That'd be nice since it's been forever since they put up the preorders and since they last updated everyone on what was going on with it.

Fingers crossed that this ends with Mark punching RJ in the face.

I doubt Mark will be able to get answers. RJ is the only employee left at MTS (Ryan and Dan no longer work there) and he has been MIA for a couple weeks. He deleted his personal facebook and twitter accounts. There have been no updates on the MTS Twitter and Facebook.

I know I've personally sent a few emails to rj@mtsrecords.com with no responses yet.

Also, I've filled out complaints at www.ic3.gov and the NYC DCA hoping that it will force RJ to respond to customers who want their refunds.

Luckily, TOYPAJ will get another pressing from Hot Topic maybe sometime around July.

Not "a delay" but many delays.

The latest delay was pretty much the last straw for everyone who pre ordered this.

I'm waiting on a purple Enema of the State LP but it's coming from the US so I'm prepared for it to take a while. I just hope it's not coming from MTS...

Hahah Good

I think this debacle is going to put this "label" out of its misery.

Don't think MTS can recover from this.

I dislike blink 182, but love vinyl, so I've been following this whole debacle for the past few months. MTS is a clown-act of a label, and it's crazy long this whole fiasco has gone on for. I'm interested in seeing how/when this comes to a conclusion. I can't lie, it'd be pretty cool to see that dude RJ get what he deserves. It's looking like he will though, people are pissed to the max.
