WE DID IT. TOGETHER! Hitting the road in six days and we couldn't be more thankful or indebted to our backers. YOU GUYS MADE IT POSSIBLE! See you all out there.
An anonymous donor contacted us and has decided to match the funds that we raise here on Kickstarter - up to $1,000 by 7/28. This is huge! Basically what this means is that if you make a $10 pledge our donor will also make a $10 pledge - so on and so forth up to $1,000 . It's hard to believe the support we're receiving and we are eternally grateful to all of you who are backing us! 13 days to go. Let's make this thing huge.
Here's the plan: We're heading off to Boise, ID to start the tour on July 30th then down through Nevada, all over California, back up to Oregon, through Washington and ending back in the birthplace of Psychic Rites - Moscow, ID on August 24th.

What we need to make it happen: We're three guys and lots of gear, so we need to find a suitable and affordable way to get around. If we meet our goal we'll be able to rent a minivan and pay for gas to get from show to show. That's all there is to it.

Risks and challenges
We're taking a huge risk just putting this thing together but it's the last time we'll be able to tour as a full band until 2014 and we think what we're doing is worth it. So we're embracing that risk. We've only done short 'weekend warrior' trips up to this point. We're ready to bite off more but getting on the road is difficult. We don't use computers to make our music and getting all of our gear around can be a huge challenge. We have big synths. The main challenge we see with going on tour is really doing every show the right way. This means playing everything live, being prepared with our own sound system if need be and bringing visuals and other atmospheric elements to make each show special. It's quite a production and takes a lot of energy. We've been honing our craft for live performance and feel confident in our set and sound. We have everything we need to put on an awesome show - except a way to get there. With your support our first tour could be amazing. We can't thank you enough for taking the time out of your day to help. Seriously - THANK YOULearn about accountability on Kickstarter
