Update #3

to me, your name rhymes with love. literally! err, figuratively.

Comment

...From these humble beginnings (see picture below), the finest Valentine's Day song of all time is currently being molded.  Hey, that sentence was propaganda!

 We'd actually like to take a second to thank you all again for your generous support, and let you know how jazzed we are to be preparing your backer rewards at the moment:  we're sifting through demos, removing pieces of thank-you cardboard with fine Swiss craftsmanship, and if anyone you know is scrambling for a Valentine's Day present, we're working on a real doozy of a love song for our backers.

We've got about a week left in our Kickstarter campaign, and could never have dreamed we would receive this much support-- we're currently at 125% our original goal, which means some truly amazing things for our album:  all funding that we have received past our goal is allowing us to consider better recording facilities, and will be used directly for improved mixing and mastering personnel on the record.  In short, we now have some real options for this thing, and it's all thanks to your support.

We've said it before, but we are absolutely blown away by this, and will never, ever forget the help that we are receiving from friends, family, fellow musicians, and the community for this project.
