Gamma Knife was released on CD months after the digital release so I don't think it gained much interest so it'll probably go the same way again as long as people actualy ask for a CD release.

^ Exactly. That's the problem. You have to release things at the same time. Or at least soon after. Things fall off the radar in months. I also wouldn't spend money twice on the same product (without remastering/bonus tracks/etc) but idk about others.


Guess it's pleading to TD for me.

Just release your download in FLAC and problem solved.  People can burn their own CD.

Well, the $15 digital package includes a tee, a guitar pick and a sticker. You could put it as paying for that instead if you desire

Update form Toby with a link to a teaser for the new album. Listening to it now and it's brilliant, the first 5 minutes are how Gamma Knife should have sounded.

Greetings! Just a very brief message to let you know that a 13-minute teaser trailer for the new KAYO DOT double-album, HUBARDO, is now online at
https://soundcloud.com/tobydriver/kayo-dot-hubardo-teaser

We're still running our preorder to help fund the mastering and manufacturing of this record, so please have a listen to the trailer, and then head on over to http://kayodot.bigcartel.com to preorder a.s.a.p. so we can get this record out in time for our tenth anniversary in Autumn 2013. We need to sell about 200 more copies of the vinyl to move this along! Thanks so much for your ears & heart & continued support!

This is probably unrelated to the new album in progress, but Toby just released a 10-minute soundtrack piece, now on his Bandcamp page.  It's called "THE POD".

the song is beautiful, but I cant help that the audio quality sounds quite low on this file. I hope it sounds better on the actual album.

It sounds less dense.  More like they're telling a story.  I'm really excited to see where they go with this...  

I bet we're going to see some new Kayo Dot faces.  I've never heard a song from them or any band that sounds like this track.

Here's the full update from KD that the link comes from.

It's with great pleasure that we present to you the first preview track, "And He Built Him a Boat," from Kayo Dot's forthcoming double-album, HUBARDO, due this fall.

http://kayodot.bandcamp.com/track/and-he-built-him-a-boat-2

"And He Built Him A Boat" is the record's ninth track, so the lyrics have to do with events about 5/8 of the way through the album's narrative. Along with the band's core members, the song also features guest backing vocals by Jessika Kenney (who has also sung for Wolves in the Throne Room, Sunn0))), ASVA, and many others), and BC Campbell.

We hope you enjoy this song, and please spread the link around if you may!
We're still running the preorder for the 3xLP at http://kayodot.bigcartel.com - we need to sell about 150 more copies of the vinyl in order to have enough money to manufacture it, so please don't hesitate to snap this up.

We also have a few shows coming up in NYC:

This Saturday, July 13 at Spectrum as part of the NYX II: New York Progressive and Experimental Rock Festival. Playing all new material!
http://www.spectrumnyc.com/

Friday, August 16 at St. Vitus Bar with MIRRORGATE, their first show in two years and possibly their last ever?

Thanks for reading, listening, and supporting!
