So, after months and months of waiting for both us and all of you guys, our brand new album 'Hollow Crown' hits UK shop shelves on Monday via Century Media Records
We are all very excited for the album to finally be out there, and even though we know that many of you have already heard it over the last two weeks we ask that you please show us some genuine support and actually go out and buy this CD.
Hollow Crown is also out now in Australia, so if you live down under please go pick that record up. The more of you that buy it, the more likely it is that your support will help us get over to you on tour!
We can also finally confirm that Hollow Crown will be available in Japan via Century Media licensing partner Doom Patrol Records on Feb 21st, 2009.
So if there's any Japanese fans out there, put the date in your diaries and make sure you check the album out! We really want to come and play for you guys!
Sadly we also some bad news. Thanks to "logistical problems" at the distribution company and at the distributor's warehouse in Europe, the release of 'Hollow Crown' on the European mainland has been unfortunately delayed at the last minute.
We know how much this sucks, and we can only apologise profusely to all our fans in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Spain, Portugal and Hungary, but this was completely beyond our control. We were only informed by our label late last night, and there is really nothing we can do about it at all. This is really shitty for us too, so we hope you all understand!
We can only ask that all you guys bear with us and be patient for just a few more weeks. Hollow Crown will be with you and on shop shelves across all of Europe by the end of February, and we will be back playing shows in April with Comeback Kid, Misery Signals, Bane and Outbreak, and we'll also be at Summerblast in Germany this June.
So, once again, we're sorry Europe - we hope you guys can find the patience to bear with us and that you'll all still be psyched to go out and buy the album a few weeks from now.
