 Has Buzz recently commented on why the 3 month delay on the full length release? Yeah, I know Covid shit, plant closings, etc. Who the fuck makes the CDs for Ipecac? Are other Ipecac releases getting this long a delay? Maybe they need a better manufacturer. Haze is still pumping out AmRep CDs. Zappa Records announced a new live 4-CD 1970 set last month that's out in a few weeks through Universal.

It's likely the albums were manufactured ages ago and they're sitting on them during the covid-19 thing because Buzz/Dunn can't tour during it and putting out an album without any touring to promote it isn't the greatest idea.

If that's so, then that's a bad business strategy. Put the fucking thing out and sell some units. Tour when you can, and if the album has been selling well, people will turn out to see it live.  A band like Clutch puts out an album and there's literally a 1-2 yr cycle of touring with breaks before the next album comes out.

Im going to say something a little controversial now......

In my opinion the album isn't actually that great.

Don't get me wrong it's good. I've listened to it a few times now and it's certainly that but i don't personally deem it a record i feel like going back to over and over again. Which, for instance is something i definitely more often do with a recently released Melvins album. For me Gift Of Sacrifice is not a patch on his first solo record. Although to be fair, this is quite clearly it's own different thing and shouldn't really be compared to what came before. Im really eager to hear what the rest of you folks think about the record in due course. Whether you agree in some sense with my own take or have very different impressions.

I haven't heard it, I will wait and pay for it like an honest to god fan.

Don't worry, i'll be buying it too. I always do with the Ipecac Melvins/Buzz stuff. Think the only recent thing that got a wide release which i didn't buy was the Dale solo record. I wasn't too into that one. I do always like to hear an album first before buying it or not.

If the LPs are already pressed and packaged and in "storage", I'd bet they're sitting in boxes in an uncontrolled environment, just in time for summer. Buyer beware! :lol:

I like the record but by the time the CD shows up to my house I got a sinking feeling my excitement might dim a little. This actually happened with some records that got delayed last year.

Dez Fafara from Devildriver on his new album release:

Quote
According to Fafara, the original plan was to release "Dealing With Demons I" a few months ago. "The record that was done — mid-2019, it was in the can, done, both records — [but it was pushed back] because of everything we were going through as a family," he said. "I wasn't about to leave my wife and go on tour or do any of that... Also, I've gotta say, a lot of bands now are pulling back their records, pulling back their music, [because] it's not a good business move to release a record — you can't tour on it, et cetera. I'm doing the exact opposite. It's what I've done my whole life. And I'm releasing music during this time.
