The album is finished! Peter from FineTune did an excellent job on the mastering. Chris Ruch from Darklight Media has designed the album cover and CD insert. We are proofing the artwork, production credits and lyrics now and have set a CD release date of February 13, 2007. The Corruption and Forever Lost clips on the "Audio Clips" page have been updated. (The rough mixes have been replaced with samples from the final mixes. They're also on this page in the right hand column.) Soon we will be unveiling the album cover and some additional audio clips. We're accepting pre-orders. Order now to get an autographed CD for $12.00 and free shipping. More news to come soon.
Fountain of Tears' upcoming album, entitled "Fate", is currently being mastered by Peter van't Reit at FineTune in The Netherlands. Peter has mastered Stream of Passion, Ayreon, Symphony X, Asia, Epica, etc. It's been an interesting experience to work on the all-important mastering stage with someone who's on another continent, but it has been going well and we're excited to have Peter involved with our project. A release date will be forthcoming, but we are now accepting pre-orders for the album.
Last weekend I was back in the studio with Joey Daub and Kurt Bachman to finish the bulk of the mixing for our album. We were able to finish all of the main tracks and will now work on finalizing a few interludes and transitions.
The Fountain of Tears album is moving closer to completion. The recording
phase is over and we are now mixing the album and editing a few effects to
place between some of the songs. We have final mixes for a couple songs and
they sound great. The production on this album is top-notch and we are
excited about finally hearing the results of the long hours and hard work
that have been invested in this project. We thought we would be announcing a
release date by now, but so far we can't. There are too many variables
affecting the scheduling process. Other acts such as The Roots, Amos Lee and
Justin Timberlake are also working on new projects at the same studio and we
have to work around their schedules. We know we have a great product and are
waiting til it is complete to shop it around again for a possible distribution deal. In the meantime, we may begin playing a few shows again.
We miss seeing you guys!

many people have been asking for our first
CD. They are hard to find since they have been
out of print for years. We just found a few shrinkwrapped
copies in Erik's basement. If you would like
to order one they are available on our merchandise
Joe Daub has just launched his own web site. Check it
