guys, ok i'll inform you of the real reason that the album has been put back, I am not sure I should be saying but I think you loyal fans deserve to know. apparently Jimmy decided at the last minute that he didn't want the picture of us together in the mankinis, he was moaning that he wanted to wear the green one, anyway we swapped,he has the green finally and me the pink, but it does involve a whole new photo session.

Maybe they have just changed it then without even bothering to inform the band, I know albums get put back for all sorts of reasons such as other big releases coming out at the same time but a month seems a bit excessive,

It may be a marketing decision, Aaron.

Once the record is in the label's hands then the band often have little say on release dates etc............

And lets face it UB40 aren't the biggest selling artists on Universal's roster right now................but that can soon change with this album

Yes I agree but I bet half the artists currently on the label have sold nowhere near as many records as UB40 & with them being a new signing to the label you'd think that they'd invest a bit & time & money on marketing, advertising, promotion etc, hope its just not an album that fades into obscurity?
