S.I.D. VINYL PRODUCTION DELAYED: OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Well, we guess we have some bad news for you. Since we first started working on this label, and in 24 releases so far, we have never failed a day one. Fortunately, we never had a physical release delayed past the official date and everyone who bought a copy from us got it around the announced release date or, in many cases, even the day before.

Now, we’re facing the first delay and, of course, we’re talking about a vinyl here. “City of Chemistry”, the 12” vinyl EP from Italian band S.I.D., has suffered a delay and we’re still not sure when we will get it.

All files were sent on January 21st, 2022 and confirmation/approval for the vinyl production was given a few weeks later on February 11th. So, from this point on and according to the estimate timings given, we talked to the band and decided to choose an official release date past the production’s turnaround times, which was first set to July 29th. But, since we only got the test pressings on June 21st and we are all aware of the major vinyl manufacturing delays the worldwide music industry is currently facing, ourselves along with the band have decided at some point to set the release date even further, in this case to October. That’s when we publicly announced October 14th as the official release date for “City of Chemistry”. This was made this way to make sure there would be no chance of a delay whatsoever, given the time we thought it would be enough to avoid any. So, we kept working on the promotion of their new EP and the band started booking a European tour to promote the new release and to sell it at their shows.

Now, as we speak, we still don’t have a confirmation and not a single estimate time for the stock to be delivered is given by the pressing plant. We now know as much as anyone else. Pre-orders can’t be shipped at the moment because, obviously, stock didn’t arrive yet and S.I.D. have started the first leg of the scheduled tour without any stock to sell at the official presentation shows.

As many of you may already be aware of, this is the current state the vinyl music industry is nowadays. So, to sum things up, even with so many months between February and October, we still weren’t able to deliver this release on time. Despite all our efforts and the chosen release date being so far away from the turnaround times given, it still didn’t arrive on time.

Maybe we get the stock within a week, two weeks or maybe in one or two months but at this point we really don’t know. Of course, we’ll be updating everyone on this situation, and we will keep pushing the pressing plant, in order to ensure you get your copies as soon as possible.

We’re really, really sorry for this inconvenient but there’s one thing we are indeed aware of, which is plain and simple: FUCK THE VINYL TREND! FUCK ALL MUSIC TRENDS!
