Illusion of Joy’s fourth full-length album, No One Expects An Inquisition will be getting a proper launch on Friday, November 18th, 7:00PM at Cannon Coffee in Pittsburgh’s Brookline neighbourhood. This homecoming show is the fourth in a line of upcoming performances where Inquisition is being played in it’s entirety. Here’s the updated schedule:
|Thursday, October 27th – 7:30PM||Hurley’s – Potsdam, NY||Free to students/$3 at door; all ages|
|Saturday, November 12th – 8:00PM||The Shop – Ithaca, NY||Free; all ages|
|Sunday, November 13th – 3:00PM||Moon & River Café – Schenectady, NY||Free; all ages|
|Friday, November 18th – 7:00PM||Cannon Coffee – Pittsburgh, PA||Free; all ages|
In addition, while the official release date for No One Expects An Inquisition remains Tuesday, November 8th, the album is already available for purchase on illusionofjoy.net. The official release date applies to purchases made through CD Baby, iTunes and more discriminating brick and mortar retailers. November 8th is also the date that discriminating college and community radio stations should add Inquisition to their playlists.
One might ask why this album is available for purchase – and yes, it is an actual purchase, not a pre-order – in advance of it’s “official” release date. The answer is simple: in this age where information is immediate and a digital download is a click away, it makes no sense for an independent musician to sit on a product that has already been manufactured. As such, the merch section of illusionofjoy.net was updated to contain Inquisition and it’s associated schwag within hours of the shipment from Sire Press being received.
