Dum Spiro Spero has been making music together collectively for over 5 years. We have released three self funded EP's thus far and have traveled the US extensively since 2009. We have been blessed with continued support at home and on the road. This time we are teaming up with our go to sound engineer, James Rowlands, who recorded, mixed and mastered our first two EP's. We are also working with three amazing local artists, Juniper Harrower, Ernest Doty and our favorite designer, Kevin Carr from Sideways 8 Productions whose been working with us for years. Lastly, we've reached out to a Ukrainian artist named Daria, all of which will be producing artwork for this new EP, Alea Iacta Est aka which is latin for" The Die is Cast". After we raise our initial goal of $3,000.00 to press the CD, pay artists and produce merchandise, we already have ourselves stretch goals as we are hitting the open road once again in our lovely tour bus, Rosa Ruiz. Rosa is over 20 years old and needs some upgrades. We are planning on setting her up with state of the art LED lighting, solar power, media center and eventually bio diesel in order to have a far reaching and sustainable effect on our audiences. We are calling this summer's tour the H.O.B.O. Summer Camp because in a way we are Gypsy Hobos and in other ways this is Summer Camp. Even though we will be working, this is the job we were born to do and enjoy doing. Our tour is starting in San Diego and then we are traveling north to Seattle, after which we set our sights east for Chicago at which point we turn west again traveling through the midwest into Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Nevada. Besides playing music at home and abroad we desire community and sustainability above all else. Stay tuned as we travel through the US this summer and update you all from the road with anecdotes, comedy, mischief and adventure. And Thank YOU!!!

Risks and challenges
The only obstacles we foresee is shipping these wonderful products to you fine people. We are prepared to begin shipping these prizes and or fulfilling our offers come late summer, early fall once we return home from tour. Time and location limitations on some of our rewards will be fulfilled ASAP such as the gardening projects or the we cook you dinner and perform a show reward. These may have to be negotiated outside of this upcoming tour if you are not on our H.O.B.O. Summer Camp tour route. Other than that we see nothing getting in between you and your rewards.
