If I were you I would only have it available two times a year. Buy it now or miss out. You have to many releases a year to have everyone playing catch up. I gave up awhile back.

Put out some $6 singles, too. Bandcamp gives you that control over your product. Flex those muscles.

Well, thanks for the advice, but to quote F. Sinatra..."I'll do it MY way..." (And not yours.) :P

No it wouldn't...it would be daylight robbery. :wink: Bandcamp delivers a far better dividend.



As far as I can see the average price for a new release on itunes is between 8 & 10 quid (and quite often less) so as I paid 12 quid for special metal i don't see how that can be daylight robbery.
