Late spring 2012 brings the highly anticipated release of “The 2¢ Show,” Steam Powered Giraffe's second studio album. The 2¢ Show gives listeners a one-way ticket with the robots on-the-road through an antique America that is filled with both magic and mystery. Join Rabbit, The Spine, and The Jon as they travel to romanticized echoes of various eras. Eras such as the wild and weird west, where Jackalopes yodeled alongside singing cowboys and Giant Rattlesnakes were king. Aboard an enchanted steamboat, they head deep into a mystical south, finding Bog Spirits who boogie to twisted Zydeco tunes. From a decaying past, dieselpunk fables and crooning records melt with electric folk pop and psychedelic radiation to create the unique, yet timeless sound Steam Powered Giraffe makes.

We're kicking things off with a music video of our popular song “Honeybee,” which appears on the new album.


This new album comes out during the start of SPG's touring endeavors, which will literally take the band on the road across America! Our new songs and bits leave San Diego to head for The World Steam Expo in Dearborn, Michigan for Memorial Day Weekend in May. We hope to make a few stops on our way to and from the convention, and to continue touring up the California coast in the fall.

(For booking availability, please call (619) 971-3294 or e-mail steampoweredgiraffe@gmail.com)

Here's where we need your help so we can bring our show across America! We have to take our recently acquired tour bus on the road, and already repairs have started to set us back. With the cost of maintenance and fuel, we're in need of donations to make sure we can continue performing outside of Southern California.

To anyone who donates, we have a variety of rewards and incentives.

Spread the word, donate, and help be a part of the future of Steam Powered Giraffe!

(If you donated money previously this week before the launch of this Kickstarter project, please know you wil be receiving rewards for it!)
