Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Sometimes lauded as "the blueprint for the emo genre", Thrice's The Illusion of Safety combines heavy, tireless guitar riffs and at times screaming hardcore vocals. Peaking at 14 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and 20 on Heatseekers Albums chart, The Illusion of Safety helped define and spearhead the post-hardcore genre and is an exciting ride the whole way. 

Limited to 750 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Thrice's The Illusion of Safety is pressed on Green with Black Splatter vinyl at GZ Vinyl. The 1 LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
