PELAGIC RECORDS has been releasing 2 new albums per month consistently for the past 4 years, and we will keep this pace in the future. Our vinyl, CD & digital download flat rate subscriptions provide an easy and affordable way for you to keep up with our busy release schedule without missing a thing. Besides, they come with a lot of cool extras and give you access to special limited items!
What’s in it for you?
Becoming a subscriber gets you all our new releases in a format of your choosing, plus access to an exclusive members’ section where we’re selling rare stuff from the past which won’t ever be available (again) anywhere else. You won’t be missing out on the most limited and most colourful editions of our upcoming releases, and you’ll get a 2nd chance to purchase stuff you may have missed in the past which is now only available in our exclusive membership section. Plus, it’s a great chance to get to know some of our bands that quite likely you wouldn’t discover otherwise!

We aim to ship out on February 15th, April 15th, June 15th, August 15th, October 15th and December 15th every year (subject to change). You will receive the releases of the month you subscribed in, onward.
Your subscription will always renew on the 6th of every uneven month (Jan, March, April and so on), regardless of date you initially subscribed. So if you subscribe on March 3rd, your renewal will be on May 6th. If you subscribe on April 22nd, your renewal will also be on May 6th. You will not be charged more, just it can be the case that the first two payments can be closer to each other.
We are shipping bi-monthly subscriptions mid month of every even month (February, April, June, August, etc.). You will always be getting the subscription items of the month you are subscribing in.
Examples – bi-monthly:
- If you subscribe for bi-monthly on the 10th of March, your first delivery will ship mid April, and will include the March and April subscription items combined – easy.
- If you subscribe for bi-monthly on the 20th of March, it’s the same.
- If you subscribe for bi-monthly on the 10th of April (or any other even month), then your first delivery will only ship mid June (as we can’t ship out May releases before the release date, and likely won’t even have them in the warehouse yet!), and will include the April, May and June subscription items combined.
- If you subscribe for bi-monthly on the 20th of April, it’s the same.
Please respect that in order to allow us to keep this offer sustainable and fair as well as being able to plan ahead, our subscription models have a minimum duration of 12 months.
Adding extra items:
Please note that in order to keep this subscription affordable for you and feasible for us we can not allow you to add any extra items to your subscription shipments. If you would like to order anything else (and use your 10% discount) you will need to place these orders via pelagic-records.com and they will ship to you separate from your subscription parcels.
We offer 2 different shipment plans, monthly and bi-monthly and for each of these plans Insured (FedEx) and Uninsured (Small Parcel).
- If you choose Untracked Shipping the annual cost for the monthly subscription is only marginally more expensive than the bi-monthly subscription.
So if you go untracked: Choose monthly!
- If you choose Tracked Shipping, the annual cost for the monthly subscription is twice as high as the bi-monthly subscription.So if you go for Tracked: consider bi-monthly!
- Tracked shipping times are between 2-15 days usually . Untracked parcels usually take between 5 (Europe) and 20 (World) days, depending on where you live.
- Note: untracked means uninsured! 99% of parcels do arrive without any issues, but we do not take responsibility for any lost parcels, and there are no tracking numbers!
We will put rare items up in the membership section occasionally when they pop up in the warehouse, or when we get returns, etc. These will be very limited quantities and quickly gone. Check back frequently, and please do not expect to always see items for sale here. The 10% shop discount does not apply to any exclusive items in the membership section.
