The 4 Aspirin Morning has been keeping the punk/ska flame burning for two years, and it's high time we had a radical studio album to back it up! 

If you've ever seen our live show, you know that the 4AM is frenetic, energetic, and downright wild. Our first EP, Midwest Excess, sold several hundred copies by word of mouth alone... you can check out some tracks on our facebook page or our official site. We've been working hard to put some real, actual, FUN back in the music scene all around the Midwest, and with the support of friends and fans we can make this something really special.

We need your help. While we already have the costs of recording covered, we still have all the production costs looming over us- album post production and CD duplication especially. So over the next 28 days, we want to raise $2500. Right now we're working with nationally known recording engineer Jake Johnson at Paradyme Productions, who has worked with famous bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Avenged Sevenfold.

To make it worth your while, we will be creating special, one of a kind merchandise; selling off some of the instruments used over the course of recording, and promoting it all with a concert series! This is YOUR chance to be a part of our history!

As this is written, we have already been tracking in the studio for two days. Our album will be a FULL LENGTH, 11-SONG project full of punk rock fury, blasting horn lines, and fist pumping hooks. Some of these songs you may have seen us play live. Some of them are brand new. But either way, we will be pushing hard to make this the most amazing punk/ska album you've ever heard outside of the 1990's.
