Entreat Plus US vinyl canceled?

Update 2: Retailers are being told that the US/Canadian release has been canceled. If you want it, looks like you'll need to import it. (Thanks Mike and Steve)

Update:
Insound has a new release date listed for March 22nd. If you don't want to wait to see if it comes out, Amazon UK seems to have it, but with an additional 5-9 day wait for shipping.
(Thanks Jeremiah and Deadboycraved)

What's happened to the US vinyl release of Entreat Plus? Originally scheduled for release on Jan. 11th, then pushed back to Feb. 22nd, it's now listed as "not available" by Amazon and CD Universe. A trusted friend contacted WEA about it, and was told "this thing disappeared…Not on any schedule anymore; was not released anywhere they were aware of in US…nor is anything else (scheduled) for remasters, dvds, etc."
(Thanks to Friend of CoF for helping with this)

  1. I just checked my order on Amazon, and it stated "not available" Very upset about this, especially since it was ordered a month and a half ago!

  3. Wait a minute...it didn't get released in Europe, either? So the only release was that limited edition that Universal sold online?

  6. But you couldn't buy it from them if you were in the US/Canada, due to WEA owning the rights over here. But then they screw over the fans here by not releasing it. Nice.

  7. Amazon.ca is still listing it as "Not yet shipped" but
    "Shipping Estimate: Mar 9 2011 - Mar 31 2011

    Delivery Estimate: Mar 11 2011 - April 5 2011"

    I pre-ordered mid-February.

  8. I bought the vinyl from Universal and I live in the US.
    There wasn't a problem for me at all.
    I own number 862.

  9. I guess only 900 copies found their way into the mailboxes. Not only me, but a lot of other fans didnt got it. never ever order from Universal.

    but off topic: Does anybody know where to find the yahoo sessions 2005 as audio files?

  10. B. Dee - Are you serious? You ordered it yourself off of the Universal website to a US address? Didn't get a friend to order it for you from Europe and then have them send it on to you?

    Universal even stated this in their official video for it: "Just to clarify - this Ltd Ed Marble version is ONLY available through the Universal Official store and will not be available through any other retailer. Sadly we can't make it available to US & Canadian customers because of rights restrictions, however there will be a standard black vinyl in the new year which will be available globally and through all retailers."

  11. Yes, I'm serious. I had it sent to my home address (although it took 3 months to show up). It was shipped from Zurich Switzerland with the return address "Citipost Europe Ltd". I was unaware anyone else had any problems with it. Sorry that so many people are unhappy about the US version not being released ...

  13. Wow! Well congratulations on getting one, B. Dee!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well it's good to see Insound and Amazon Canada saying it might be out in March. At least there's hope that WEA is only delaying it and not canceling it altogether.

    Thanks for the help with that, Drowsy and Jeremiah.

  15. buy it on amazon uk.. whats the fuss?

  16. DBC - As I posted in the other topic:

    Yes, we could, if they even have it in stock, which I'm not sure of, but we shouldn't have to.
    WEA had a US release scheduled, so fans pre-ordered from US retailers, some to save money, some to support Cure vinyl releases in the US.

    I'm hoping it's just another delay, and not an outright cancellation, but if it is, we will just have to buy it elsewhere, I guess.

  17. sorry craif its late here ... brain dead .just read yr other post ...

    and replied .
    -its definately avaiable here to those who cant wait to find out though :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks, DBC! Maybe that can help a few fans out. Yes, they seem to have copies, and just a 5-9 day wait for shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  19. its only 5 - 9 days if you get free shipping .. otherwise 1-2 .. in the uk anyway :)

    not that that matters to you guys :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. No, I meant that they don't actually have it available to ship immediately, so it takes an additional 5-9 days for them to ship it, no matter which shipping method you use. That's why I was questioning whether they actually had them in stock.

    ReplyDelete
  21. ah ..it says that- but i ordered miine a week last saturday and got in on the follopwing tuesday .. so i know its def. available and doesnt take long .
    now its bed time

    ReplyDelete
  22. well, I would have loved to get the special marble vinyl, but it was somethin like 50 US dollars, and I just cannot afford that right now... So I guess I'll be waiting for the US release *shrugs, is pissed at Universal as always*

    thanks so much for looking into it, Craig, I'm extremely grateful :)

  23. Received my email from Amazon this morning that said my order was canceled because the item was "not available."

  24. Check CureConnections for an official statement, apparently it is cancelled.

  25. I had a friend in Belgium forward me the marbled vinyl. Glad now that I went to all the trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  26. God so it won't come at all now? I ordered this in early December. It's not like we were even warned they might not even be making their product or shipping it or whatever their excuse is?

    Okay. Done ranting.

    I really hope they figure something out.

  27. These are going to go for insane amounts on eBay now.

  28. so glad they didn't allow us US citizens to buy the limited edition marble version...fuck this

  29. It would appear that the Entreat Plus vinyl has made a re-appearance in the US and Canada after all.

    If this store is to be believed (most of their stuff on there site has been confirmed already), then the Cure's Entreat Plus will be out on RECORD STORE DAY on April 16th, 2011.

    See the list that mentions it here:
