The Act of Estimating as Worthless - Amongst These Splintered Minds // Leaden Thoughts Sing Softly
The gears are turning slowly but surely. We began working on this project in October 2010, and we are finally almost on the home stretch. We hopefully be finished early this fall. The twelve songs are almost entirely tracked, and the packaging is designed, printed, and ready to be assembled. This will be a fairly small edition, only 50-75 cassettes will be made. We will also be printing limited runs of two silkscreen prints for this project, based on the on the drawings that were made for the album artwork. Here you can see some photos of the process - many mock-ups, and a glimpse at the final product (the big dark blue sheet above the little booklets). The next two or three months will be spent touching up recordings, mixing, mastering, sewing books, and folding and glueing cases. The production is being done by Mike Ditrio, and the package design and artwork is by Matthew Van Asselt. In the meantime, you can listen to and download 4 demo versions of songs from this release by visiting the band’s bandcamp page here: http://theactofestimatingasworthless.bandcamp.com/
