"Sex Cells" is our debut album.  We recorded to 2 inch tape at WaveLab Studio in Tucson, AZ and mastered at Golden Mastering in Ventura, CA. This album has been in the making for over a year and is finally ready to be presented to you!  You have the ability to back this project and receive an IMMEDIATE download!  You wont have to wait to see if we reach our goal, you will get something tangible (virtually) right away!  We will email you a link to our album.  Check out the great rewards to the right and see what else we have to offer.

The final step in the process is getting the album pressed.  This is what your money will be going towards.  The 180 Gram vinyl records will be pressed by United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN.  We are still looking into where to get the CD's made.  We are set up to professionally silk screen the shirts and posters on our own, so we are saving money by doing a lot of the work ourselves.

Check out some of our original show flyers here.

Thank you very much for taking the time to learn about our project.  We hope you enjoy!

Risks and challenges

For our debut album we feel it's important to be connected to every step of the process. This takes a lot of time and effort. We are designing all the artwork for this album ourselves. As you can see in the Rewards section, we will have a lot of silk screening to do and artwork to create once the goal is reached!

But in the grand scheme of things, the only challenge we face right now is monetary!

FAQ

  • We jumped the gun. We have to physically send out individual download codes to you personally. We do still have day (and night) jobs, unfortunately, so we may not be available to respond to your pledge right away. We promise to send you the link and your download code within 24 hours of your pledge (sometimes within minutes). Thanks for your patience!
