India’s Skyharbor has issued the following statement about pushing back the release of the band’s new album:
“Hi everyone, Keshav here. There is some news about Skyharbor that I feel I need to let you all in on. Please read carefully and thoroughly!
“Literally just a few days ago, we were presented with an unprecedented opportunity, one that is almost unheard of for a band from India, and has certainly never been offered to one that is yet to have either its debut album or concert done. This opportunity is so great that I simply could not pass it up, for the long term future and prospects of Skyharbor as a band.
“However, this does mean that our debut album will have to be delayed yet again by a few weeks. I’m very much aware how eagerly all of you are anticipating this release, and I’ve braced myself for the inevitable backlash that will occur due to this news, especially as it is just days away from the 20th. But I am very confident of one thing – when we are able to reveal the exact nature of what has happened (which will be in a matter of days), you will ALL be very happy, delighted even – our Indian fans because of the nature of the opportunity and what it means for our scene, and our overseas fans because we will now be much more accessible to you!
“What this also means is that we will not be selling the album, CD or digital, at the NH7 Weekender festival (which we are still playing BTW), like we had originally planned – but again, this is only because there will be a much better product coming now.
“I hope that you guys will be understanding and will continue to support us at what is now a very critical moment in our career as a band. In the meantime, please do come out to our show at the NH7 Weekender at 3PM on the 20th, where we will still be playing almost all of the album live! I promise to have more information for you in the coming days.”
