About this project

The time has finally come! Not only have we been given the opportunity to embark on a North American tour, but it is with none other than the fantastic Pain of Salvation from Sweden. We've been fighting and scraping to get on a tour, ANY tour since the inception of this band and now here we are- five years of blood, sweat and tears to come to a point where our first tour happens to be with a band that has been one of our biggest musical influences and we couldn't be more excited. You can buy tickets on our website!

This is where our awesome fans come in, because let's be honest, if it weren't for you none of this would be possible! We can finally connect with everyone who has been buying our records over the years, which is super exciting. Plus, we get to show a bunch of new people what they've been missing out on. But as some of you know, touring is a very expensive endeavor and as we are not backed by a label or a rich person, we're having to come up with some creative ways to finance this magical journey.

And that's where our rewards come in. First up is the live album Madness in Atlanta, which you can get as a digital copy or pressed on CD (above album image is placeholder). If that's not enough we have a DVD documentary Touring the Madness featuring both live and backstage footage.

Or maybe you want to go with the Motherload reward, which comes with the brand new Manikin Parade t-shirt (pictured above), Between the Madness sticker, BTM coffee cup (below) and more!

And if we reach certain stretch goals then we'll have even more cool stuff for everyone who pledges $30 and above, such as a vinyl edition of Between the Madness and a professionally shot music video of "Infestation." Check out the rewards on the right side of the page and see which one is best for you!

Of course if you really want to go crazy then check out the very limited Motherload Plus (pictured above) before supplies run out! Includes a CWB poster, t-shirt and signed CD!

Risks and challenges

We are no strangers to overcoming our share of challenges. With three successful studio album under our belts we have ample experience at pulling together all aspects of a project including planning, production, pressing and marketing. The live album's production team has already been assembled and will include Clay Withrow as producer and Cameron Conyer as engineer (Between the Madness).
