      I backed a few other projects from Kickstarter- after the projects ended I was asked to fill out a survey to verify my mailing address (a banner appears when signed into kickstarter)... I don't recall seeing anything for this project when it ended... I want to make sure I receive the CD when it is ready... can't wait...

      Hey, does the $5 dollar pledge get the album download as well, two weeks later, or not at all?

      would you believe that I decided today would be the day to check Tourniquet website for any updates about new album/band news? I try to make a habit of checking it regularly but I let it slip because somehow I missed the kickstarter post until today, the final day. I have been a fan for over 16 years now and I don't think you understand exactly what it means for people like me to hear that you are creating new music. I wish I still had my tourniquet website up! lol You guys are awesome and have been since I first was in contact with you.
