Shop Radio Cast are proud to announce the release of Blink 182's "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket" LP with three bonus 7". Tests have been approved and the project has entered the final production stages. We anticipate these to be ready in April however, we have set release date for May 7, 2013 to avoid running into any delays from Record Store Day pressings. The first pressing will be limited to a total of 2,500 copies and will include a never before released foreword written by Mark Hoppus. Complete details are as follows:


Vinyl Info:
- Triple Panel Gatefold jacket with 7" Inserts
- Each 7" housed in a glue pocket jacket with a full color CMYK insert
- LP is housed in a full color Inner Sleeve
- First pressing, limited to 2,500 include Mark Hoppus Foreword
- First pressing LP is pressed 180 Gram Black and includes a yellow, green and red 7".

Acknowledging this was to be previously released by another label, Shop Radio Cast is offering a priority pre order and a 10% discount to those who previously pre ordered with proof of purchase. To receive the 10% discount and assure advance pre order:

1.) Sign up an account at Shopradiocast.com if you do not have one. Do not sign up for an account if you already have one.
2.) Email the following info to Blink@shopradiocast.com

Proof of purchase – Email confirmation or a screen shot of Paypal payment
The email address you used to sign up to at ShopRadioCast.com
Advance Pre Orders will occur early March, however we encourage those who purchased to set up their advance purchase and discount immediately.

Here are the answers to a few FAQ's we anticipate:

1.) Can I buy the 7" without the LP?
No. Unfortunately due to licensing restrictions the 7" are not to be sold separately and are only allowed to be sold as a LP &3x7" bundle.

2.) When will pre orders launch?
Pre orders will launch early March. Those who previously ordered this who follow the instructions above will receive an advance pre order, allowing them to purchase 48 hours prior to the public. We will announce both the public and advance pre order date and time next week.

3.) What is the same and what is different about how this is being pressed?
The artwork components will remain the same as they were supposed to be. Each set will include a reverse cardboard triple panel gatefold with three 7" pockets. Each 7" will be housed in a full color glue pocket with insert. The LP will be housed in a full color inner sleeve. There will be NO gold foil '10th anniversary' stamp on any of the copies.

We have changed the vinyl pressing from various variants to one variant. We have done this to match the foreword quantities allowing an opportunity for people to purchase this without having to compete for various colors.

4.) Will you repress once first pressing is sold out?
We are not sure at this time. We do know that after this the foreword will never be released again. As well if we press with the bonus 7" again, they will not be on color.

Yes. I didn't know what it was going to be until this morning.

Just because that's how much SRC/Hot Topic/etc. charges for gatefold LP's and 7"s, doesn't make that what they "should" cost. A single LP should cost no more than $15, regardless of gimmicky packaging. A 7" shouldn't cost more than $5, regardless of whether or not it fits into previously mentioned gimmicky packaging.

You should not be okay with someone charging you $50 (before shipping) for 45 minutes of music. Next thing you know, every label will follow suit.
I can't think of many single LPs I've bought for $15.

Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

I thought the red eye pressing of Cheshire Cat was when they were just "blink"? How's that work? Either way I'd kill for a copy of the original pressing.
Not that I know of ... I've never seen a version of it with just "blink."

Never mind, I just checked and I guess you're right. Don't know why I thought that.
Hah. My copy/the packaging is pretty beat up ... but the record plays fine, so I'm ok with it.

of course it will. Which will probably set a precedent which will stink!
For bigger represses ... I feel like the precedent is already there for some reason, I feel like I've been paying 30+ for big albums and 25+ for newer shit pretty frequently now.

It's just a bummer because I think the Hot Topic pressing of TOYPAJ that was 180 gram (released last February) was only 19.99. hell the original MTS pre-order for this was 40.

the times are a-changin'
Haha. Yeaaaaah. Feel like once labels figured out how they could make some $$ off fans they went right for the fucking gut ... would rather pay the $ upfront, I guess, then 4x the amount on eBay.
