So we're making a new record!  This is going to be a full length, and we need help to pay for the post production.

We're starting at The Bastille Studios in Arlington, VA on 2/25.  We're going to spend 4 days or so in the studio tracking 10 songs.

The current song plan:

1. Henry Clay
2. Iowa
3. Stabfish
4. I Am Lying
5. The Cairo
6. You Must Answer
7. Jesus on the Brain
8. For Me to Reach Out To You (Acoustic)
9. Breathe You (not yet debuted live)
10. Privy to Your Pain (not yet debuted live)

After we do the tracking, we're going to want to professionally mix and master.

Ben Green from the band Seas mixed records for our friends The NRIs and several others.  We want to hire him to mix our new record.  $1000 or so for 10 tracks.

TW Walsh from Pedro the Lion has mastered records for Sufjan Stevens, We Were Pirates, and others.  We want to use him to Master.  $75 per track times 10 tracks.

We need to copyright it - that's $40 at copyright.gov

Then we want to produce physical records for sale at stores, online, and shows.  That's $910 for 300 4 Panel Digipacks from Oasis Duplication.

Making a total of $2700.

Add in KickStarter and Processing Fees...

We're asking for $3000.

So please, take a look.  And if you like the music, help us KickStart our new record!

(Note: If we go over the $3000 mark, then we'll use the rest for additional days in the studio, making merchandise (tshirts, stickers, etc.), upgrade equipment, and pay for our rehearsal space.)
