As previously reported, Thrice had planned to release a special edition ‘Alchemy Index‘ vinyl box set last month.
The box set will be limited to 3000 copies and will feature both albums ‘The Alchemy Index: Volumes I & II: Fire & Water‘ and ‘The Alchemy Index: Volumes III & IV: Air & Earth‘ pressed on four EPs.
However, the band has announced that it will be delayed…
"Our manufacturer has just informed us that the Thrice vinyl box set of The Alchemy Index will NOT meet the expected March 10 street date. We sincerely apologize for the repeated delays in getting this out to all of you who pre-ordered the package. Please know that this is the most elaborate vinyl set we’ve ever attempted and is literally being put together by hand. We underestimated the time necessary to complete each piece."
