GOOD NEWS… NEW VINYL PRICES.
We appreciate all the feedback over the past week since the announcement of the vinyl reissues.
We hope that you can appreciate that we do not have control over many aspects of this issue.
We completely understand that the prices set out last week were much higher than average and there were a few elements to this –
We were advised that as the pressing run was so small, this increased the production cost. Also, the coloured vinyl is a factor. This is not just one album, but six albums going into production. We also have no control over retailers’ final prices. In some cases the advertised prices were just listed in error.
The good news is that we have spent the past week working with the good folks at Sony Music and EMI to achieve a better result and in a nutshell, they have increased the quantities of the pressing run for each album which brings overall costs down and is now reflected in the final, much lower retail price.
Something for Kate have always done our best to keep our ticket and merch prices down, much of the motivation for reissuing these albums was to make them all available again so that people had a better option than the over inflated prices on eBay. We are excited to have these albums out on vinyl again and we appreciate your patience.
If you have already purchased these albums in the past week, you will only be charged the new, lower price upon shipping. ( Hang tight on ‘Leave Your Soul to Science’ coloured vinyl -price reduction switching over shortly)
Cheers, Something for Kate
