Dear Morticians Assistants,
It has been seven months since we funded this campaign to press “Casket Spray” to vinyl and debut our first music video. In that time, Shadow Windhawk and the Morticians have undergone many changes and achieved many of our major goals. We have you guys to thank for so much of that. We shot and produced the very first SWATM music video in November 2014, with an online release on Dec. 17. Since that time, the video has been featured on Rue-Morgue.com’s “Tomb’s Jukebox”. In April 2015, the “Casket Spray” vinyl was also featured in a glowing 4.5 / 5 review from Rue Morgue Magazine (#154).
In February, we unveiled the brand-new “Goosebumps” styled artwork for the “Casket Spray” vinyl, illustrated by legendary cover artist, Tim Jacobus. Production began on the vinyl in February and we were informed that the record would take six weeks to finish. But, due to the overwhelming demand the pressing plant had for Record Store Day releases, our records were pushed to a 16-week turnaround time. The album is due to arrive on July 11th, 2015. As soon as the records are finally here, the 32 copies that were pledged for via this campaign will be mailed out ASAP. Any leftover copies will be made available for purchase on shadowwindhawkandthemorticians.com. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with this minor setback.
As of this time, we have produced, hand-packaged, self-addressed and shipped out all of the limited edition merch and special IndieGoGo exclusive perks that we promised to deliver on (save for the vinyl).
This Summer, we will be playing live at three events, prior to returning to the studio in August. We are honored to announce that we will be performing on the east coast of the US for the very first time this July, as one of the main acts at Ghouls Night Out Festival 2015.
Below are the dates where we will be performing live this Summer:
Friday, June 26th in Salt Lake City, Utah @ The Woodshed w/ Zombiecock.
Saturday, July 18th in Magna, Utah @ The Art On You Halloween In Summer Festival.
Saturday, July 25th in Stanhope, New Jersey @ Ghouls Night Out Fest ’15
Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts for all you guys have done to support this project.
We hope to see you at our shows this Summer!
Love and Respect,
Shadow Windhawk, Trip MD,
Tony “Mr. Drinks” and Willie Wolfbite
