Hey there friends!
Exciting news for you all! The record is being mixed! That means it is so much closer to hitting your ears. I wanted to let you in on a little secret though. We just found out that we will be performing at SXSW in Austin, TX this year. If you are unaware, this is a very, VERY large music festival that is a great opportunity.
We just had a company named Ditto Music, a highly respected company in the music biz, ask us to be a part of one of their showcases. To land this spot, we have to have you vote for us though.
So we made this video:
And surprise for you, in this video there is a new song from the new record! Now, I didn't want to give away all of the surprises, so it is missing my vocal track. But you can get a small taste of the song.
Not long now everyone! Cheers!
How ya'll doin' today?
Wanted to send out a quick studio update, to keep you informed. Also, we have some fantastic news for you! There is an end in sight for the making of this record, and it is very near.
While we have enjoyed being able to take our time and really expand our songwriting into new areas, an opportunity that YOU afforded to us, every project must have a deadline. We are going to officially be done with the recording of our record by January 7th! Now, to be clear, we still have to go about the process of getting the record mixed and mastered, two of the most crucial elements in the process. And then there's the debate of figuring out how to release it, but that will all go by very quickly and before you know it, you will have a record in your hand and a song (or many) in your hearts.
Thank you all for your patience. You've been unbelievable. We've thrown in some studio pics and vids for you all to see. These are from a few days ago.
not long now!

Hello our most prized and beloved fans!
Obviously, it's been too long since we updated you on the progress of our record that YOU funded. So we made you a video. By sending this update, we do so solemnly swear to send you more studio updates and video blogs to keep you up to speed on the progress, because we want you to know your money really is going to our record.
We appreciate YOU and your support!

WE DID IT! Honestly, we are absolutely blown away here in the VINYL THIEF camp. From the bottom of our hearts, we truly appreciate every dollar and cent that you all donated to help us reach our goal.
Let me tell you what we’re doing now!
We have finished the basic tracking for the full length. I’d say we are about 50% of the way done with the record. There are some songs that I think are already quite delightful, and others that are downright dirty, and we’re working extremely hard to make the best songs you’ve ever invested in.
I promise you, your funds will be treated with care, and your packages delivered without wear. We’re already beginning the process of prepping the acoustic EP and theme songs while we also continue to work vigorously on the album.
Thanks again for your help. We feel blessed that you respect us and believe in us, and we will work ever so hard to bring you the best art we possibly can.
