About this project

We are For The Wolf! We're from Tulsa, Ok and we wanna press our Ep on vinyl!

The idea for, Dark Dark Dark, started when we were asked by our home town Asylum Haunt to write them a theme song based on the Haunts background story.  We recorded this great song for them called Aethyr and the song ended up so awesome that we felt it should be released on something physical.

While we were recording our first full length album Hi, Tapes!, with producer Chris Cauthen, we had been playing around with some heavy, stoner rock songs and kind of put them on the back burner, but now we're bringing them to life!  We're compiling our heavier tunes and Aethyr together to create a 4 song Ep that will rock too hard!  These are the song titles that will be featured on Dark Dark Dark:

  • Aethyr
  • Heaven is a Ghost Town
  • Self-Taught American Teen Wolf
  • Ninak Tushka  

All we need to do to make this happen is finish recording the last 3 songs and get it pressed.  We will start recording in the last few weeks of January to make sure that when the KickStarter ends and we are funded all we have to do is the final mix and send out the project immediately to be pressed.  We will be constantly updating our facebook, posting pictures, videos, and sneak peaks of the art in progress!  Here's us playing one of the other songs that will be featured on Dark Dark Dark, live in the morning on BMMS on 97.5 KMOD.

Heaven is a Ghost Town

We will be pressing 500 copies of Dark Dark Dark on "7, Grimace Purple, Colored Vinyl.  Each record will come with a digital download card.  The record sleeve will be a fold over jacket with album art already done by our graphic design team and the inside art will feature an illustration done by Joe Whiteford of Harley Poe!

Once we get the funding we'll be working with our producer, Chris Cauthen, our graphic designers at Somnium Studio, and we'll be pressing the vinyl through Pirates Press (http://www.piratespress.com/cms/) We are all super involved and have a great team of friends that we work with every time we start a project.  So it will be easy to see this whole thing through and the process goes very quickly. 

If you like what you see and hear, please donate and help us meet our goal!  We wanna make music for you!  

Check us out at http://www.forthewolf.com if you'd like to hear and see more!  We've got music videos and a full length album available on iTunes just for you!

Risks and challenges

We are already set up and ready to go finish recording the last few songs. The only challenge that stands in our way is the money we need to record, get the vinyl pressed, and make this project happen.

So basically, there is no risk involved, just the challenge of raising the money. If we can meet our goal then we can release our Ep. If we can't meet our goal then we can't make the Ep and we'll be sad. The power is yours!
