Jackpot Donnie has returned to the studio for work on their yet-to-be-named third record.  This time around they're working with producer and engineer Steve Gillis, former drummer of Filter, at Transient Studios in Chicago, IL.  So far, the tracks sound amazing, but there is still a lot more to do.

Making a recording of this quality takes countless amounts of time and energy; unfortunately, it also costs quite a bit of money.  We've decided to use Kickstarter as a means to receive necessary support from our fans, but also because it gives the band a chance to give back in a variety of ways.  No matter the size of your donation, we want fans to feel directly involved with the recording process.  This is just as much your record as it ours.  We hope that you find the rewards enticing enough to donate some of your hard earned money to our cause. 

If you've seen our video, you can tell we really need the help.  Like...really bad.

Thank you so much for your support.
