THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NUMBER 67
JULY 29, 2022
ELM TREASON TIDBITS
– We received no submissions for our “WITHOUT A TRIBE” album cover contest (sadly). We’re working on some ideas now.
– The “UPTOWN Q” Facebook Group is now at 144 members! Slowly we grow…. slowly… Thank you to those who have joined!
– We’ve decided there will be 13 songs on “WITHOUT A TRIBE,” and much like we did with “THE VOICE OF TREASON,” we will offer bonus discs with exclusive material – BOTH on vinyl and CD! (Digital downloads, too).
– We are now anticipating a tentative release date of November 15th for “WITHOUT A TRIBE.” Looking at all the manufacturing and production we have ahead of us – and scheduling things so we don’t burn ourselves out – this is a pretty firm estimate.
– We plan on making the release of this new album a grand event – similar to “THE VOICE OF TREASON” – with exclusive content, behind-the-scenes stuff, bonus tracks, etc… More details will follow in the coming months.
