situation we are currently in together.

    Failure"

    Wow, that sucks big fat monkey balls. Glad I pre-ordered through their own store (...checking...) almost exactly a year ago. Hope it comes through soon and everyone that PledgeMusic charged will get their money back.

    Heard about the shit going on with Pledge and am glad I never bothered with them this time around. I ordered a t-shirt package from them for the Fantastic Planet Live thing they did and ended up cancelling it. Can't remember why, but there was something I didn't like about it at the time. Hope everyone who ordered from them gets their money back without too much hassle.

    Everything I'm reading (which is admittedly about a month old at this point) is that Pledge Music is asking for patience as they explore partnerships and acquisitions that will help to bring their accounts current by the end of April. Right now I'm down about $90 between this and the new Ladytron vinyl, and I'm not sure how much patience I have left? (The Failure album was purchased almost exactly a year ago). I bank with Chase; I'm sure they are aware of what's been going on with Pledge Music so hopefully they'll be easy to work with regarding getting refunded if that's the route I want to take, and then they can attack these assholes head on.

    As pissed off as I am to be waiting this long with no product and out almost $100, there's probably hundreds of artists that are owed perhaps tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. This whole thing is a catastrophic mess.

    You shouldn't wait on any more updates or news from the bands you follow or from Pedge itself. You should dispute the charges immediately. If Failure is telling you to dispute, then thats what you should do. This is not gonna end up ok for Pledge. They're done imo.

    Yes. When the band is telling you to dispute charges, get it done yesterday because that shit isn't going to end well. It may be a period of time depending on their contract being voided through legal means or a label buyout before new physical products are agreed upon and manufactured. Therefore, only way to protect you the consumer is to dispute with your bank ASAP.

    I caught the tour kickoff in Phoenix a couple of nights ago, and they blew the roof off the place, as always. I picked up the new album on 180 vinyl ($70 - ouch) and this gig poster, which I think is pretty fucking badass:

    God damn. At that price I probably would have taken a gamble on Pledge eventually getting their shit together (and being able to dispute the charge of they don't).
