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

      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!

    8. Creator Robert Thomas on July 24, 2013

      How about an update guys? It's been almost 7 months since the last.

    9. Creator Jeremy Johnson on July 14, 2013
