    Yes! Just preordered "Ignition" CD. It's arrival will be a highlight of my summer. Can't wait. The feeling is much like the one I had as a kid waiting for Christmas to be able to tear open the packages under the tree. Hopefully, this package will arrive at my doorstep shortly after July 3. If not, I've waited 17 years for this one, I guess I can wait a few more weeks. By the way, album cover design is great. Kind of vintage-like.

    So, the July 3rd release is just a downloading availability from the ShoesWire website and the August 14th release is the 'official' hardcopy CD release date? Any word on a possible vinyl release? And I too really dig the new album cover! Nice work Gary and John. It is going to be a great day when I get to listen to this album from front to back.

It will be available to the rest of the world on August 14th, the official release date. So if you just can't wait until August to get your CD, order it here now, and it will ship on July 3rd. Why two different dates? The CD's are being manufactured right now, and are expected to arrive at ShoesWire.com headquarters on July 2nd. That's when we will start filling orders -- first to our loyal fans, and then to distributors who will do their part and get the CD's in place for sale worldwide by August 14. The final MP3 downloads are being mastered now and will be ready just about the same time as the CD's arrive. So while we here at ShoesWire can get them uploaded and ready pretty quickly, the fine folks at iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon and the rest will need time to do their part too. As for vinyl, Shoes has worked out a deal with Numero Uno to release the earlier albums on vinyl. Unfortunately, they focus on re-releases and not new material. No details on releasing Ignition on vinyl are available at this time. -- Linda"

    The first three songs have not disappointed. They are very much SHOES-like but feel comtemporary. Can't wait to hear more. Good job guys!

    Fantastic News about the new Shoes record Ignition. I just pre-ordered. I'm a long time fan from the late 1970's. Have virtually all the Shoes recorded output. Saw the band perform Live at Duffy's several times (here in Minneapolis) and even 1st Avenue on the Boomerang Tour. You guys need to play some Live Gigs again; at least in the Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota markets.

    It is great to hear the new material. It sounds terrific! I can't wait each day to hear a new song. I don't know how you do it, but each succeeding song seems to be better than the previous one! But they all sound great. Can't wait to get the CD. Thanks Shoes for putting out another CD of new material.

    WOW! i just finished the preorder payment of IGNITION... No doubt this will be one of the highlights of my life this year. Been a constant fan of Shoes sensational music since 1980, his brand new 15 songs are a true gift for sure. Hope my CD copy (looks like placed on a fine digipak, uh?, by the way funny artwork!) fly fast to my sound system at home & car here in Madrid, Spain. Best wishes to the Band and team, and to all the Shoes followers around!!! A super summer awaits with your tunes, pals!!!
