This will be SLIDE's 4th studio album. We have the material so now it's time to get the ball rolling.
Hello SLIDE fans,
We are embarking on a new project; our 4th studio album.
We have always maintained the control and ownership of our music down through the years. You can enable us to continue in this vein by acting as our record label and support this album so that we can make the music we love in our own way.
How this works:
You commit to our album in advance by buying one of the 'incentives' on the right of this page. You can specify details such as t-shirt sizes etc. once the project crosses the finish line. We have tried to make the incentives a personal and unique experience so that you may enjoy the band in a new way and also allow us to achieve our goal.
We look forward to seeing you on our travels for the rest of 2012 and also to bringing you new music.
From Éamonn, Daire, Aogán, Mick and Dave,
Thank you :o)
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.

Sit in on the recording of one of our tracks in the studio in Columbus, Ohio. This will be the setting for what Mick and Dave put together before sending over to Eamonn, Aogan and Daire. It will also be where Mick and Dave throw down bouzouki, mandolin and other strings on what the lads send over from Ireland. It is a kind of magic time as the music that goes down will decide how the track is to sound for evermore. If this is something you would like to witness first-hand then we'd love to have you along. The entire day (usually about eight hours) will be made available to you. You just pick when and away we go.Estimated delivery: Feb 2013

This lucky pledger will get a Michael Vignole bodhran, of Claddagh, Co. Galway, belonging to Dave Curley. Dave was a lot younger (but only a little bit shorter) when he got this bodhran as an 8 year old boy. It has seen a lot of places, from the pubs of Galway to the streets of Manila. It has also been through a lot - most notably the great flood of 2010 in Corofin which is why it now hangs up its boots. 16 inch rim, goat skin, shallow frame and with 'DC' print and Celtic design on edge of skin. Still in a playable condition but more of a collector's item PLUS a signed copy of the new CD AND a SLIDE t-shirt.Estimated delivery: Mar 2013
