Andy D is recording his third album and needs your help! This is also the perfect opportunity to offer his fans something extra.
The time has come for Andy D to write, record, and unleash his third album. For this he will be summoning the magic and talents of Lord Midnite, Anna Vision, Caduceus Fly and the rest of his band the Weekend. When last we left our hero at the end of Songs in the Key of Magic he had escaped Ragnarock with his friends and lover aboard the trans-dimensional spaceship the Black Rainbow, now they have rocketed into the future and found a world ravaged by the effects of the apocalypse - nuclear war, famine, plague, and a faction of mutants, the last vestiges of humanity fighting a brutal war against the robot overlords. This is a world that has forgotten how to dream and dance and love. This will not stand while Andy D and his Weekend are around! Let's go party dance warriors, get your Warcries out!
Yes this is indeed a concept album, which is redundant because all albums should have a concept. I want to create the most magical album possible. The songs are almost all there; I have been writing and recording the demos for them, but I need your help to make these songs album-worthy, captured digitally in all the dark sparkling glory they can be. All funds from this campaign will go toward the recording costs of this album, including studio time and gear expenses as well as toward the rewards packages promised herein. It is a modest proposal, but I also want to take this opportunity on kickstarter to show my fans and friends how much I love and appreciate you and your support with these awesome reward packages. My goal is to feature twelve songs on this album, six of which are already in demo form. I will be touring in support of this album afterward as well and doing as much of the new material as possible at a series of album release shows.
For the five years I have been making this music and playing these shows all around the country, I have been honored to come in contact with some amazing artists. Sharing the stage with some, working on projects directly with others. Many amazing creators have helped me become what I've wanted to be by helping to realize my visions through volunteering their time and gifts-in-kind in album design and photo shoots, in remixes and song production. I want to say I'm truly grateful for these artists who have lent me their talents. I feel truly privileged to be part of this creative community and I wish to grow it even more. Maybe this campaign can aid in that goal as well! This album will be dedicated to all the friends, fans, and amazingly visionary, creative people I have met since this journey started. Your magic is real, AND I BELIEVE IN YOU!

I will be updating here as much as possible.
