Guys please remember we're only hearing part of one side of the story. Let's wait til we can get a comment from Thinking or another member of the Black Box crew before passing judgement.

from the Black Box facebook page:
OK folks, we need to update you regarding the Author project - it hasn't gone as well as we hoped, and vinyl has been delayed due to pressing problems. This has been purely down the label's failings and not the fault of Ruckspin and Sparrow - we're sorry that we haven't been able to deliver their amazing music to you in the way that was intended.

Apologies for the silence on the matter, we are working hard to fix things as soon as possible and will make an announcement regarding the vinyl release asap.

In the meantime you can still buy the CD / Digital in all good shops and we recommend you give the LP your full support!

jack sparrow1 wrote:Hello, Firstly i wasn't going to comment on the situation and bring it into the public domain but i feel as though i should say something as it has gone way past what we are comfortable with. Some of you might be wondering why the latest Author album has fallen quite thin on the ground in terms of promotion/manufacturing and general awareness...this is because in short the label made an absolute mess of everything and to the point where me and Dom have little or no prospects for the future of the album. We did work very hard to come with another album and at the time we were negotiating contracts everything was legit and we were happy, over the following months the project ran away from the label for whatever reason.

The promotions company/us have been left stranded with nothing to go on. Financially/Mentally this is a massive turning point for me personally and i don't think i can continue within music for much longer due to the circumstances of this release. I wouldn't say Author is ruined but i think this is the point where we say enough is enough and cut our losses for the project and move on. We still have no word from the label and no info on manufacturing and i have physical copies myself to listen/look at. Devastated to say the least

I am sure whatever difficulty they are going through will be rectified
Fucking annoying to hear this shit has happened again, sorry to hear this u guys deserve better than this + your music really should be getting licensed all over the place, sure it could be with the right linkup

This, would have been very disappointing if it didn't make it to vinyl, one of my favourite albums from last year.

I wonder if Heny.Gs is still coming :(

Everything came together in the end!

Thanks to those who have been patient and reached out about the vinyl situation.

It will be distributed through SRD so I would expect it to be in most shops by the start of March maybe a bit later.

We will have a few copies available on the website authoruk.com also if it sells out everywhere else.
