Ghost Ship Octavius is ready to record their second album, and returning to you, the friends and fans of the music, to help make it happen. Through pre-ordering the record, you can contribute to it's creation and become part of the process. All of the funds raised through pre-orders will go towards recording and production of the album and perks.

The album will be recorded, produced, mixed and mastered once again by Aaron Smith here in our hometown of Seattle, Washington, USA.

All of the raised funds will go to the production, manufacturing and fulfillment and delivery of the items or services pledged for. Since everything went so well the first time, we will be sticking with the same team of people to once again bring you the best products and creative ideas we can possibly create!

We are so excited to come together will all of you again to bring this story, imagery and music to life. We believe that this is going to be a special album and we are so happy to have you all along for the ride! Cheers!

Here is a new pre-production single from the upcoming record!

Risks and challenges

A large risk in raising funds for this record is that it is all or nothing. That is to say, if we fall short of our goal, we will not be able to record it. We have great confidence in you, the fans and supporters of GSO to once again come together and make this new album into a glorious reality!

Our first Kickstarter Campaign was a great success and we have learned how to make this one and the album and merchandise even greater than the first! Let's do this together!

But if you're a semi-moron, and can stare into this amazing piece of art that tells part of the story of the Ghost Ship Octavius journey from the new album then this is the piece for you!
