"KILL FOR LOVE" SOLD OUT !



We Are Shocked To Announce That The First Pressing Of "Kill For Love" On Magenta Vinyl Is Out Of Print In Less Than 12 Hours. In Case This Happened, We Put In A Reorder Two Weeks Ago On Ice Blue...But We Didn't Know They Were Going To Fly So Fast. There Are A Few Copies In Shops In North America & In Europe, But They Won't Last Long. We Apologize To Anyone Who Wasn't Able To Get Their Hands On A Copy. We Thought 10,000 Copies Would Be Enough For The First Run. We'll Keep You Posted Here For The Update On The Repress. We Called The Pressing Plant This Morning For A Rush Order. 

If You Live In San Francisco...The Band Will Have The Last Available Copies At Their Mezzanine Show On August 31st. WOW! Thanks For The Support Everyone. We Are Literally Speechless.

My absolute favorite band in the wide world! I'm so sad I missed out on the vinyl. I hope the repress is available soon and also on coloured vinyl. Sad, sad day indeed.

REPRESS ON ICEY BLUE VINYL...EACH PRESSING WILL BE A DIFFERENT COLOR. WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO GET THEM ASAP. WE WERE TOTALLY UNPREPARED BY THE HARD COPY DEMAND. WE KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE GOOD...BUT THIS WAS INSANE!

I got mine! And the blue is also tempting...

Don't act so surprised! You guys made one of the best albums of 2012!

Is there any chance of some of the older out-of-print stuff being available in the store in digital format (old tour releases, the Nite EP)? That would be awesome!

Italians Do It Better said...

WE SLOWLY WORKING ON REMASTERING A LOT OF THAT OLD STUFF. THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT MOMENTS...GOING TO MAKE A PROPER COLLECTION SOME DAY. VINYL TOO. XO

How can I subscribe for newsletters, for Jesus sake?

Ice Blue sounds great! im kinda glad i have to wait for the repress.

James P. said...

I knew I should have ordered it last night, but I was thinking I was going to just wait till After Dark 2 came out. Damn, that magenta looked really good.

Anonymous said...

Lol guys. You have so much going on with so many projects. It's amazing that you can even keep track of shit. :)

I guess I'll wait for blue too. Already for sale for $48(!) on Discogs, $26 on Ebay. Jeez.

Italians Do It Better said...

DON'T BUY ON EBAY...YOU'LL BE ABLE TO GET THEM FROM US FOR 13 BUCKS AND IF YOU CATCH THEM LIVE...THE BAND ALWAYS SELLS THE DOUBLE LPS FOR 10 DOLLARS AT THE MERCH TABLE.

Was there really 10,000 pressed as mentioned in the update or is that a typo? 1,000 sounds more realistic...

brad said...

Thank god for Amoeba. I just bought a copy from them and they have like 14 more in the store.

Italians Do It Better said...

HA HA..YES 10K WERE PRESSED...10K MORE ARE BEING PRESSED RIGHT NOW. WE ONLY DO RUNS OF 1000 FOR THE BULK DISCO SLEEVES. XO

I'm listening to it now and these are the only words that can describe the music, "Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!"

Dear Italians, I'm so pleased you are keen on Burgess & Beethoven for when I put on your album, "It was like for a moment, O my brothers, some great bird had flown into the milk bar and I felt all the malenky little hairs on my plott standing endwise and the shivers crawling up like slow malenky lizards and then down again. Because I knew what she sang." See you guys at Mezzanine!

IF BOOKMAT HAS THEM NOW....THEY WILL BE PINK.
IF THEY ARE GETTING THEM IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS...THEY WILL BE BLUE...

Paula said...

Hi! I'm in love with Chromatics and I have 2 questions for you...
1. Are you going to repress silver vinyl of 'Night Driver'? Today I wanted to buy it and it's sold out too!
2. How are you going to inform about next copies of 'Kill for love' and 'Night Drive'? I don't want to loose my second opportunity!

Thanks and congratulations for your success!!

Italians Do It Better said...

SILVER NIGHT DRIVES ARE GONE...BUT WE HAVE A REPRESSING ON ELECTRIC LAVENDER COMING IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS...KILLF FOR LOVES WILL BE HERE AT THE SAME TIME. XO

Max said...

When do the KFL orders begin to ship out?

Italians Do It Better said...

ORDERS USUALLY SHIP OUT THE SAME DAY. NEXT DAY AT THE LATEST. IF ORDERS ARE PLACED ON A WEEKEND...THE FOLLOWING MONDAY MORNING

Anthony said...

So us in Europe miss out again, cost of shipping over here is ridiculous so can't order direct. The band seem to be against coming over to the uk to do a proper tour (we dont all live in/near london) too so can't buy from a show.I've pre-ordered on amazon but doubt I'll see that.

I ordered day it was announced and still nothing. Mail order was faster when it was in New Jersey. I live in California and it will be entering the third week soon.

billy crystal said...

also waiting. received paypal payment confirmation but still no shipping confirmation.

Anonymous said...

got my kill for love 12'' today from rockoutindie us shop via ebay - the cost was not crippling with postage to uk and much as i would rather order direct from idib they didnt have a pre sale, the vinyl is lovely but im sure it was presented as icy ivory - dont mind but was a surprise to find pink!
idib presale is the way forward surely to give everyone a shout?

Casey said...

I am in the same boat--got a paypal confirmation on the day of KFL's release, but no further communications. Halp!

Paul said...

Same hear. About to hit week 3...

Anonymous said...

When's it going to ship? I ordered on 8/26

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if the first run has been shipped out yet?

Anonymous said...

its been three weeks and still nothing. there are like 4 copies sitting on the shelf at my local record shop

Peter said...

OKAY i got my order today. Looks excellent. :) They're coming guys.

Anonymous said...

Ordered on 8/27 and still no record. I guess 10,000 vinyls prob takes a really freaking long time to ship out....

Ordered this magnificent album a week or two ago form the idib mail order store (together with 'Night Drive' & 'In the City' - unfortunately no more vinyl of the latter, bummer!) Of course, I had heard the tracks already, because I listened to the digital download files you get with each order (fantastic!).
The sticker on my copy of 'Kill For Love' said 'Icey Blue Vinyl', which surprised me a little, since I had ordered a "2xLP Magenta Vinyl" from their mail order store for sure… . Little did I know that there was already a second printing of this album, but I found that information soon on the internet. After opening the plastic wrap very carefully, I was even more surprised to see that the vinyl was actually… magenta!! Cover sticker says 'icey blue', but records are magenta! Hmmm…?? Again, I search the web and then it all becomes clear: "Magenta vinyl limited to 15,000 copies. First pressing of 10,000, and a mistake in the first half of the second pressing resulted in another 5,000 in magenta. Remaining 5,000 of the second pressing are on "icey blue" vinyl." (source: discogs). Quite amazing! I must have gotten a copy from the first part of the second pressing, 'a mistake' so to speak. That also explains why there are still some magenta vinyl versions available from the idib web store, and they are advertised as such.
Anyway, I'm happy to have found you, Chromatics. Your music rocks. Btw, I LOVE 'Cherry' and 'Ceremony' (me = big Joy Division & New Order fan), so, get your new albums out soon!!!!
