American Aquarium record their sixth studio album, "Burn. Flicker. Die." in early 2012 with Jason Isbell in Muscle Shoals, AL

American Aquarium is recording a new record and we are asking you, our friends and fans, to help us...

In early 2012, we will be heading down to Muscle Shoals, AL to record our sixth studio album, "Burn.Flicker.Die." with Jason Isbell. This is the best batch of songs we have written to date and we couldn't be more excited about getting these songs to you. In order to do that, we are teaming up with our friends at Kickstarter to offer a way our fans to donate and help make this record a reality.

We have been completely independent since day one. Without the backing of a booking agent or major record label, we genuinely need our fans to help make this record happen. Your pledge will go towards every step of this process..recording, mixing, mastering, production and promotion of this new record. 

Kickstarter is an incentive based donation site, meaning that individuals can donate as little or as much as they'd like to based on the items they would like to receive. We are offering everything from a simple mp3 download of the record, all the way up to our first tour vehicle, a 2002 Dodge 3500 15 passenger van.

Be it ten dollars or a thousand, every little bit will bring us one step closer to being able to bring this record to life. We thank you for your years of support and for taking the time to visit this site. Without friends like you we would never be able to continue to do what we love to do. 

Thank you again and long live rock and roll!

-BJ, Ryan, Bill, Kevin, & Whit
