A Video Update for You

1 comment

YOU RULE.

We're halfway to the end of the campaign and about halfway there. 54 people stepped up to back this project by pledging at least $1. One person pledged $1600. 326 "liked" this page, shared it, tweeted about this, or passed it onto other people. Thank you, from the bottom of our slanted hearts!

We put together this video update to tell you how much your support means to us. As this Kickstarter has been taking off, we've been working on the final touches of our new album (The Yellow Album) and we can't wait to share it with you.

Please continue to share the project, by email, Facebook, or Twitter (#HelpTheSlants). 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

      Hey Guys,

      it's good to see that you are doing well and rocking out. I hope to be at a show in the near future, to reconnect and catch up with you all.

      As always, take care.
