What happened to the Cosmic Egg preorder?

August 15, 2009 by  

Earlier this week, the Wolfmother Facebook group announced details of Cosmic Egg and the new single, New Moon Rising, which debuted on Australian radio yesterday.

However, there was also this news:

Starting this Friday, visit Wolfmother.com for details on pre-ordering the album in your part of the world. Cosmic Egg will be available in a number of formats including CD Album / 2LP Vinyl / CD Album + Vinyl combo / Limited Edition Box Set and more.

So it’s now Saturday across the whole world (I believe?!) and still no news. All that happened on wolfmother.com was this, which indicates they intended to post some news but it didn’t quite work out:

You can preorder the album import on Amazon.com, but it won’t be out until October 27, which is a lifetime after the Oct 8-13 we know the album will be out, so not very useful.

Anyone know anything about this?

Update:

Just a few hours after this post the wolfmother.com site has been updated with the following message:

The time is almost here for Cosmic Egg pre-orders! We are currently working out all of the details for pre-orders to make sure we give you all the best packages possible. Expect details to surface next week about new merch designs, exclusive bundle offers and more! Stay tuned to make sure you are among the first to experience the psychedelic journey that is Cosmic Egg!

Maybe they realised that some people would be refreshing the site every 5 minutes waiting for details!
