"If anyone asks you when the new A Higher Power EP is going to be released, do you know what you're going to tell them?
Hint: it's TODAY!!!
We debated the idea of doing the whole pre-order thing again, but figured why play that game this time around and just decided to offer it straight up. Cool?
So, here's the deal. There have been several updates made to the site. Some of the big ones are under the Media page where you can preview, not only the previous The Experiment EP and the accompanying bonus tracks, BUT now you can also listen to portions of the brand new A Higher Power EP, the four bonus acoustic tracks AND five selections from the recent live gig taken from The Hotel Café, which is now also available as a direct digital download from the site (the only way to get it at this time).
As some of you know, this release is the second of four planned EPs that will culminate in the release of a full length record and as such we stayed true to the concept of the first (in style and format). The dual vinyl options were such a hit the first time around, it's being offered again. So, you can order the standard black vinyl or the gorgeous white (or "whyte" as some refer to it) vinyl. Orrrr you can order a bundle that proved popular last time that includes both. Each variant is offered signed by Alain just like last time.
Of course there are cd's available, too. They are mini-replicas of the record. There's a 3 cd set available for a discount which includes the new EP, The Experiment EP and a release from Alain's band, Red Lightning from years ago.
A few more gems are listed including new T-shirt designs, digital downloads, beautiful handwritten signed lyric sheets, some autographed posters from the first full band live public gig (featuring what is quickly becoming an iconic shot of Alain and his Gibson Les Paul Custom in action) and last but not least... a couple of TEST PRESSINGS for the collectors out there.
Still with us? Good... almost done! Just a quick note, as always, to everyone that frequents these pages, the various social media sites, those that comment everywhere and share the YouTube vids and offer support and words of encouragement, the great fans that made it to what ended up being an outstanding gig at The Hotel Café (it's not even been two weeks since the show and the buzz is so good they're already asking us to come back and play again!), each and every one of you that support the releases by purchasing something from the shop and of course to all of our friends (including Shakey and Deano who play on the new record) and family... thank you, thank you, THANK YOU so much!! Love to you all. Please check it out and let us know what you think. Encourage radio to play it, tell your friends about it, etc. etc.
