Woohoo!! (But please tell me it's not just a European release. It's going to release in the States, too, no?)

An Aussie site had it on the 24th too, so I imagine it's worldwide.

I wrote and e-mail to ANTI about the Norwegian release date and this is what was said I said:
can you shed some light on it---"Mr. Waits' Norwegian distribution company has confirmed the release date for "Orphans" is July 24th.----- does that mean it's coming out in Europe before the US???? thanks

his response:
Orphans is not coming out on July 24th in Norway. It was supposed to come out this summer worldwide but the release date was moved a week or so ago.

It will come out when it is good and ready.
