There was a presale link posted on here a few days before but I never received one personally via the usual mailing lists. Not that I could go unfortunately.
I know, I managed to get tickets at the presale, someone posted a link on twitter, but nothing through management
It was quite odd. I'm signed up to every Damon / Blur / Gorillaz list going, like I'm sure most of us are but I didn't hear a peep about a pre-sale. And I'm with you windymiller on the days of proper releases with planned singles and going to a shop (remember those?) to buy a thing (remember that?) and waiting all the way home on the bus to listen to it. Still, I've inadvertently put myself in that ignorance is bliss position by being missing in action last night during the leak. Maybe it's what I wanted all along... :lol:

So shit is happening right now then, eh? It looks like an album announcement or even just a single announcement could be imminent. What a time to be alive!!

After Hallelujah Money I didn't get too excited for the album but after hearing the tracks last night, especially Charger, I couldn't be more excited. FUCK YES!!

Oh yeeeeeees! I hope it will be available in regular stores. Anyway, this is great news - finally it is possible to get a copy for not such a ridiculous price as before

That looks excellent. I have an original press of Demon Days upstairs which I picked back in the day, glad I did so. Didn't realise the cost for them had gone up so much! Anyone know why that is?

I think the main problem was that the initial run was very limited - 2005 was probably the lowest point in vinyl sales, it's a miracle Parlophone released at least some records at all. And the lack of re-runs made the prices skyrocket. Right now it is the only Gorillaz record that I want to add to the collection and damn it would be quite expensive if there were no re-issues :lol:

Anna wrote this "There will be exciting announcements this week"

so only 6 days to get a full information. now im 99,9 that we get new single, new video and all details to new album. We are waiting to this 2 years, so 1 or 6 days don't make a big differences.

Yes, you're right. I am looking forward to buying and listening to the album in the traditional way, as windymiller mentions. :D

The tracks featuring Grace Jones, Mavis Staples and De La Soul sound intriguing.

The dragged out promotion for this album has been really annoying. I think they've squandered a lot of the hype already.

Agreed!!!

So tedious, until there is some new music it really is a drag

So what is this "join the club" thing? How long do I have to be part of it?

And why is it already sold out for the Demon Day's month without me realising I had to be quick? :( Is there any chance this will get into stores properly?
