Oooo.

I wonder how soon Pledgers will get the digital download?

Would be hoping for more than 10 tracks, but ah well.  Will probably be some b-sides here or there.  Still super excited.

One of Ben's vlogs said there was originally an 11th song, but it sucked so it got cut.  I'll take bets it turns up as an exclusive track on itunes or amazon preorders.

Can't wait to hear this album!

Singles don't really happen that much these days do they?  I suspect what we've already heard about is what we'll get...

I mean more in terms of like "Christian Life" and "Picture Window (pop)"  Just bonus tracks from different sellers.

Has there been an official confirmation that pledgers will get the record earlier than the street date?  I had read a batch of articles from various sites yesterday stating that we would:

From what I read on the pledgemusic site on the release, however, I didn't notice anything aside from that September 18th date.

Yes, pledgers will get it early - I saw it written somewhere.  Normally you get the album digitally pretty much as soon as it's done, but that's the artist's decision.  This is one of the larger artists to launch an album through PledgeMusic, and so I suspect it'll only be released a short time before the CD shipping date in order to minimise the amount that it's circulated online before most people can actually buy it...

When Jukebox the Ghost released 'Safe Travels' this year pre-orders got the digital download a week earlier than street date. I could live with the same timeline for BF5. I know we all want it now, but I do want the guys to get as many purchasers are possible. So they do realize how much of a big deal this is. :D

Oh no! I don't think I'm going to be able to hold out another 49 days, I'll end up giving in and listening to the samples.....

I hate small snippets like that because they're rarely good, but my god I can't wait to hear Sky High en total.
