About this project

Fans, future fans, friends, and family of MENTAL GIANT! 

We are excited to announce our endeavor to record our debut full-length album entitled, “A Fortune Revealed in the Struggle”.  We could not be more proud of the collection of songs we have been carefully writing and re-writing for just over a decade now!  It is hard to believe, but yes… it has been just over 10 years since the origin of this band. 

Just a few months ago, we were presented with an opportunity to work with veteran producer Pete Thornton and KDS Studios (Formerly Transcontinental) in Orlando, FL.  As a band, we have personally funded the beginning of this project (all drums on the album have been tracked and they sound MASSIVE!), but we’re at a point where we cannot move forward without additional funding.  All donations (even if we exceed our goal) will be used to pay for additional studio time at KDS, mastering the album, album art, the first run of production (1000 Copies) and maybe even some out of state shows! 

We are asking for your help to make this album become a reality for us.  Any donation is truly appreciated!  We promise, if you KICKSTART MENTAL GIANT, WE WILL KICK YOU BACK with a variety of packages including pre-release album copies and downloads, special edition Kicktstarter “I Kickstarted Mental Giant, and They Kicked Me Back” T-shirts and stickers, posters, exclusive entrance into our Kickstarter show, and more. 

Please donate, tell your friends, post our Kickstarter link on your Facebook page, scream it from your rooftop - ANYTHING YOU CAN DO TO SPREAD THE WORD!  We will not rest until the goal is met and we can put out an album we know you will share our pride in.  Thank you so much, we look forward to rocking all of your faces very soon!

-Tosh, Dubs, and Ryan
