Thrice's recently unveiled vinyl box set of the Alchemy Index has been delayed. The label explained:

Our manufacturer has just informed us that the Thrice vinyl box set of The Alchemy Index will NOT meet the expected March 10 street date. We sincerely apologize for the repeated delays in getting this out to all of you who pre-ordered the package. Please know that this is the most elaborate vinyl set we've ever attempted and is literally being put together by hand. We underestimated the time necessary to complete each piece.

The vinyl box set is limited to 3000 numbered copies and will feature The Alchemy Index: Volumes I & II: Fire & Water and The Alchemy Index: Volumes III & IV: Air & Earth pressed on four EPs.

Each of the 4 EP's will be pressed on 10" colored vinyl -the Fire EP is red, Water is blue, Earth is brown and Air is on clear vinyl. The discs will be inside a hand-bound hardcover book complete with lyrics, liner notes and commentary from the band.
