Amalgama Comments On Release Of New EP "Amethyst"

New York's Amalgama has checked in with the following update about the release of the new EP "Amethyst:"

"A hello from the great city of Albany here in upstate New York! It's raining, which means it's officially fall. That also means that snow is just around the corner and we're all getting ready to do battle with the elements once again. One upside to the cooling (OMG global climate change!1!!11!) is that our rehearsal space, normally sweltering, has become more tolerable to be in for extended periods of time.

"You know what else is here? Yes, the long awaited release of our latest EP Amethyst. The artwork went through finally tweaking, the packaging designed and formatted, and the tracks uploaded and sent off to our distributor. It's a glorious thing to see those shiny cases come out of the box and head right back out the door to our fans around the world. Querys on when it was going to be available were hitting our inbox and Facebook page pretty reliably over the last few weeks but the day has finally arrived.

"There are a multitude of locations you can get the new disc in both digital and physical format, including iTunes, CDbaby (physical copies available now!), Amazon, Napster, and even Spotify (not currently available in the US). There will be others as the weeks wear on and we'll be sure to forward them on to you.

"Last.fm user? Head over to the 'Amethyst' page and make sure you add our new tunes to your library -- this will do a lot of good for us with promotion of the EP as it tracks the number of listens it gets. iTunes (finally) has a dedicated page for all of our studio material which can be viewed here (for those who don't have our last album When the Dust Settles as well).

"As always, we want you to connect with us on Facebook and let us know what you think of the new material, especially once you get a copy of it. Take a picture of you with the new disc and send it in -- we'll add it to our website! Hell, make a macaroni picture of how the music makes you feel and sent it along our way. We're always looking for innovative ways for people to express how much Amalgama means to them.

"We're going to be filming our show this weekend and putting up selected songs on our YouTube channel (which clearly needs a new video by now). So if you haven't subscribed to our channel already, go do it! Until next time, stay metal (and enjoy Amethyst)."
