    Unfortunately, Kamelot won't have it available. Make a long story short - no vendor at PP USA reports their sales to SoundScan, which reports their data to Billboard magazine. In other words, they care about chart position now. :(

    Not gonna break that street date. Sucks. I will buy this as soon as it becomes available, you can bet on it. I'll buy the special edition. But I'll still hope an advance copy leaks before the show, because I'm chomping at the bit!

    I'm a betting man that at least one 10th of the attendees at Progpower will have the new Kamelot before ProgPower. Its a little something called illegal downloading, and its what is killing the music biz.

    I'm OK with this. Even if the disc WAS available at ProgPower, I was planning to wait to buy it from a local store after the weekend. My rationale for this is that buying it from a store that doesn't expect to sell many copies will hopefully encourage the continued ordering and stocking of similar releases.

    Don't tempt me. I HATE this debate, and every time someone brings it up, I want to punch them repeatedly in the face.

    Use the fact that Kamelot will be there and turn it into a hell of a promotion stunt for both the band and you guys. :lol:

    Are there any vendors (besides Exploding Ned) who are bringing vinyl this year? That's always my favorite part of buying things at the festival is my vinyl haul from Ned, every year. Anyone else bringing any? And yes Lance, this is a subtle hint to you to start carrying vinyl so I can pillage it from you while working, bwhahaha.

    This.



    Sheeesh, now I'm wondering how hard reporting to SoundScan can be. Two labels/distros at Dragon*Con already do so, maybe three: Metropolis and Dancing Ferret for sure, and possibly Middle Pillar as a distro....and it's not like they're THAT big......

    I've reviewed and signed the reporting forms myself as the venue rep, and gotten the traditional, incredulous "Tuesday after" phone call from SoundScan wondering how it's possible that a band could have sold 1,000 copies of an album at one gig. (Answer: it's not just one gig, it's 4 days of merchandising in front of 30k people.)

    Since I have a chance to ask in advance this time - will anyone have Poets of the Fall's "Carnival of Rust"? It apparently is kind of hard to find stateside.
