      Arrived! Fantastic all around :)

      Ok, now it's been over five months since the "Test Pressing Approved" update. Where's the record? All in all, this whole project will have its fourth birthday pretty soon (including its original delivery deadline). Also noted that doesn't work anymore.

      If there is no band, and you are not going to release a record, I'm sorry about all that (still being a huge fan of your music), but I'd like to have a refund, please. I did give you $400, after all. If you can't fulfill your promise, I want my money back.

      Or at least tell us, what's the situation. Please.

      Any news on this album... or am I pretty much writing this one off?

      Wozzup? No news for ages. What happened to the vinyls? Were are my rewards?

      what's the expected date of completion now?

      Hey everyone-- still at it, still committed to making a classic album. It has taken a long time, so we are now certain it will be better to make sure the end result is timeless rather than to rush. We promise it will be worth the wait, and thank you for your patience and support!

      Hi everybody. Please accept our apologies for the lack of communication. We finally finished the mix and are ready to master the album. You can see our latest update for more info. Thanks to all of you and special thanks to Angel for taking the trouble to communicate with everyone when we were checked out!

      I just touched base with Kaleta via their FB band page to ask for an update, and the word is that they are finished mixing the album but still in post-production. Hopefully they'll touch base here more often as it wraps up!

      Jessica, that's a great idea... stay posted, we'll get it going for sure!

      Hey, any chance of a "full digital discography" reward? I would love digital copies of your previous albums.

    18. Jarmo Lundgren on June 13, 2012

      Hey fellow backers, spread the word! We're not even halfway yet. I really hope Akoya can record the album. We need more backers!
