Blog » The Morningstar [EP] is Available Now!
The Morningstar [EP] is officially available for free at theapacherevolver.bandcamp.com. If we run out of free downloads for the month, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @apache_revolver and we’ll hook you up.
I’d like to thank everyone for their support throughout the project. I’d like to thank my family for buying me instruments as a child, for putting up with the endless hours of me practicing Metallica riffs in my bedroom at full volume (is there any other way to practice?), and for always respecting the effort I put into my music whether they enjoyed it or not. I’d like to thank my friends for their excitement in The Morningstar [EP]‘s release, even though I’m positive very few of them care for death metal. I’d like to thank blond Carl (the drummer) for constantly re-assuring me that my music is actually decent. We all know how difficult it is to think your own music is actually worth a damn.
But above all, I’d like to thank you. All of you who are reading this post or listening to our music are the reason I ever started playing. I was never one for live performances, it was always about the art of recording specifically so I could share my creations with others. Without people listening, my music is just shy of meaningless. That’s not to say it doesn’t mean anything to me personally, but I feel like the music means exponentially more when the emotions I used to write/record it mirror the emotions of the listeners. I remember listening to Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here album, or the Beach Boys All Summer Long album, or Metallica’s Ride The Lightning as a child and feeling such an emotional connection with the artist without knowing anything about them. I can only hope The Morningstar [EP] does the exact same to just one person out there. We’ve received an overwhelming response (far better than we ever thought we’d achieved in an entire year) in the last 24 hours since it’s release (especially you guys, Russia! so excited it’s a hit in Russia), and it inspires us to create more. I genuinely thank all of you.
Saturday, May 24th, 2014 Carl and I finished the mastering on the EP and we’d like to make it available to everyone as easily as possible. Get it for free at Bandcamp. Listen via YouTube (albeit the quality is a little distorted and compressed on YouTube). Listen via Soundcloud. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Thanks again for all of the love. We’re currently working on a special project for our Russian fans. Should be out within a week or so. Take care. Love everyone. Love everything.
