Sorrows Path EP/Single

New EP/Single Sorrows Path will be rote mare's first official release. Recording will take place in early June with a release hopefully in July. The EP/Single will contain 2 songs (The Path, The Song Of Sorrow) and an intro. The intro has already been recorded at home based on an idea by Andrew. The Path is written by Phil. The music and chorus lyrics for The Song Of Sorrow are written by Sean with the remaining lyrics by Phil. Both songs are around 7-9 minutes in length and the intro runs about 2 minutes.
I wanted to release this in cardboard gatefold packaging but have had to change plans due to the cost of this being much higher than i expected. This CD and will be limited to a first pressing of 500 copies or less only. At the moment we are looking to sell them at around $8 each + postage.
