Approved for: GENERAL RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION UNLIMITED
UPDATE: Due to a critical bug in Byzantium Linux v0.1a, a file containing the mesh routing and application software was omitted from the .iso image. The code which makes Byzantium, well, Byzantium isn't there. To fix this, please re-download the .iso image from one of the mirrors linked below and try again. We humbly apologize for our screwup. QA processes are being put in place to ensure that this never happens again.
Project Byzantium, a working group of HacDC (http://hacdc.org/) is proud to announce the release of v0.1 …
It's official - the new release from Information Society, entitled Synthesizer will be released for general sale the first week of October, 2007. However, there is a limited edition of the album available right now, and like before there are only 1000 copies being made. Once they're gone, they're gone, and you'll have to wait two more months before you can buy it.
Even though the Cruxshadows are still on tour, they've been hatching plans while on the road to release another single from their latest album, Dreamcypher. Specifically, they'll be releasing a couple of remixes of the song Birthday along with some new (and some live-only) material on 4 September 2007 through Isotank Records - you can preorder it from here. Frankly, part of me isn't surprised that they announced it yesterday, which just happened to be the birthday of their frontman Rogue. In a weird, strange, "Am I doing enough in this lifetime?" kind of way, it works.
Todd over at A Different Drum has announced that he's taking pre-orders for the new Information Society Single, Oscillator (the announcement was made on the band's website today). Paul Robb of InSoc has stated that only 500 copies of their new CD-5 will be made - half will be sold through ADD, the other half will be sold at live shows. It's already hit #7 on ADD's sales charts, and the announcement only went out yesterday at 1200 EST5EDT. The official release date of the disk has not yet been announced, though when it is I'll post ASAP.
