Fire in the Hamptons have a new album in the works. You can help us share the music with the world.

About this project

We are Fire in the Hamptons. We make music. We've independently released one record and we're in the process of creating a new one. Here's the catch- making a record isn't cheap. We have to face steep expenses associated with recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing and distribution... and this doesn't include the marketing costs that go along with publicity, touring, etc.  This is where you come in... Every dime we earn through Kickstarter will go directly towards the creation and promotion of the new record. We want to share our music with the world, and we need your help to spread the fire (pun intended). A contribution to our Kickstarter gives you honorary street-cred for life and a seat next to us, on team FITH… without that whole starvation thing. 

We’re not asking for handouts, which is attested by our Kickstarter packages.  Even at the most modest level, we’re offering something exciting and exclusive. From advance music downloads, to a featured role in a music video.  We really want you to feel involved and rewarded for your contribution. Luckily for us, we have a vast amount of creative and talented friends who’ve volunteered their time and effort to support this campaign.  All of these items are exclusive to Kickstarter, YOU WILL BE THE ONLY ONES ON THE PLANET TO POSSESS THESE TREASURES.

Being musicians in this day and age requires an immense amount of sacrifice, patience and in most cases, starvation. It’s up to the artist to make it. The day of the traditional record label is on it’s death bed, and we’re knee-deep in a very exciting new path that will forever change the music industry as we know it. The whole concept has flipped and now we the bands, the fans, the concert goers, the diehard lovers of music, are in the drivers seat. The challenge is great, the stakes are high, but we must proceed onward… this is who we are… this is what we do. Well- to be honest, it’s all we know how to do. We must swallow some of that old fashioned rockstar pride associated with being a mysterious band and ask for support from our community. We ask you to sail with us along these uncharted waters.

Scott Michael Foster, handsome actor/host of the video, came into the studio and performed/co-wrote the song, “Patterns.” Here's a clip of the song, that will be exclusively released through Kickstarter:

Jeremy Swan (star of TLC’s “America’s Worst Tattoos”) and the other artists at Broken Art Tattoo in Los Angeles, have all put their paint to paper to create exclusive FITH artwork. ONLY AVAILABLE HERE!

Our good friend, Doug Dunnam, one of the most sought after leather-men in the business- creating handmade guitar straps for acts like Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, Cher, Janet Jackson, etc., will be contributing a one-of-a-kind kickstarter-exclusive handmade guitar strap to the cause. 

Our very own lead singer, Zack Arnett and drummer, Aaron Bilyeu have stepped out of the studio and put their magic to canvas, with Kickstarter exclusive art pieces, inspired by you. Limited edition prints, signed and numbered. ONLY AVAILABLE HERE!

When all is said and done this is about people coming together to support a common cause. We make music that we want to listen to and, hopefully, you want to listen to it as well.  We hope you like the new record… and we hope it inspires you to feel what we feel.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges that come with making a record - getting the mix right, finding the right sounds, choosing the best artwork, etc. Fortunately for us, we've already spent hours writing and performing our new material, finding the right partners, etc. The pieces are in place. Now we just need our fan's support to push this ship forward. We're ready and we hope you are too.
