85 days after our first recording session, and after a crazymaking number of all-nighters -- including last night's 7 PM to 9 AM mastering marathon -- Infernal Machines is now finished.
Huge shout-out to our literally tireless mixing engineer Paul Cox, and also to Randy Merrill at Masterdisk, who in my humble opinion fucking nailed it.
"Street" date is May 12 -- meaning for all practical purposes, that's when you'll be able to place your order at www.newamsterdamrecords.com. But when you order the physical CD you will also get instant access to the MP3 downloads, so there is no problem satisfying your fetish for instant gratification and your fetish for beautiful objects. You will also be able to pick up an advance copy at our CD release show at Galapagos on May 8.
I say this a lot, but it's important: everyone should know that this album would not sound remotely as good as it does without the support of the people who contributed to our recording fund. You guys gave us the freedom to do things right, which is a luxury few independent artists can afford. I hope you will be as pleased with the results as I am.
