As you guys may know we've been hard at work in the studio over these last couple of months to record six brand new songs for the fall release of "The Transition EP". Since we started we've gotten all of the tracking done and even got the single ("You Will Remain") mixed and mastered and out to radio and iTunes!
We're doing this EP without the support (and subsequently the financial backing) of a record label. It's an exciting and challenging time for us but we really feel like this is what the Lord is calling us to do. When launching into this endeavor we had no idea where funding would come from but, as always, moved forward completely trusting that the Lord would provide. We cashed in a lot of favors and spent out every dime we had saved up. Now we're looking towards you- our fans, our friends, our family- to help us come up with the rest of the money to mix, master and press the final product so that we can release these songs to the rest of the world!

We're looking to raise at least $4,000 by October 10th (though any amount over this could easily be put to great use). Remember, with Kickstarter, if you don't raise the full amount by the target date, all the donations to back to the donors so it's very important for us to reach our goal!

We've come up with some fun "backer rewards" that get cooler as the donations get higher so check those out! This campaign will also act as our pre-order for "The Transition EP" as you'll get a free copy if you donate at least $10.

Ways you can help:
1. Prayerfully consider donating to this very crucial aspect of our music ministry.
2. Tell your friends! Post a link to our campaign on your blog, Facebook, Myspace and Twitter accounts!
3. Get creative! Consider raising funds in your own youth group or with a few friends to make a higher donation and get cooler rewards!

We're very excited for the plans that God has set in motion for us for the coming year and stoked for the opportunity to have you guys be a big part of that plan!
