If you’re not sure what we mean by pre-ordering, or anything else about the release, please read on for the facts about what this is all about and why we’ve done it, in our full story question round up.

How did this single release come about?
We at KajaFax were constantly receiving comments and emails from fans asking us when the band were going to release something.  We took that demand to the band, they listened.

So who is promoting the single?
We are, all of us, the fans!  KajaFax submitted a detailed plan to the band to prove we had the capability to do the single justice on their behalf.

So what do KajaFax make out of this?
Financially, nothing.  We’re doing this out of enthusiasm and a love for the band.

Pre-ordering, what is it and why do it?
When you pre-order something, you pay for it now and receive it later.  Every pre-ordered single is crucial for us, they all add up to the actual release week to count towards a chart position.  We’re doing it this way to increase our chances of a achieving exactly that, a chart position.

So we get weeks of sales all in one go?
Essentially, yes.  The chart is made up of file downloads rather than sales.  Once we have our pre-order period, all of those sales are then downloaded in the release week.  That week is when we hope we’ve done enough to achieve a chart position.

When is that week?
The single becomes downloadable on June 12th 2011.  Every pre-order is downloaded then and people can still buy it and instantly download it in that week.  Sunday 19th June 2011 is the chart date of when we hope to see this single make a position.

What do I do next?
Pre-order the single NOW! and spread the word as far as you can!  It’s only 79p, cheaper than pretty much anything else you can buy!  Even asking your friends to buy one as a contribution would be incredible.

Can I buy the dance mix or the EP instead?
Yes, the single from the dance mix counts as a valid sale towards the chart.  If you buy the full EP, this also counts as a valid sales towards the chart for the single.

Can we really get this track into the charts, I mean REALLY?
That’s in our hands, REALLY!  Sales figures vary weekly, there is no hard and fast figure to give.  If we can secure sales of around 4000-5000, we can hit the Top 40.  That’s achievable, we have five weeks.  The biggest secret to making this happen are the golden words:

DON’T LEAVE BUYING IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE!!

So there we have it, hopefully everyone understands the reason for pre-ordering and is all ready to get busy buying the track!
