26 Hours Left!

26 hours left... we never dreamed that this many people would back our project. We're just speechless when it comes to how this thing has played out. Shame on us for ever doubting you.

Looks like we're packing up around 1500 mailers, as a band. Sure, we could pay a fulfillment company (and had a few offers from some). It would save us time and stress, but this DIY thing is about DOING IT YOURSELF right?... so that's what we're doing. We're going to produce all the goodies, get them shipped to one of our tiny apartments, and sit around for a week fulfilling your orders. From our hands to yours, because you deserve it and we love you.

We're in the beginning stages of art design, and the album will be mixed next week. We already have the T-Shirt design MOSTLY sorted out, and most of the other little tidbits like stickers will depend on the album art when it's finished.

I've got to compile the lyrics and thanks and all the copy for the album, including almost 600 names of our Elite Package backers and a bunch more Music Lovers Package backers for the vinyl packaging. 

To remind you: 

We will survey you at the end and ask for your shipping address and whose name you want in the album liner notes and what other item you're adding to your package (if you paid extra for one) and your T-Shirt size and all that. When we do that, please respond as quickly as possible so that we can get the ball rolling. Most physical rewards should expect fulfillment no later than the end of August, but more likely sooner. We aren't a big company with an infrastructure and customer service department... just a band of simple minstrels trying to navigate the postal system, so please bare with us.

We love you and thank you again for helping The Classic Crime make more music. We can't wait for you to hear these songs.
