Super limited edition of Arcade Fire's new single

Rough Trade has put up some eye-catching info about the new Arcade Fire single "The Suburbs/Month of May". It's apparently an extremely limited edition. Maybe Merge won't be selling it?
ARCADE FIRE
the suburbs / month of may

Release Date: Pre-Release (Expected on 31/05/2010)

available on the 31st of may but you cannot order this via mail order (if you order - you will not recieve it) - this can only be bought in either the west or east london shop in person. hand stamped white label 12" in a white card sleeve and super limited. it features two brand new tracks from the arcade fire and the first taster for the forthcoming album.

In related news, some Amazon stores and a few US indie record stores and have started listing the single but no mention of a limited edition on either of those places thus far.

Oh and if there was any doubt, Sarah is still in the band.

No. Fair. No. Fair.

You hear that Arcade Fire? NO. FAIR! Why does the UK get EVERYTHING??

But Rough Trade is more affiliated with the band rather than local indie record stores and amazon, for that matter.

In my eyes: ebay a-go-go.

You know, I take that back. My guess is that it must be an over-exaggeration. Like the "limited edition" Neon Bible CD, which was not very limited. VERY limited must mean that it is pretty limited, but not only to record shops in London. I mean, this isn't Coldplay circa 2000 with the Safety EP...

And I assume they'll all be in stamped white sleeves. I got mine from some record shop in Ohio, hopefully it'll pull through.

So it will only be in record form? No album?

John; Maybe. Hopefully it'll become clear in the week to come.

Lizz; Yeah, it's a single on a 12". The album is rumoured to be released at the end of July.

Cool thanks! Hopefully we'll find out some more news soon!
