Dear all, we’re sorry to send two newsletters in as many days, but it’s come to our attention that we left out a very important piece of information in yesterday’s announcement about the new Wovenhand book, Black of the Ink. Please note that Sounds Familyre is distributing Black of the Ink to North America only. If you’re ordering outside of North America, please go to the good people at Glitterhouse Records.

Thanks much, dear people. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Wednesday.


Everyone at Sounds Familyre
