REFORGE THE STEEL TO BE RE-RELEASED ON CD – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW VERSION OF THE ALBUM PACKAGE + NEW STREAMING VERSION

New Versions of all the tracks

Following the positive feedback on the inclusion of more extensive backing vocals on our Waystone EP, we’ve updated the album tracks to feature full backing including backing vocal harmonies. The album has received a light remix and remaster to accommodate the new vocals.

The Dragon Reborn (Rebirth) Extended Version

The new version of the album includes an extended version of the song the Dragon Reborn which includes new lead and backing vocals and a remix.

Black

This version of the album features the “single” version from the past release which includes the additional solo from former band member Anthony Murch as well as a remix.

Bonus Tracks

We’ve included The Waystone EP as bonus tracks as they are recorded by the same line-up and production team they fit nicely with the updated version of Reforge The Steel.

Production

These were manufactured by the same company who produced our very well received vinyl sleeves/LP’s for A Crisis of Faith.

Super Jewel Case

The album is now housed in a Super Jewell Case. These are more resilient than the regular Jewel cases and are typically more resilient to scratches and damage than the traditional CD case.

Industry Standard Replication

Unlike our past CD’s which were duplicated, for this version of the album the CD we’ve used the replication method which is much higher quality. These are replicated to the highest industry standards.

CD Label

Following feedback from our fans, we have ensured that the CD labels on these are of extremely high quality and not “sticky” as many have complained in the past with previous releases.

Full Colour Lyric Booklet

We’ve included for the first time since our debut album’s initial print a full lyric book, which features the photography of Rachel Woods and is displayed in full colour. Every existing Patreon and Bandcamp as of the print of that booklet is also included in the credit sections.

Collectors Series

This will be the first release as part of our collectors series offering our releases in the highest quality physical format. We’ll be revisiting our back catalogue to update our previous releases in this fashion as we move forward. We want to offer the best possible experience for those who are buying albums and we feel this new format will deliver a much better product for our fans.

Definitive Edition

On top of a new physical release, we will be re-releasing the album onto streaming platforms as the “Definitive Edition” which can be found here. This version will include all of the updated tracks, The Waystone EP and the original album.

Bandcamp Friday Sales Results in for June 5th

In May the band released a special digital compilation for the sale called “Reforged in Faith”. The results of that sale were the following:

Compilation announcement – Seen post 702 – clicked on article – 95
Facebook Event invites sent out 833
Those who said “going” 37 Those who said “interested” 67
Those who did not respond to invites 739

Day before sale reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 834 Engaged: 47

Reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 593 Engaged: 49
Final Facebook post – Seen post: 109 – Engaged: 5
Bandcamp Totals: 339 Track plays from 155 Unique listeners

Final Sales: 12 (from the 155 who clicked through)

We tried a different approach this time focusing more on engaging through email and instead of running a Facebook event we ran an advert for the day. The results are:

Event announcement – Seen post 3,245 (Promoted Post)
E-Mails sent out: 1,884‬ (two different emails via MailChimp, and via GMail)

Reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 110 Engaged: 9
Bandcamp Totals: 267 Track plays Sales: 50 (from those 267)

This time we offered a package of two CD’s (Reforge The Steel and Reforge The Steel Live) along with a free download of the album.

As you can see the sale this month was considerably more successful although we had to use pay for services such as Facebook Adverts (targeting those who already “like” the page) and Mail Chimp to achieve better results. The end result was even thought there we less click through and plays on the tracks and less engagement then the previous campaign we had 38 more sales as a result of paying for the advertisement and MailChimp then using Facebook for free. In fact it highlights the difference in worth to bands of a free Facebook like over paid advertising.

We spent roughly £50 on both Facebook/MailChimp and our income for the day was £587.90.

BANDCAMP FRIDAY DEAL – REFORGE THE STEEL + REFORGE THE STEEL LIVE (£15 and FREE SHIPPING)

For today only we’re be doing both CD’s for just £15 with free shipping worldwide – so if you are yet to own our new album today is as good as time as any to order a copy! Click here to order now.
