After recording our EP in May 2010, we've been anxiously awaiting the right moment to make our first full-length record. That moment has come and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you!

Alas, making a record is expensive. We tried in March 2011 to record on a VERY tight budget in Brooklyn, NY. In July while mixing, the engineer (our close friend) got a gig touring with a rock band for 3 months and FULL TANG was stalled.

In September, an independent record label offered to fund re-recording the songs with Craig Welsch at Rear Window Studios in Brookline, MA; and then help to fund the physical production of the recording. We booked the studio time and started preparing for "upgrading" the sound of our debut product. One week before the studio date, the label backed out for financial reasons. We were stuck with either canceling the studio time or paying for it ourselves.

That brings us to today. We decided to take the leap, keep the studio time, and figure out the financing later (i.e this Kickstarter campaign). We've already completed the tracking and recording. Now it's time for mixing, mastering, creating the artwork, pressing, and most importantly promoting and marketing our official debut recording!

We really need your help to do this! We've exhausted our bank accounts paying for the studio time and without your financial assistance we won't be able to complete the record.

FULL TANG wants to play for YOU in your hometown and until we have this CD, it makes it difficult to tour and book gigs outside of our own community here in Boston. We hope in this season of giving you can find a little bit of dough in your hearts to send our way so we can make this happen! CHEERS and THANK YOU!
