To all of our international friends and supporters.
Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop as to where their package is and when you can expect to receive it. Since we are complete noobs to the crowdfunding system, we had a slight oversight on the shipping costs. As you know we charged $5 for international shipping and figured we didn't want the price of the perk to double if we decided to go the fed ex route. So our bad. We hoped that having the digital would suffice while you wait for your physical copy of Volition. So I hope it's worth the wait, and remember when you get it you'll be one of the proud owners of an exclusive product that will never be made again. If for some reason you have moved and didn't resubmit your proper address in time,please contact us to have that corrected. We printed enough extras so in the instance stuff got lost in the mail or went to the wrong place we can resend, but according to Canada Post they have an insane delivery percentage (something like 1 in 10000 goes missing) so reassured your package is trucking along somewhere in the world.
Please let us know when you do receive, snap a picture and tag it #protesttheheroIGG so we can celebrate with you. Consider it an early whatever holiday you celebrate present that you had to pay for a long time ago. Thanks for your patience and joining us in the journey into unknown territory. Unfortunately you were all the gerbils in the little experiment but I hope you can see how you've helped us and inspired others to go it alone.
Look forward to seeing you out on the road and once again, without you, this record would not have turned out anywhere near the way it did. So we are forever in your debt.
As many of you already know. All 8000 orders have LEFT THE BUILDING.
Read below for some info that might ease your nerves have you not your package yet:
Vinyl - we signed all of these the day before release (they came in a little late). They turned out amazing though and should be in your hands soon. We have already seen many people who have received them online, so please sit tight. They turned out more incredible than we could have hoped. We know you will dig them.
Digital Download - so, when we found out our record had leaked - we decided to REALLY leak it ourselves. We didn't want all you guys who contributed waiting around for your official downloads while a bunch of other scamps were stealing it for free. In our insane hustle to get these out the same day the record leaked, we didn't account for the minus time interlude in MIST. Not to worry though, a mass email was sent out with a link to a new version of the song which you could simply replace in your digi album file. If you didn't get this email, check your junkmail folders.
8GB USB Stick - these took a little longer to come in than we thought. But they are in and being loaded as we speak. They will be shipping next week and should be to you asap. We hope for now that you are enjoying your digital downloads. The USB card will have the highest quality song files possible, so you will technically be better than everyone else on the planet. Thanks for your patience.
League of Ordinary Gentlemen - we have received many messages about this one. Here's the deal. We are still waiting on a bunch of your photos so that we can make every custom laminate. At some point we are going to have to stop waiting and just make the ones we have. In the meantime. If you are a league member and planning on coming out to one of these shows coming up, don't worry. Just bring some ID and we will reference ya with our master list. We have a nice little treat just for you and hopefully you will have your official laminate soon!
Please send any inquiries to email@example.com
Thanks again, we hope all your perks arrive safely and you love them once they do!
Feels like an incredible weight off the shoulders. Almost all the orders have shipped! We signed a million vinyls yesterday and the gatefold double disc came out amazing. Yes, it's transparent orange and suits the release date right? Hope you can bang your heads to the digital version until all of your perks show up! Thanks again everyone.
Attention all you listening party goers! This is to let you know that we have set our official listening party date. It will take place on Friday, October 11th in Toronto at a location TBD.
We will be in direct contact via email with all of you to make sure you RSVP correctly. Got a pretty sweet little night lined up, and some cool stuff to give away as well.
Stay tuned, and set aside the date!
Okay everyone. As mentioned last week - this is the final call for all sizing for tees and sweatshirts. If we don't have your size in by this friday (sept.13), we will be sending you out a LARGE. (we changed that from medium, cause it's easier to shrink than to stretch eh?).
So, everything will be ordered for final packing and sending this friday and then there will be no further changes...which also means you won't see this annoying message anymore.
Go HERE to input sizes for tee shirt and sweatshirt perks, and pay for extra shipping if you haven't done that either. As always, email our boy John if you have any problems at our SUPPORT line and just make sure it's by friday latest.
For those of you wondering about the Album Listening Party - details for that are just being confirmed and we will be in contact very soon to make sure you can make it out. Think 2nd week of October.
It has been a wonderful ride getting all this stuff together, but it's time to bog down and get these 8000 orders out the door. Hell month for us starts in October - but we're happy to oblige.
