Dearest Folklore Family, Friends, and Enthusiasts of all sorts:
It has been 5 years since the last full-length Insomniac Folklore album, and we are immensely pleased to announce our latest project, entitled, "Everything will Burn"! This is a collection of intense and personal songs, exploring apocalyptic themes of love and living against all opposition in the world we live in today. In a way, it is a look at history and our place in it, drawing from influences like: The Torah and the horned Moses tradition, Immanuel Velikovsky's "Worlds in Collision", the Sci-Fi works of R.A. Lafferty, The Apocalypse of John, the paintings of John Martin and the time period of the latest "Tetrad" of four "Blood Moons." We will also be making musical nods to the likes of: Leonard Cohen, Goldfrapp, Tom Waits, Nick Cave and also touch on some of our Metal influences!
We intend to release this album on 12" vinyl, CD and Digital Download. Many of you have asked us for vinyl over the years, and we feel that this is the right project to be our first 12" record release.
We are about 80% complete with the recording process! We are really excited to present our most mature and easily best sounding album to date! Ten of the Twelve are tracks recorded with only some vocals and minor overdubs to wrap up!
Our goal for this project is $3,000. I feel this number bears some explanation. We have already invested thousands out of our own pockets on studio time and new home studio equipment to make a record worthy of the rich sound vinyl offers. The result is already turning out to be a recording of exceptional quality that we are very excited about! The money we raise at this time will go toward mastering, fees and the actual cost of pressing and packaging records and CD's.

We hope to wrap up recording in August. We will be taking a couple weeks in July to focus on recording the 2 remaining songs, finishing lead and backing vocals, record group vocals and any remaining overdubs. After the recording is finished, we will finish up the mixing and send off the album for mastering, and then pressing!
We have a preview video available for the song "Black Widow" posted above. We will show you a couple more preview songs soon.

Risks and challenges
This is a rather low risk project at this point. The album is on its way to completion, but we cant get the album pressed the way we want without you! We are hoping for a December release of the album in all formats (vinyl, CD, Digital).
Another potential risk is that sometimes record pressing plants take longer to finish up an album then they quote. So, there is a possibility that CD copies may be ready in December and vinyl could possibly be delayed. (I am not saying that I am expecting a delay, I have just seen this play out with friends bands in the past)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
