motw news!

We finished the MOTW recording last weekend! It still has to be mastered, but that will happen over the next couple weeks. In the meantime, I'm building a website for the release. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough funding to make any hard copies, so we're going to release online. Our plans are to release as high-quality mp3s and also as 24-bit .flac files for audiophiles, all at the same download site.

The album sounds amazing and we are very happy with it! We felt like there wasn't any reason to put out "promotional info" like titles, or clips, ahead of time since there's no CD to buy. So all that stuff will become apparent at the actual release.

Someone was asking about gigging for the record - some of the band talked about it a little. I think if we got invited to do a festival date, we would do it. But definitely no touring will happen.

Make sure you set up a torrent, or your site may go down :) A lot of people are very excited about this.

The thing with no CD release really fucking sucks. I fucking hate virtual music, I want to own an actual burned copy. A CD always holds the soul of the musicians and is a piece of art on its own.

You can still have album art with a digital release. NIN did that with Ghosts - just included a PDF file.
