First there was 'Yellow.' Maybe you have it already. Maybe you've heard about it through the grapevine. Maybe you have no idea what we're talking about.

If you fall into the last category, here's the skinny: 'Yellow' is a 7-song EP, the first of 2 we plan to finish before the world ends at midnight when the clock strikes 2012.  Now we've begun the second EP (which yet to be titled, we'll call it '2' for now) - think of them as fraternal twins, related but far from identical with full psychic capabilities and sympathetic birth pains.

Both of these EPs represent very new territory for us. Together and separately they have stretched, challenged, scared and excited us. We are loving every second and we can't wait to share them with you.

At this point in the process, we feel a little like astronauts in the '60s - we have this cool new spaceship ('Yellow') and now we're putting the finishing touches on the launch pad ('2') so we can go to the MOOOOOOON!

But, like the astronauts, we can't do it without NASA.

That's you.
You're NASA.

We are turning to you now for help and support, because we can't do this without you.  As a donor, you will be the first to receive this music in the form of your very own handmade copy (check out our video for a behind-the-scenes peek at the nifty production line for 'yellow' if you haven't already)! Beyond that, we will love you eternally and you can take pride knowing you were instrumental (pun intended) in making this music possible!  You can also receive 'Yellow' retroactively if you missed the first chance - plus a whole slew of other goodies for donor packages to suit any budget!

Ultimately, these two EPs will be released as a double album - that official release is roughly scheduled for early next year. But why wait?! Get them before everybody else, and before THE WORLD ENDS!! 

Let's lasso that moon folks. We love you.
