About this project

We've started this kickstarter to put out Vacation Dad's debut full length on MJ MJ Records.  The album is called "NIGHTMARE MAKEOUT" and contains all of Vacation Dad's hits!  The record has been in the works for the past year and with your help it will finally see the light of day.  Check out Vacation Dad's bandcamp to listen to some of his tracks - http://vacationdad.bandcamp.com/  The song HOT PIZZA will appear on the record, along with HEMP SCENTED BODY LOTION, IHOPEYRFAVORITECOLORISEVERYWHERE, and about nine others Vacation Dad has been playing live for the past year.  We are trying to raise enough money to replace Vacation Dad's stolen equipment so he can get back in the game, finish the album and have it pressed on glorious 180 gram vinyl for release on MJ MJ Records.

We talked to all the bands we know and love and compiled a 31 song mixtape.  We're making the tape, along with a lot of other cool things, available as rewards for all our generous backers.  The tape features new tracks from a lot of awesome bands like Cloud Nothings, Truman Peyote, Blackhawks, Yalls and more.  Check out our bandcamp to stream the whole thing! - http://mjmjrecords.bandcamp.com/

Along with the songs, some of the artists have created custom cover artwork for the first 30 cassettes created.  Handmade zines by our best friend Shelly are also available (check out some of her work here - http://www.wearefriends.us/), along with copies of our previous releases, hand-painted t-shirts and a friendly postcard with a cool picture taken by Vacation Dad on the front

If you're feeling really generous (or just want to play some Sega) you can fly us out to your house and we'll make you some dinner and play NBA JAM all night!

Since we were robbed we've been pretty broke so we need to raise money before we can start making the comp cassettes.  Please be patient when ordering, we promise to ship the cassettes out as soon as we possibly can.  Also, make sure you tell us your size and color preference for any MJ MJ tees you may want.  

Feel free to email us with any questions you may have, and follow the links if you want to learn more about Vacation Dad, MJ MJ or FMLY.  

Don't be shy, anything helps!  

Thanks so much!
