Why pre-order? It helps us defer manufacturing costs for the first batch of CDs. We are going DIY (Do It Yourself) with our physical merchandise distribution to help keep costs down for you, our fans.
Getting involved in self-distribution requires the purchase of some equipment for pressing high quality t-shirts and making high quality stickers and posters. Those things that aren't cost-effective to do, such as pressing glass masters of our CD and retail-quality replication of the CD will be covered by American businesses that offer such services.
So, help us out and pre-order Carousel! We won't forget it!
