What a long strange trip it has been. November 2012 will mark 10 years for us as The Whipsaws. Over the years we've toured all over the country and we are proud to remain an Alaskan band. We'd like to thank our friends, families, fans, co-workers, acquaintances, bartenders, baristas, cab drivers, life coaches, fellow musicians, and artists for your love and support over the past 10 years. Thank you all.

In the fall of 2009 we traveled from our hometown of Anchorage, Alaska to Hoboken, New Jersey to record our third album at Water Music Recorders. In three weeks we managed to record, mix and master what we feel is our best work to date. The album, slated to be self titled, has sat unreleased since. The record is done but instead of just throwing it out there, we'd like to present it properly.

Here's the deal; we would like to combine our 10 year anniversary party with our CD release party.

The purpose behind our Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds to pay for album art, duplication, new merchandise, and other costs associated with releasing an album.

Thanks again everybody! We hope you enjoy the video.

Sincerely,
Evan, Aaron, Ivan & Junior
