CAROLINA EP

We've been busy! Thanks to early backers we've been able to spend time in the studio and the first single Carolina was just premiered on Stereogum! Listen here!

Our Story...

TEEN has been together for two years now. This fall, we went on our first major U.S. tour. We've put out a short EP (little doods) and a full-length record (IN LIMBO). TEEN signed with Carpark Records in 2011.

Until now, we've recorded everything ourselves - in living rooms and at a barn in Connecticut. We've been really fortunate to work with amazing people to help us get these recordings produced and released, but now with your help we can take it to the next level.

Strange Weather, a state of the art studio run by Daniel Schlett and Mark Goodwin, has been recording musicians since 2002. They recently relocated to a brand new space in Brooklyn, and presented us with the opportunity to record a live EP this winter. We've got the studio time booked, the demos are ready to go, now we just need the funds!

Our goal is to raise $5000. This will cover the basic cost of recording the EP. If we don't meet our goal then we don't get to keep ANY of the money you pledge! So please give as generously as you can. 

We have some great gifts to offer - check out the rewards on the right of the page! Everyone who gives $25 or more will get a copy of the EP, Carolina, which YOU helped us create!

Risks and challenges

We've been through the recording process before - writing, rehearsing, recording and mixing. We are confident that we will succeed with this endeavor!

Once recorded, the EP needs to be mastered and physical copies will be produced. We already have a great mastering engineer lined up to complete the recordings. We anticipate an early spring release of the first digital single and a May release of the full EP.

It is also vital that we are able to promote and share our music by playing live shows. Any funds raised above our goal will go towards our upcoming U.S. and European tour this spring!
