I ended up getting signed after all, at the very last minute! It’s a new label called White Knight Records, and they’re connected to some of my favorite prog rock bands, like Hoggwash, Frost* and Magenta, so they have lots of experience in this genre.
They will help me promote and distribute the physical CDs to stores in the main prog rock countries: UK, USA, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Argentina, France and Italy.
(I will personally take care of all the digital downloads though, so it’s a great deal for me.)
The “problem” with all this is that they need more time to get everything done, building hype, preparing promos etc etc, so the official release date will be changed until September. The unofficial release is still August 13 though, so I will sell my signed copies from that point. In other words, the most hardcore fans will get the CD a whole month before the rest of the world. :) No piracy please.
OMG!!!! GRATTIS!! :D :D
If there was a like button on this blog like there is on everything on Facebook I would’ve clicked it! *LIKE*
Grattis, Fredde! :D Önskar dig fortsatt lycka med musiken!! ^^ Blir ball om jag kan hitta din skiva här i Japan sen… :D
Woohoo grats =)
Woah! Grattis! Du förtjänar det.
Har förbeställt skivan. :)
Nice one! Congratulations =)
Congrats, man. Well deserved
(lol at “no piracy please”. Surely that will stop anyone who was planning on pirating it)
thats awesome congrats!!!!
Now you can change that “why aren’t you signed” question on your F.A.Q. ;)
BIEN!!! ARGENTINA!!! YEAH MAN!!!
Here is really hard to buy your disc because 40 euros are like 300 pesos, but if they sell your cd here i will buy 10
Juan: Actually it’s 26 euro, so that’s only 153 Argentine Pesos. ;) But yes, it will be normal price in stores.
By this time I imagine ‘grattis’ means CONGRATULATIONS! =D
That’s great, this will help you reach even more people with your music.
Aww!! Congratulations Fredde!! I’m glad I got my pre-order. I think my head would explode if I had to wait till September!!
Congratulations! That’s really great!
The one downside is that your album will no longer be out on my birthday (13th August) altho it’s still kinda cool if the name of the album remains thirteen eight.
Haha, cool. Now you’re really getting somewhere. Looking forward to see you on the billboards in Holland;)
Fan, maybe you should try and pre-order it online then? It is still planned to be released on 13/8 online, just 13/9 in stores!
It’s probably a little more expensive because of postage but I would pay for seven albums if I could get one of them on 13/8 as intended! Trust me, I’ve heard a little bit off the album and it is SERIOUSLY worth it.
haha, yes, but still a lot of money here in the 3rd world!
btw, your disc is gonna ROCK and here in Argentina we´ll be waiting for your gig!
His gig? Well he’ll need to clone a few of himself… :P
Congratulations on being signed! And thank you for mentioning Magenta. I haven’t heard them before, and one of my favorite things is finding a new progressive rock band that I like. (And I have to fill the void left by Dream Theater (DT – Mike Portnoy = sad fan) ).
Nice! Redan förbeställt albumet :)
Congratulations! :) That is so exciting.
