      Where are the "more frequent updates"???

    2. Creator Jochen Summer on June 28

      you will get an email to confirm your address...

    3. Creator Oren Siegel on June 24

      Hi Dylan,

      I read you wrote we should post on kickstarter for address change confirmation, as it's been 3 years... Where should we send the current address information?



    4. Creator Alan Stephen on June 15

      OK, so I spent some time with Dylan on Saturday night and we talked a bit about the Kickstarter. He's really conscious about how it's gone and the delays; the simple answer is that he hadn't really considered just how time consuming it would all be outside of the music. Very apologetic and, as per the last updates, he is just going to ship everything out as soon as it turns up (which should start soon). There should also be more frequent updates too.

      Unfortunately I forgot to ask about address confirmation.

    5. Creator Sven Nienaber on June 10

      And I think we all deserve a little extra goodie ... for our patience ...

    6. Creator Sven Nienaber on June 10

      I'll get excited when I get the stuff ... this whole thing (incl. Kickstarter & their way of support) is a mess ... I'm happy when it's done.

    7. Creator Jamie Bridges on June 9

      Ye of little faith...

    8. Creator Peter on June 5

      I don't want to act like the others - I understand them though.
      An update would be appropriate.

    9. Creator Sven Nienaber on June 2

      @RemiA ... a shitstorm???

    10. Creator RemA on June 2

      Or Twitter/FB?

    11. Creator Sven Nienaber on June 1

      All the people who supported this "project" should contact Kickstarter ...

    12. Creator Jarkko on May 31

      there must be something we can do? is my hard earned money flushed down the toilet with this bulls**t project!!!?!?

    13. Creator Sven Nienaber on May 29

      this is also my last kickstarter project! There is absolut NO support from their side! And Mr. tried to contact him through FB but it seems that the message function is OFF now. I left a message at his main site

    14. Creator RemA on May 28

      This is just getting ridiculous. I've lost a lot of respect for Dylan Carlson with this thing as I cannot think of a worse thing to do than take the people that care for your music for a ride. I certainly will not support him in the future. As for Kickstarter.. Never again.

    15. Creator Sven Nienaber on May 23

      ? ? ? N E W S ? ? ?

    16. Creator Sven Nienaber on May 12

      I can just laugh (like a weirdo...)...

    17. Creator Jarkko on May 11

      Yes, some news would ne nice. But I doubt there will be any.....

    18. Creator RemA on May 11

      Any news?

    19. Creator Sven Nienaber on April 15

      Heeeey ... an aswer by Dylan through FB:

      currently awaiting test copies from the vinyl pressing plant. I'll be sending out a more detailed update via kickstarter once we have those.
      thanks for your continued patience.

    20. Creator Sven Nienaber on April 8

      Their answer:

      Hi Sven,

      Travis here with Kickstarter support--thanks for reaching out and taking the time to bring this to our attention.

      We do our best to give project creators the freedom and support necessary to bring their new and exciting ideas to life. This often means that when projects launch on Kickstarter they’re in the early stages of development. While we encourage creators to communicate regularly through this process, it’s important to remember that each of them will approach this differently. In most cases, this may be the first time that a creator has the responsibility of communicating with a large support community. Still, we expect that creators will make every effort to complete their project as promised and keep backers updated along the way. We also hope that backers will remain understanding as everyone learns through this process.

      I’ve reached out to this creator and offered our assistance. My goal is to open the lines of communication and encourage them to update more effectively moving forward. You should continue reaching out to them on your end as well. Through this joint effort, we’ll be reminding the creator to check in.

      Thanks for being a thoughtful backer and member of the Kickstarter community. I hope you hear more from the project creator soon.


    21. Creator Sven Nienaber on April 8

      I contacted KICKSTARTER again.

    22. Creator Guillaume Faurel on April 8

      What's happen ????? more than three years without informations, any release .....

      KICKSTARTER = first time and never again

    23. Creator Sven Nienaber on April 2

      @RemiA ... yeah, it seems so :( I tried to contact Mr. Carlson through different channels ... NO response!

    24. Creator RemA on April 1

      @Sven : they can't do anything, are not liable for anything etc...

    25. Creator Sven Nienaber on March 28

      I'm wondering that Kickstarter is doing nothing about this situation...

    26. Creator Jarkko on March 24

      I never thought it would come down to this, but is there any way to get my money back?

    27. Creator Sven Nienaber on March 14

      @Jarkko ... he didn't even read it until now �

    28. Creator Sven Nienaber on March 14

      @Jarkko No

    29. Creator Jarkko on March 14

      @Sven....Did he answer?

    30. Creator Sven Nienaber on March 13

      I sent him a message through his FB-account.

    31. Creator Sven Nienaber on February 27, 2015

      This whole project became a joke ... I still can't believe it.

    32. Creator RemA on February 26, 2015

      Have the ghastly impression that I will never get to the finished product. Love Dylan and his work but this is just not cool.

    33. Creator Al English on February 16, 2015

      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)
      Gold (2014)
      Elephanto Bianco (2014)
      Primitive And Deadly (2014)
      Boa / Cold (2014)

    34. Creator Sven Nienaber on February 12, 2015

      Sorry ... I have to do it:

      ...THREE (!3!) YEARS...���

    35. Creator Sven Nienaber on January 21, 2015

      Wow...just three weeks to go...then we have completed 3(!!!) YEARS (!!!) since funding! THIS IS DISGUSTING! Is this a Guns n Roses - project???

    36. Creator Jarkko on January 15, 2015

      Earth eurotour starting soon... Any news about this project? Thanks.

    37. Creator Sven Nienaber on October 23, 2014

      U P D A T E or FINAL PRODUCT ... please!

    38. Creator Iain Forsyth on October 14, 2014

      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.

    39. Creator Sven Nienaber on October 13, 2014

      @Jarkko ... UPDATE ? ... What does this word mean? Arrgh ...

    40. Creator Jarkko on October 12, 2014

      Am I a bad 'fan' if I dare to ask for an UPDATE!??

    41. Creator Sven Nienaber on October 1, 2014

      Estimate delivery May 2013

    42. Creator Chad Hamilton on September 24, 2014

      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.

    43. Creator Sven Nienaber on September 21, 2014

      Here is his answer:

      "[...] will be putting finishing touches on it as soon as the tour is over"

    44. Creator Sven Nienaber on September 21, 2014

      I wrote Mr. Carlson through his instagram-account. Hopefully I will get a response! This is my third kickstarter-project ... and my last!

    45. Creator Pete Brookes on September 19, 2014

      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.

    46. Creator Sven Nienaber on September 14, 2014

      Awesome...actually there is one EARTH-new per day on Facebook ... but NO update in here since may ... not bad ...

    47. Creator Emile on September 12, 2014

      I used to be a massive fan of Earth...

    48. Creator michael murray on September 11, 2014

      Pete Brooks, The download was mentioned in the last update #55, it says
      "If you wish a digital copy please email 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.

    49. Creator Sven Nienaber on September 8, 2014

      Pete Brooks ... I'm with you... these lack of updates is ... pfffff ... to wait for already paid product this long is hilarious!
