Pre-order this limited edition pressing of 12" vinyl! Thank you for your support!

The Creature from Dell Pond consists of Nolan Sullivan (ITtheverb), Noah Lapierre (Background Orcs), and Gordon Walters (Pride of the Atlantic, Brightest Lights). Together they form a trio of irresistibly fun rock music that is both "dance-able" and "punk-able" (whatever that means). In the vein of acts like LCD Soundsystem and Q & Not U, The Creature from Dell Pond strives to take the best aspects of dance music and rock music and fuse them together into one big fishy mess.

This kickstarter is essentially a pre-order for The Creature from Dell Pond on vinyl, with a bunch of added goodies. Any pledge of $10 or more is guaranteed our digital EP along with a 12" vinyl LP (if we meet our goal). Anyone who pledges $5 or more will get a digital copy of our EP. Above $10, there are a lot of extra rewards you can earn, including some of our favorite recipes, a concert in your home, and even a song written about you! Wow!

Privileges exclusive to backers only:

1) You get to hear the finished work before anyone else! You'll receive your digital EP and/or physical vinyl disc long before anyone else even hears the tracks!

2) You get to vote for which two songs will be pressed on the 12"! That's right, we are leaving the decision solely up to you, the backers, as to which two songs off our EP you want to hear on the 12". Whichever two songs accumulate the most votes will be pressed to vinyl.

If you have any additional questions about the specifics of the finances, just ask! We'll be happy to answer any and all questions you have about our project!
 

Here's some footage of our last live show!

Thank you, and we look forward to sharing our music with you!
