been making and sending out the last of the Power of the Pen rewards too, so if you're still waiting on yours, just know I haven't forgotten about you.

Update #52

Long overdue status report.

Hi everyone. It's been too long since I've let y'all know what's going on. I apologize for the silence, and I'll try to be brief.

We've been on the road since October 18th... (The tour has been amazing and it's been a pleasure meeting so many of you) I did mail out an awful lot of the rewards, mainly the vinyl, in the week leading up to our departure. I hope all the records sent out made it to you. If not, we're going to be sending out some messages to all our backers when we get home and we'll get to the bottom of problems as best we can.

I've taken care of most of the hand written lyric prizes, but there are a few that still need to be put together.

It's job number one when we get home, I promise.

Like I've said a million times in these messages, we've been totally in over our heads with fulfillment of your rewards. We had no idea it was going to be this challenging when we set it all up.

We've learned a lot about how to do this better next time.

Please accept our apologies! We'll be home on thanksgiving and after we digest our turkey we'll get cracking on getting everyone their stuff!

Update #51

Vinyl

We received the vinyl today and nearly all of the records were defective. This is a manufacturing error beyond our control. The vinyl is further delayed. We will ship as many non-defective copies as we can find in the bunch. 

-Limos.


Update #50

Cockroach to survive the end times

6 comments

Hello everyone. Been a little while since my last (in hindsight quite embarrassing update) --- this one is actually about good news and exciting possibilities not only for us but some good friends of ours.

Firstly. Production and packing and shipping has been completed for 90% of the CDs. Many internationals are getting caught up in the customs offices of their destination countries, a lot of others have just now gone out. Like I said before, I am fully aware of how insanely shitty it is to have been a backer and gotten your cd this late in the game. Can't apologize enough for that failing. Won't happen again.

We also complete "radio servicing" so - within a few days nearly every radio station in the US will have a CD copy of Love Is A Dog From Hell (radio edit and album version) this is something we outlined as a goal of ours during the campaign, you made it happen - so thanks once again!

This also means next week it's time to start calling, emailing, tweeting and texting your local rock or alternative radio station and asking them to play the song. Those calls really do get noticed, probably more than any other form of feedback from their listeners. Your phone call can literally mean the difference between us getting added to the playlist and not. So get on that phone!!

We also have a surprise show announcement - we'll once again be supporting the mighty WEEZER in San Francisco on July 25th. Check online for tickets...

Finally - a word about a kickstarter project we love! Our good friends have begun to raise money for a fantastic art project for this year's Burning Man - please take a look and consider donating whatever you can to their dream!
