Hi there, Pants here.

We are finally ready to record our first album! 

Your donations will help us produce and manufacture a real CD filled with real music!  We're working with the famous Jeff Berkley at Berkley Sound, so you will not only be helping local, independent musicians and businesses; you'll be building the music community in San Diego.

It might not seem like much to record an album, but we want to spend our most precious years doing something we love.  If we can pull this off, it would mean we get to immortalize our feeling of being young and in love with life.

Be the belt to our pants.  And the material, and the seams, and everything.  For we would be half-nude without you.

Thank you for being part of the story we'll tell to our grandchildren, 

Soda Pants

This is us!
This is us!

***NOTE: In our video we said we wanted to produce a 6 song EP. After much consideration and your continuous encouragement, we've decided to expand this goal into a 10 song album. We would edit the video to reflect this change, but Erin's laptop was recently burgled along with our video footage. You are now watching the ONLY copy that exists. It is endangered. Be kind. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Risks and challenges

We understand that we are undertaking a huge responsibility by accepting your money. However, we are committed to putting out an amazing album, and we promise not to squander your money on drugs and alcohol.

We have calculated an extremely conservative number for the total funds we would like to raise through this project. The Kickstarter project will fund production ($5,000), mixing, mastering ($1,500), manufacturing ($1500), shirt production, and other miscellaneous costs connected to the reward packages. We would love to raise a lot more than $8,000, but we felt that it was the most reasonable goal to post.

We want to thank you again for your support. We truly appreciate the overwhelming love that you have shown us. Simply by visiting this page, you're now part of the Soda Pants Family, and we can't thank you enough <3

    Everything in the $150 package PLUS

    A 1/4 size replica of our kick drum and 5th band member Harold the Bison which we built for our first tour! This Bison is very amiable and gregarious and would perfectly compliment the decor of your rustic style beach house, town house, condo, mansion, or outhouse. The original Bison was hand crafted by the band and painted by the very talented Michael Sierks. The grass on which Harold stands in the painting was modeled after the beautiful foliage of the great plains region and the brush strokes have been compared to the hand of Renoir himself. Some internet blogs would probably be quoted as saying the artwork is "very good", if they had been asked, and that's a promise. The Bison can be seen at the end of the Kick Starter video.
