Basically, we're trying to break even on creating this album. We want to create something more than just a bunch of songs jumbled together, we want to put together a story that people will enjoy. The point of this album, obviously, is to get people to listen to our music, but as a band, our collective goal is to change the way people look at life through this album.

We've all been working any job that we can get our hands on, but if we want to do this right, recording is going to be a bit more expensive than what we can afford. That's where you come in. With your help, we can record all of the songs that we want, and bring about something that we've put our lives into.

In September of 2013, we went into Redlight Recording in Salt Lake City, Utah to record our debut EP. This was a lot of work, and we were very pleased with the live sound and each nuance of our music. It's something that we've been very proud of, but we would like to improve on that and make it sound even better.

(The song used in our video is one of our own, which will be re-recorded and put on the album)

We would also like to give a special thanks to Diane Lee, Victor Harris, Leslie Mangum, and Ivy Skinner for their continued support in our music. 

Risks and challenges

Recording is a lot of hard work. From start to finish, we expect this album to take a month to a month and a half to finish recording. Plus around two more weeks for production of the cd's, shirts, and wristbands. We want everything to be perfect here, and it might take a few months. But because we've done this before, (recorded, that is) we've run in to some snags and now know how to handle them. We particularly had a problem with the designing aspect of production, so as a band, we got together one day and made all of the necessary adjustments to make our EP look as good as it sounds. We're in this for the music, and will do whatever it takes to make everything perfect.
