Even though its only seven days away, you can reserve your physical copy of “Act II: The Father Of Death” today.

*As usual, we recommend the physical copy of this album, because it is the only way to get the complete experience without me coming to your house and interpretive dancing my way around your family and pets for 57 minutes. Believe me, you don’t want that. It’s super creepy. I should know… I’m the one that has to do it. For instance, I’m an incredibly huge Kate Bush fan, but I don’t know if I could handle a personal ‘in house’ interpretation of Wurthering Heights. Save yourself the awkwardness… get the physical copy. To persuade you even further, Act II comes with a 24 page booklet filled with story and excitement. Act I only had 16… that’s almost 8 more pages!

Questions some have asked about the release of Act II —
1) Q: If I PreOrder Act II this week, will I receive it on or before the 8th of Sept?
A: Absolutely not. Act II is still at the fancy pressing plant, but will be ready for mailing on the 8th. No sooner. We wish it could arrive on your doorsteps on the 8th… but we’re not wizards of magic. Our hands are tied by machines and time.

2) Q: I want the digital copy to tide me over until my physical copy comes in the mail. Where can I buy a Digital Copy of Act II on Sept. 8th?
A:  Because iTunes seems to take forever to process albums, we don’t know if they will have it available that day. However, we DO know that it will be available on on the 8th. We’ll let you know more about all this on that special day.
*SEPT.8th UPDATE*  Act II is available on iTunes and Amazon. Choose your poison.*END UPDATE*

3) Q: Hey, Commander, have you ever seen a big bear riding in the back of a pickup truck?
A: If you had asked me that question a little over a week ago, I would have slapped you right in your eye…. but time has a way of changing a man. Things are different now. I’ll never forget. Still looking for normalcy. Freedom Fries. Have you ever seen something so powerfully raw and beautiful that it sucks the tears right out of your face? I stand before you now, a new man that has seen that “something.” For me, it took the form of a Majestic Black Bear standing in the back of a pickup truck that had a Dreamcatcher hanging from the rearview. Proving a lifelong theorem of mine, that dreamcatchers can land you a pet bear…and now I’m in the unexpectedly expensive process of buying a warehouse full of dreamcatchers…not bears. If my calculations are correct, you don’t need to buy bears because one dreamcatcher is good for at least one bear. *Actual Bear to Dreamcatcher ratios may vary due to geographic location*
If you have any information on the whereabouts of said bear, please respond to this Craigslist ad that I posted.

Album Release Show Update –
For those of you that are planning on buying presale tickets to the show, but have been procrastinizing all over the place, you may want to hurry up. We just got word that it looks like a shit load of you are coming on Sept. 25th. “Atta Boy/Girl,” to the ones that have already prepared themselves. “Shame on you,” to those that haven’t. Don’t get left out in the cold.

To those of you who have been asking. Let it be known that The Protomen are NOT playing DragonCon ’09. Blame in on the rain. HOWEVER… if you are going to be there anyway, you should go watch our friends – How I Became The Bomb. Does it help you to know that their drummer helped out on Act II?

Yeah. If you are into such things, you might as well start following the shit out of us, because we may or may not be getting more deep up in it. It sorta creeps me out in a lot of ways, but it seems to be pretty powerful for quick bursts of viable information. And I know how much you love viable information.

We’ve got work to do,


p.s. – In case you haven’t heard… “Light Up The Night.”
***This is a whole song from Act II, so don’t listen if you don’t like hearing things.
