LIBERTY & JUSTICE NEWS ROUND-UP:
Hey Guys, hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and here is looking
forward to 2013! There are lots of things to speak about, so thanks for
taking the time to read this. This will be more of an update then a
press release. 2012 marked LNJ's 20th year anniversary, and we released a
ton of new music, "15 Years Later" (exclusive single for MRCD9 for www.melodicrock.com), "In Time" & "Grinch" (free songs you can download at www.reverbnation.com/libertynjustice),
and of course the release of 3 new studio albums "Hell Is Coming To
Breakfast", "Before The Revolution: The Best Of LNJ The Early Years"
(Preorders), and our last ever all-star project the 26 song mammoth "The Cigar Chronicles vol. 1 and 2" (with a release date of 2-26-13,
but anyone who preorders will get the disk early and digital files of
songs the same day). You can get all our LNJ CD's (all 13 of ‘em) plus a
lot of other LNJ swag and merch at www.libertynjustice.net.
"The Cigar Chronicles" CD's are preparing
to be shipped to all preorders. They have been ready for more than a
week, but I messed up on some of the electronic rights on "The Covers"
side and the manufacturer was holding the CDs until I got all the proper
paperwork (thanks Mark Lanoue). When JK and I started working on this
CD we envisioned a bigger label taking the CD so we could reach a bigger
audience. We quickly found out a lot of labels wanted the project (7
offers) but the offers were minimal at best, and we had a better chance
of recouping by releasing ourselves and licensing a certain amount of
CDs to other labels (Roxx, Nightmare etc). We have decided that "The Cigar Chronicles" featuring all 26 songs will be a very limited, 1,000 CD run, and "The Cigar" will be re-released as just the 13 original songs plus 3 new tracks later in 2013.
We are truly blessed to have "you" as a listener of our music. We did
not do a kick starter or another fundraiser to finish the project - we
just made a record. Through your preorders and supporting this project
we were able to keep marketing the project and reach a larger listener
base. We have plans on making a music video, starting a radio campaign
for a single, and doing ads on different websites. If you were going to
get a copy of "The Cigar" we ask that you preorder it for 2 reasons:
firstly, we have already presold more than half of the 1,000 and if you
want this very limited release we hope you pick up a copy before they
are gone, and secondly, to help us raise the revenue needed to do what
we need to do to market the CD. Some have asked and the answer is yes,
iTunes will carry all 26 songs (2-26-13) for a limited time but we are
offering the same digital files for less ($15.99) now.
