I want to get it, but I'd like to know when it ships. I move in May.

I ordered from IQ themselves and it arrived a week after I ordered it, so pretty quickly. I'm not sure about LaserCD. You might want to email them first and ask.

I ordered from IQ around the same time as Marc and got it around the same time (I'm in the western US), so it seems pretty consistent.

Okay, I just went for LaserCD since I don't know how long it will be up for.

Best of luck. At least with LaserCD, you probably won't have to be home to sign for it when it arrives (like I had to with ordering from IQ directly, which is why I missed it for two days on Friday and Saturday after two failed delivery attempts, but I got it on the following Monday). With LaserCD, I would hope they get their pre-order allotment in fairly soon, and considering how quickly mine arrived from the UK, once they get it in, it shouldn't take long to get from LaserCD to you, as they are pretty quick with shipping as well.

Yeah. I figured I'd be paying less through them, so I might as well hop on it while they have the option available.

So, I've spent some time this weekend with the album Frequency. I quite like much of it (the title track, Life Support, Stronger Than Friction, and Closer) - where do I go next?

I remember checking out The Road Of Bones a year or so back, but it didn't grab me then. Perhaps another try?

Agreed. Although Road of Bones is quite amazing, so give that another shot. But Ever is a wonderful album, as is The Seventh House.

From the latest IQ/GEP newsletter:

We’re getting rather excited about the imminent (hopefully) arrival of the triple vinyl release of ‘Subterranea’ live at De Boerderij. This gorgeous package includes a triple gatefold sleeve featuring the prison bars on the front cover with a nifty ‘die-cut’ in between the bars (creating gaps in the cover so you can see the inner sleeve below). Pressed on three different colours of marbled vinyl, each disc has its own printed inner sleeve which shows through the bars of the front cover when placed in the first fold of the gatefold, essentially creating six different front covers!

To add to all this gorgeousness the package also comes with a six page full colour lyric sheet featuring, er, the lyrics and the story of the show by Peter Nicholls.

We know you’re going to love this release - once we get confirmation of a delivery date we’ll add it to the IQ web store as a pre-sale.

Only vinyl?

I actually have a really nice turntable…but I need a new stylus (and my system needs better speakers) so I don’t really get the chance to use it very often.

It’s a nice “coffee table” piece, but it would be worth more to me of it came with CDs. (Especially since the live Subterranea performance was video only on the last boxed set.)  :\

Quick question for the IQ enthusiasts in the thread: I'm seeing there are two versions of The Road of Bones, one with 2 CDs - is it worth getting?

ABSOLUTELY!!!

It’s not just a bonus disc of throwaways or demos. It is a full blown 2nd half of an album.

100%. The second disc is a little more experimental/raw, but just as good as the first disc!

Attended the gig this Saturday in Milan! Wonderful setlist (the same as the last couple of concerts, except for the encore: instead of The Enemy Smacks, we got No Love Lost + Headlong, not bad anyway...), wonderful performance!
it was really apparent that they enjoyed the show themselves, participation of the audience was top. Can't wait for the next chance to see IQ live!

For IQ and vinyl fans, they've put up a pre-sale for Subteranea Live triple vinyl album!

https://shop.iq-hq.co.uk/products/subterranea-live-vinyl

Quote
It's finally here! Recorded at De Boerderij, Zoetermeer in October 2011 this is a complete live performance of IQ's double concept album 'Subterranea'.

Presented in a triple gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves and pressed on three different coloured marbled vinyl discs this is one gorgeous triple album.

The bars on the front cover feature a die cut so that the inner sleeve appears through the bars. Each inner sleeve has two different 'central diamond' pictures so in effect there are six different front covers to choose from.

Also contains a six page lyric sheet.

Note: this is not the same recording as the 'Subterranea: The Concert' CD that was released in 2000.

'Subterranea Live' Triple Vinyl Pre Sale Now Open!
Yay! We're reliably informed that the Subterranea Live Vinyl will be delivered later this week so we've added it to the IQ Store as a presale. Orders will be shipped out once we've taken delivery of the vinyl.
Orders from the EU will be shipped from Germany once the stock has arrived there.

Just saw this! Very exciting!

Also, they recently found a box of Tales From A Dark Christmas CDs and I managed to snag one (before they sold out), along with the Tales and Ever Anniversary remixes and the IQ logo enamel pin.

Even though I already technically have the Christmas disc from the IQ Archive artbook set, I've always wanted the single disc on its own, so I'm happy to snag one for only £8.

I just recently dove headfirst into this band. Been spinning Road Of Bones for a few weeks now. Can't seem to be able to stop. I now have physical copies of all studio albums from Ever to Resistance. Have digital versions of Seven Stories into 98 and The Lost Attic. Trying to work my way through it all.

Exciting news! This band has climbed into my all-time top 10. Road Of Bones owned me for a solid year. In a current ranking it would be in my top 5. Yes, I think it's that good. Can't wait for new music.

I remember someone at the old MP forum pimping Bones pretty heavy for quite a long time. I was trying to remember who and you just so happened to be who came to mind.  :lol

I keep forgetting who (and that makes me feel like crap. But it’s one of those things where you meet face to face once every 5 years and in that 5 years you’ve had at least 6 major life crises, and then it’s like “pop quiz! Who was that guy who showed you that albums 5 years ago, and your ADD is screaming “I don’t even know what I had for breakfast THIS MORNING!!”  But I digress…) but I ran into someone from here at the Transatlantic show in Seattle back in 2014 when the Seahawks were winning the Super Bowl, and he insisted I pick up Frequency at my first opportunity, so I did. And I was absolutely floored by that album.

It took me awhile to pick up ROB, because it was a 2-disc import and it was expensive. But I loved Frequency so much that I bit the bullet and picked it up. I was never sorry I did that.

From there I went back to Tales and worked my way forward. I think I can now say that they may have passed up Haken as my #3 all time favorite band. Just really upset that I didn’t check these guys out a long time ago. I always saw their albums on the rack, but I was listening to much heavier stuff at the time and the record store guy was always giving me the “it’s ok. It’s not heavy at all. Sortof on the Styx side of things). Not completely inaccurate from an American perspective, but I would find out later that it fails to do it justice.

Meanwhile, I discovered them around 2004/2005, not long after Dark Matter came out, and it's been a 5 year wait between studio albums ever since then. I suspect the new one probably won't come out til early 2024 just to keep up the pattern.  :lol

Dark Matter, Frequency, and The Road Of Bones all came out in the summer of 04, 09, and 14 respectively, while Resistance came out in October of 19. I think if we're lucky, we may get their next album before next summer, but I'll probably expect a May/June release.
