We need your help to fund the creation of our new record at NYC's Singing Serpent studios.

Our project will be funded only if we meet our goal before April 30!

Our Kickstarter goal of $4,500 is about 33% of the total cost of studio time, travel, and pressing our new EP on vinyl. We are going to put in 110% effort to make this our best EP yet for our fans, and we are personally funding the other 67% of costs.

We've got tons of cool rewards lined up to thank you for your generosity! You can donate as little as $1 or as much as you'd like!

If we succeed in meeting our goal your contribution will be collected through Amazon on April 30, 2012.

WHY NEW YORK CITY / SINGING SERPENT STUDIOS? We will work with producer Jeremy S.H. Griffith. Griffith produced our last EP "The Emerald Coast" which we distributed and is still available FREE at www.guiltmaker.bandcamp.com.

Griffith has previously produced Norma Jean, Sunbears, and Underoath. He is an amazing producer and musician and we are very excited to work with him again! 

REWARDS
You can donate as little as $1. We've come up with a list of reward packages and we hope you find it in your big soft heart to donate to our Kickstarter project. Remember, we don't receive any funds unless we meet our goal!

ABOUT GUILTMAKER:
In the 90’s Tampa was overwhelmed with punk and hardcore bands. Where did those kids go? Well some of them grew up and moved-on to become Guiltmaker. 

Guiltmaker is a four-piece band from Tampa, FL. Haunting, sometimes heavy, and downright beautiful instrumentation reveals Guiltmaker as one of Florida’s tightest independent rock bands. “Guiltmaker plays intricate, carefully-designed indie rock. Featuring startlingly adept guitar work and a front man with equal amounts passion and lung power, they arrange dreamy compositions that come to life as completely natural spectacles..”
J-Birone, The New Scheme

In 2011 we played dozens of shows in support of "The Emerald Coast." We had the honor of opening for Swedish hit-makers Peter, Bjorn, and John, we helped legendary Gainesville club Common Grounds close their doors, and we rocked downtown Tampa's Curtis Hixon Park at Rock the Park.

RELEASE HISTORY:
(2006) “Driven By Arms” EP, Kiss of Death Records
(2009) “Dilemmas” LP & CD Kiss of Death Records
(2010) “The Emerald Coast” (self-released digital format FREE)
