Ayreon front man Arjen Lucassen has issued the following announcement about his new project Guilt Machine seeing a release through Mascot Records:

"We're pleased to announce that Arjen's new project, Guilt Machine, will be released by Mascot Records. The photo at right shows Arjen and Mascot's Ed van Zijl formalizing the happy arrangement by signing the contracts. The release date will be announced in a later update.

"We would like to formally thank everyone who submitted an audio message to the Guilt Machine project. Your response to our announcement was overwhelming! We received over 200 messages, far more than we could possibly use on the album. In the end, 19 messages were included on the album, either in between the songs or within the songs themselves. The messages -- in languages ranging from Chinese to Tagalog to French to Russian -- add just the extra personal touch that we were looking for.

"Because we know how disappointing it must have been for those whose messages weren't chosen, Arjen has put together an 8-plus-minute instrumental bonus track filled from beginning to end with as many messages as possible. Even then there wasn't room for all of the messages (that would have required a much longer song), but we've done our best to choose messages from as many people as possible.

"Stay tuned in the coming weeks for music previews and other updates about Guilt Machine!"
