Losin' It In 2013

I loved the Danger Zone 7 inch that Losin' It released last year. Man, that record was a blast, and I listened to it a ton. Therefore, even though money was a bit tight at the end of 2012, I still couldn't resist jumping on the pre-order package deal from Life To Live.

My pre-order copy came with this weird "guy on a tricycle" insert...numbered 2 out of 5. I'm not sure what the purpose of this insert is. Strange.

The album itself is great, and is a nice extension of their first 7 inch, and still maintains that fun Lockin' Out/Mental vibe.

100 on pink/purple swirl. 50 of them numbered for pre-orders.

175 on pink.

As much as I like this record, I've got to say that the packaging on this sucks. The layout and design are cool, but a bi-fold cardstock cover is a cheap way of packaging an LP. If you are going to release a full length album, you've really got to use an LP jacket. This bi-fold sleeve really distracts from how good this is.

225 on blue.

Good point about the sleeve Mike. I forgot to mention that on my blog. It's so thin it disappears into my shelf completely

Would you at all be interested in trading for that one that's #'d out of 5?

Also it's a bummer to hear about the packaging. I haven't received mine yet but it sucks to hear it's not an actual LP jacket. Oh well.

Sorry man. I rarely trade for anything. I'm a hoarder and tend to keep everything.

That's what I figured, I guess it was worth a try though!

About how long ago did you get these pre-orders? I'm just wondering if I need to give it a few more days or if I should shoot the label an email.

Probably got mine a couple weeks back.
