Not really, its only early days for Hideous records. I for one wouldnt want to take the risk of hoping to sell a lot more than is realisticly possible.

If they ended up with a lot of unsold records at this point it would probably be a big financial burden for them.

That said, they sold 500 vinyls for Keep It To Yourself, sure they could shift more CDs than that.

But when they have the risk-free alternative of the download market, the "cost" of limiting the CD run to 500 will be largely diluted. I think it's a smart move given the circumstances.

I can't actually remember if it's already been mentioned but is the single going to be released as a digital download too?

fantastic news.hope they put the preorders up before i spend all my loan though.its going far too fast for my liking and i fear i will have spent it by the time the preorders are up and then i miss out,and cry,and become an alcoholic,and then a bum and then die from starvation and reuben will partly be responsible.so get the bloody preorders up!
