I just want to know where they're at right now. Would it be so hard to post a yearly update or something? All our info comes from sources other than the band. Last we heard was that it'd be "done in three weeks" back in June. They're probably mixing but getting a raw estimate for how many tracks are nailed down so far would show that they actually care about their fans. Someone should start a petition or something.
The good thing about this debacle is that an unknown artist got exposure, the bad thing is that it only stirred up more impatience for the second album.
