Label the record was initially released: I Hate Records - Cat#: IHR CD 011
The album is now deleted from the labels catalogue, with the following statement on the labels website on 2006-06-26:
"PRIMULA PESTIS WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE THROUGH I HATE
As a consequence of Steve McMillan's criminal acts, that he has confessed, we have decided to delete the THEE PLAGUE OF GENTLEMEN - Primula Pestis album. Thus the album will no longer be available through I Hate. We feel truly sorry for the other members of TPOG that has to suffer for Steve's deeds but we must do what we feel is right.
REGARDING THE ARREST AND IMPRISONMENT OF Steve McMillan OF TPOG:
We are shocked, disturbed and saddened to learn about the accusations of multiple child rape (and due arrest and imprisonment) directed at THEE PLAGUE OF GENTLEMEN front man Steve McMillan (real name: Steven Wackenier). This all feels like a bad dream that one just wants to wake up from, we feel sick to hear of these disgusting crimes. We hereby completely disassociate ourselves from all Steve’s acts, deeds and comments in this case and express our sympathy for his victims and all other innocent people (band members, family etc.) that has become directly or indirectly affected. Our memories of Steve, in connection to the Doom over Sweden tour in 2005 and when enthusiastically discussing the details of the release of Primula Pestis etc. is now soiled, dirty. To conclude: I HATE DOES IN NO WAY SUPPORT THESE KINDS OF CRIMES AGAINST INNOCENT VICTIMS AND WANT NO CONNECTION TO THIS KIND OF FILTH WHATSOEVER! ROT IN JAIL!"
