Solid Faces CD album sales temporary stopped. April, 2013

Update 2013-04-06:

The batch of CD albums received were defect at the end of last song (5:52). Sales are temporary stopped until we got it straightened out and received a new print of CD’s.

So please be patient and stay tuned until then!!

We are very sorry for this inconvenience and everyone who bought the disc can return or replace the CD for free when the new shipment arrives.

This is the price we had to pay for being too impatiens and trying to force the process faster than necessary.

Right now it’s not fun at all but maybe after a month or so we can laugh about this…

“Hey! SF sells Classic Hard Rock CD albums with authentic 70’s LP emulation, damage on the last song so it makes the classic repetitions that scratchy vinyl records can have”.

Update info:

All CD’s now returned to CD plant and we will receive a new shipment with CD’s ASAP.

There was a couple of faulty CD’s that we were unable to trace, they can still be exchanged until August 2013.

Hmmm… or… first print and faulty… maybe it is a collector’s item… 😉


Initial release 2013-04-05:

Solid Faces releases 2013-04-05 their first CD album entitled “A Tribute to Classic Rock”.


Solid Faces new lineup. July 4, 2010

There has been a change in lead vocals.

In July 3 Marko officially announced the band members that he was leaving the band.

Sven contacted his old friend and vocalist Johan Mattjus (Stormwing, Altaria) to join forces. Johan decided to join the band with this very short notice July 4.

A new chapter has begun and Solid Faces welcomes Johan as the new lead vocalist in the band!
