    I don’t get all the complaints.  These guys are in their fourth decade as a band, still going strong, about to announce their biggest tour in years, a new album (granted, I’d rather it not be a new album tour), and they played a silly game with the fan club email today. So what.  It’s cool they still exist and we can go see them this year.  
    We pay a premium fee every year and don’t get much in return without having to fork out more money, except a monthly newsletter and we didn’t even get that. I’m sure Tuesday will be a great day of announcements, but give us something on the tenth.

    Exactly, except I'm excited for new music

    If we get a new album to stream on Tuesday...yay and good job 10club.

    New single on Tuesday....marketing flop. No need for a tease [private listening party anounced publicly] on top of a tease [instagram post] on top of a tease [newsletter] . All for a new single

    All true except that todays email was a swing and miss.

    I'll give it to them. This was clever.  I saw all black and figured I was looking at dark matter in one way or another 
    Maybe the album will be called Smell the Glove ?

    That is what I was thinking. My favorite band has turned into Spinal Tap.

    You realize that new single is off an album though right? The album announcement IS a big deal in and of itself.

    So we’ve got 10 pages of nonsense in 5 hours and folks are calling this a fail? Seems like a win to me. Got all us old folks crying, all the youngsters laughing at us and a Rick roll mention. I’m still “new” to the club here but I’ve been chuckling all afternoon reading comments. Thank you

    Doubt Pearl Jam or the Tenclub wanted pages filled with nonsense.

    Bewilderment is not the desired outcome of marketing. A win would hsve been 30-50 pages, and mainstream coverage. 

    Gigaton buildup was great. This? Just odd.

    Marketing flop today. A cool thing would’ve been 10C exclusive stream of the new single. 
  • kmcmanuskmcmanus Posts: 403
    I feel like there’s some anger that we didn’t get a boring old nothingburger email from people who would have complained if it had been a boring old nothingburger email. What exactly were all of you expecting? The good stuff is literally hours away, stop being gutted & get excited! 
    But yeah this woulda been way more effective if we hadn’t already gotten the album title.

    I'm not buying or listening to any of Dark Matter due to this outrageous marketing flop!
  • DFA1974DFA1974 Posts: 3
    I love complaining about things too, but I don't typically sign up for newsletters from the thing that I'm complaining about....One day, there won't be any more newsletters, or tours, or music, so we should be happy if we get anything at all. And you don't have to pay to listen to them...

    For those unable to get the links, you're not missing much but if you highlight the screen you will see the following:


    Then, if you click one a pre-save, and then re-highlight the screen you will see the following text:

    Do you have give access to apple music to access your library? 
    Looks like you do. 
    I guess I’ll just wait until the album comes out.

    For anyone bitching about today’s newsletter, look at how much attention this 25 second clip has gotten in the thread dedicated to it. 40+ minutes and it still hasn’t hit page 2. Compare that to the amount of posts this thread was getting at 1:00.

    That's because people were sitting waiting at 10 a.m. Pacific for the newsletter, and many fewer people are on the board right now.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    That’s at least partially true. But I really don’t think adding this 25 second clip to an otherwise normal newsletter would have caused nearly as much buzz as what we got.
