About this project

Hello Friends!

We've been hearing from our fans for a while now, "Why don't you have any CD's or Vinyl for sale?". Let us answer the first half of that. CDs are cheap and only cost around 5 cents a piece, while you the consumer are being up-charged an absurd percentage. CD's have no soul and more times than not, are not utilized to their operational standards due to the "loudness war"; more to the point, we just don't like them. This is why we offer our tunes online, digitally, for free. It's far from a superior product to ask you for your hard earned money.

Now why we don't offer vinyl (pure analog goodness) is purely a financial question as we're all poor musicians. Vinyl is the sound of punk rock and is the originally intended format of ONSLO.

Our goal is to press a one-time limited run of 300 color (TBD) 7" records of our latest EP, Quartumdimensio Ædificium, with homemade jackets by your friends in ONSLO. The record is already in the can and ready to go. Your donation will go completely towards getting the records pressed. We are going to cover all of the other material, packaging and shipping costs....

You, our fans, can help make this vinyl dream a reality. We can't do it ourselves. If you can commit a couple of bucks and we can reach our goal, we will bust our butts to make sure you have a killer product in your hand.

How Kickstarter works, is that you the fans, can pick a donation level and the rewards that you would like to receive from us. The more you donate, the more nifty swag we'll give you. It's just like PBS, and we love PBS. We've decided on a time limit of 40 days to raise the funds needed. At the end of it, either this will be successful and your accounts will be charged immediately, or we don't raise enough and ZERO money will change hands. It's win-win.

If this is a success, we have plans of back-issuing all of our EPs from the past 5 years.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to send us a message.

Thanks for everything!
