We have been informed by our partners at earMUSIC that due to the worsening worldwide shortage in production materials, we are currently experiencing delays with the manufacturing of the upcoming SAGA CD reissues.
This will affect the release of the CDs planned for November as well as those planned for December unfortunately.
The CD releases of Detours (Live) and Full Circle are being moved back to December 10 for European territories. For Germany, we have decided to stick to the November 26 release date for the vinyl editions, though our European sales partners are free to decide whether they want to launch the vinyl as originally intended or move it to December 10 as well.
The US release of the Detours and Full Circle CDs remains unaffected at this point and will likely go ahead as planned on November 26. However just to be transparent here, there’s also the possibility that the US release will have to be delayed slightly.
The delays for House of Cards and Marathon have only affected the US release of the CD reissues. In the USA, those two will be available on CD starting January 14th. However, the US release of the vinyl will remain on December 17th.
The release in the rest of the world will also remain with the originally intended release date of December 17th for both, vinyl and CD.
We will provide additional updates if any.
Attention collectors: Wildest Dreams 2021 Missing Album Sticker
We have received a response from our friends at the label regarding this situation:
A last minute issue regarding the barcode for this product was discovered (would not scan properly) and had to be addressed immediately.
The solution was to print a correct barcode sticker to place on the physical product.In doing so, it was necessary to remove the shrink-wrap with the badge sticker. Unfortunately, they had to do without a fresh badge sticker on the outside of the package to meet the shipping deadline.
Knowing how important it is for collectors to have them all uniform, we have asked if replacement stickers are available. If so, we will offer them for the cost of postage from our website.
On behalf of our entire team, we apologize for the unfortunate situation and hope for your understanding.
We regret to share that some of the band’s upcoming shows in Scandinavia have been postponed till 2022. The promoters cite “the unreliability of the development of the CoVid pandemic and possible government restrictions” for their decision. We are awaiting further developments. Kindly check with your vendor/venue for their ticket policies. Check for updated listings here

Dear friends, as of July 1, 2021, we are temporarily suspending sales to the EU until such time as we confirm our compliance with the new directive regarding VAT charges. We are also still trying to navigate compliance with the UK changes to VAT as well. A notice will be posted as soon as we have more information. We apologize for the inconvenience and as always, appreciate your patronage.
Production Update: All orders for our Limited Edition Hoodies & Crew Shirts are currently being produced (printed, cut & sewn) but it appears that delivery will be delayed by at least 1 week at this stage due to an unexpected issue with the payment processor. Our payment to the vendor was processed as an ACH transfer by our bank instead of an instant payment. This was a miscommunication. We apologize for this delay and appreciate your patience. We will provide another update as soon as all items are shipped.
