The Red Lions are ready to record another collection of songs for you to enjoy, but we need some help paying for it! We'll send you great rewards.

Dear friends, fans, supporters, internet new-comers,

I've been living in the woods all winter and spring and have written 6 new songs for The Red Lions to record and share with you. Have you been waiting? I have.

To get an idea of what they're like, you can watch the videos we recently made for the songs: "Human Rhythms". "A Quiet Day", "Call Me By My True Name" , "White Butterfly", "I'm The Real Thing", "Just Getting Round to Loving You".

OUR GOAL is to record these songs this summer and release a limited edition vinyl (pressing of 250 copies) in October. Sound good? We need help! It will cost a total of well over $3,000 for studio time, mixing, mastering, design and pressing of the records, etc.

OK, LET'S GET EXCITED: We're going to make a vinyl record. It's going to be big, beautiful, with great songs and artwork by a yet-to-be-named professional designer. You're going to want to hold it in your hands and look it all over. Maybe you'll even frame it, since it will be an autographed copy. But most importantly, you will decide to sit down, perhaps stop everything else you're doing, LISTEN... and enjoy a side of a record. Flip to side B, repeat. If you're not that into vinyl, we will have digital downloads for the iPod, CD burning, iTunes folks as well.

Do you want that? Yes?

Here's where you come in! I have decided to partner with a wonderful company called Kickstarter. They help people fund their projects by providing a medium,, to raise money and keep things organized.

It allows fans to invest on different levels and get cool stuff in return!

We are so grateful and excited by the positive feedback we get from you guys at our shows and in random interactions, and this is an opportunity for us to reach out to you! Your donation could be a pre-order for the music as well as an investment in its production. Please accept our tangible rewards and the reward of knowing that your donation is helping us in a serious way.

We have until the end of August to raise this money, so please help us out! I'm confident that with your donation we can make a really amazing album!

Sincerely yours,

Eric Margan
The Red Lions
