New Spell News
Hello there, friends of New Spell!
When we embarked on our Kickstarter campaign, we were required to do certain things such as: state how much money we wanted to raise, decide on an end date to the campaign, and declare an "estimated delivery date" on all of our rewards. If you review our "estimated delivery dates" you will see that many of them were for May, June, and July 2012... However, we simply didn't realize the various aspects of both musical and non-musical planning and preparation that are required to successfully release an album! At this point we are aiming for an official October 2012 release with some of the rewards being delivered sooner. We thank you and deeply appreciate your patience!
That being said, we wanted to share with you our progress and let you know what exactly we have been doing! A few weeks after recording all of our tracks, we received stems (which are simplified versions of each instrument) and have been arranging the songs, putting effects on them, and making everything sound how we dreamed it would. Next week, we will be turning these stems over to the sound engineer, who will be mixing and mastering. While that is going on, we will be doing a million other things, such as taking band photos, updating our website, creating album art, etc... It's a lot of work but we promise the end result is going to be stunning.
In addition to this behind-the-scenes work, we have also been busy playing shows. We've got two more SF events coming up: Tuesday July 3rd at the Boom Boom Room, and Saturday August 18th at El Rio. We are also going to start booking an album release tour soon, so if you haven't already, please like us on Facebook to make us look really cool to venue bookers!
We have included pictures below for your viewing pleasure, so you can see us hard at work in the studio and on the stage! Thanks for reading, thanks again for your support, and we hope you all have a beautiful day.
