The test pressings arrived December 20th. All materials are here for the jackets, art is nearly done. We should be printing the jackets in the next week or so and the records *should* ship to us no later than the 20th of december. Depending on transit times, I think we are going to be able to ship the records to all of our kickstarter supporters a week or two before the release date! We are going to do everything humanly possible to do so!
Here's a sneak peak at the cover art progress by Esteban and Zern
Our tenative release date is Valentines day. There is a chance that we'll be able to send these off to all of you that supported us on kickstarter a couple weeks early! No promises, but if we have them in hand, we are sending them to you!
The songs have been lathed in to the lacquer and have been sent to and arrived at the pressing plant. The pressing plant has given us proofs for the center label print and we have approved them.
Test pressing should arrive in a couple weeks. If all is kosher, we will approve them and sit back and wait for the plant to make them (a month or so).
The special cases for the first 100 records have arrived- we still need to print them, but the material is here.
The art has been brainstormed over and we'll soon be pen to paper to screen, squeegee to covers!
Thanks again for the support- we are excited to work on this until it is ready to hand over to you!
Just a few hours and few hours left until we see if we are funded!
Earlier in the week we met up and put the finishing touches on repairing some problems with the tape on one of the songs. It is sounding great! We'll be sending off our mixes to Lucky Lacquers in Wiscosin for mastering and are currently deciding between Rainbow and A+R for pressing.
