It has now been several weeks since we released the latest, greatest Fucked Up album David Comes To Life, but for some of you in Europe who bought the “Buy Early Get Now” option we know you’re still waiting for your bonus 7″s to reach you, which we’re really very sorry about.
There’s different factors which have affected the delivery time of these reaching you, a later than expected shipping from the US manufacturer to our European distributor (Sandbag) meant we were a few days off missing the June 28th release date, which was followed by an internal error at Sandbag where they mistakenly shipped out one of the 7″s individually, followed by the rest of the (three) 7″s in another shipment. We’ve been told by Sandbag that all orders have now shipped (on July 13th/14th) but that before they can claim the items were lost in the post (by Royal Mail) they have to allow 7 days.
This means: your records have been posted and should be on their way to you, hopefully you’ll be enjoying them right now.
But, if you still haven’t received your packages by tomorrow you can get in touch with Sandbag directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) to pass on your details so they can make a claim with Royal Mail. Some people on the Fucked Up Facebook group are reporting that they have started to receive their records, so they are (slowly) getting out there.
We’re very sorry for all the hassle this has caused and are looking to put it right in every way we can.
