Today marks the release of The Lake and the Mountain. Please remember that this is the non-metal album; the metal one – From the Cosmos to the Mountains – follows in exactly one month’s time.
If you’re interested in physical copies, you may find them here. Their cost without shipping is $9.00.
Speaking of which, shipping is a pain (it always has been) but prices for some areas have gone up. Shipping in the United States is $3.00, but to Canada the price is now $5.00 and to Europe it’s now $13.00, and that’s using the US post, our cheapest option. We (Appalachian Winter and Nine Gates Records) hate to see these prices go up in such a manner, but it’s also imperative that the Label not operate at loss of money, either. The price increase is not retroactive to releases before this one, so you’ll still only pay the previous shipping price for not just my older releases, but anything else you might want from Nine Gates at least.
If you’re interested in the physical release (and if you’re not, the downloads are always free), if you bundle your order with something else from NGR, the shipping will be cheaper than ordering two things singly. I believe the number to Europe was after the first $13.00, additional bundled CDs would only be $4.00. Likewise with the US and Canada, except at smaller prices (the US would see an additional $1.00 per additional CD). If you’re in Europe and you want both The Lake and the Mountain and next month’s release of From the Cosmos to the Mountains, it may be more financially prudent to wait for 09 November (when that CD also releases) to place your order for both, as that would cost $17.00 (plus $18.00 for both CDs – a grand total of $35.00) shipping where separately it would be $26.00 for shipping alone, and $44.00 including the price of the CDs themselves.
Shipping may be slightly delayed due to the US holiday of Columbus day also falling on this date.
Apologies for all this technical crap, and for the shipping increases.
