TOS have completed recording their new album AMERICAN STRANGER but need your help to master it!

NEW UPDATE:
10/25/10
We've reached our $1000 extended goal and couldn't be more appreciative! As a result, in addition to your current donation reward, all of our Kickstarters will receive "Scraps": an extremely rare collection of B-Sides, Alternate Versions, and Unreleased Tracks spanning the last 4 years. We hope "Scraps" will give you an extra special glimpse into what we've been up to.

It looks like we've got the audio portion accomplished, but we still need to press it. This expense will cost us around another $1000 with art and legal fees figured in. Keep in mind, the better this fundraiser does, the sooner we can release "American Stranger".

If we are fortunate enough to reach $1500 by our Nov 17th deadline, we will host an interactive U-Stream concert of "American Stranger" in its entirety. Hell, we'll even take requests too...

Please take a couple of minutes and check out the video. If you've donated or can't donate, please pass this event or the Kickstarter link along to some good music fans!

We still need your help!

Hello everyone, thanks for checking out The Only Sons' Kickstarter!

We met our meager goal of $500 within about 4 hours of launching the project and were shocked at how quickly the donations came in. As a result, we will be updating the Kickstarter page soon with NEW REWARDS to help extend our target to $1000. We still have to take care of artwork, legal fees, and most importantly PRESSING, so every donation makes a BIG difference!

*If you aren't that familiar with The Only Sons, download our 2009 album "Steel Hearts" COMPLETELY FOR FREE from the BandPage tab at:

Thank you all so much.
Let's keep this going!
We still need your help!

A quick back story of the project:

We just finished recording our third album in three years, "AMERICAN STRANGER", a couple of weeks ago with most of the recording taking place in Rockvale, Tennessee in the church next door to our house. Our Bassist Jonathan's mother is a pastor there and allowed the band to live in the parsonage. Works out well.

"AMERICAN STRANGER" was recorded by our good friend and long-time engineer, Mikey Allred ("Young Lungs" in 2008 and "Steel Hearts" in 2009) and produced by Joey Kneiser of Glossary. Mikey is currently in the process of mixing the record and then it's on to mastering...

That's where you come in!

The recording and mixing process has stretched us a little thin and we are coming up short. The plan is simple. We want the mastering session to be done by Lake Fever Productions in Nashville, TN (http://www.lakefeverproductions.com/). This will run us 500 bucks and we absolutely need your help to reach our goal. It's important to note that if we DON'T make our goal, we don't get anything, and you will NOT be charged.

Any size donation will help us reach our goal. Be sure to look at all the rewards we have to offer for pledging a donation. Thank you so much for your time and support! Seriously.
