Hello DiS. In case you miss this in the news, here is the low down on our new album. I have read the discussions on fan funding with great interest on this forum. We weren't entirely sure how it would be recieved by our fans, but so far the response has exceeded our wildest expectations. It is beginning to restore my faith in the record buying public.
From our mailout:
It is with great excitement and anticipation that we can reveal to you details of the release of our second album. Way back in December we reported back on a successful recording session and since then we have put the finishing touches to an album we are proud to let out into the big wide world. We didn’t anticipate for it to take such a long time, and we fully appreciate your patience!
The record is called ‘He Who Saw the Deep’. It looks like this:
1. When We Were Kings
2. A Father’s Son
3. We Saw the Deep
4. Hope is not Enough
5. Progress is a Snake
6. These Feet of Clay
8. Sea of Regrets
9. These Broken Bones
10. A Divorce Before Marriage
Now this is the important part. We can’t do this without you.
With the new album comes a new approach to releasing it. The record will be released on our own record label called ILR. In order to make this a reality we have set up a project on a website called Pledge. This is an exclusive opportunity not only to get your hands on our album before it hits the shops, but also a plethora of other iLT goodies. These range from album artwork posters, lyric books, guitar lessons and vinyl only box sets. For a complete list of what we’re offering you, take a look around our Pledge page. http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/iliketrains
We have set a target for the money we require to set up the label, master, manufacture and market the record. No money exchanges hands until the target is met. Simple.
In other less exciting news, Simon has broken his leg. We will be drafting in a last minute replacement drummer for our Rock Herk festival show on the 17th of July. Details here http://www.rockherk.be.
Get well soon Mr Fogal.
