Thanks to an unbelievable, mass movement of support, 100% of the costs for the production of the new 'Evolution' CD's and Vinyls were officially completed today, Friday, August 12th!!!! This goal was set with no expectations to come close to being accomplished. It would have been a blessing to reach even 25% of this but you blew that goal out of the water and came together in a way that never could have been anticipated....it was remarkable!!!!!
As many know, this new record 'Evolution' was ordered and produced in anticipation of it being properly toured and tours were not possible due to the current circumstances. A minimum of 90% of all hard albums and vinyl sales happen specifically on the road, during tours. A project like this has many costs and this particular scenario left no potential possibility to pay back the production costs owing for the order.
270 individuals around the world, stepped up and came together to purchase merchandise during a very hard time for all. This gesture is not only humbling, it is honoured and appreciated beyond words. It was your freewill to choose to support this project during challenging times and there is a debt of gratitude owing for your help and collaboration to help KATL through this obstacle!!!
Any further merch purchases made at this time going forward will be used to help pay for the lost tickets, baggage fees, and printed Evolution merch that will no longer be compensated by festival or show guarantees.
To all of the people around the world supporting the artists they love, inclusive of KATL, thank you for your comments, likes, merch purchases, words of encouragement and so on.....there's a whole lot of humanity out there in full swing and it's beautiful to witness.
Thank you, thank you, thank you ALL!!!
