Due to the high traffic yesterday, Matt's attempted announcement never happened on the coma because...well we killed the fucking coma.
For those curious Matt made the announcements on the closed Facebook group #TheMarsVolta and on The Coma's Tiny Chat page.
I figure this is a good time to clear up some of the confusion so we are all on the same page. Obviously admins should edit this as they see fit.
So here are the key points
- If you bought the first 3 Antemasque tracks you will get the full album for free when in comes out.
- If you bought them you also will get some sweet bonuses including 10th anniversary versions of Tremulent, Deloused and Cry is for the Flies
- The 10th anniversary releases will have new mixes. No other word on how (if) they differ from the originals. Besides the mix
- The first 250 people who bought the 3 tracks will get a signed released of ANTEMASQUE when the album comes out
- Le Butcherettes' second LP is coming this week (Tuesday was reported) it is titled Cry is for the Flies
- Here is a single form the song http://www.latimes.c...y#axzz2yrUVsRwC
- This is all coming via a new label by Omar called Nadie
- Early details are scarce, but effectively it sounds like a new means of distributing his music.
- More details are to come in press release which should be out pretty soon.
- The apparent idea is that some individuals have been going through Omar's hard drives and preparing albums for release (Matt referred to it as the "Obelisk").
- He did say The Somnabulists is in there, but when its coming he did not know. (There's a track on Telesterion that's supposedly from an album called The Somnambulists, it has Jon Theodore and Juan on it and it's pretty indicative of a Frances-era sound. Folks have been itching for it's release for years now. )
- King Crimson fans may note this sounds pretty similar to Robert Fripp's DGM model. This is a GOOD thing
- Only a very small number of people are involved in this.
- Not part of the reveal, but a pretty cryptic tweet was sent out last night too https://twitter.com/...563044790497280
- Here is a picture of the Facebook thread http://i.imgur.com/ATfKX6w.png Have fun sifting through that shit
- Apparently its going up on Midnight tonight (no timezone noted). Be on the look out
- Matt shared a few tracks from the final TMV show on tiny chat (Goliath, Widow, In Absentia). Links are floating around
More updates as they come. Keep checking the first post!
