The video's HERE.  Here's a little bit about the journey...

This band's been kind of an oasis for all of us for close to 15 years.  The aspirations of the road have slowly been replaced by the inspiration of relationships, kids, and, well, just the joy of playing.  That's why we do it.  And why we're making another record five years after our last one.

It never fails to amaze us how much the music we do seems to relate to people.  It's a big reason why we're thrilled to do this with Kickstarter -- to give you guys a chance to share in creating this record.

So here's where we are and where we're going:

We start tracking in a couple weeks.  We're going in with 15 songs with the hope of keeping nine or ten.  The bulk of the funds will go for studio time (probably a week's worth total, including overdubs), mixing, mastering, paying additional players, doing a limited vanity (maybe vinyl) pressing, St. Louis release show, and, God-willing, using some of it to help offset expenses for regional shows.

The band is: John Baldus (drums), Jerry Baugher (guitar, vocals), Marc Chechik (guitar, vocals), and Dave Melson (bass, vocals).  Jason McEntire is overseeing the session at Sawhorse Studio, and we'll likely have a few friends, family, kids and the occasional police officer drop by.

Again, thanks for whatever support you can provide.  Even if it's just moral.
