Hello everybody! I hope you guys are having a good time and holydays, today I bring you some news and some topics I want to talk about a bit, such as the copyright stuff going on with Youtube and my album.
ASTRALITY TAKEN DOWN FROM ONLINE STORES
So I've decided to take down Astrality from TuneCore, which released it to a bunch of online stores and monetized the videos on Youtube, and also monitored the usage of my tracks on Youtube (automated process that makes copyright claims). This decision was made because of 2 things, the first being that due to todays situation, I can't afford to keep the album online, and I barely made any revenue out of it, meaning it would be a loss of money that I can't really allow right now :/. And the second one being the copyright issue that's been a nightmare this last couple of months, since it's an automated process, it's not controlled by me, and some people do not know how to dispute claims, drives me crazy. I know that I'm now vulnerable to get my music stolen, but I hope that doesn't happen and I encourage you guys, if you come across an upload of my song that's not mine, a copyright claim on your video on my song but not made by me, or anything else related to that, please let me know!
Astrality will remain on Bandcamp forever, since it's the only publisher that I can really control. And of course, if I ever get more audience and the economic situation that I'm living right now calms a bit, I will submit my stuff to Spotify, iTunes, etc. again!
NEW ALBUM COMING NEXT YEAR
The "nameless" album for now is looking good so far! It has 19 songs with a lot of remastered and extended + unreleased songs so far! You guys are going to love this album, I'm aiming for at least 25 songs, and I hope it doesn't take a lot of time. There will be a teaser soon.
I hope you guys liked Bright Moves, Brave, Booty Slapper and the Terminal Series...
As for videogame albums, I don't really have those planned out yet, so more info on that next time!
