Sorry for the double post and thanks Steve!


Abel Ganz, have just started our pledge campaign yesterday. It's the first time we've ever did one of these things and I have to say it's been a really good experience. We are using pledge to fund mastering and CD production of our latest album. In my opinion the album is our best and is the culmination of about 6 years work (we are not fast). It has brass bands, strinq quartets tubular bells, horn sections, Moogs, Hammond organs, Rickenbackers, lot's of traditional instruments and long songs. We have been lucky enough to have contributions from some really amazing musicians including Jerry Donahue from Fairport Convention and Malcolm Jones of Scottish folk rockers Runrig so it's all good.

It would be great if you could take a look at the video (we are generally much cheerier in real life but something about the camera going on!). Any advice on forums where we should be posting to or if you know a colony of proggers who might be interested in some really good prog rock please let me know.

Thanks

Stevie

Any questions about the album or recording please get back to me!

Here is the Pledge Blurb

All right Prog fans, at long last the new Abel Ganz album is here!

We have finished recording our latest album, Abel Ganz. Now we’re asking for your help to make Abel Ganz a reality. We’re asking you, our biggest fans, to help us raise the funds necessary to take our best album ever to a level of awesomeness that will melt brains and move hearts.

To raise the cash we need to make this happen, we’ll be offering an assortment of limited-edition Ganz Goodies to show our appreciation.
Back us at £8 or £50 and up, and you too could have a beautiful [ltd ed] digipak CD with your name inside in the credit notes! Maybe you would prefer a handwritten copy of the lyrics to a song of your choosing?

This album is without a doubt our best ever by leaps and bounds. You are just as much a part of this project as we are -- please support our Pledge Music Campaign. We’ll be giving you updates throughout the campaign and leaking you all sorts of exclusive sneak peeks on the album that we won’t be sharing on Facebook.

Want more info? Check out the track list for this album -- 10 songs totaling just less than 73 minutes in run time! That’s a LOT of Prog!

• “Delusions of Grandeur”
• "Obsolescence Pt.i Sunrise”
• “Obsolescence Pt.ii Evening”
• “Obsolescence Pt.iii Close Your Eyes”
• “Obsolescence Pt.iv The Dream”
• “Obsolescence Pt.v Dawn”
• “Spring”
• “Recuerdos”
• "Heartland "
• “End of Rain”
• “Thank You”
• “A Portion of Noodles”
• “Unconditional”
• “The Drowning”

Well, I thought that Shooting Albatross was excellent, so I will head over to make a pledge for this in the next day, or two

Thanks lazland really glad you liked Shooting Albatross we were really proud of that album it was a big step forward.

On the new album we spent a lot of time making sure that the instruments sounded as good as they could. In my opinion this album sounds much fuller and more organic than Albatross. We stretched ourselves a bit creatively and hopefully you'll be a fan of this one. I have to be honest and say I think it's our best work.

Thanks again!

If I order a cd, will it ship sooner than the stores receive it?

Hi Clepsydra you will receive the CD at least two weeks before the release date. So if you find yourself in windswept Glasgow in June you can come to the launch and know the tunes.

Hi Rick 

Thanks for your kind words! I'm sure I can speak for the rest of the Ganz when I say we really appreciate them. The fact that you and others enjoy our music it makes it really worthwhile. I've only gotten to know Jim's excellent show in the past few months and he does an amazing job. I've only chatted to him via the net but it would be great to meet him in person.

I hope you get a chance to hear the new album we would love to get your take on it.

Thanks again!

Absolutely amazing that in less than one week we have reached over the halfway mark towards our target.

Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed so far to our pledge music campaign.

We know however that we are not there yet and it will get harder from here.

Please, please if you can help us make it to the finishing line that would be truly awesome.

If you cannot pledge yourself - please share this.

Thank you!!!

Hey there Stevie or Ganz, I've a question for you. I'd like both the 24 bit download and a CD. Any chance of having a package deal? (Simon had a similar question on the discussion section of the pledge page.)

Thank you so much everyone for the kind words and for your support.

We appreciate it enormously.

I have asked the good people at Pledge Music about making available a package that includes physical CD + 24 bit download.

They have promised me they will do that for us just as soon as possible.   Thanks again.

Hi Everyone I just thought I'd post a preview for the up and coming Abel Ganz album. It's the intro section of the track 'Unconditional'. We've reached our pledge goal but the campaign is still running http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/abelganz . I hope you enjoy what you hear!
