Les Revenants 10" oversold?

It seems that some outlets may have oversold Mogwai's 'Les Revenants' 10" ep on pre-order, and are now cancelling orders or informing customers that they're waiting to find out whether the ep will be re-pressed.

Here's the Boomkat response to a query regarding an unfulfilled order this week:
The 10" has been officially released but unfortunately we were
massively under shipped on this one. The item is currently out of
stock and I'm waiting to hear from our distributor whether it will be
repressed any time soon.

If you haven't received your pre-order, it might be worth chasing it up. As far as I'm aware at present, there are no plans to re-press the 10" vinyl ep.
