Tyler Keith and The Apostles are looking to put out Black Highway, a new twelve-song album, on vinyl. You can help make it happen.
We've got a twelve-track album called Black Highway, featuring Desperate Measures, Party Lines, Shadow of a Cross (see the video above!), Don’t Look on My Dark Side, Rotten Luck, Breaking Even, Kid Twist and others. The album is recorded and mixed, ready for mastering. We've come to the sobering conclusion that if we keep trying to save up gig money to put this thing out on vinyl it will probably take us ten years. The costs of mastering, artwork, LP pressing, and jacket printing run high, so we need your help!
We're making this thing 30 days, like the Chuck Berry song. All Kickstarter money goes toward the mastering and pressing of this album. The other rewards will most likely come out of our own pockets but, hey, that's showbiz. For more on Tyler Keith and The Apostles, check out our facebook or myspace. There's a great article on Tyler in the Oxford American and check out some of TK's four-track action here.
Special thanks to J.D. Mark for recording the album and Thad Lee for making the video. In the meantime, we'll be posting updates about shows, artwork, and any Apostles happenings. Thanks a million!
