Help us release our first full length album, "Sinker", on vinyl.

Hello everyone. We're Failures' Union from Buffalo, NY. In 2007 we wrote and recorded our first full length record. We named it "Sinker." One Percent Press released the album as a CD. We always wanted to put it out as an LP as well, but since we were never a full-time band and lacked the funding, the timing never seemed right.

Over the past year things have changed, and the band has become a priority for the members. Paper & Plastick released our new album "In What Way." We also have been touring a lot more, and are even going to be heading to the United Kingdom for two weeks in the spring to play. Now we want to put "Sinker" out on vinyl more than ever, but we need your help.

We are going to be pressing the LP at Pirates Press to ensure a quality product, and the project will cost a little over $2500. We are hoping to raise $2000 for the project with your generous help, and we will pay for the rest out of our pocket.

The money you donate will not go unrewarded: in return you will get a bunch of neat stuff. If you can only donate a little, it will basically be like you're pre-ordering the LP. The more you donate, the crazier the return. You can have Tony write and record a song especially for you. If you're a big spender we'll even re-record the vocals to the album and send you a special, one-of-a-kind version of "Sinker" where all of the lyrical content is about you.

We have everything ready to be sent to the pressing plant; all we need is your contribution. Please help us out, and make us very happy people.

    Things are starting to get ridiculous. If you pledge $100, Tony will write and record a song specially for you. The song can be about you, or any topic that you choose (well as long as it's not too offensive). If you don't want him to write a song for you, you could also choose to have him cover a song of your choice. Also included are the SINKER LP and digital download.

    For those who dare to dream, and have a ridiculous surplus of money, Tony will rewrite and record all of the vocals to SINKER and make them about you. We'll send you a CD version of the album with the new vocals, and you will have a one of a kind thing. We'll still send you the LP version, but I mean when would you ever need to listen to that when you have this new masterpiece?
