@RemiA ... yeah, it seems so :( I tried to contact Mr. Carlson through different channels ... NO response!
@Sven : they can't do anything, are not liable for anything etc...
I'm wondering that Kickstarter is doing nothing about this situation...
I never thought it would come down to this, but is there any way to get my money back?
@Jarkko ... he didn't even read it until now �
@Sven....Did he answer?
I sent him a message through his FB-account.
This whole project became a joke ... I still can't believe it.
Have the ghastly impression that I will never get to the finished product. Love Dylan and his work but this is just not cool.
So we're now three years down the line and this album shows no sign of appearing.
What's more, according to Discogs there have been no less than 9 releases by Dylan/Earth since this project was funded:
La Strega And The Cunning Man In The Smoke (2012)
Edward Kelley's Blues (2012)
Modern English Folklore Volume One: Hackney (2012)
Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II (2012)
Holly's Jeans (2013)
Elephanto Bianco (2014)
Primitive And Deadly (2014)
Boa / Cold (2014)
Sorry ... I have to do it:
...THREE (!3!) YEARS...���
Wow...just three weeks to go...then we have completed 3(!!!) YEARS (!!!) since funding! THIS IS DISGUSTING! Is this a Guns n Roses - project???
Earth eurotour starting soon... Any news about this project? Thanks.
U P D A T E or FINAL PRODUCT ... please!
I also tried to get the Gold download key - no joy. Heading for 3 years since funding and no updates. Not good Dylan is clearly busy with Earth but it would be nice to think we might get something for our investment one day.
@Jarkko ... UPDATE ? ... What does this word mean? Arrgh ...
Am I a bad 'fan' if I dare to ask for an UPDATE!??
Estimate delivery May 2013
In addition to the dead email provided here on kickstarter, I directly emailed EARTH's management about the GOLD download. No response. I also inquired about the promised EARTH/Dylan Carlson tickets for a local show. Again, no response. This is a heavy bummer.
Here is his answer:
"[...] will be putting finishing touches on it as soon as the tour is over"
I wrote Mr. Carlson through his instagram-account. Hopefully I will get a response! This is my third kickstarter-project ... and my last!
michael murray - yes, i saw that after searching on here... so i emailed him and guess what?... yeah, ive got no reply.... there's someone else further down this comment list that says the same and that was weeks ago... man, yknow... this project goal was reached in feb 2012. its now september 2014.... when i pledged swans with their 'my father will' album to be made, i got updates regularly, and the thing was completed within the timespan. Mr Carlson just lost himself a fan.
Awesome...actually there is one EARTH-new per day on Facebook ... but NO update in here since may ... not bad ...
I used to be a massive fan of Earth...
Pete Brooks, The download was mentioned in the last update #55, it says
"If you wish a digital copy please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be emailed a code to download the album on release day."
As far as shipping address goes, the very first email sent out when originally backing this states
"When your reward is ready, Dylan Carlson will send you a survey via email to request any info needed to deliver your reward (mailing address, t-shirt size, etc)."
I don't imagine it would be very likely that Dylan would just hope for the best and send them straight out to the addresses he got back then without checking with people first.
Pete Brooks ... I'm with you... these lack of updates is ... pfffff ... to wait for already paid product this long is hilarious!
Huh? What download? I got no message from Kickstarter about anything?
Andy Parsons - a few comments below here - Ive tried to change address on this thing since the first deadline was missed, and was told you cant do it until they email you when its going to be shipped.... it's appaling... I'm boycotting Earth products and Kickstarter campaigns until this is sorted. What a load of crap.
If anyone can tell me how we get the download, please do. Thanks. I admire everyone's patience on here. For me, if I buy something I would like it in a lot less time than 2 1/2 years and counting....
Alright...new EARTH-Album is released ... so what about an update for THIS project???
Weird, email for the GOLD soundtrack is dead. No code for me, just a missive from mailer daemon.
Yes...i got my download - without any problems!
Did anyone get the GOLD download? I didn't receive one, and just emailed to inquire but the email address from the last update, email@example.com, seems to be obsolete now.
Do I use the contact me button to inform about address changes?
Dylan - Gold is a wonderful piece of art. I'm grateful that you worked out the discount on it for us.
I'm really happy about this open update...really! I can just speak for me but i was very pissed off about the LACK OF UPDATES. So now everything seems to be alright and we are waiting for a fantastic thing. nuff said. cheers
Dylan, applauding your open and honest update on the project. As a fellow musician I understand how complex and difficult it can be to get something like this completed and released and it must be very upsetting when 'fans' become negative through understandable but misplaced frustration. We all have incidents and obstacles in out lives which hinder what we aim to do. I am looking forward to this release as much as when I first pledged and hope you continue to work at your own pace and be entirely satisfied with the final product before it's released.
NEWS/UPDATE from TWITTER:
release/shipping before may 2015!
AVAILABLE TO BE SHIPPED IN MARCH 2014...aha, ok, TODAY is 1st of MAY (!!!) 2014
it would be a very nice gesture if dc would give a personal update in HERE and not at twitter or instagram and without "my help" to release it in here ....
Kind of stings to have backed this and be a big Earth/Carlson fan.
Jarkko Tella...well...idk...it seems that his talent is not organizing things in a certain time frame ...
Whaat?!?! Still recording? Is this going to be next "Chinese democracy"?
KIND OF AN UPDATE from TWITTER @drcarlsonalbion: i am doing some recording on it inbetween mixing the new earth album, and working on the text, rounding up artwork, etc. drc
@drcarlsonalbion: it is in progress, i have not forgotten it, i thank everyone for there patience drc
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!
so now what? it starting to seem that there will be no updates.
i pledged two (!! 2 !!) years ago ... it's been a loooong time
That "contact me" option is useless like ass with no hole, nothing comes out of it...
they can't get in touch with the project starters??? wow ... awesome organisation ...
i spoke to kickstarter last year - they said they cant get in touch with the project starters..... thats why im never backing anything on here again. was a huge fan of earth, seen them live and have all their records, but now... i just get distaste when i hear them - yknow, if it was my project and I'd collected $35k off my fans, i'd give them constant updates to let them know how things were going, especially if it was 12 months overdue or more....
