We are a Chicago indie band that has had local success and needs funds to record our debut full-length. Since we formed in 2008, we've recorded a debut EP that has had every track on Hype Machine, sold out numerous shows in Chicago, opened for White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Shiny Toy Guns, Maps & Atlases, and The Hood Internet (among others), played SXSW in Austin, and recently had a song featured on the ABC primetime show, "The Gates". We've decided that we are due to record our first full-length and carry this momentum into a full-fledged career for our band. We have been in contact with Engine Studios here in Chicago, whose clients include Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, and Josh Ritter, and we have agreed to record our debut album there with Neil Strauch (Iron & Wine, Gomez, Bonnie "Prince" Billy). Unfortunately, we need at least $6,000 to make this a reality, and since we don't have that kind of money lying around, we need your help. We are sitting on what we feel is our best material yet, and can't wait to record it. Please help us record this album by pledging a donation on this page. Thank you!
