Hello to all of our backers!
As a final thank-you to you, and to anyone who has supported us over the past 45 days, we are going to be performing a live show tomorrow night from a living room! The show will run from about 6-7 PM (PST).
Make sure to tune in to our Facebook page or the Livestream URL we provide to catch the show. We'll be taking requests, telling stories about the recording of our new record, and we'll also be giving away a record player!
Thanks for everything.
Love - Barcelona
We are nearing the end of our Kickstarter campaign and have just a little ways left to go. We need your help to reach our new goal of 40k so we can purchase a new van to get to all your beautiful faces around the country. As a thank you, we will record an acoustic EP of old and new songs.
Also, as an additional thank you, we are planning to perform a Livestream concert for everyone this coming Thursday (Sept. 22). We will play for around an hour and take requests via Facebook or Twitter. We'll also be giving away a record player! Live! Stay tuned for details!
Thanks to all 389+ of you for throwing down and supporting this new record. Brian, Brian, Chris and I are so thrilled and cannot express how grateful we are to have your support.
In our last update, we mentioned selecting one lucky winner to receive a small token of our appreciation -- an iPod Shuffle with all our music every recorded! We're talking demos from our days practicing at Puget Systems back in '06 (where Chris works), to some or our more recent live recordings from the Triple Door in Seattle. It will definitely be a listening smorgasbord, but fun none the less.
We'll be sharing some more giveaways with you in the coming days so please stay tuned.
Can I get a drum roll please........We're now happy to announce that.......
We reached our goal people!!!!! As usual, we cannot express enough gratitude. Since we still have plenty of time left in our KS campaign, we decided to pick a new goal to help us get a new (reliable) van! In exchange for reaching this goal, we are going to record an acoustic EP and give it away to everyone who has participated in the fundraiser. The coolest part about this is that YOU pick the songs!
Also, at midnight this coming Friday (Sept. 2) we are going to randomly pick someone who has donated at level C and higher, and giveaway an iPod shuffle with every song we've ever recorded on it! Here's a little video update to fill you in on all of this.
