In preparation for the release of the new Slavemason album, “Event Horizons”, all digital distribution of the first self-titled Slavemason release is being halted. We are pulling our music from iTunes, search Spotify etc…
The only way to get Slavemason music in the future will be directly at slavemason.com, a distributor we work with directly, or from used music stores.
We are doing this because digital streaming does not currently provide sustainable compensation and support for artists. in the end, the music and fans will be paying the ultimate price. In the future, if we see our music being streamed or sold illegally, it will be easy to identify.
In the coming months, slavmason.com will be updated to handle sales of our music better and provide a better experience overall.
Slavemason welcomes D Kitts as the drummer for Slavemason! Actually, he has been learning and working on the album with Slavemason for a many months now, but I thought I would make it official. We look forward to playing live again!
I played in a band “Esoteric” with D in high school, so it’s a pleasure to reunite and create some music.
The music is all written and there are demo versions of the songs already recorded. The new album will be called “Event Horizons” and it is a big artistic leap for Slavemason. I will keep you posted here and on a video blog showing progress in the studio.
Some people have asked what is taking so long, and the answer to that is that I had to get better at the drums, which took a few months. I had to overcome a few hurdles in my playing to perform some of the parts I wrote for the album.
There were also a few technical hurdles because I wanted to do this album using some technology that had not come out yet. I had to wait for the release of the technology and work out some of the kinks with it in the studio.
