Ltd Sean Nelson 7" on No Sleep Records (requires full 2014 vinyl sub)
Not sure what the material is, but No Sleep Records appears to be pressing a 7" of something of Sean's sometime next year as part of their annual vinyl subscription bonanza:

Quote:Special Subscriber & Friends ONLY 7" Series featuring Sean Nelson of Harvey Danger, John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday, Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids, and Geoff Rickly of Thursday (includes a box to hold all of the 7"'s)

https://store.nosleeprecords.com/vinylsubscription

It's $225 for the subscription, and the 7" is subscription only, so make good choices. In a nicer world, they'd also issue a Merrymakers LP (that'd be more or less in No Sleep's genre wheelhouse).

That's a lot of Sherman tanks!

there are so many awful things i would do to have merrymakers on vinyl. but, i tweeted sean, asking if the 7" would be stuff from make good choices, and he replied that there would be 2 (maybe 3) songs that would be 'definitely not album tracks!'

with any luck there will be some leftovers that they sell on the site or something. or maybe sean might get copies down the line. stupid collector bait.

crazy inflated price, i am a member of the graveface records club, and that includes ten releases, most being full lengths (on all formats released, meaning if it was releases on cd and LP you get a copy of both as your one release) for half that price.

I'd buy it if a 7" of "Wedlock" and "Holiday" were included, but that's pretty much the only way.

We can talk about it later
But there's no later
Is there?

RE: Ltd Sean Nelson 7" on No Sleep Records (requires full 2014 vinyl sub)
Honestly, this sucks! I don't have a job right now and it is one thing to scrape together $20-$30 to buy an album, but $225 for a 7" single?!?!? I don't like this business model at all. It is unfair. I understand that I would be getting 12 other albums and all sorts of goodies, but I just don't want any of those albums and really can't afford to be trying to sell them on ebay to get back the $225 I fronted. I am so disappointed. I hope there is another way to get this 7" and I hope that at the very least someone here is kind enough to share the tracks. I am all for paying artists for their work, and I would be happy to give Sean $20 for the 7", but there is no way for me to get $225 together for a bunch of albums I don't want when I am struggling to pay my bills.

*sigh*

If anyone get's the 7" please send me a pm with pictures of the sleeve and lossless copies of the songs. I only ask because there is no way I can get the money together. If I could afford it, I would, even though I think it is wrong.

i gotta say, i could make a post EXACTLY like that. i've no job, no money, struggling, and i'm a HUGE fan of sean's. i'd gladly pay for anything he puts out, but i just can't make this one happen... and there's only a limited number available. what a bummer! good luck to everyone else.

Let's just put it on a file-sharing program so that no one has to pay for it!

Clearly, the price should be raised to $1,000,000, with the understanding the first buyer somehow is obligated to give it away to everybody.

It seems as if the general consensus is that no one is happy about this.

Too right, Johnny. Maybe it should be titled "Single for the 1%ers" to go along with its shiny million dollar price-tag.

I'll be honest, I'm happy about this, because I bought the subscription. Additionally, if the (rumored) reissue of Merrymakers is out on No Sleep I'll get a special version of that as well.
