The release coincides with Bandcamp Friday, when Bandcamp (who operate our online store) will once again waive their processing fees for 24 hours for the benefit of artists coping with the unprecedented disruption caused by the Covid-19 crisis (from 8am Friday morning to 8am Saturday morning - Irish Time).
We had planned on releasing a compilation album in late 2021, but considering the cancellation of our recording sessions and upcoming launches, we thought there was no time like the present to set things in motion!
*** PLEASE NOTE ***
This album is only available for pre-order. It will be released fully in physical and digital formats on November 6th, to coincide with Bandcamp Friday. You can find out more about Bandcamp Friday here.
However, by pre-ordering the album now, you are supporting artists and a not-for-profit label at a very uncertain time in the music industry. As we will be printing a limited run of physical copies of Rogha Raelach Volume 1, your pre-order also guarantees that you will get your hands on a physical copy when we launch in November.
So, if you would like to get your copy of Rogha Raelach Volume 1, you can:
A: Pre-order your digital copy for €10 on Friday July 3rd
B: Pre-order your physical copy for €15 (exc. postage) on Friday July 3rd
C: Wait until we release fully in November
(however we are printing a limited run of physical copies and we hope to pre-sell all copies before then)
Your pre-order will allow you to stream and download the first track of the album, Frank Keane's Reel by the Martin Hayes Quartet
Please get in touch if you have any questions and thanks again for your continued support!
