Just opened my wallet super wide! Had to get the signed test press on vinyl too. Just 25 made. Love the "Dark Matters" title. Perfect. Less sold on the cover art. Love the Dave CD tribute. Woo hoo!

Very nice, the signed test press had sold out by the time I'd reached checkout.

Great work and well done to everyone involved, this is exactly the sort of release this album deserves.
I've gone for the £60 bundle myself.
This will have a very good chance of a high chart position upon release with all these formats and pre-orders, dare we dream of a number 1?

I think the cover looks brilliant, best one in decades, and a pretty good title too. Woo!

Pre ordered the standard CD and live tribute.

Looking forward to hearing it (can’t really believe it’s actually happening!) but not convinced by the cover. Maybe it’ll look better as a physical object, but from here it looks like a bit of stock imagery with the Stranglers logo bunged on top. Kind of like About Time or Coup de Grace...

Looks like the new keyboard player has a got a fucking huge nose.
Seriously though the cover is ok but I just wanna desperately hear the new music.

Very interesting day... just looking at the album artwork. There's a disclaimer that product may differ. Isn't the title written in the Dalek font from the old Doctor Who comics? ;-) Dalek Matters!

Great title, great cover, best in ages IMO.
Good to see a great bundle choice. Well put together. Congrats to those involved

Its good to have the buzz of a Stranglers release again. Been too long, and wasn't sure if that would happen again.

No doubt, the whingers will all appear, don't like the title, don't like the cover, don't like the font.

Will it, if everyone is buying from the merchandise store? As I filled in the form just now I wondered whether all the pre-orders we're doing here would count, or if we'd be better buying from the high street when it's released.

It is, I wonder if the buzz will remain for the next four months.

I wonder why they didn't choose to delay it a day, and release on September 11th? I don't know when the album chart is calculated, perhaps a Friday is better than a Saturday. Looking forward to it, anyway.

Ordered and looking forward to hearing it if the snippet of Water is anything to go by.
