    Yeah Ive seen a lot that at local shops too and its super annoying. That kills the whole beauty of digging and then just the satisfaction of finding something at a good price instead of walking into a shop and its on their wall for quadruple.

    You can still blame the majors for that. Thats the biggest issue more than anything. Universal or Warner could just build a plant and roll out all the reissues to their hearts desire and not worry about a backlog, but they probably know that this market isnt going to sustain itself for much longer so they dont wanna invest long term. If I had that kind of money I would make one just for small bands and that at least cuts out a lot of the bullshit. Artists in general now are at the mercy of pressing plants and have to change their release windows to reflect that. Like Deafhveans record was done for a long ass time but they had to wait til the vinyls would be ready within a reasonable time.

    THIS! I don't collect vinyl, and I certainly don't know alot about the in's & outs of the industry, but I have a passing interest. I asked in the Vinyl thread here about that massive lacquer plant fire and if there were any updates on how/if that has affected all these manufacturing slowdowns, but no one knew. I just searched again about some news on that front and the newest thing i could find was this from last March (the fire at Apollo Masters in Cali was last February):

    So while actual new plants need to step in to help as @zecho wrote, maybe this lacquer plant fire is still part of the problem too. I am really surprised we haven't seen any new pressing plants pop up...even in a boutique way. I guess it's just too massive of an undertaking.

    So had a friend at their show last night, sent me a boot as he recorded video of practically the entire show. Essentially the new album in its entirety and then a handful of older tracks. Man, it uhh….was very underwhelming to watch live. And then going through Dream House etc just seemed like the first time I’ve seen/heard them full on just going through the motions.

    I feel like I have to keep restarting that this is one of my favorite bands, but I saw them live a few years ago and found it underwhelming, as well. In general I've found that's the case with blackwyal bands, though, so it may have something to do with how acoustics interact with that style.

    Also just feel like I read these vinyl stories in every thread and just makes me glad I no longer purchase physical media

    Just got back from tonight's show and it was great to hear blast beats, double bass drum and screams again. The new material somewhat translated well live, I dug it either way. The track "Mombasa" was a standout for me.

    Random tidbits:
    George moonwalking to the new tracks.
    Great to hear Sunbather live again.
    Dan Tracy is an amazing drummer.
    "Great Mass of Color" got the biggest reaction from the Infinite Granite set.
    Nothing from the Roads to Judah album.

    Take a picture with your phone! Every place I've been that requires proof of vaccination accepts pictures of your card.

    Haha good luck with that. I remember when I bought it for 30.00 I thought even that was steep for a 2 split song single.
