Final stages, and moments away from listening!
We just want you to know that you'll be listening to the new album by the end of the week! The mixes are done. Even as I type this, I (Jamey) am giving the final listen to the mixed and mastered album. This is a final quality control action, just making sure something didn't get goofed up at the last second.
THE ALBUM SOUNDS SO GOOD! DJ Sean P did an incredible job mixing. I can't say that enough.
So here we are. If you pledged enough for a free download, keep an eye on your inbox. A free download code should be available for you by the week's end. We want you to download it, listen to it, exercise to it, and tell all your friends! You are our core, and we want you to get the sounds first.
The album is available for pre-sale right now, if anyone asks! It is live in CD form (at a discount) at http://summerofthecicadas.com for pre-order, and we are also selling pre-order downloads at http://royalruckus.bandcamp.com.
Also, I just ordered 200 5-song demo CDs of the album I'll be passing out and using to land some shows. This 30-song album really is a monumental achievement and a real banger! I couldn't be more pleased with what we have accomplished.
Also, we posted a really cool interview with the artist behind our artwork. Check it out: https://summerofthecicadas.com/artwork/
That's it for now. Keep an eye on your email. Also, some of you haven't filled out your survey. We need surveys turned in so we can send you the incentives you chose!
