    Does the Vinyl pre-order include full Digital download upon release?

    We shall see. I really hope it gets funded! If we don't reach the 300 unit requirement, we'll all receive refunds....so we can atleast try! :)

    They should have put 200 copies as a target. Real shame if it won't be pressed.

    Hate to be a downer on this but I think they should have used Kickstarter (or similar) and allowed people to help fund the vinyl without actually buying the vinyl, similar to what Prolix and Gridlok did with the Project Trendkill LP. I'm sure they could offer the digital as a reward for those who don't fund enough to get the vinyl and they'd probably get a few people who just want to help out (and not necessarily get anything from it).

    In my opinion the way Project Trendkill was sorted was a near-perfect way to work out of there was a market for the vinyl and to make sure it became a reality.

    Some good news about this:
    A Sides
    Sasha Rad once we raise enough money to finance the press it will go ahead. It's close. An announcement will be made very soon.
    Yesterday at 9:25am

    so they will do it with some more sales even if it doesn't reach the target, which is great

    Please wait for pressing
    Congratulation! Your reserved project has reached it's goal on Jul.07.2015.
    We will make a payment transfer based on the payment information you have entered. You will receive an mail from paypal or stripe once the payment has been made.
    Vinyl will enter manufacturing process.
    Please wait while the artist / label prepares the pressing materials.



    shame the pound is so weak so it ended up costing me NZ$70 including shipping (which is twice as much as I would like to pay for an EP), but obviously its good to be part of this and contribute where I can

    I've thrown in a bit of extra cash back when it started, really happy about it seeing the light of day. Would be a shame if such a good album didn't have any tunes off it pressed.
