When I commented on yet another delay he said I should concentrate on the song snippets he had put up. He didn't like me telling him he should have concentrated on issuing it when he said and stop coming up with more excuses and then told me if that's how I feel his songs weren't for me. Despite the fact that I have bought everything he's ever done. Not the best way to treat fans but I live and learn.

Finally the news I have been waiting for, I could have asked for a refund like others did but I would have ended up buying the vinyl & cd when it was released so it seemed pointless doing that.

I'm glad the first UK single will be How can you stand there and not the US

single The One and only, both songs are good but I prefer the UK choice.

It's been a very, very, very long wait but It's nearly over now Smile


Hi everyone,

After a number of meetings with the record label and Pledge, we now have a release date!

Thrilled with the way the tracks have turned out, the label wants to go for a simultaneous worldwide release of CD and Vinyl.

However, this cannot be achieved till Aug 25th, so we have discussed a few things to keep you happy till then.

You will get download of album Aug 22nd, and we will send you downloads of all singles and remixes that come out before then, a day or so before the release date. We also have a recent concert video that we shall put on the Pledge page exclusively.

Looks like first US single is the One and the only, with How can you stand there for UK. Here’s a short video of the last few bits of recording in the studio, and a 30 sec snippet of the those two songs, which will be mixed and mastered when we get back off tour in April.

If this date is too late for anyone, you are still more than welcome to a refund, just let us know. Long time coming, and a heck of a lot of work and waiting, but well worth it, thanks for your help, support and patience.

Love,

Dave

Just read a post on the discussion board that release has now been put back to January next year, it's become such a debacle that you have to laugh. Very Happy

I wonder if this latest delay will be down to the mischievous Ranking Roger, will be interesting to see what Dave's excuse is for this delay.

here is a post on the discussion board:

I spoke with Dave this past weekend and he said the new album was being picked up by a major label who want to release it in January, 2018 as Mark says above. He did imply that they wanted to release some dance tracks and a Christmas single. I got to hear some of the tracks and they were great.

Seems a little late in the day to be switching labels for the release, this smells a bit fishy to me along the lines of blaming the delay on Ranking Roger last year, another in a long line of excuses, will this album ever see the light of day?

I honestly can't believe that people are still holding out for this album. If anyone still has money in it at this stage they should take the offer up of a refund.

I admire your loyalty, but had it been me I would have asked for money back after about 3 months if there has been nothing to show for it.

My dip into PledgeMusic began and ended with Rhoda's Bodysnatchers' album. Never again.

The whole thing has become a joke at this point and the strange thing is when the album is eventually released it will be available in record shops for anybody to buy without ever going near Pledge Laughing
