      @favve, I've also received the email that the order has not yet arrived. I'm still waiting on news or updates for the vinyl, too... :/

      Same, no download code in my inbox. This being a music project might apperciate…

      I pledged $125 and haven't got anything yet. Really frustrating. I was excited by the success of this campaign but it really doesn't appear to be working on such a large scale.

    9. Peter Bonte on January 27, 2013

      Is the download code for the pledgers send? I can't find it in my mail box, only the album at full price in a promo mail.

    10. Matthew Knowles on January 24, 2013

      Just had an e-mail from Eric regarding my missing digital download version. All fixed, I'm downloading my copy now. :) Great to see someone dealing with people's issues.

    11. favve on January 21, 2013

      Haven't got my vinyl either, I pledged $125, I received this email back in october: "Your back/special order has not yet arrived. Please know that we are working on getting it for you as soon as possible. As soon as it arrives, your order will be shipped! In the event the product becomes unavailable, we will notify you. Thank you for your patience." has anyone received the same mail? any luck getting your stuff? :(

      Found myself no longer listening to any Amanda Palmer or Dresden Dolls music.

      This has left a sour taste in my mouth. If it were just me then maybe I can understand a bit of a mix-up but seeing so many people not receiving their paid for goods either suggests a lack of mutual respect between an artist and her fans.

      bye bye, I'll chalk it down to a bad choice on my part.

    13. kaunaz on January 8, 2013

      Guys, I'm so tired and disappointed. I want to thank you though, because this is the ONLY place where I have been able to gather information about who to contact.
      I'm from Spain. I purchased the vinyl, but it was never shipped to me, my order information got lost, apparently. After talking to Eric and having to prove I had paid for the stuff, I received an email saying that my order would be reshipped (as if it had been the first time!) but that was a month ago and still no news.
      This has been a very upsetting experience, specially because there is no clear way to contact anyone, if I hadn't spent hours trying to find a solution, Amanda would have my money but I wouldn't have my album.
      I don't have high hopes of ever getting this album, and I certainly won't repeat this experience again, at least with Amanda. Sorry.

      UK here my package arrived today both vinyl and art cards ! After sending my 2nd email Eric got back to me in a matter of hours ! The set is beautiful and I guess worth the wait considering the price payed and what you actually get :)

      Send an email to, I did it several times

      Unfortunately, I still wait for the book & vynil. They seem to have miswritten my address even if I corrected each time. I just received a shipping notification with a wrong adress in a wrong country (even if I received a confirmation that my correction was taken into consideration)

      Send a mail again to just ask to COPY my address, not inventing another one. Stil hoping...

    21. Rand Chua TL on December 24, 2012

      Wish all people here a Merry Xmas & Happy New year! ^_^

    22. TKQwerty on December 21, 2012

      I got everything but the physical copy of my cd, it's been months. Sorry if this has been asked a thousand times, but who do I contact about that?

    23. AnaPhylaxis on December 19, 2012

      Nothing for me still. Oh well. Lesson learned then.

      Hi there, are there any vinyl packages in Europe?

    26. spacedyemeerkat on December 15, 2012

      I spoke a little too soon. Just realised my art book is missing its silver sleeve... *sigh*. I've had to send another email :(

      @Robert Gibney: Yes, for the Summer Mailbox Invasion, total fees were in excess of £100.

    27. Robert Gibney on December 15, 2012

      Spacedyemeerkat, did you have to pay customs tax for your package? Last AFP item I bought was a t shirt and poster wen preordering a ticket I had to pay £25 tax in an item that already cost me £30!

      Bit worried I'm going to have to shell out a huge amount just to receive my package -_-

    28. spacedyemeerkat on December 14, 2012

      I finally received my vinyl, art book and CD today after much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Thanks to Eric for getting to me. The package is certainly lovely.

    29. AnaPhylaxis on December 10, 2012

      So far I have nothing in the mail yet. In the US.

    30. spacedyemeerkat on December 10, 2012

      Yes, I am well aware of that. I was just trying to help a comrade in immediate need.

      As for me, I've now received three sets of seven inch singles but no art book, CD or LP.

    31. Matthew Knowles on December 10, 2012

      I never recieved a download code either.

      @spacedyemeerkat Yes, you can download it from her site but the free version on there doesn't contain the digital booklet, 4 bonus tracks or higher quality tracks.

      It is not only UK. I havent received anything in Czech Republic either, Not even responses for my emails :(

    33. spacedyemeerkat on December 6, 2012

      Seems to be a common UK theme here (I am in Northampton). Turns out my packages were incorrectly addressed although I've no idea why. You can all try contacting Eric through his Twitter account which is @southships

      @Jenny Page, you can download the album free of charge at Amanda's site (

      I am in the UK and haven't received my Kickstarter - Artbook and Vinyl package. I don't have any details of who to email?

    38. Mark Chivers on December 5, 2012

      I am in the UK and have still not received by Artbook and VINYL package. I had previously had very helpful and reassuring responses from Eric but have had no responses recently. HELP!!

    39. spacedyemeerkat on December 5, 2012

      @Rinonka: this worries me because I received another shipping notification from the fulfilment company which looked suspiciously like another set of 7" vinyls.

    40. Missing avatar on December 4, 2012

      I am in the same position as many of you as I haven't received the artbook or the CD. I have written twice and not received a response.

    41. Rinonka on December 4, 2012

      Instead of the art book I've received all the single vinyls AGAIN. Trying to solve that mystery, I see I'm not the only one without the art book? This is getting a bit annoying, as much as I love the album, I really don't need doubles of the vinyls, I can see there are others that are missing them - they should get them. I pledged for the heavy duty art book that is still not here..

    42. spacedyemeerkat on December 4, 2012

      Had enough now.

      Still no artbook, CD or vinyl.

      This just isn't good enough.

      Eric has stated the items have been re-sent to me, allegedly expedited delivery, but nothing has been received. I am almost climbing the walls with annoyance now. I put money in, up front, to support an artist I admire and this is how I get repaid. It's just not good enough. In fact, it's NOWHERE NEAR good enough and I feel like I've nowhere I can make a reasonable complaint that will be listened to. It's utterly shocking that this can be allowed to happen, frankly.

      I haven't received anything yet. I had the same request to update information that I had already given, but I haven't heard anything back yet. Any news on this?

      Thank you for the email info! Much appreciated! and I will download the album for now until I find out what is going on.

    46. Nikos Hidalgo on November 13, 2012

      @Alicia Bator : send an email to eric @ amandapalmer . net
      Also have in mind that you could also download for free the cd from Amanda's site. The cd version which you'll eventually get though, isn't available anywhere else for purchase. That said i hope you get to hold it in your hands as soon as possible!

      Hi everybody.
      Any news concerning the CD/vynil/artbook ?
      I got the Summer mailbox invasion alright... so it's not about my address details.
      I'm kind of worrying here... especially since it seems I'm not the only one having problems.

      Claartje van Swaaij on November 13, 2012

      Argh! I pledged on the art book and then I waited and waited and waited and nothing, and now I check here again to see what is up, turned out that Kickstarted needed additional info (that I had already submitted prior).. I never got any email asking me for the info I had already submitted to them when pledging, so this has been stalling unnecessary! Maybe this is the same case with other people who have pledged? Hopefully everything gets sorted quickly now. Communication could have been better...

      Alicia Bator on November 12, 2012

      I did the $25 pledge and have not received anything yet. I am disappointed as I could have purchased the cd somewhere else and had it to listen to by now. Who can I contact about it?
