When we decided to celebrate seven years of making music by giving away all of our albums for one month, we definitely did not anticipate the kind of enthusiasm we’ve experienced over the last five days.
We launched pagecxvi.com/jubilee and tweeted a single tweet about it on Friday morning, and within ten minutes the server crashed because so many people were downloading simultaneously. We were flabbergasted.
Our drummer, Dann (who built pagecxvi.com/jubilee), worked non-stop on Friday to get things moving quickly again. Two server upgrades and 18 hours later, we had given away more than 10,000 downloads of our records. Now, five days later, that number is nearing 50,000. In terms of minutes, hours, and days, we’ve given away over two and a half years of music since Friday.
That is bananas.
We want to take a minute to thank you for supporting what we do over the last seven years. We couldn’t continue if it weren’t for our fans, and we love sharing our music - especially with people who appreciate it.
In the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing some pretty big plans for making even more music. Here’s a rough outline:
We’d like to focus on the Church calendar, and we’re planning on making three new EP’s to fit with:
Lent/Ash Wednesday/Maundy Thursday
Good Friday/Easter/Ordinary Time
In addition, we’re planning on creating a new original music album by The Autumn Film.
We are already assembling a very special team of people and are writing songs that we cannot wait to share with you.
We need your help making these records, and we’ll let you know specifically how you can help soon.
Thanks again for everything.
