PostSubject: New The Letter Black CD.....dropping in 11 days!   Mon May 15, 2017 6:16 am

It has been a long time coming since we last got an installment from The Letter Black.  I did the Kickstarter campaign for this one, so I am really looking forward to getting the music.  We should start getting it any day as we are less than two weeks from the official release date of May 26.  I think it is going to be a great album!

I really want to hear it.  I didn't do the kickstarter because I was very disappointed in the last album and pretty much never listen to it.

Thats the thing with this one.  On their last album, they pretty much did what the label wanted them to do.  Since they were without a label, this time they have said they were going in a more metal direction and were doing this to please themselves.  I hope they stick to that.

I'm hoping the same.

I should get a CD from their Kickstarter campaign, though I'm not too happy with how all that is playing out. I've seen on FB that some people have the CD already, even though there are still five or six days until release, and others have received notification that theirs is shipped. Meanwhile, I have yet to receive anything, product or word of shipment. When I indicated as such on one of the band's FB posts the reply I got was that the CDs people already have are from the distribution label. OK, I know none of the perks for the Kickstarter were to get the CD first or early, but it still seems wrong to me that people who didn't contributor to the Kickstarter campaign get the CD first, and before the release date even. If it weren't for the Kickstarter supporters it's possible no-one would get a CD. And now I see I can get the CD from Amazon for under $10, Prime shipping; I paid $20 to the Kickstarter, and all I get is two extra songs on the CD. This KS experience has me thinking hard before doing any others.  Mad

A lot of people have had similar complaints about kick starter campaigns.  I really think some are hit and miss, and lot of artists shoot themselves in the foot by not treating their contributing fans better.

I am in the same boat!  Had I known it would be cheaper, I would not have contributed.  Of course, at that time, they were not even associated with a label and I wanted them to get a new record out.  Now, they are signed again.  I guess the label doesn't mind signing someone when there is no risk involved.

Disciple runs a good Kickstarter.  So did Bloodgood and John Schlitt.  If you do one, you need to use them as examples.  Find a way to get the album done on time if not early.  Get the perks out immediately.  I still don't have my shirt from the Rose campaign.  Guardian took two YEARS to get their album out.  Sean Micheal, a blues guy, got his money last year and nothing has happened.  These are unprofessional and downright pitiful if you ask me.

I remember when they first started the campaign several of us commented their prices were too high. I didn't contribute until they came down to what I felt was a bit more reasonable. In retrospect I was an idiot. Rolling Eyes I'm not even a fan, really; to me their stuff is good, but nothing worth driving several hundred miles to see. They are the Friday night headliner on the rock stage at the Hills Alive festival this year. Disciple is the Saturday headliner, so I may make a day trip out there if the weather is right; I'm always up for an OTR motorcycle trip.

To be fair, the label they signed with is for distribution purposes only, not production, or so I'm told. Of course your point is still valid, as they are "safe" to sign once the record is made. Though it is hard to fault the band for signing a lucrative deal with someome to reproduce and sell their music.

Kind of sounds like the Daniel Amos campaign ... I'm beginning to wonder if anything is ever going to happen over there.

Another one that some people are apparently sour about is Demon Hunter. I contributed and got the CD, as promised, but I have since bought the vinyl and am hearing that what I received is not what the KS contributors received. Mine is actually a double LP recorded at 45rpm, presumably for a higher quality sound, and was produced by Solid State records after the campaign ended. Meanwhile, it appears the vinyl received by KS contributors was a single LP in 33rpm. Personally, I'd probably prefer the LP, but from what I'm seeing on FB some folks are less than pleased with getting what appears to be a lower quality item from the campaign, and probably for more $$.
