May 3rd, 2018 – The Apocalyptic Lovers album Redemption Vol I mixed by Michael Wagener made it’s debut on The Manamal Streaming Radio station last week with rave reviews. Fans can also catch bassist Mike Nagy in a one on one interview with Manamal host and DJ Misti Dawn right here. Mike and Misti touch on many topics including the bands current vinyl campaign and their up coming new full length album and covers EP. Please check out the interview here.
Manamal Radio is a new station based out of Virginia that should please many listeners that are tired of mainstream rock radio. The owners Suzy and Paul state on their facebook page – “Welcome to our new streaming radio station ” The Manamal” playing all the great songs you don’t hear on the radio! The new home for everything that rocks!”
The band also debuted this week their new incentive program for their current vinyl campaign called the #Rocking100. The band is getting very close to their goal to launch Redemption Vol I on vinyl, so they thought they would unveil this new incentive.
On May 1st via their drummer Dave Hope’s facebook page, Hope mentioned that initially the #Rocking100 was going to be a surprise for the first 100 fans that placed their order for Redemption Vol I on vinyl. The first 100 orders were already receiving an exclusive guitar pick and signed photo, but now Hope had revealed the final piece of the puzzle to hopefully put the band over their vinyl campaign goal. The first 100 orders that are placed that initiate the vinyl going to press, will be thanked in print in the liners notes of the vinyl version of Redemption Vol I.
Hope stated – “This campaign is a lot like a kick starter and it takes everyone including band members to get it to launch and get our baby on vinyl. I know how much this vinyl means to myself and our bassist Mike, so knowing we would have more room on the vinyl packaging, it was really a no brainer to include everyone’s name in the liner notes that helps make it hopefully happen. We wanted to surprise everyone when and if they receive the vinyl record, but with time running out and our campaign being over 50% of the way there, we thought it would give us that extra little push to the finish line.”
As this article goes to print, the band just needs 19 more orders to be granted their final extension for the campaign and just 39 total to have it be pressed. For anyone interested in more details or sampling the Michale Wagener mixed album please click here.
