these past few weeks have seen a whirlwind of activity to get the Alpha + Omega album ready for release. I described the process as a long and winding road in my last update and suffice to say: that still rings true!
The mixes, the artwork, the logistics of getting the album printed and in the meantime making preparations to perform this live in the Netherlands again, this coming September... it has all merged into the very final stretch of this wonderful jo...urney. I decided to update you with a video while giving you a little glance at what will be the album booklet AND... hear some of the final mixes from the album! This video also contains some important information about the release date. While we anticipated to have all mixes final at this stage (and actually be ready to ship!), some are still being completed. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the time and effort that Dave Bainbridge puts into these while juggling a busy schedule of his own, which factors into the longer than anticipated process. And I am so glad to let you know that the songs sound absolutely wonderful; it is the quality we so hoped for in our desire to musically update this work. But as the process of making a CD requires one part to be finished before the next step can be completed, we do need to push the release date back. Mixing will be finished late July with mastering to follow immediately. The anticipated release will now be early August.
I hope you will appreciate these glimpses of what is to ultimately arrive at your doorstep. Enjoy the video; we will give some more behind the scenes updates before release!
