3 years ago, we embarked on a journey to share our music with the world. We released our debut album, the 4-track "Pilgrim" EP, in May of 2015. Those 4 songs were the first taste of the 15-track conceptual masterpiece we've been working hard on for the last 5 years- a full-length alternative/folk rock concept album based on John Bunyan's 1678 classic bestseller "The Pilgrim's Progress." 

Risks and challenges

This project is a work in progress, and it has been, starting from the first track we recorded for the original "Pilgrim" EP. The point of this Kickstarter campaign is to help push us the last little way we have to go on this current project. We have already done the heavy lifting on the project as far as workflow goes. The recording process is 80-90% done, which in laymen's terms means that most of the potential obstacles and delays are already out of the way. Now we have to deal with the parts that cost real money--paying for mixing and mastering, creating new graphics and photos for the new project, CD duplication (which costs more than you would think!), shooting music videos, marketing the songs to YouTube, NoiseTrade, and other music outlets, etc. These pieces don't take time as much as they take money. So we anticipate once the funding all comes in, these items will begin to fall into place with little incident. We are shooting for a release date in January of 2016.
