Bros. Proofing is long done. The DVDs are all pressed and done in my living room. The pages of the book are done printing. We are waiting on the illustrious Tony who is hand-making all the casings of the books. He needs about 2 more weeks to get through them. He has done about 400. They look incredible. T...hen they will get bound to the pages. Then we paste in DVD sleeves (which are done). Then we stuff with DVDs and mail them out. The books should be going out in a little less than 3 weeks. No one wants to be done with this more than us. We guarantee you. Hang tight. Don't worry. Check out the proof of existence/progress links:

Book Update

We are proofing. This takes much longer than expected cause we want everything to be absolutely perfect! Basically we are making sure what we designed on a computer prints out the way we want it to, so it's a big back and forth process with the printer. This next proof should be our final proof and we should get it at the beginning of next week. Once it's approved then we can print the actual pages. This is about a 4-5 day job. The handmade covers are almost all done being handmade. Then the books will be bound. That will be another 3-4 (business) days. The DVDs are going to duplication early next week. That's a two week turnaround with the quality control we are having done. Then we need to do some more hand stuff and finally mail them out to you. So it is looking like 2-3 weeks until that point!!!! Don't be sad. When you get them you will be happy B)

Photobook and DVD Set Update

To everyone who preordered a Photobook/DVD Set! Finally, after 6 months of painstaking labor and thinking and rethinking and laying out and editing and writing text and choosing photos and editing photos and editing text and organizing and reorganizing (and touring), the photobook is finished and has been sent to the printing press.

And after 2 AND A HALF YEARS OF UTTER HELL the DVDs will be finally finalized in the next week and will be sent off immediately upon completion. The DVDs take less time than the books so it will all be ok. The hand made covers are in the process of being hand made.

SO! Depending on the production process, barring any weird delays or fuckups, we should have a finished product in hand in about 2 weeks. A liiiiittle bit behind schedule but still pretty good.

And then we will ship them to you IMMEDIATELY!

So, sit tight. It's almost finished.

And hold off on the Paypal disputes, cause if you win, someone else will get your book dummy!

Don't worry. It's even cooler than I thought it would be and it's definitely worth the wait.

Oh yeah, we sold just over 500.
I can't believe it.

An Interesting Discussion

I was making myself some tea the other morning, and all of a sudden this woman called me and started asking me questions about a lot of different stuff. She kept going with these questions for like an hour, and we talked about everything from the music business to our Earth Tour DVD to interpretations of our songs. I guess she was recording our conversation, because just a minute ago, I got this link in my email inbox:

HORSE the band Reigns in Africa Tour

hahahahah ahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahaahhahahahahahahahahahaa

HORSE the band Reigns in Africa Tour

YES, a Toto reference turned into a spelling joke with a tri-fold meaning.

We are touring Africa. Not just two fly-in shows in South Africa. We are driving around the whole country for 17 days bitch. We are playing 12 shows. We are playing in Mozambique. The dates are posted.

As primarily 15-48 year-old Americans, you probably don't even know where Mozambique is. It is possibly not even a real place. But we are touring there, and people will be at the show.

Here is a useful link for you: www.wikipedia.org

This link is more useful: http://horsetour.wordpress.com/

No AIDS jokes. Too predictable

We will not be doing any press for this tour. Actually, we are never going to do any press ever again.

Feels lonely... having no peers. No one's living at the top. No one's at the fucking bottom.

T-shirt ideas for tour:
Meet me in Mozambique. (Circa Survive joke shirt)
I'm in Maputo bitch. (I'm in Miami Bitch joke shirt)

We are very excited and grateful for this experience.

This thing is happening and it is happening soon.

Preliminary details:

  • 15 hours (our goal) of HD footage, taken from 120 hours of raw footage resulting in 6 DVDs showing the countries we visited, the people we met, the shows we played, what we drank and ate, everything crazy and funny and sad that happened, and most importantly, us :)
  • Think of this not as a DVD or movie, but more like a novel in video form. Something you spend a lot of time with to reap a greater artistic reward for your soul. A Rock Odyssey, but something even greater, as Rock is only one of many parts of the equation!
  • 1 live DVD: Every song we played on tour, each song's footage and audio comes from a different show in a different country.
  • The DVDs will be nestled into the back cover of a hard-cover full color photo book. This will be either 50 or 100 pages. The size is still unknown but it will probably be bigger than a DVD case. The books will be one of a kind with actual tour artifacts (ticket stubs, fliers, plane tickets) incorporated (sewn, pasted) into each.
  • The books will be hand-bound (professionally, it will NOT fall apart, they will look and feel exactly like any book you buy in a store, quality-wise) and will be very beautiful and special items.
  • The photo book will contain the best of the best pictures from tour and will follow the tour chronologically, so you can reference the photos while watching the DVD. Each member will write their memories of or explain specific photos which need explaining. There will be a lot of written content from the touring party including comments intended to humiliate other band members.
  • And much much much much more...

Official EARTH TOUR website is coming soon, with photos not included in the book from around the world, exclusive video clips, a trailer, detailed statistics, and a Paypal button so you can buy yours or donate.

In all likelihood this will be a preorder only item. It will cost so much to make that we will need to have money up-front to create them. The final amount we make will depend on the preorders we receive. Due to "no one buying any of our shit but thinking we are still making money???? (Desperate Living 3000 copies sold in 4 months, 48 Hours in Ukraine 200 copies sold)" we can no longer afford to take the risk to press a sensible amount by charging it to a credit card as we have in the past and then paying off that credit card when people buy it, because of this reason: we don't have any money and no one is buying our shit, so we won't take the risk.

If you want one, you pay for it before it exists. We are HORSE the band. We won't fuck you over.

If you want this book, you will preorder it. It is possible we will press a few extra copies, but at some point we will place a deadline on preordering. However many people have preordered by that point, that will be the pressing. If only 200 preordered, then this is an item limited to 200 copies, ever. Who knows, maybe it will be 1000. After that you will not be able to order it unless we happen to have like 5 still sitting around. This is very risky. Also we might just increase the price by 6-700% on the last 5 remaining copies... A price is coming soon. We are trying to balance out "making something really fucking cool and not too small so you can't see it good" without "being so insane it cost $100 a copy just to make". We hope to come to a compromise in which this is the coolest thing you have ever bought from a band, but can also afford it. However, it is not going to be cheap. I would estimate, depending on the size, it will cost between $50 to $100, plus shipping. Which, is not that god damn expensive considering you probably have been buying box sets of stupid Comedy Central shows for years at $40 each and those come with like two pieces of paper and are bright yellow! So if you want one start saving up now.

Remember, 6 DVDs. 50-100 pages of photos with band commentary. 45 countries. The biggest shitload of shows, people, parties, jokes, places, food, embarrassment, failure, misery, happiness from the most diverse collection of sources you have and ever will see in your life.

No one is allowed to buy two. No one is going to be able to sell this on eBay unless it is their own personal copy. We will be writing your name in your book, personally.

Preorder will be up soon. Keep checking back. I expect it to be open for about 2 months. If you want one you will get one.

One final thought: we didn't make any money on this tour. Actually when all was said and done and every last bill came in months after the tour was over we lost about a grand. In total we spent nearly $100,000 of money we never had, on credit cards and on good faith. We took a risk. We made $99,000 back on one tour. This book is something real to hold and has been worked on for over 2 years now, in the brainstorming, booking, organizing, touring, and now piecing together of a representation of the unrepresentable. The book represents everything that you wish would be different about life. The more people who see it and hear about it, the more people will stop living within their self-imposed confines and be real. The world will get better. I know the story is old now, but if you ever felt inspired by this tour or band, buying this book would be a really good way to show that and support the band, and the idea. The pursuit of "enough". The best way possible, to us.

PS- Late March, EARTH TOUR Leg 2.75 (or something). Africa. Official announcement and tour dates soon.
