        2013 Salt Lake City Weekly Band of the Year

The writing phase for the new L'anarchiste [LAN-AR-SHEEST] record is over and we have an incredible bunch of songs on our hands! We are working with some amazingly talented people on our record, which will be recorded at June Audio Recording Studios with producer Nate Pyfer (Kaskade, The Moth & The Flame) and engineer Scott Wiley (Neon Trees, Phoenix). We need your help to realize our dream of releasing this album and doing it in the absolute best way possible!

This all started in Rob's basement over two years ago when he got a simple condenser mic and an audio interface to record some songs for himself. He showed his family and friends and it was so well received that he decided to put a band together. Since then we've had an amazing year and a half as a band and we want to keep it going!

We were first featured on the Choose My Music (UK) blog, which led to playing at SXSW (South by Southwest music festival in Austin, TX) and since have had the opportunity to open for amazing bands such as Here We Go Magic, mewithoutYou, Ramona Falls, and Ivan & Alyosha. We've had an appearance on RadioWest, had a song featured on NPR's All Songs Considered, and even had a song played on MTV.

We've been writing and recording a lot of songs and we're happy to report that this process is nearly done. We'd love for you to be a part of this exciting process!

We've worked hard to come up with rewards to suit everyone, including digital and physical copies, exclusive t-shirts and posters, custom artwork, guest list for life, private concerts and even a day-long recording workshop.

Not only do we have a full-length album coming out, but we also have another bonus EP full of brand new songs and many other exciting rewards as a thank you for supporting us!

More than anything, we couldn't do any of this without you. Thank you so much for your continued support and love. We look forward to making all of this with you!

Your friends,

Rob, Grant, Morgan, Erich, Alex & Jacob

Risks and challenges
