    I messaged Jeff a few months ago on Facebook, asking about the release date of the soundtrack, I only just now figured it'd be nice to let other people know since a lot of people seem to ask. Screenshot.

    You photoshopped it didn't you? I heard that Jeff refrained from giving the date at a PAX East since he wasn't sure when to release it.

    Ok nvm from a post I saw from Jeff on FB:


    "

    It was a mistake to ever announce a release date for the RWBY Vol 4 Soundtrack, and I'll never make that mistake again, I promise. That date wasn't ok'ed by RT, and they had a different plan than me. So yeah, my fault, I take the blame.

    It's not on iTunes today, it won't be there tomorrow, it won't be there the next day. I don't have an exact date, and even if I did, I wouldn't state it. Once it's available, we will scream it from the rooftops and you'll be the first to know.

    No one wants the soundtrack in your hands more than I do, and your support and enthusiasm are what have made everything happen in the past and will continue to make it happen in the future.

    I don't feel that I need to spell out excuses for you, but I will tell you this-I had an accident and took a pretty serious injury to a finger on my right hand earlier in April. Yup, worst possible timing. Couldn't play, couldn't use the mouse very well. And I had to get a tetanus shot while I was already getting over a cold and so that actually wiped me out. It's been...ummm...awful, to be honest.

    There was an upside to this, though. While I was slowed down, I wrote another song. Brand new song, something you've not heard at all, and I think you will love it. It gave me a chance to bring back something that was in Vol 2 that there wasn't much of on Vol 3-something really joyful and cute. So, I guess that's a bit of a silver-lining.

    The songs have all seen serious development since they were first heard during the season. I believe you will be really pleasantly surprised at how these full songs turned out.

    We also approached the way we present the Score differently, based on feedback that we've taken from you all. We've often seen people wishing that the score wasn't always presented as a single song for each Chapter. So, we broke them down a bit smaller this time. So if you want to her something like the fight music from part of a chapter, it's more likely presented as it's own three minute song than as part of an eight minute song. There are 45 tracks on the album and it's close to 3 hours of music.

    Today was my millionth birthday, and I want to thank you. I received so many kind sweet messages from the RT/RWBY family. Having the new album available for purchase today was kind of supposed to be my birthday present to myself haha. Oh well. I got a pretty fancy cake, so that's cool too.

    Based on the post, it sounds like it will be released in June alongside the DVD/Blu-Ray.

    I didn't troll or photoshop it, I just went from what I was told back in February. A Messenger screenshot, since they're harder to fake

    Can you link me any sites that Jeff makes posts on? I like to see what he says for myself, but have no idea which sites he uses.
