More and more these days, you hear about these bands running Kickstarter campaigns. We don’t really know what that means, but we understand that it can give us money. And we like money... Especially, since we are a hard working, indie (i.e. broke), ska band. So, we’re going to give this a shot!

Over the course of our career, we have put out 8 of the most influential SKA albums to ever be recorded (It's a fact, so no need to look this up). We are proud to announce the we are working on our 9th release!  Now, we don’t have a title yet, but we know it will be 12 to 15 songs of pure awesome.  You're probably asking yourself... "Are you going to make another amazing album like Day Job or Dreams Aren’t Real but These Songs Are?"  To which we would say something like "YUP!" You can expect this bad boy, to be in your anxious little hands, by late winter or early spring of 2015.

We know you have lots of choices when it comes to picking a Kickstarter band. SUBURBAN LEGENDS WANT TO BE YOUR NUMERO UNO!   Unfortunately, we don’t really know how this voting system works, but it seems like you vote with your money.  You might ask, "Why is Suburban Legends worthy of my money?" It's a silly question, but let's entertain that for a moment.  Unlike some other acts, Suburban Legends play real instruments LIVE and don't just push play... *cough*… EDM… We have heard other not so nice bands make lewd and vile remarks about your mom. Like YOUR mom specifically. Suburban Legends loves your mom. Please tell her we said "Hi!".  We are in touch with the kid in you (not like that). Suburban Legends just put out an entire album of cover songs… DISNEY. Cover. Songs... Give that a moment to sink in...  And then, there are these artists asking for like $100,000+ to record their album!  All we need is about $10 bucks… or something like that? Anything over will just make the album, that much more awesome!

Now, you might say, “I’m not paying for anything I haven’t heard yet!”  Well, you are in luck! We have some very EARLY DEMOS for you to check out in the sound link below. If this doesn't melt your face and open your wallet, then maybe we can't be friends. Kidding of course. ;)  (keep in mind these are early demos, some with missing parts and they may or may not make the final album)

So now that we are your number one candidate, to be voted your KING OF KICKSTARTER, take a look at all the great stuff and experiences you can enjoy with a few clicks and some campaign donations! Whoa, Brian Klemm will get your name tattoo'd on his body?! Holy cow, that Klemm sure is a crazy fella.

Update! 

The Super PAC, People to Elect Suburban Legends to Kickstarter, is making a strong case as to why we should be your kickstarter Kings!!

UPDATE #2!! STRETCH GOALS!!

WOW! Thank you so much for all the support!! We are coming into the final stretch of our kickstarter and we would like to keep stretching!! We have 2 awesome stretch goals to tell you about! You might be asking, "What are stretch goals?" Well our original goal was $10 and we made that thanks to the combined efforts of all our backers. So now we have new goals and with every goal reached our backers will get new and additional rewards!

Stretch Goal #1 If we reach $25,000 every backer from the $10 level and above will now get the Digital Download of the new album (as of now only the $10 level will be receiving this)

Stretch Goal #2 If we reach $30,000 every backer from the $75 level and above will be receiving a VIP Supporter laminate with custom lanyard! This Laminate dose not guarantee anything in particular but, If the SL guys see you wearing this at a show you will be subject to vip perks! This could include but dose not guarantee free stickers, buttons, maybe we invite you back stage for some liquid refreshment. Maybe you get a shout out from the stage! Brian Klemm might ask you to do some friendship surfing. Maybe Robot gives you a discount at the merch table. Who knows?

How will we reach these goals? Well you can always up your funding so that you can get the additional rewards and maybe yours friends have not yet heard that we are doing a kickstarter! Let them know and share this page!

Thank you so much and stay tuned for some more sneak peeks at some new music and fun rewards!

FINAL UPDATE!!!!!

There's only a few days left to go!

We want to sincerely thank everyone that's helped support us. We're going to have a kick butt record!! You've helped us reach our goal and now we feel like there's no limit we can't reach. So let's keep it going!! Let's do this together!! Let's reach for the stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Risks and challenges

In a decade and a half of music recording and merch making, we have never been so at risk! Kids, we can do it, as we've proved in the past, but NOT WITHOUT YOUR TEN DOLLARS. Support Your Local Suburban Legends, help us become king of Kickstarter!
We know that ten dollars is an ambitious amount to raise. Ska doesn't pay what it used to, but we have faith that, somewhere among you kids, ten dollars can be found to help us finish this album! In the unexpected fantasy world that we raise more than that, somehow, I guess we can spend the rest making it even awesomer.
