Paper Fleet have recorded a new album. Up until now, everything we've done has been very do-it-yourself, but after a whirlwind recording session at Cowboy Technical Services Recording (thanks to Josh's old boss Roscoe), and with the help of our friend and fellow Ottomen Records recording engineer Mario, these recordings sound great! The hardest part is out of the way; now, it's just a matter of production. We'd love to be able to press some vinyl, but it's not cheap. We hope you're in a position to help us out! 

This Kickstarter project will fund the manufacture of 500 full-length 12" vinyl records with a jacket designed by one of our in-house illustrators (Josh or Jim, maybe both!) and will include high-quality digital downloads of the album tracks.

Update: there will be a comic inset by Jim Campbell and collaborative cover art by Jim Campbell and Josh Inman. we're working on it..

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, we've got this all together. The album is recorded, mixed and mastered, it's just a matter of pressing the vinyl. As long as the record press doesn't drop the ball, these should be in our hands within a month of being funded, and in yours as soon as we can send them out!

Heck, maybe we'll give you a peak into the vaults and you can choose an mp3 of one of the awful songs we gave up on and never recorded. You read that right: there ARE songs bad enough that even we won't put them on a record. Diehards only.
