Severed Fifth’s ‘Nightmares By Design’ Release Date Set

As some of you will know, I have a Free Culture metal band called Severed Fifth, and recently I have been working hard recording the new album, titled Nightmares By Design. Well, I am pleased to announce that the new album will be released on Mon 11th October 2010 (the day after the Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat release!). The album will be available on that day at and available for free in full, and licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license. The new album is far more accessible and diverse, it features 11 tracks and weighs in at around 54 minutes. I am really proud of it. :-)

In addition to the new album, we are getting ready for our very first Severed Fifth show on Fri 1st Oct 2010 at Pine Street Sports Bar and Grill, 875 Rincon Avenue (@ Pine Street), Livermore, CA 94551 – things have been going really well and we have been rehearsing hard on a 2 – 3 times a week rehearsal schedule to get the live set absolutely solid.

There has also been a bunch of other Severed Fifth updates:

With Severed Fifth a full Free Culture band, we have set up the Severed Fifth Fair Pay system in which fans can help support the band, and that page now has an introductory video that explains how it works.

Finally, be sure to join our community and be a part of the Severed Fifth Street Team!

    Hi, I tried to donate something using the fair pay button on the website. but paypal wants shipping charges ($10)? Why that? Maybe you have to label it as service not as product? best enaut

    Very good. I like your way thinking about the music business and promoting your band. Using “Fair Pay” makes you likable so I’m going to blog about Severed Fifth in order to make you more popular (probably when the album is released). There should be more bands like yours.

    Best regards from Germany :)

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
