We've wanted to press an album on vinyl ever since we started releasing music together as Sleepy Eyes of Death, but we never really had the budget or the opportunity to do anything beyond our standard CD and digital releases. We recently decided that with the help of Kickstarter and some awesome incentives for funding the project, we could finally make pressing a record a reality!

Exclusively packaged for vinyl, DARK/HORIZON compiles both SEOD albums 'Dark Signals' and 'Toward a Damaged Horizon' and includes totally new remixes by Steve Moore (ZOMBI) & others, that won't be available in any other format. The double album will be strictly limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and include a sleek double-gatefold sleeve, colored vinyl, and also a free digital download of all the tracks.

If we meet our goal of $2400, we'll be able to release the album and have it available by June 2011. Since this amount is actually only about half of the total cost of the project, anything that exceeds this goal will help ease the burden of credit cards on our end and also possibly allow us to put even more into DARK/HORIZON, through things like upgrading to 180 gram vinyl.

In addition to the vinyl release, we're also really excited about a bonus album that we'll be offering only this one time through Kickstarter (beginning at the $35 pledge level). LOST CODES features over a dozen unreleased studio tracks, demos, and alternate versions of songs that span from sessions off 'Streetlights to a Ribcage' up through 'Toward a Damaged Horizon'. Again, these are not available anywhere else. LOST CODES will also include liner notes and specific details about each selection and be a fully packaged CD-R album.

Thank you in advance for any help toward completing this project and to anyone who has ever purchased our past albums and come out to our shows!

    XBOX Live w/ Sleepy Eyes + all of above (excluding test print). For all you nerds out there, this one's for you: all four of us will spend an evening playing videogames online with you. Halo, Black Ops, Left For Dead 2, Uno, Carcassonne - we'll play anything and it's totally up to you. We play a lot of videogames and whether you like it or not, you'll probably be our virtual friends forever after this.

    HOUSE SHOW! + all of above (excluding test print & xbox live). Although we typically require a ton of electrical power and a good amount of space for our live show, we really do love to also play in smaller and stripped down settings. With this in mind, we have included the price of a generator rental into the pledge amount so we can retain as much of our usual lighting and fog machine set up but also are completely willing to play without this if space or power would still be an issue. This one is pretty loose and up to you. We're open to any type of situation. If you'd like us to play somewhere outside of the greater Seattle area, please factor in a little bit more just to cover gas money. If you are interested in having us play someplace nowhere near the Seattle area, email us and we'll talk and hopefully make it happen! // please add $4 for US shipping or $10 for Intl.
