The artwork looks really nice. Now I just have to find out when midnight your time is in Norway. Probably around six in the morning. >_>

wait, if I correct the typo, will you start to think its not me?
14th-Sep-2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
awwwww... we cant preorder them? Have you contemplated that to get even MORE sales is to allow a preorder and prepay then they ship that day! So we can still get the autographs!

I work that night! WHAAAAAA
14th-Sep-2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
Let me think about that...that might make sense.

I don't suppose you guys will have any with you, early, for your show at DNA Lounge on the 8th, will you? I've already bought my tickets for the show. It would be awesome to get my hands on a CD in person. If not, I'm sure I'll order from the website anyways, but I would <3 you forever if you had the CDs at the show!
14th-Sep-2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
nope.
14th-Sep-2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
They'll be being printed then.
14th-Sep-2010 08:15 pm (UTC)
Aww. That makes me sad, but I <3 you guys anyways!

Thanks for the awesome music!
14th-Sep-2010 08:44 pm (UTC)
Hurray!
14th-Sep-2010 09:00 pm (UTC)

14th-Sep-2010 10:09 pm (UTC)
OMGYAY.
I foresee a waiting room happening on facebook. omg. omgomgomg. Yay. 8D
15th-Sep-2010 03:52 am (UTC)
What, no IRC channel like last time?
15th-Sep-2010 02:30 pm (UTC)
Well, yeah. That too. :p
14th-Sep-2010 10:17 pm (UTC)
Aww no pre-order?

It appears I now have plans for the evening of October 15th! =D
14th-Sep-2010 10:47 pm (UTC) - Oh noes!
That's the wreckage of the Ophelia on the cover, isn't it? Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! How will our intrepid heroes survive?!?!

Seriously, I'm looking forward to this. I'll just be getting home from Arizona on the 14th, so I fully intend on staying up and ordering the album on the 15th.

One question, though: Why the delay for a digital release?
15th-Sep-2010 02:55 am (UTC)
I am SO EXCITED. Well, at least I know what'll be playing non-stop in the days leading up to Steamcon! And yessss....I know some people who *will* be getting a CD in their christmas stockings....
15th-Sep-2010 06:33 am (UTC)
Already scheduling the listening parties in Steam SkyCity!
15th-Sep-2010 01:13 pm (UTC)
Midnight PST?

Just making sure!
15th-Sep-2010 05:53 pm (UTC)
Why yes. My student refund check WILL be going toward Abney Park gear. =D Super super super excited!
18th-Sep-2010 06:32 pm (UTC) - Perfect B-day present
I've been waiting forever for this!
I told my mother about it right after I saw it in my inbox. It's 11 days before my Birthday, so I told my mother that it would be a perfect present. She agreed, but now she expects to buy it in the shop instead of online. Good luck with that! Even if your wonderful music ever where to reach my lame, unnoticeable country, only that would take forever and ever sadly.
She's complaining about the shipping, but if it's so troublesome I'll just buy it myself! Jeez, she can't even lay some money on her own daughter's birthday.

What is "I've Been Wrong Before" about? Some asshat told me it was "the ultimate anti-atheism song", which I refuse to believe. It's my favorite track! <3
1st-Dec-2010 10:38 pm (UTC)
The whole point of the song is it's anti-nothing. It lists all these thing s that are bullshit, followed by "but I dont know, I've been wrong before, I might be wring about this too! Maybe there are ghosts, and martians, and gods and shit! I mean, maybe, who knows!"

So, it's basically an anti-closed-mindedness song. The only way to really be a fool is to be Absolutly certain your right.

Thank you for that. The guy pissed me off, and when I get pissed off, I get confused. It's a lovely album and is certainly my favorite one from AP. Nice work and beautiful writing! <3

Wow, I just found out about the album. I will buy it soon! I recently found out about you guys from a steampunk friend. I'm loving Airship Pirates and Stigmata Martyr on his Zune, and eagerly hearing the rest of your stuff on it. I love the unique sound you get from those cool instruments!

I love the concept of your band, and I'm especially impressed that you're self-produced! It's really cool that you guys actually model your merch, make your own vids, and post messages to us yourselves. I'm looking forward to hearing your new album.

I'm not really into DragonCon, but the chance to see you guys perform so close to my college (GA Southern) is so, so tempting! I can't really afford that, but I'm certainly getting the CD and some merch for my birthday (October)! Keep up the awesome music and band! \,,/
