Greetings friends, family, and fans!
It has been a few short months since we shipped Symmetry, and once again we'd like to thank you all for making it such a success and we hope you are enjoying your copies of the album. Since the Kickstarter campaign ended, Symmetry has shipped in 8 countries and to nearly every part of the United States and Canada. We have put courtesy copies in the hands of numerous DJs and are receiving radio play from coast to coast. If you would like us to send a copy to a radio station or music publication in your area, no matter where you are in the world, please let us know!
With all of the hard work we put into Symmetry you might think we would take a break afterward, but that is not the case! Even before Symmetry's official release we were already working on our next project, stealthily referred to as "SM III". It is this project that we are excited to announce to you today, and this time it is more than an album, but a full length feature film:
Silver Machine: Night of the Living Dead.
(more info after the break)
It has been no secret that we travel through space, but as it turns out, we exist outside of time as well. We went back to 1968 and recorded the soundtrack to George Romero's zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead. We will be releasing this on DVD and as a digital download on this Fall, but in order to avoid a potentially Universe-erasing paradox, we must once again call on your help to share this work with the people of Earth.
Though we have switched fundraising platforms, the campaign is the same as last time: we have 30 days to raise $1,400 to cover the very basic production expenses associated with putting this film into print. Just as with Symmetry, there are a host of exciting pledge rewards (including a 5CD box set that actually contains 6 CDs!), and we had a lot of fun putting together a pitch video and theatrical trailer that we hope you will find entertaining. If we reach our goal, then we will be able to publish this movie exactly as we had envisioned it. If we surpass our goal, we will do just as we did with Symmetry and spend all of our earnings on our supporters.
We can't tell you how excited we are to finally be bringing this project to fruition. While the project itself has been in the works for quite some time, all of the music is brand new and was written specifically for the film. Night of the Living Dead will ship on DVD October 1st so that you can receive your copy in time for Halloween festivities. Digital downloads will be available even earlier. We hope you enjoy the promotional video, please help us spread the word and share it with your friends!
