Celldweller – Wish Upon A Blackstar #4

25th May 11 (Wed) Leave a comment

Celldweller’s 4th installment of Wish Upon A Blackstar comes out June 28th.  The artwork was just released yesterday… dark and fiery like the last three issues (1-2-3), and the first to show Klayton/Celldweller on the cover.  More details about its release when pre-ordering goes live.

The 5th installment should hit in late 2011.  Two years in the making.  Slow and steady must be Klayton’s motto.

15th Jul 10 (Thu) 3 comments

The pre-order for Celldweller‘s Wish Upon a Blackstar: Chapter 3 went live yesterday. The third chapter (of five total) will feature the songs “The Lucky One” and “Tainted.”

Chapter 3 will be available for download in several bundles (including a deluxe edition for $4.99) on July 27th from Celldweller’s FiXT store. The deluxe edition features instrumentals, demos, and commentaries.

After all five chapters are released, I expect there will be a full-length album (and hopefully CD) issue.

12th Aug 09 (Wed) 1 comment

So, I’d have posted about this sooner (Monday), but I’m less enthused about it, as Sufjan Stevens is not making his way out of the East & Midwest… this were one of those times, I wish I lived in Cincinnati, as I’d hit 2-3 of these shows…

Oh, but wait, there’s a Portland date!!!

Damn… Portland, Maine… not Oregon… :(

So, the other news…

Information on Celldweller‘s next album, Wish Upon a Blackstar, is being leaked purposefully by Klayton himself.  Here’s the album cover for Chapter 1

Over on Klayton’s blog, you can listen to a streaming sample of “Hit Me.”  I like the cover.  It kinda of reminds me of this, though…
