AJR Push Back Album Release to 2015

Delayed! But with good reason.
Emerging pop trio AJR are pushing back the release of their full-length debut Living Room from September 30 to February 2015.
The delay allows the band the necessary time to record a batch of newly-written songs that reflect their continued creative development. In the meantime, the band is readying a five-track Infinity EP, which is due for release on September 23.
In a letter to fans, the band explained the reason for the date change and delay:
It is posted below and unedited by us.
"We have a lot of news for you, so we wanted to write you another letter. Over the last few months of touring, we've been writing like crazy (a lot of cool innovative stuff) and we have a whole bunch of songs that we want to put on our debut album, Living Room. Unfortunately, we don't think we're gonna have enough time to produce all this stuff before the release date, so in the meantime we're gonna put out a brand new EP! It's called the Infinity EP (yeah, you guessed it, 'Infinity' is our new single), and we're stoked to show you guys another stage in the development of AJR's sound. Expect Living Room to drop in February 2015.
"Also! We're gonna be putting out a bunch of new videos (originals and covers and maybe a webisode or 2), so you can look forward to that.
"Finally, we're going on a HEADLINE TOUR this fall. We will be posting all about the dates and ticket sales over the next few weeks on twitter and facebook...
"We can't wait to see you guys. Sorry about pushing Living Room a little. We really want to get it right. You only get 1 debut album. :) Till next time! – AJR
Are you bummed or are you happy with giving AJR more time to perfect their debut album?
