ST 37 is from Austin TX, and we play psychedelic rock in the tradition of the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Chrome, Hawkwind, Can and other pioneers of the interstellar highways. We have played shows with some of the finest space rock bands on the planet, including Chrome, Hawkwind, Bardo Pond, Suishou No Fune, Trad Gras Och Stenar, Silver Apples, and most importantly regarding the near future, Acid Mothers Temple. Created in 1987, ST37 is still very much alive, and we just released our new album ,"I'm Not Good", on Cleopatra Records. To date, we have released 40 different CD's, records, tapes, and singles, and contributed tracks on another 40 compilations. 18 of our full-lengths are available for download on our rewards page. Why are we launching a Kickstarter?

Well, it's because...

We are most excited and honored to be invited by esteemed Japanese psych/prog band Acid Mothers Temple to tour as their support act for their entire 2015 North American tour! The tour includes a whirlwind 31 shows in 31 days, and extends up into Canada as well. We are inviting you to help us fund this tour, which will require a van rental, gas for a 12,000 mile tour, food, and lodging, We will be gone from our homes for over a month, and will not be able to work in order to pay our bills or mortgages / rent. So every person that helps us with a donation will be very much appreciated.

ST37 has toured in the past but never before at this capacity, and not for several years. Our kids have grown up and we are ready to go out on the road, do this tour, and by the time we get back, hopefully record some more. We are certainly committed to continue and create even more churning, swirling space rock extravaganzas!

Risks and challenges

We specifically designed this campaign to be very easy to fulfill. We have a brand-new album out, so it of course is the centerpiece of the premium offerings. Most of the other premiums involve services, which require no shipping, or LPs/CDs/T-shirts, all of which we have in stock and have many years (15+) experience in selling mail-order.
