We are nearing completion of this massive project! To be honest, we didn't have a realistic grasp on how much work this would all end up being - but it's been a rewarding learning experience.
All the DVD Deluxe packs are in the mail. If you don't have yours yet, you'll be receiving it shortly. If you're out of the U.S. generally shipping will take 1 or 2 weeks, but depending on where exactly you are located and customs, it could be slightly more time. Rest assured those are all on the way!
Once those have arrived, that means 95% of our funders will have their perks in their hands. Feels awesome.
We really appreciate your patience in bearing with us. If your delivery address has changed, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Address Update" so we can get the vinyls sent to the right place. I hesitate to promise when exactly they are going to be delivered, but they are both back on track and moving forward.
Aside from those hangups, things are going really well. The reviews coming back for the album have been outstanding across the board. I've included a preview of the redesigned "Malice..." cover from the box set. These are going to look awesome.
Once again, thanks to all of you for making Absent Light possible.
We'll update again when those final perks are shipping, in the meantime keep up with all things Mis Sigs here:
Time for an update about the status of your perks:
Vinyl will be coming off the presses in mid September. They will be packaged and shipped early in October. The special edition just for you indiegogo funders is on transparent orange vinyl, which looks super sick (and you can’t get anywhere else).
If you’re waiting on the $75 Deluxe Package, we’ve just wrapped filming for the DVD - The editing and manufacturing are the last step, and shouldn’t take more than a month. So we’re hoping to ship those around the same time as the vinyl.
Test Pressings will ship within the next 2 weeks.
The remaining vinyl perks - Box Sets and B-Side 7 Inches: The bad news is both of these perks are a ways out and are going to require a little patience. We’ve had a couple unfortunate hurdles with these, and vinyl manufacturing is really backed up due to high volumes. We are trying our best to get them hurried along, but it is mostly out of our power. I’ll give another update as the date approaches, but I don’t expect copies to arrive to you before December. The good news is they are going to look awesome and be valuable as limited collectibles.
If you have your perks in hand already, awesome! If you have another issue that we didn’t address in this message, or that we didn’t already contact you about, or any customer service issues that need our attention, please let us know with an email here:
We are grateful to everyone for their continued support and patience as we work to complete this massive project!
What's up friends?
Hope you are all enjoying the digital download of Absent Light! We made sure that you funders who made this record possible were the first to hear it - a couple weeks before downloads become available to the public.
Most of your perks have gone off to manufacture. There are different timeframes for each perk. The CDs themselves are done and will be in the mail soon. The vinyl manufacturing is particularly slow, and we still have about 8 weeks before the vinyl albums will be completed.
A couple perks are still being created; For the DVD, we wanted to include some footage of the tour, so we are still filming now, which means editing and manufacturing are still to come. Stay tuned for an update on those, and an update on the B-Side 7” vinyl. Any of the packaged perks that include those items won’t be in the mail until the manufacturing is completed.
It’s just come to my attention that some of the names that were supposed to be thanked in the album were mistakenly left out. We are really really upset about this, and we hope those of you who were overlooked will accept our apology. This business of getting a record out on our own has been a juggling act, and it’s tricky keeping everything on track. We are truly sorry for the oversight, and we are going to sort through those names and make sure any that were left out will appear on the thanks list in the DVD.
