To be fair, my first impulse upon seeing the fact that it was "thought to be official" was that it would look less official if you photoshopped a giant "UNOFFICIAL" rubber stamp onto the header images, background images, and cover arts. (Snort.)
This is still going to come out on 4/13, right? Even though the next official album comes out the same day?
How's it being released, given the wonky status of the Gaiden Bandcamp?
Well, traditionally this sort of thing could have used Megaupload! HO HO HO HO HO ohh i made myself sad
definitely panic if there’s caviar
We have hosting options. When they're all finalised and ready, we'll release them.
4/20 is a good date. I can't wait! It better not be late! .... yes i did do the rhyming thing on purpose
Oh man. I can't wait to hear these in 2 weeks!
Just curious though... Once we are able to download these, are we allowed to use them in stuff like YouTube videos if we give proper credit (for something like an [S] update for a fan-venture)? Would we need to find and ask permission from the track's composer?
Best to ask for permission.
But you might get a surprise...
Oh you should ALWAYS ask permission! Even with official Homestuck songs it is best to in the case of a fan adventure or something similar.
is this a good surprise
So guys! Some facts!
-The album will indeed be released on 4/20
-The homepage will be hosted on Skaia.net, with embedded streaming players from Bandcamp
-The Bandcamp page will not have the option to download; free downloads from Bandcamp are quite limited
-The album will be available in mp3, FLAC, and Ogg (and potentially more if other formats are requested)
-The album will be downloadable by way of torrents, and possibly a filesharing site
You are all extremely patient souls and I appreciate your continued interest!
Wow that's actually a great option for downloading! I hadn't even thought of doing anything like that. Will it be Homestuck Gaiden or a new thing? Also will it be awesome? (the answer is yes)
The answer to the second question is indeed yes.
It will be hosted on a brand new Bandcamp page; we're still working out what the url will be. We did have arrangements to put the album on Homestuck Gaiden, but much the the chagrin of pretty much everybody, Andrew has ordered that it never receive new material.
apologies for all the set backs, we just want to make sure we're realising a quality product to you all. owo
Well, the date appears to have been missed again. Any idea when it's going to be out now?
Your chumhandle is tracedSparks and you have no idea why you even have a chumhandle, as you have no chums who use Pesterchum.
You also have a text adventure that is always open to commands, LandLost.
Oh, it's not out yet? I'm glad I didn't miss the release date like a jerk because I totally forgot about this lol
This is the 100% legit official word on the new release date.
No really though, we're close to release, just waiting on a few things...
