Hey everyone, thank you for checking out our Kickstarter! Why are you here? Simmer down, I will tell you everything. Basically, A Lot Like Birds has had the amazing fortune of accomplishing a lot of feats in our short nearly two year existance. After the addition of Kurt Travis (Ex-Vocalist of Dance Gavin Dance / 5 Minute Ride) as our lead singer and second front man, within 6 months we quickly signed to the amazing Doghouse Records, acquired The Artery Foundation as management, and In June, entered the studio with Producer/Engineer extraordinaire Kris Crummett to record our second full length album. For all of which, we are INCREDIBLY grateful, and extend our thanks Especially to all of you friends and fans out there, without which we would be lost. The reason we have started this program is because, in light of how fast everything has progressed, we have not been able to save enough for a van in time to tour the release of our darling child sophomore record. We have been getting a lot of requests for shows in all of your respective cities for a while now, and we would love nothing more than to grant each and everyone one of them, but we need your help! Please check out the rewards we have set up, in return for your generosity!
