I ordered a signed colored vinyl is this still happening? There no way I can see to cancel my order, pledge has not emailed me back from any of my questions, I am at a loss. I keep seeing this stuff for “unsigned albums” what about the singles limited edition vinyl albums? Please respond, I have reached out to you on Instagram with no response.

Band is responsible for this to sort It. It's known as fraud. Pay back the fans who put in trust and do the right thing. If you don't then move on

Hey, I ordered the autographed, "Have Ladytron Clean Your Flat and Detail Your Car Package" and I have not yet received an appointment date confirmation.

WOW! I was finally able to stop listening long enough to write a fan letter. I have listened to it every night since it "dropped" and I can't wait to hear it again tomorrow night. If you don't come back to South Florida I will shoot this unicorn.

Statement from Ladytron

We began our Pledge Music campaign around a year ago, and it worked well until it became apparent that the company had hit financial problems, which were not the responsibility of artists who had placed their own and their audiences’ faith in the platform. We were given assurances that things were in order, and so we worked through in good faith to deliver the album, which we did. All that was left to do was for the album to ship on February 1 to those who had pledged, which we were assured would happen.

We have been watching the unfolding situation at Pledge over recent weeks with concern. Pledge has been telling us that they are in negotiations to be acquired or work with a new partner. Behind the scenes, we have been patiently and silently working to ensure that everyone who supported Ladytron and this new album received their copies in a timely manner.

We believed that because we were so far along in the process, with the albums already manufactured and sitting in a fulfillment centre awaiting shipment, that we would be able to make this happen.

We have been in constant communication with Pledge and the fulfillment company hoping a solution could be worked out. Unfortunately all were refused because of legal or other grounds.

We will continue to seek a solution while Pledge is working through it’s potential acquisition or new partnership.

However, we also understand that some may prefer not to wait. The album is released via !K7 Records on Friday February 15 and will available in shops and online. !K7 can fulfill orders for the vinyl directly via Ladytron’s Bandcamp site. (They sold out of CDs. More will be available in two weeks.)

I ordered a signed copy of the book as well as the cd. Can the band tell us if the order for the book will be honoured too?

Please issue a statement Ladytron. These items are paid for, finished and ready to release... can you get them back? All the other bands with active pledges are telling their fans to cancel and request a refund. It looks like there will be no refund, however, as they've gone bankrupt. We're all rather concerned!

We didn't issue a statement because until yesterday we believed the goods were being shipped. Our Pledge rep emailed last night stating the unsigned orders would be shipped on Friday. She will confirm later today. After that conversation we can offer advice.

What about those of us who ordered signed?

Team Ladytron commented

Hi Avishai. When I talk to our rep I'll have more information about when ALL the items be shipped. Should have signified ALL. Ladytron were and still are planning to travel to the fulfillment center to sign everything so they are ready to ship on Feb 22.

If that plan changes after talking to our rep we'll send an Update.

Thank you! I really appreciate you interacting with us on here to assuage our concerns as Pledge experiences some upheaval.

Anthony Kay commented

Well thanks for the update. I had active pledges with two other acts and they've both posted a statement confirming I should seek a refund and pre-order from elsewhere when they've set up a new shop. One of them has just closed their Pledge down. I hope you get the money we fans thought was going to you... such a mess!

Dear Ladytron,
As we know, there are a lot ot issues with Pledge as I've heard they always have been. My suggestion is that if people wanted to, they could cancel their pledges, get their money back and try to order your new album on other websites. Many artists have done this. There is no guarantee that we will get our orders that were supposed to arrive on 1st February before the official release date (15th) and so I am asking you if this is a good idea.

Julian Matthews commented

There's also no guarantee you'll get your money back .. even if I did see a cancel option somewhere..?

Pledge are not paying artists as they've mismanaged the money... I doubt they'll be speeding to refund pledgers.

Time to look at the Amazon listing .. was the colored vinyl a pledge exclusive and all other stock is black?

Hi Julian. As I wrote above our Pledge rep emailed last night stating the unsigned orders would be shipped on Friday. She will confirm later today. After that conversation we can offer advice.

Retail vinyl is black by the way

Reading about Pledge this morning not looking good I have over £200 on signed bundle plus other items tied up with this pledge

Anthony Kay

Anthony Kay commented

I know. It's really not on. I have other pledges with different acts, too. Plus, I've made about 30 in the past. Every single one of them has had issues... all were delayed, one was cancelled, two never arrived... it's such a poor experience.
