Stretch Goal #1
Stretch Goal #1

How about a vinyl pressing of a 100 twelve-inch records? HOW ABOUT YEAH! We've hit our $3,600 goal, but feel free to increase your pledge...and make sure you keep spreading the word.

We've got a $20 stand-alone reward on the right...check it out, people. In addition, if you've already contributed at a previous level, take a look at the brand new STRETCH GOAL REWARDS. You can upgrade your pledge and grab one of them if you want some vinyl love. What do you think? 

Boom! We'll be back soon with more updates, and hopefully some more stretch goals. Let us know in the comments what other kinds of cool things we can add as stretch goals!

The Lost Wheels, a Minneapolis-based rock group, is looking to get back into the studio to record its first full-length album. We've been playing together for roughly a year, and we recorded a six-song EP this past summer. In that time, we've secured a residency at the historic Gluek's Bar and Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis, and appeared on TVs all across the region on TPT's Almanac, one of the network's longest-running television shows.

Once we're in the studio, we'll be working with Mike Marston, the same producer who recorded and mastered our EP. Mike's been one of our biggest supporters, and we're looking forward to taking more time to create our full-length album. We've got a lot of exciting tunes that have never been recorded, so do civilization a favor and help us change the world with our rock music. No pressure.

As if hearing our amazing songs isn't enough of a prospect for you, we've got plenty of great rewards listed on the right there. Take a look! They are all exciting and delicious.

Thanks for taking a look at our project! We hope you chuckled at least once during the video above, and hope even more that you decide to favor us with a pledge. You're the best!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We've got a strong support network in place to help us make sure our project gets completed and our rewards get created and sent out to all you lovely people. Our producer doesn't pull any punches, so he'll make sure our album is the best that it can be. And we've also got strong relationships with some of the most interesting artists in the Minneapolis area, so our album art, digital print, and t-shirts will all look absolutely smashing. We're confident we'll overcome any challenges that come our way.
