Hello Ska Fans!! We here at The Holophonics have been recording and performing ska punk music in Denton, TX for the last 5 1/2 years, and we are preparing to release our 3rd album of original music this spring! You may know us from our cover songs and with that catalog included, this new album will our 16th!

As with all our recordings, it's done completely in-house at our home studio, Holophonor Records. That saves us a lot of money, but the big expense for us this time is pressing the record to vinyl for the first time! (We'll have CDs available too!)

This Kickstarter is the best way for us to offer a preorder for the record and put up some cool rewards for your support too! Although this album is new original music, we'll keep releasing cover songs every month through our Patreon, and now you have the opportunity to choose what songs we cover! Or maybe we'll write you your very own personalized ska punk song!

We're finishing up the recording sessions this January, so we'll start posting some sneak peaks of the new songs as they become available. We've got some fun tour plans for the Spring and Summer taking shape now too, so stay tuned for more updates!

Thanks y'all! <3

Risks and challenges

We're recording the album ourselves, so it's definitely gonna happen! But if we don't raise at least $1000 on Kickstarter we won't be able to press vinyl.
