We are very excited to make our long overdue second album. Help us get back into the studio so we can get some new music in your hands!

The time has come! Our band is more polished and ready to go than we have been at any other time in our career. Our material is at its best and we want to get it on a record ASAP! Help us reach (or exceed!) our goal!

This past winter, we recorded our new single, “Spare Me Eliza,” with a major producer named “Machine.” It was one of several prizes awarded to our band when we won the “Your Shot to Rock” competition hosted by NYC-based radio station 101.9 WRXP last summer. Unfortunately, the station was bought, sold and shut down just one week after we won and we were unable to take part in most of the prizes we were awarded. But we did make the most of our recording session with Machine and now we have this one great sounding track that will be on our upcoming record! 

Here’s where YOU come in. In order to get back into the studio and produce another 10-12 tracks that will live up to the production quality of our new single, we need to put up a pretty big chunk o’ change, at least $8,000. We’re confident we are going to make a killer record, but we need to do it the right way: with a great producer, in a great studio, and in a few months, rather than a few years. 

It’s very important to point out that if we do not reach our goal of $8,000 we will not get any of your contributions. You won’t be charged and we won’t be going to the studio. None of us believe that will be the case, but we want to let you know upfront how important it is that we reach out goal. 

What happens if we are lucky enough to exceed our goal? Don’t worry, we won’t be lining our own pockets with your hard earned money. Every dollar we receive will be spent on the album’s production and promotion. In addition to recording, mixing, and mastering the tracks, we’ll also need to produce physical CDs, promote the album, as well as take care of getting all of our backers their rewards. The total cost of the production plus all of the ongoing promotion may exceed our $8,000 goal and any extra support will be put to good use (and is greatly appreciated!!!). 

What will you get in return? As with all Kickstarter campaigns, we have some great rewards at various pledge levels. They’re all listed here on the right side of the page. Check ‘em out and see which pledge level is right for you! 

We see ourselves going in to the studio to record this album and coming out with something really great. Something that will stand the test of time, something everyone can appreciate. Please help us make our dreams and goals a reality. You have the power. 

 Go to it!
