Those 8 minutes we got free reign I'm sure made the difference between some of us getting one or not. You guys rule!

Yeah was a nice gesture and 2pm eastern time means people in Europe are actually awake, last time preorders went live I was sleeping...
I was also sleeping when the tweet about alphabasic being down went out a few days ago and it woke me up, made me run to my laptop, only to find out that preorders still hadn't started :/

Just got mine. I didn't have my eye on the forums but I sure leapt at that Facebook post.

Yeah, a genuine thanks to Mark here, it was pretty much bang on when you said it would, and several of us hardcore fans are pretty pleased! :)

Looking forward to pressing play on this one... wearing my new tshirt... Nice.

Damn, I just found out that if you pre-order through Bandcamp: http://theflashbulb.bandcamp.com/releases, you get to pick a song of your choice to preview in its entirety. Between the group of us, and the free preview of
- One Melted Face on soundcloud: (soundcloud.com/bennjordan/cake)
- The Bridgeport Run on bandcamp: (theflashbulb.bandcamp.com/track/the-bridgeport-run), and
- I Saw the Sky on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HCOixYhNeY

We might have heard the whole album early!

YES! #2895! Soooo lucky, saw the post on facebook maybe an hour or two after he posted, still got a special edition pre-order :D

And then I see the T-shirts! #2899 woooooooo! got one of them as well :D

Big thanks to peeps on here giving the heads up as well (even though I hadn't checked the site, silly me). I know many people would have appreciated the heads up - after previous releases, I knew alphabasic would do this for us eventually. Perhaps in future we could do one step better, have an email sent out to forum people or a mailing list?

Only sad news is that i'm going to be away until the end of November :( so looks like I wont actually be able to listen to it until then - the cd will be sitting at home until i return :P Oh, the excitement builds and builds!

p.s. anyone know details on the sizes for medium and large? from experience they can greatly vary... I grabbed a medium.. but if there more left tomorrow i may grab a large as well :P

This album is shaping up to be quite interesting.

Every large shirt I've gotten from Alphabasic has fit me well. (~6' & 165lbs) My parents bought me a large shirt on their trip to Italy and it was pretty small so I understand your concern.

By any chance would anyone know if these Hardscrabble shirts have the same sizes as the Arboreal (green) shirts? I have an XL Arboreal shirt and it fits quite well, but other XL shirts are too big for me so I don't want to get the wrong size.
