Over the past 15 years, JVA has played shows and toured and toured some more and had plenty of good and bad luck. We've been stranded in Wyoming blizzards and fucked by fuel pumps. Our girlfriends have hawked their nice clothes at used shops to send us money for busted vans and shady-ass tours gone bad. Our families have wired us money so we could get our sorry asses back to the town we love. Strangers have had us in for Thanksgiving. Through the thick and the thin, we've always had people around to celebrate with or to pick us up. And through the grace of others we have always made it home. Its been a trip. And for myself at least, it has been a humbling and sometimes embarrassing road. When youre pushing thirty and a 15 year old kid who loved your set gives you 5 bucks at the merch table to make sure you get a bite to eat it can be a hard pill to swallow. So now its time to pay back. Our good friends in The Last Slice have come across some hard times. Much worse than our hard times, and the worst has happened close to home. Their van was stolen, along with their trailer and all their gear and they are currently stranded in Florida. If you know anything about JVA between 2003 and 2010, you know that the only things we owned were in our tour van. Our gear was all we had. So here's what we are going to do: If you would like to hear some new JVA tunes, ie, a new album, help our friends. One hundred percent of all donations to this site will go to put our friends back on the road. In return, we'll record some new tracks for you, for free. High quality shit. The more you donate, the more we'll record. Give enough and we'll do a full length. Then what? You get it for free, with a big high five from us for being badass. We'll try to incorporate as many of our friends and band members in the process as possible. Alright. Our part of the agreement is out there. The rest is up to you. Thanks! - The JV Allstars

Risks and challenges

This album will be recorded at the lovely Fuse Recording Studio in the band's home town in Lincoln, NE. Matty works there, so if the Last Slice get the funds we are trying to get them the band will go out of their own pockets to record all of this stuff.
