News from Kingsbury

From Kingsbury.net:

In November, we are going to release a new version of our website, kingsburymusic.net. On this new version, we are going to release our new EP "Lie To Me" for free. You will also be able to download everything we have ever recorded for free. We will have live recordings, random tracks that never got released, studio footage, all the album artwork, all the lyrics, and maybe even a few cover songs if we don't get sued for playing them.

Kingsburymusic.net is going to be the portal to everything we do from here on. Every time we record a new song, we will post it. All the pictures we take, the videos we make, the ideas we have, everything will be on the site. And we will post it as quickly as we can make it. Think of it as an online music blog, but the only content will be content we create.

The site is going to have a donations link, so that if you feel so inclined, you can help us with making our wonderful content. All of the donation money will be reinvested into our recording studio, gas for our van, and other infrastructure we may need to make more abundant and higher quality audio and video.

All of our records and related merchandise will still be on sale for all of you on Post-Records.com. Hardcopy releases will still be released on Post-Records, and if we get enough money from donations, we are going to press vinyl copies of "Lie To Me" and "The Great Compromise".

We strongly feel that the way people consume music and media is radically changing, and as technology changes, the relevance of the album will continue to come into question. Rather than try to fight a changing media climate, we would rather spend our time setting up a system that we can be as creative and constant as possible.

We are going to change the way we do things as a band, because our culture and technology is changing. We are excited about the change, and we hope you are too.
