The excellent March and April CDs will be shipping out to subscribers this Monday and Tuesday, so hopefully you can start blasting the Remus rock on your stereos soon.
Also, we've got some songs from those release for you to check out. Try them!
the Remus Lupins - the 7th Horcrux
Remus and the Lupins - Expecto Patronum
Thanks again to all subscribers. There's still more subscriptions available, so tell your friends!
I'm really happy to announce that the first EPs are now on their way to subscribers! I spent all day Tuesday packing up over 300 envelopes. The people at the post office love me!
The Remus Lupins and Remus and the Lupins EPs are all mastered and sitting in front of me. I'm shipping them off to the pressing plant this afternoon, so they should be shipping out to subscribers in mid-April.
Any subscriptions made from this point forward will be shipped along with that April mailing, so new subscribers will get the first 4 CDs all at once! Joy!
And now I can also reveal the complete schedule for the entire year of awesomeness:
Jan - the Hungarian Horntails
Feb - Voldemort
Mar - the Remus Lupins
Apr - Remus and the Lupins
May - Ginny and the Heartbreakers
Jun - the Parselmouths
Jul - Harry and the Potters
Aug - Roonil Wazlib
Sep - the Fleur Delacours
Oct - the Marauders
Nov - Draco and the Malfoys
Dec - Dumbledore
If you haven't already subscribed, let me simply reiterate that these EPs are so limited that it will rather difficult to get your hands on many of them if you are not a subscriber. If you are a Harry and the Potters fan, for instance, we're only going to have 200 extra copies of our CD and those will only be sold at select shows during our summer tour. So subscribe already! It's for charity!
Oh yeah, and a couple weeks ago, I was on Pottercast #77 talking all about the EP club and some other stuff like doughnuts and time travel. If you have a free hour to listen to lots of Potter talk, have a listen.
That's all the news for now. Thanks again to all you subscribers!
I'm sorry to report that there was just a tiny delay in the production of the first two EPs. But this tiny delay was enough that I have to put off mailing them for a couple weeks because I'm leaving on a tour with the Potters tomorrow and the EPs won't arrive at my parent's house till Monday.
The shipping date for the January and February EPs will be Monday, March 12th. So you'll hopefully have them in-hand by mid-March! Sorry for the delay!
For the record, the March/April releases should be shipping in early April, so get ready for that. Also for the record, these two CDs are awesome. Get pumped.
Thanks again for subscribing!
Awesome! I'm really pleased with all the great feedback I've gotten on this. Subscription sales are going strong and there are still plenty left.
To just answer a few questions I've received:
It does not matter when you subscribe to the club. All subscribers will get all 12 CDs. So if you were to subscribe in April, your first shipment will contain the first 4 CDs.
We will continue to sell subscriptions until all 750 have been sold. When there are only about 100 subscriptions left, I'll post a notice and you can get your act together and subscribe if you haven't already.
Thanks to everyone who has already subscribed!
The first two releases of 2007, the Hungarian Horntails and Voldemort EPs, will be shipping in late February.
The second set of releases, the Remus Lupins and Remus and the Lupins, will ship to subscribers in late March! Hooray!
