About this project

We've been trying to figure out the words to describe the journey we've taken in writing this record... It's quite hard to define the roller coaster of emotion and difficult situations we put ourselves through because of our passion for music. But it's safe to say it has been a learning experience, making up better musicians and people. The past two years we have written, discarded, and re-written, over and over. Now, we finally have a record that we could not be more proud of. We’re ready to share this music with the world!

We've heard some talk about Kickstarter, and how it's helped passionate people achieve an important goal. Since we're in a "make or break" spot, we figured it's our best option. It's scary to even think about, but this may be our only hope!

So, after a few months of brainstorming, shooting, and editing with help from our good friend James Lano, we put this video together for you. The idea of the video is to summarize what we've been working on for the last 2 years.

If we reach our goal in these forty five days, we plan to record the album within the following months. We will tour again with our new record out by Fall 2012! Any extra money given over our goal of $10,000 will be used for distribution, tours, festivals, and getting our music to your ears.

We are all so thankful for this band and where it has gotten us. We also want to thank our fans, friends, and families for helping us get to this point. The least we can do is give it all back to you.

We would love your help. You're forever appreciated!

FAQ

  • The short answer is, yes. Our goal of 10k is strictly for recording. Anything over that goal will go to pressing and touring. It might take us awhile after the recording process to get it pressed, if we bearly make the 10k. We are all vinyl lovers, and it's one of our goals to get a vinyl record in your hands with tangible artwork. Never the less, eventually it will be available. And if you donate through this Kickstarter, you will only pay however much we have to pay for the vinyl or CD!
