Hey folks... Austin Lucas here. I'm excited to announce that I will be headed into the studio in December with producer extraordinaire Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Andrew Bird, Caitlin Rose) to record the follow up to 'A New Home in the Old World'. As most of you might know... recording a record is not cheap. You have studio fees, producer fees, mixing fees, mastering fees, studio musician fees, costs for hard drives and tape to record to plus other misc fees. After that we have to pay for artwork, manufacturing, music videos, photos and etc.
This is where YOU come in! We've been saving our pennies but currently don't have enough to pay for the whole recording process. We can make due with an additional $5000 and anything we get over that will be put back into the record to make it that much better. We are also planning on making a couple music videos for this album. Plus how cool would it be to have multiple versions of vinyl for this one?! We need your help funding this last bit of the record BUT we are offering lots of cool packages to thank you for your donations. -------------------------------------------------->

Risks and challenges
We will be recording the album in December in Nashville with Mark Nevers. The studio time is already booked. We will be mixing just after the first of the year and mastering by the end of January. In February we will be working on new photos and a couple videos as well as album artwork. We are hoping to have the record released by late Spring/early Summer. The biggest challenge will be the logistics of getting all elements finished while touring but once we have the funds it shouldn't be a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We will reach out to you once the project is funded to get your top 3 songs. We will be in touch. Stay tuned.
