January Update

Hi all!

A lot to discuss so jumping straight to the news:

THEY'RE HERE

The books have landed! The manufacturer also started registering it with various libraries in the UK so you might be able to find it in a few of them.

THEY'RE NOT HERE D:

We were expecting CDs and Vinyl to arrive sometime at the end of December / Beginning of January. As we're now in the last week of January we were booking me a hotel in North East so I could go and start packing stuff with Peter to ship you all we received some disappointing news.

"Unfortunately due to the CD assets being delivered close to the plant's Christmas break the lead time has increased. "

We were provided with last week of February as a delivery date for both CDs and Vinyl but the head of distribution said that they're "pushing the plant for a better delivery date".

From day one we informed the provider that we must receive cds and vinyl at the end of December / early January and they stood by those dates and we were expecting stuff to appear any day. But things do happen in mass production. We are not making standard plastic Jewel case cds for you. These are clamshell CDs of a good, premium material which take time to produce.

As of now, we will assume CDs and Vinyl will arrive at the end of Feb. As soon as they're here Peter will give me a piggy back ride to the North East and we will start shipping the following weekend.

Once they're here we will ship as many orders as we can, even if it means doing two batches in the same month. We will do everything we can to minimise this disruption.

We know it's disappointing. We are stressed and upset by this as it was going very smoothly so far. Particularly with all the sacrifices Peter and the team has made (both financial and mental).

We managed to hit the original target date to start shipping at the end of December and we even exceeded the original plan to ship 5% and shipped over 23% of the orders (the ones that had no vinyl or CD).

We don't believe in giving false excuses and we promised you transparency from day 1 and we stand by those words. Our future runs for CDs will be with a different provider but they will be made from a standard jewel casing so if you want to get the current version of the CD please order it via shop.trdarkangel.com while stock lasts.

Just to remind you that we are now only missing CDs and Vinyl.

Everything else (pendants, statuettes, books, posters etc etc IS WITH US!)

The Spear of Destiny Audio/Music Video

We will update you as soon as we receive the CDs and Vinyl.

TTFN,

Ash

Hi all,

Just a week ago we had our January update, but things happened since then.

As you remember from our last update “We were provided with last week of February as a delivery date for both CDs and Vinyl but the head of distribution said that they're "pushing the plant for a better delivery date".”

We were disappointed and unhappy with this delay. We worked with the distributors every day and as a result of those efforts we are happy to report that the VINYL ARE HERE!

Want one? Grab one here! <= also click here for more pics

https://trdarkangel.com/product/vinyl/

There are two double sided vinyl in each unit. All are top quality 33rpm and 180mg.

CDs are still delayed until the end of February so orders containing CDs will be delayed in shipping until they arrive, but we will continue to work with distributors and report back if this will change.

We are happy that the delay’s impact is now reduced and we are now packing our 2nd batch of orders that don’t contain CDs in them.

You will receive an email when your order is on the way; there are only two of us packing so please refrain from emailing and asking about individual orders update.

We will inform you when your order is shipped. Thank you for being patient.

EU import tax

We had a few people asking about EU and import tax due to Brexit.

There seem to be a lot of misinformation going on – nothing has changed and the same import/export rules within the EU will apply until December 30th.

As a confirmation and for own peace of mind please read the official page here:

https://www.gov.uk/transition

Lara’s Birthday

We decided to offer a 15% discount code for Lara’s birthday. It’s limited to first 15 users only though so be quick to use it. To redeem 15% discount, enter “happybirthday” at checkout in our shop.

Streaming

7 days until we go live on all major streaming services OMG

Raffle update

There is still time to enter and win the original tape from The Angel of Darkness audio session at Abbey Road Studios in 2002. The tape includes all original and unedited audio and is a ONE of a kind.

Make sure to enter:

https://raffall.com/9866/enter-raffl...peter-connelly

You can buy multiple tickets and make sure to share it with all your friends as the winner will only be selected once all 500 tickets are sold!

Original Tomb Raider: Chronicles synth

Per your suggestion we now made the original synth used for Tomb Raider: Chronicles for sale on its own and as part of a bundle. Once again, this is THE synth that was used in the game production and will be a good valuable piece in anyone’s collection:

https://trdarkangel.com/product/comp...lusive-bundle/

there also was a price drop on it so grab it before I convience Peter to change his mind and keep this treasure

Press requests for assets
If you run a blog or youtube channel and wish to cover the Dark Angel symphony then please email ash@peterconnelly.comwith any of the following requests:

- Interview with Peter Connelly and/or anyone in the team

- Trailer videos

- Song videos

- Images

- Photography (please specify which photos you want, eg recording sessions)

We will try to accommodate these ASAP.

Documentary
Our editor is busy editing our documentary. We expect it to be available by the end of the year (we recorded hundreds of hours during the past few years!).

We want to once again confirm that this will be available for free on Youtube, however backers and those who pre-ordered the album will see it first as a private screening in our backer facebook group.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/3724...83925862349582

Backer dinner

As per your request I am now working on logistics for a backer dinner this May. Of course this is subject to enough interest. This one will once again be a free to attend but you will be paying for own food and drink. We are looking on multiple venues around Manchester so please confirm your interest asap in our backer facebook group.


TTFN,


Ash

Finally downloaded this tonight...I was just taken on a frickin spiritual journey. Ear to ear grinning the whole time.

Damn. Thank you Ashka, thank you Peter, thank you to everyone who made this happen. I never thought we would be so lucky. Honestly, this is so awesome.

I bought off of iTunes and was not disappointed. The remastered AoD theme is simply gorgeous!
