Chicago progressive metal act Outrun the Sunlight will release their second studio album entitled Terrapin on December 16 via Rogue Records America.

Terrapin will be a monumental release for the band who went from a 2 piece outfit with Austin Issac-Peters and Cody McCarthy to a full 5 piece band. With these new additions comes a growth in the bands already full and layered sound adding even more depth to the structure of the songs and a much more “live” end sound. The first single / video for Terrapin will be The Pace of Glaciers which will debut before the album’s release.

The album will be streamed in its entirety a week before its street date by Prog Sphere. The album is also a first for the band and its publisher in that it will also be a crowd funded campaign. The band and its partner want to offer OTS’s fanbase a way to get the bands release and merchandise in a way that frees them from the debit of owing its publisher through ROI. Direct marketing through a campaign lowers the production costs for the band which allows them to collect royalties a lot sooner.

The campaign was a way to help keep the band in the black with both Rogue and for the guys in the band as a working business” says Dean Martinetti, owner of Rogue Records America the bands publisher. “It’s a first for us, and if it’s successful I’d love to try it with our other bands. We want to support our artists while keeping the costs on them low, so they can get returns faster (royalties) and get more royalties for longer periods of time.

Terrapin will be available in Limited Edition Colored Vinyl (only available on the Indiegogo Campaign) and Limited Edition DIGIPAK cd as well as Digital Download. It will be worldwide on December 16th. The Indiegogo campaign starts on Friday, November 14th.
