Surveillance Album Released On Bandcamp, Other Digital Outlets And Physical CD to Follow
It’s been a while since the last update, and  that was mainly due to me being locked up in the studio finishing up work on “Oceania”, the debut album from my new side-project “Surveillance”.  I’m happy to report the album is now not only finished, but available for sale on Bandcamp.  The album should be available on other digital retailers such as iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Music, Rhapsody, Spotify, and more around March 3rd, with the physical CD being available shortly after that.  The staggered format releases are a bit odd, I realize, but given that the project took a little longer than planned, I wanted to make it available to those who wanted it as soon as possible.  When I have a definite date back from the pressing plant, I will open pre-orders in the Assemblage 23 Online Store for the CD.
