We’re getting close, people, only a few more days to go before our new album The Secret Service is out, and we hit the road on tour!
Way back in July when we announced the album, we said it would be out on October 9th. Well, it took a bit longer to record than we thought, which means we weren’t able to get the music to the manufacturing plant for the CDs and vinyl editions in time for this date – so we wanted to let you know that if you’ve ordered the album on CD or vinyl from us or from another retailer, these won’t be shipping until after the (new) October 16th release date; the vinyl will likely be delayed a bit more until the end of October.
The GOOD news, though, is that if you’ve pre-ordered from us you still will get the download album on the original October 9th release date, AND we will start shipping your signed CDs, “Decoder” shirts, and goodie bags to you the following week as soon as they arrive – so really not long to wait.
Not only that, but we have a double-secret surprise for you on TOP of all of that – everyone who has pre-ordered the album in ANY FORMAT from us will automatically get a free download of our ENTIRE live show from London last May. You’ve heard several of the live tracks on the EPs already, but we decided to mix the rest of the show and give it to you for free as a thank-you for AGAIN helping us make this album.
“But wait, there’s more…!” Yup, not only is there a live album, but there’s ALSO an acoustic album TOO. (Phew a lot of news here!) If you pre-ordered the uber MI6 bundle from us, your ‘Code Purple’ surprise is a limited-edition double CD of the live album AND the acoustic album that we recorded in a church last February (you may have seen some of the videos for these on YouTube?). Sweet, huh? We’ll be bringing this limited-edition 2CD package on tour with us, so you can also pick it up at a live show…
Yes, don’t forget we’re heading out on tour starting this Saturday, too – the last few tickets are still available for most shows, and we’re frantically rehearsing all the new songs (which are sounding great so far).
Really looking forward to seeing you all again very very soon!
Lots of love,
Al, Irwin, Sam
