We MADE IT!!!
And when I say "We", I mean all of us!! Thank you guys SO MUCH from the bottom of our hearts. I was actually in a meeting when Henri text to tell me we did it! I was so overwhelmed that I shouted "Yes!!" in front of everyone and didnt even feel bad:)
Im most excited that we now get to dig our heels in and make this record for you! This affords us a great studio for our already great musicians. Which means the best sound we could ask for. The songs are ready, and 4 of them have already been tracked out for pre production. Its already coming together!
I want you all to know that anything over our budget will now go into our TOUR to try to make it to as many places near you as possible so that all of you amazing backers can now see what you helped create LIVE and in person.
Its impossible to make it to every city on our budget, but we will try to get to your regions (West Coast, Midwest, South and East coast in the US along with Germany, UK, and hopefully a few other European cities in 2012.
We are also doing inventory for all the donation gifts and will have them out just as soon as the deadline ends. You all deserve everything you donated for and more! In fact there may just be a special surprise in every delivery because we are so fortunate to have you:)
Lastly, I want you to know that this new record will be the best album TLOR has ever made. Promise! Its been 2 years since we have recorded a song and in that interim we have been dedicated to writing the most creative, catchy and heart felt material we can. Out of a countless number of songs, we have narrowed it down to our top 10-12 favorites to put on this record and I know that you guys will hear our heart pouring into the material.
Everyday I wake up and know that Im blessed to get the opportunity to do what I love and believe in, and I couldnt be more proud than to have you to share it with. Without you, it wouldnt be possible.
Your the best and this is a bond that we wont soon forget.
Riley and The Life of Riley

Story Tellers digital documentary of the making of the album and writing of the songs. If you have seen the show story tellers- you get it. For those who haven't, it's simple. We will video a stripped set of the new record along with footage of the making of the album. And do a story tellers session about each song. How it was written, what it's about, etc. The video will be an intimate look behind the curtain and into the souls of the band that wrote the songs. This will be one of a kind and will never be released to the public. We tend to share stories during our shows. But this will go deeper into what the songs are really about, and the process that it took to get them from our hearts to paper and onto a CD. We may even cover some old material:)Estimated delivery:
