The Tressels have just completed recording our latest record entitled AMERICAN MIDNIGHT. We are more proud of this record than anything else we've released.  We wish to put out an extremely high quality recording in a timely manner. 

We require funding to have AMERICAN MIDNIGHT professionally mixed and mastered, and to have the album duplicated in a high quality manner.The cover art will be designed by pro photographer/Tressel percussionist, Mickey Reds. 

In the Fall of 2011, we released our most personal, most percise record up to that point.  It was called American Sunset. 

(American Sunset is available as a pay what you wish download at bandcamp.com.)

This record is the second in a triad of records we call the American Trilogy.

A year of shows, songwriting, and the development of a more mature version of our sound happened from last year until now.

We demo'd and demo'd again.  We let the songs grow as they became part of our live set.  

American Midnight is already recorded.  Let's get it heard.
