A few things:

1. Vinyl pre-order will be back tomorrow.
2. If this song is to "Suburbia-y" for you, you're in luck because that's why we chose it. The rest of the record varies quite a bit more.
3. Anything you're pissed about at what's probably an irrational level ($500 preorder, vinyl only in bundles, price of shipping, etc etc) probably had nothing to do with us. We spent weeks on the phone arguing over every detail of this shit. Trust me, this is a lot better than how it could have been.

is the initial pressing going to be more now or are you just releasing more red to the public? i luckily snatched up one of the blue bundles. Thanks for being rad and fighting so hard for the fans and our money, it really means a lot to know yall are looking out for us.

When a few of you guys recognize it and thank us, it really makes up for the jerks that just curse our name for things we can't help.

The red is going to get expanded. There are five blue left and those will be put with the five $500 packages that didn't sell before we had to pull all the vinyl down if I'm understanding correctly.

that sounds reasonable. the packages are really priced well, the only point of minor complaint could be shipping, but thats probably even out of merchnows hand, its just something we're going to have to start dealing with in the US.

I saw yall in birmingham friday night and it was great. thanks for showing love to our city. we dont get a lot of the major acts very often (everyone goes to ATL) so its always a treat when it does happen.

I'm sure it's been a crazy day for you guys, but I wanted to say you guys put on one of the best live show's I've ever seen tonight in Wilmington. Easily the best I've seen from TWY. Everything was spot on.

I am fascinated that no one has asked about your sketch comedy pilot

I feel like it'd be an odd combo but it'd be really cool if TWY toured with The Menzingers. And if The Swellers opened that'd also be great

Just preordered the Greatest Generation Super Bundle yesterday, and I’m sorry to say it has left a bitter taste in my mouth. I don’t want to be THAT person, but it feels like Hopeless Records/Merch Now is ripping off TWY fans. I paid $500 plus shipping for a lot of really cool stuff (I’m really stoked about the test press and drum head), including “free admission +1 to a 2013 TWY show,” but when I got the order summary it listed the admission as costing $100. The most I’ve ever paid for two tickets to see TWY is $42.00. I called Merch Now to see why the tickets are valued so high, keeping my fingers crossed that maybe it meant there would be something really cool included like being able to see the sound check, only to find out that the $100 was basically an arbitrary number used to push the package up to $500. If admission were really free, the package would be $400. (As hopeless as I knew it was, I still had kept my fingers crossed that maybe the $100 included backstage access so I wouldn’t get the shit beaten out of me during a TWY concert for once and could watch them play in peace. Then the Merch Now guy brought me back to reality. Only in dreams, right?)
I’ve met the guys from the band on several occasions and they seem like really genuine people who care about their fans and would never knowingly take advantage of them. I’m more than happy to support the band by buying their music and merchandise and by going to their shows, but I like to know that I’m getting my money’s worth because I don’t have a lot of it. (If I was rich, I wouldn’t mind because I love the guys and want them to be successful. I’d throw in another $500 just for the hell of it if I had that kind of money.)
Maybe this is divine retribution for illegally downloading The Upsides, GSOI, and WBPF before I saw them for the first time with New Found Glory in 2010 so that I’d already know their music at the show. I thought I had atoned for that by buying close to $1000 worth of their vinyl and going to five of their shows. (Besides, I don’t think anyone here believes in divine retribution anyway.)
Anyway, love the new song, can’t wait for the album, and I’ll probably get over the extra $100 when I have the test press in my hands.
