will it be under the name "mark august"?

any chance of a preview?

we put our first rec out about 6 months ago, our label only made 500 copies and sold them all. as you probly know, there's no money in it whatsoever at this level but it's not about the money :wink:

promote yourself as much as you can without bein a dick and try sell as many as you can. that way you'll get another release.

:cough:
new voltaic release due soon
:cough:
