MLC returns to the studio with some new talented members and some incredible new songs! We have been growing and evolving over 16 years and the band is sounding better than ever. We promise that this album will bring the "Rock and Roll" you've come to expect and love from MLC!

We are thrilled to finally announce that we will be recording the album in the world-famous Chicago Recording Company (www.chicagorecording.com), home of many classic albums from artists like Michael Jackson, Survivor, Smashing Pumpkins, and others.

We're asking you to help us fund the project because we know that MLC fans are the best. There are plenty of sponsor level options with some super cool perks for those of you who are willing to jump in with us!

We're hoping to release the album next spring. Follow the website or Facebook for more details of the CD release Party - if we raise money over our goal, that will go towards the release and associated (to-be- named) benefit party.

Here's a sample of the tunes!
