What does everyone have (or what have you seen) for the hardcopy versions of this release?

So far, I’ve seen a UK version, and a DE promo.

heh. it’s been too warm to hibernate.

pre-orders aren’t \"confirmed\" releases, in my opinion. remember the zeitgeist pre-orders? things turned out different too. the best example is the vinyl, of course, but i remember a german red zeitgeist was also \"confirmed\" at that time.

where did you see the german promo of american gothic? how does it look like? i assume you didn’t find it on amazon where people could pre-order it.

Oh, hell no. LOL. It was on eBay. Looks like a CD-R. Not even sure if it comes in a jewel-case or not. The UK version I have not actually seen for sale, other than preorders. The promo however, is on it’s way as we speak. :D

It looks like the 4 songs comprises the EP can be bought individually. And there goes our saving again :P .

No, what it means is that the four songs are available in the ZG deluxe edition, but also separately – through AG.

So apparently I don't post very often these days

i think that the comment has nothing to do with the cd release. it’s about how it is released on itunes: you can buy zeitgeist "deluxe", which includes the 4 american gothic tracks, or you can buy the tracks separately. if i’m not mistaken, there isn’t even an itunes release of american gothic as a whole.
note that the american gothic tracks are an itunes exclusive in the us, so it’s understandable that they don’t mention the cd release.

i only bought the uk version so far, but i can already confirm that the version that is sold in belgium (and the rest of the eu?) is different.
different matrix code, at least. there might be more differences, but not that i know of…

where did you "post" them?

the thing is, i have both versions now, so i could easily make scans of both and upload them to the collection. but if you already made scans and sent them somewhere…

i will see.

edit: i got the scans. will look into it later today.
edit 2: aah, too much to do and not enough time. i will upload the two american gothics tomorrow.

, for the release details of the Australian pressing of American Gothic. Hopefully this is Australian pressed, the stock code listed is the same as the EU release though.

Thanks for this news Bryan! Do you happen to be from Down Under, which might make it easy for you to check in the shops soon? And then maybe maybe maybe help us worldwide order it somewhere in Australia (or is that address you provided already your online source of choice maybe)?

Yes I do Live Down Under New Zealand actually, I am certain this will be manufactured in Australia, time will tell though. I am guessing they may sell these American Gothic EP’s at the concerts being played down here soon. I have got my tickets for 24/3/08 already I cannot wait. Last time the pumpkins played in my home town was 1996 and boy that was good!

Here is a little heads up for you compulsive collectors, note the country of origin is listed as AUSTRALIA, not a bad price either!!!! http://www.redeye.com.au/answer.asp?rei … rch=search.

I have ordered many items from this site and these people are great, you will have no problems. They had some great pumpkins items a few years ago but most have been sold.

P.S Note the release date of the 1st of March.

Thanks Bryan, so good to have friends all over the place! Let’s wait for your confirmation on the EP being genuine Australian (sold in New Zealand), and I will give it a shot for my collection of course. Maybe Australia/New Zealand will have a promo copy also?

In the meantime I found 2 other promo releases for American Gothic:
