Dinosaur Jr. invite fans to send back ‘bad’ version of new album

Some versions of 'Farm' were mixed incorrectly

Dinosaur Jr are offering fans the chance to exchange an incorrectly mixed version of recent album ‘Farm’.

A message posted on Dinosaurjr.com explains that some versions of the album were mastered too loud, adding that fans can send the album back for a replacement if they wish.

The message reads: “Please note that on the European CD version of the ‘Farm’ album there is an audio problem. This occurred while duplicating the original master in a duplication studio. The problem occurred when the duplicate was produced, as the software program used for this duplication ‘doubled’ the sound layers. This resulted in a 3dB increase in the overall sound volume.”

The message goes on to offer fans a free ringtone by way of an apology, explaining: “Both PIAS [Recordings] and the band would like to offer the fans something extra for this inconvenience, so in addition to a replacement CD, PIAS will email you a link to download an ‘Over It’ ringtone once they have received your bad copy.”
