About this project
Songs from our Hoarse & Roaring - our previous release
Short Road (IMA nomination for best indie rock song - 2012)
Saddest Song (IMA award - best acoustic song - 2012)
- Between 8 -10% goes to Kickstarter + Amazon for their fundraising services - 2 Weeks of Studio time, Production Costs, Mixing + Mastering = $14,000 - Pressing the album + Artwork = $2,000 alone. - Getting t-shirts, photo books, and other campaign materials made
What we don't make with the Kickstarter we will fund by other means.
We will be recording our album at June Audio in Provo Utah. Scott Wiley will engineer.
Nate Pyfer will be producing our album. He helped out much with our first record - did all the string arangements, and much of the beauty of that record is thanks to him. He also produced our good friends The Moth & The Flame.
We hope to finish the record by June and have it ready for release.
The relationship with our label was not what we had hoped it would be, and we made a mutual decision to part ways.
A conceptual version of a song called "Save Me" recorded 100% live (sounds 'n all) - that may make it on the final album.
Yes. We have over 30 songs we've written over the course of 2 years that we will narrow down to around 10 songs for the full length album.
We literally googled "Parlor Hawk Fan" and other terms to find a few loyal fans. We also looked on facebook + Pinterest + Instagram to find a few. Don't be offended if you are not on there. It was completely random and we love you all.
