1 Year Anniversary of Farewell, Doomed Planet!

One year ago yesterday I self-released Farewell, Doomed Planet!. I’ve had a lot of great response to the album.

I’ve embedded an image of the report below, or you can download as a PDF here.

In celebration, here are some download codes for the album. You can redeem them at Bandcamp:
