Happy December, friends and neighbours in Kow Country.
We promised to give you an update on the Christmas CD, so here it is. As mentioned previously, the album had been fully recorded and mixed and we were only waiting on the mechanical reproduction rights for the parodies to come through before we could release the disc to manufacturing. Unfortunately, it’s been weeks and we haven’t heard anything from the publishers and rights holders. Yet. We still anticipate the we will be granted permission to publish the parodies on the Christmas album–if you’ve been to a Kristmas Kabaret, you’ve heard them before–but we are currently in a holding pattern. As such, we won’t have the CD ready in time for this Christmas season. We were prepared for this eventuality, but that doesn’t make the disappointment any less real. We are as excited to get this CD into your hands as you are to receive it. We are still planning to release the CD next year when we get the necessary authorizations, and when we do, we will announce it to our fans and our Indiegogo campaign donors.
But we don’t wish to leave you all without a Christmas present. If we can’t get you guys the whole CD, we can at least give you a preview. All Indiegogo donors who would have received a CD (or two) will, for the time being, receive access to one of the songs that featured on the CD. We will send you a special URL in the next week or so. This information will be repeated in an upcoming email to CD-level donors.
That’s it for the bad news. Speaking of Christmas, Indiegogo donors who are entitled to Kow t-shirts, please let us know if you are coming to the Apocalypse Kow Kristmas Kabaret on Thursday, December 8 at The Nest Taphouse Grill at NAIT. We’ll be sure to have your merch waiting for you at the show.
Tickets for the Kabaret are available at the door, or online via Eventbrite. Thank you all for your support this year. We are thankful to all of you for your love and kindness this season. See you at the Kabaret
