about

-Initial Download Codes and perks will be emailed to you within 24 hours of subscribing-

This year we've put together the most beastly and insanely beautiful releases in the history of our label. This Subscription Series includes up to 9 full-length releases! All subscribers will get big discounts on the releases.

A rundown of artist’s lined up for this year include: William Ryan Fritch, Seabuckthorn, From The Mouth Of The Sun (aka Aaron Martin and Dag Rosengvist), The Green Kingdom, Alder and Ash, and kj. The year we'll introduce 5 vinyl, 7 CDs, and 1 Digital only album.

We wanted to give you multiple ways to subscribe to all the music, not to confuse you, but to give you the right option. Be sure to READ CAREFULLY exactly what you will be getting with the option you select. We have an options for vinyl and cassette lovers, cd lovers, those who love both, those who just want digital, and those who want it all. The options here allow you to pay for the subscription series all at once, Plus, because worldwide shipping is expensive and packing materials are costly and waste trees all releases either ship in one big well packaged batch.

MORE IN-DEPTH ON THIS YEAR'S RELEASES:
2017 will see Lost Tribe Sound releasing one original soundtrack (Eagle Hunters) and a new volume of film music (Music For Film Vol. II) from William Ryan Fritch, giving the fans a chance to hear a side of Fritch’s scoring work unlike anything else that has come before it, plus Fritch will be releasing an album that’s been three years in the works. It is the most passionate and strongest work of his career. Also, we are releasing the incredible third full-length album from Aaron Martin and Dag Rosenqvist’s collaborative project From The Mouth Of The Sun in a gatefold tip-on style 180gram vinyl format and our new handcrafted panoramic style CD format with original artwork by Gregory Euclide. And let's just say the album is perhaps a career best from the duo. Also, the stunning new full-length from experimental guitarist Seabuckthorn in April on both 180gram vinyl and CD, again with artwork by the ever-amazing Gregory Euclide. In addition, we will be adding three unbelievably talented musicians to the roster, we have been long time fans of The Green Kingdom and he is creating a release for LTS unlike any other in his career (plus to mention it will be his first release ever on vinyl), utilizing a stripped down acoustic approach, and limiting his normal electronic methods for a new full-length album should be something special. Other new additions to LTS include the ominous and impactful solo cello project of Alder & Ash, whose talent was immediately apparent on his 2016 debut release Psalms for the Sunder, so much so, that we are honoring it with a reissued physical edition along side his brand new full-length this summer. And lastly, we will close the year with our first purely ambient release in the label's history, from a gent whose debut release on Own Records is one of the reasons we can get to sleep in the evening. It comes from the artist, kj who entertains influences from early Eno to Leyland Kirby's Caretaker project, yet kj retains a pure hearted sound that stands out among the sea of artists in this genre. Plus, we've added an album from William Ryan Fritch & Matt Finney, titled, A History, In Boxes.

With the uncertain times we all face in the coming years it was not an easy decision to move forward with this massive subscription series, but we believe in this music whole heartedly. We believe in the support of our fans and that folks still want to have and hold well-crafted physical editions of the music they love. We believe in these musicians and the power their music holds to inspire us, to calm us, and to get our warrior blood flowing. Come the end of the year when we look back at the results, it may be a make it or break moment for us, but at least we'll have given it our all.

We'll be spending an enormous amount of time this year handcrafting each of the new highly limited and hand-numbered CD edition, giving subscriber’s a personal behind the scenes look at what's going on with label, and delivering exclusive subscriber perks that are guaranteed to be on the generous side. It is our hope that you will put your trust and excitement behind this series and join us in this ambitious endeavor. We will pull it off, after all we did help bring William Ryan Fritch’s 12 album subscription series to life.

----------------------------------------------------

FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

• When can I expect my items to arrive? All subscriber options will receive a Bandcamp download code (choice of 24 Bit WAV, FLAC, 320 MP3, etc.) for the individual songs on the Prelude to Decline - Subscription Series set the same day they subscribe along Bandcamp download codes for all the other albums in the bundle you selected, emailed to you within 24 hours of purchase. Each physical item like vinyl or CD, will ship out at one time. All physical items will be shipped to you immediately after purchase.

• Will my items arrive in good condition? Absolutely! We want your albums to arrive in excellent condition. The bundled CDs will arrive in a sturdy box. With the shipping option here, entitled EARTH SAVER BUNDLE, everything will arrive in vinyl and/or CD format (depending on the option selected) secured between two oversized cardboard inserts (stiffners) then given extra padded corner protection. This will then be placed in an outer box that will allow a layer of tightly packed of biodegradable peanuts to surround these collectors items. We have gone to great lengths to make sure the shipping materials are of the highest quality. So rest assured even if you are overseas or in Canada, these will arrive in amazing shape!

•What is the basic difference between each Bundle option? MASTER BUNDLE - 30% off the entire series. This is for the ultimate fan, basically you'll receive every perk we have, plus you'll get a physical copy of each release on vinyl and CD if we have done two formats for each. Otherwise you'll just get a cassette or CD for some since that is the only format they are coming out in. In total you get 5 Vinyl, 7 CDs and 1 Digital Only albums with the MASTER BUNDLE.

FAN BUNDLE - 25% off the entire year. This might be the preferred level for most fans, since it insures you get a physical copy of every release this year in one format or the other. Basically if the release is coming out on vinyl we will make sure you get one of those for sure. If the release is only coming out on CD, we will also make sure you get one of those. So you could say this bundle leans more towards vinyl as the preferred option, unless there isn't a vinyl for a particular release, then you get CD or Cassette. In total you get 5 Vinyl, 3 CDs, and 1 Digital only album with the FAN BUNDLE.

VINYL ONLY BUNDLE - Pretty self explanatory, fans of purely vinyl this is your option. You'll receive 20% off with this option. We will send the 5 major vinyl releases your way. Only downside, is this option excludes the two Alder & Ash releases on CD, and the kj -spells album. All are amazing albums so you may be bummed if you miss out, so maybe the FAN BUNDLE is your ticket, but either way is cool by us. In total you get 5 Vinyl and one Digital-Only album with the VINYL BUNDLE.

CD BUNDLE - Again, pretty straight forward, fans of the purely CD format this is your option. You'll receive 20% off if you go with this option. We will send you the 7 major CD releases. However this option excludes the Green Kingdom album which is vinyl-only. So if that saddens you, maybe the FAN BUNDLE is your ticket, but either way is cool by us. In total you get 7 CDs and one Digital-Only album with the CD BUNDLE.

DIGITAL BUNDLE - We didn't forget about you digital folks, we know you're out there, and we have much love for you. You'll receive 15% off if you go with this option. We will send you the 9 major digital full-length releases planned for the year as they come out.

•Can you give me more details on what each of these shipping options mean?

All major physical releases you've subscribed to will ship to you in one large well protected package within 4 days of your purchase. At that point you will receive everything we've released physically for the series, based on your subscription option. This saves you the most money on shipping and handling charges and uses a hell of a lot less packing materials (which is awesome for the Earth and us)! ALL EARTH SAVER BUNDLE Subscribers will receive digital download codes for each album in their bundle emailed to them within 24 hours of purchase.

That said about all the shipping options, this series is one of the cheapest options you'll find around the world to be able to get your hands on these artifacts. We realize it's a good chunk of money, but nobody is getting rich here, especially when we factor in the hours it takes to design, assemble, pack and ship the albums. These serious collectors items were expensive for us to make and expensive to ship.

• Once I subscribe to the series, will I be able to cancel my subscription? Unfortunately once you subscribe you will not be able to cancel your subscription, since we will begin delivering Subscriber perks and the albums to you digitally the same day.

• I make films, commercials, and/or television programs, is it possible to license your music for one of these projects? Yes, we license our music to a wide variety of commercial projects worldwide. Our clients include, GoPro, PBS, CBS, documentary/independent filmmakers and more. We have a very large catalog of pre-existing music for licensing that includes well-known composers and song-writers from around the world. So, our catalog is not limited to simply the music from this Subscription Series. We can even create a 100% custom piece of music to suit your needs. Please get in touch with some details about your upcoming project here: info-at-losttribesound-dot-com

• I have already purchased one or more of the albums from this series from another store before I knew about the Subscription Series. I don't want duplicate albums, can I still subscribe to the series at a discounted rate, minus the albums I already have? The answer is yes! We don't want you to miss out on this massive collection of albums offered here. Send us a quick email to info-at-losttribesound-dot-com. Let us know which album/s you already have and we'd be happy to work out a fair price for you to join the rest of the Subscription Series.

• My address and/or has changed since I first subscribed, how can I get that updated? No worries, please send us a quick email including you name and the new address/email address to info-at-losttribesound-dot-com. Otherwise, we use the address provided through Bandcamp at the time of purchase as the shipping address for all physical items in the series. It is the buyer's responsibility to make sure we receive the correct address information. Lost Tribe Sound will not be liable for items shipped to an incorrect address if it was the one provided to us by the buyer.

• We hope everyone enjoys this insane amount of incredible music. If there are any questions not answered here please contact us at: info-at-losttribesound-dot-com
