Be The First To Get Good Morning Bedlam's New Album "Like Kings!"

Hello! We’re Good Morning Bedlam, an indie-folk band from Minneapolis, MN. We’ve spent the last year and a half touring (five national tours), practicing together, growing closer as a family, both musically and personally. We’ve had the opportunity to do some amazing things like showcase our music at SXSW, play literally hundreds of shows in twenty-seven different states, and tour outside of the country into Canada. We have been so privileged to meet so many kind, generous, beautiful new friends across the nation.

These new adventures have made something important, new music!

In preparation for our second album, we have written, what we think is our most exciting material yet, We have named it "Like Kings" and we have worked hard to give you the album your support has deserved!

Rewards: We're very excited to be printing the album on CD and Vinyl, as well as producing t-shirts, stickers, patches, beanies, and mugs. 

Vinyl: We're printing a run of high-quality, transparent, clear vinyl. Each vinyl record will come with a digital download of the album.

CD: A four-panel, full color, wallet. CD contains high quality audio of "Like Kings."

T-shirt: An All new T-shirt design that will be released with the new album. 

Beanie: Keep your head warm, while sporting a hat that has the GMB logo on the front. 

Mug: Drink your hot drinks out of a mug with the GMB crest on one side and our bear logo on the other side.

What the Future Holds: 2018 is set to be our biggest year yet! We will be almost doubling the amount of shows we played in 2017. We will also be returning for a full week of shows at SXSW. This album is set to be released this Summer on Last Triumph Records.

Stretch goals: We want to keep our Kickstarter goal as low as possible, while still realistically covering the majority of the costs of production, but we have some extra ideas we'd love to follow through on.

$9,000- We will do a series of live videos of songs that are on "Like Kings."

We are overwhelmingly thankful for the blessing all of you have already been to us. We can't wait to make some new music for you!

Risks and challenges

In order to make it happen we need your help!

Backing this campaign will help cover, recording, mixing, mastering, and manufacturing the physical goods of "Like Kings." In addition to this, we will be mailing out the album to hundreds of radio stations, and media outlets. All of these things are expensive and we need your help to make it happen!

We have an amazing team in place, ready, willing, and able to make this album everything it has the potential to be. We are all in this together!

Good Morning Bedlam is our full-time occupation. We have dedicated our careers to making and performing music. Your preorders and additional donations to make this album possible are greatly appreciated. We wholeheartedly believe that this is the best music we’ve ever made together; if you liked “Prodigal,” you’re going to love “Like Kings.”

Thank you, sincerely, for taking the time to read this, and for the tremendous generosity, love, and support you've all shown us from day one. We are humbled by it, truly.

We love you.

-Isaak Elker, Tori Elker, Sophia Beyer, Noah Pearson (aka Good Morning Bedlam)
