About this project

The Scurvies, America’s favorite high-energy fun-punk rock 'n' roll band are recording a new album to be released on their very own label and need YOUR help! For the last 7 years, The Scurvies have worked hard with a D.I.Y. ethic to bring you the very best, high quality music both on stage and through your home audio device. With one full length, a handful of EPs, and 7 tours in the bag, the band is now working on a long-awaited project: recording their next album. Every rock ‘n’ roll band’s dream is to make the album that defines the reason they play. An album that conveys the feeling of sweat dripping off your smiling face and your heart pounding, as your favorite songs blast from the speakers. We want this to be the album to write home about. The one you don’t want to take out of your CD player, iPod, or turntable. But in order to do that, we need YOUR help! We’ve only been able to do what we do with the help of people like you, who have come to see us play, and supported us by buying a CD, letting us sleep on your floor, buying us food, or simply being kind enough to hang out with us. We couldn’t have done it without you! This spring, The Scurvies will enter the studio once again to record a full-length album to be released in the summer of 2011. This’ll be the one that has it all: guitars, drums, pianos, organs, tambourines, handclaps, shouting, and all your favorite songs we’ve been playing over the last few years, plus a few new ones. We are asking YOU to help us make this dream come true, because without you this album WON’T happen. We’ve prepared a bunch of very unique gifts for those who donate to this project, and we’re very excited about them! The album will be available on CD, vinyl LP, MP3 (and hopefully other formats later), but the best thing is that once the record is funded and recorded, it’ll be totally FREE to download from our website. That way, you’ll be able to share this record with everyone you know, and you’ll know that YOU helped make it happen! This’ll also be the first release on the Scurvies’ very own record label, which, starting with this album will focus on quality, integrity, and premium artistic representation of each band on the label. That means each album released on the label will be a special edition, something unique, tangible, and beautiful.

The Scurvies have always been “the little band that could.” With amazing support from friends, fans, and family, we’ve come from a small town, slowly making our way to the world’s stage, playing festivals like the Vans Warped Tour, Cornerstone, and shared the floor with the likes of The Casualties, Bouncing Souls and many others. If we don’t meet the goal, you won’t be charged a cent, and this album won’t happen. Please help us continue to do the best we can in bringing you quality music and art, and make this dream come true!
