Fox Elipsus: "The Road" is now released :D <3Posted on June 4, 2011
"Freedom of thought is the one thing tyrants fear
Because it is the one thing they can never truly control"
And you know what? It's working... someone told me that. And they were right. It's working. Don't give up! Don't lose hope... together, we're capable of so much... so much bad, but so, so much good... I still believe. I hope you do too. If you don't, you soon will :D <3
JUNE IS HERE! :) AND SO IS MY 3RD CD AT LAST! OUT TODAY!
It's been awhile since you heard from me... but summer is coming, my new album is released TODAY, and my first ever European tour begins next month! I miss you and would love to hear from you - I answer all of my personal emails (especially when I am in the studio, like now!) but only to the address: ELIPSUS@GMAIL.COM so please write to me there! But we have an album release to deal with!
"THE ROAD" ONLY $10 NOW AT HTTP://WWW.ELIPSUS.NET
Finally! One year and three weeks after it was completed, "The Road" is released! Eight hours ago, my 3rd double-CD with 40 tracks on 2 discs about peace, love, humanity, the environment, and of course, some silly comedy too, went on sale for only $10 on http://www.elipsus.net - and if you happen to stop by and pick up your copy this weekend (before Midnight on Sunday), it will be personally signed by me, because I happen to be at the studio right now and will be mailing them out myself!
You can watch music videos from "The Road" on http://www.youtube.com/foxelipsus and let me know what you think! If you don't have them yet, don't forget to pick up the first 2 CDs as well, while you're there, to complete the set! All CDs are $10 :D All proceeds are being used to manufacture the upcoming 4th CD, and to fund the first ever tour of Europe (beginning July 28th in my hometown of Oxford, England), and next year's massive North American tour (April to December 2012).

As you know, I sleep in my car when on tour, and live off CD sales and tips, so if you would like to contribute on a regular basis to keep the music alive (even a dollar or two helps!), I send out emails to my "Bed Brigade" monthly, letting them know what I need help with, and they send a little, if they can, to help towards it. If you want to receive these Bed Brigade e-mails, write to ELIPSUS@GMAIL.COM with the title BED BRIGADE. I deeply, truly, appreciate it! Also, if you are one of the 105 people who took a CD (or several CDs) at one of my 2010-2011 shows, and said you would pay me later... a lot of you never did! Please remember I am homeless and I gave you my trust. Please repay that trust by either sending the CD back, or sending the money through http://www.elipsus.net as a donation. If you can't figure it out, e-mail me!
I have a wonderful promo family (they are my best friends!) who help me spread my music around the world. All of the work is done online, and is very easy. I reward them with lots of fun chats, jokes, and candid personal pix sent to them from the road that nobody else sees! :) We really need some helping hands, even if you can only help for 15 mins a week! If you are willing to help spread the music of peace and love, then please create a gmail address (it has to be gmail! free to create at http://www.gmail.com ) and e-mail ELIPSUS@GMAIL.COM from it - if you already have one, you can use that but beware it's a lot of email, so you might want to use a new one just for Promo! I am welcoming people to the team tomorrow (Sunday), and next Sunday, so if you contact me any time in the next 8 days, you will be gladly welcomed in!
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND FRIENDS...

I hope you very much enjoy "The Road", and look forward to the July newsletter in four weeks time :D I have to admit, even though I was on the road for 12 months straight until 6 weeks ago... I miss it already! Meeting you all every night, making you laugh, inspiring you to dream as you inspire me to believe in you... it's more beautiful than words can describe. I believed in all of you before I met you, but now... now my faith in us is unshakeable. I can't wait to be back on the road! <3
I love you, and I am here to stand up for what we all believe in, somewhere deep down inside... peace, hope, truth, freedom, tolerance, and fixing our mistakes and healing our world so that what we give to the future generations is something they can be proud of, and sustain, and live in harmony with. Watch this space...
