Mefisto is raising funds to finish and press our new album!
currently titled: 
 "       P         E         N         T        A       C         L         E       "

 We plan on doing a limited run of spiffy colored Vinyl, and pressing CDs too! 

              ~~~ We need your help to make it happen!!! ~~~

     ~~~   Purchase an LP / CD / MP3 or just make a donation!!!  ~~~

Though this will be the 5th "MEFISTO" album, it will be the first ever recorded with our live trio lineup consisting of Christ Cooleye on vocals & guitar, Dave Alvarado on bass & backup vocals, & Clinton Cameron on drums.

  Not only is this the first Mefisto album recorded live as a full band, but THIS IS THE FIRST MEFISTO ALBUM RECORDED IN A REAL STUDIO!

Though much of the mixing and vocal work is being done at the Silver Ark (our personal, modest studio in Silver Lake), the foundation recordings were all done at the mysterious Pink Castle in Eagle Rock tracked by Bradley Cook! (who has worked with R.L. Burnside, The Dwarves, & The Foo Fighters)

 On our last album, we raised the money to press the record ourselves from the beginning, but this time all savings have gone into making the recording itself the best quality possible, now with your help to get it pressed, it will certainly be the most impressive Mefisto release thus far!

          We're reaching out to you to help make magic happen!!! 

          Don't miss your chance to join us for this historic event!

Risks and challenges

We are currently hard at work on completing the new record and intend to have it finished by the end of December 2015. There can be delays in the vinyl pressing process, but the album completion date should not be compromised. Albums and CDs will be sent out upon completion, but if it seems to be taking longer than anticipated, digital versions may be sent out ahead of time. There shouldn't be any issue recieving shirts and stickers on time as well, they are already in the works!
