It’s been a long, long time since I've released a new album and I’m absolutely ecstatic to be releasing Wild Knights this July. Throughout the years I’ve been honored by the sea of patient Aqueduct fans and want to sincerely thank them for their encouragement, loyalty & support.  A lot's changed since 2007's Or Give Me Death…The music industry has changed, the world's changed, I've changed. This album reflects a great journey for me and its release coincides with a path of tremendous personal strength, hard work and all the ups & downs along the way.  Being able to share this music and my message with the world means all the more to me as I take the helm for this release; full steam ahead. 

I am especially excited to announce that I will be pressing Aqueduct on vinyl for the first time, another major milestone around the Wild Knights release! In the past, Aque-vinyl has been a sorely missed platform, for both myself and fans alike.  As I'm self-releasing this album, there was never a doubt or hesitation over a vinyl option when the idea was discussed in the early stages of Wild Knights.  In fact, I'm ready for all Aqueduct albums to be immortalized on wax!

ABOUT THE AQUEDUCT VINYL PROJECT 

My aim with this Kickstarter campaign is to fund the Aqueduct Vinyl Project and reissue all my past albums for the first time on vinyl. The Wild Knights record is already underway; vinyl is ordered, paid for, and nearly finished in production, so I'm fortunate to have gotten a jump on the vinyl project. Up next, fans can expect the reissue of I Sold Gold pressed on vinyl.  This album is celebrating its 10-yr anniversary this year and is only fitting to celebrate with a deluxe vinyl release.  This record will be beautiful; 180 gram vinyl with extra fancy, spare-no-expense, extra special packaging.   

Below is an overview of my schedule for the upcoming Aqueduct Vinyl Project

  • Wild Knights vinyl - available July 2015 - PREORDER NOW! 
  • I Sold Gold vinyl reissue - expected Sept/Oct 2015 
  • Power Ballads vinyl reissue - planned for Spring 2016 
  • Pistols At Dawn 10” reissue - Spring/Summer 2016

Pressing vinyl is a lengthy and costly process.  The I Sold Gold reissue is already underway in the initial planning stages of production but needs your support to complete manufacturing.  The goal is to unleash this reissue in late Sept/Oct. of this year, followed by my first album Power Ballads early in 2016. Based on the success of this campaign and if the budget allows, a custom packaged Pistols At Dawn 10" record will not be far behind, completing the back catalog of vinyl reissues.

ABOUT WILD KNIGHTS 

For the past year and a half I've been diligently working away on Wild Knights.  Writing, rewriting, adding, experimenting, deleting, recording at home, traveling back and forth between Seattle and Denton, Texas to work with longtime collaborator/producer/drummer Matt Pence.  We finished mixing the album in January and I immediately went into the studio and mastered Wild Knights back in Seattle in late February.

excerpt from Wild Knights bio:

From the opening bars of “The Petrified Forest” the anxiety that permeates Wild Knights is palpable. Rapid heartbeat bass, ominous synthesizer, a punch and a whisper; Aqueduct sings “I’m gonna run through the jungle with my head in a bag.” The story of an artist, succumbed to his own stresses, fractured by self-isolation and mental anguish - the battle against his own Wild Knights has begun…

“I’ve found through some pretty intense reflection, that my songs come from way down,” says Terry, “often inspired by some subconscious brewing rather than purposeful effort. At times I’m at a loss for their meaning, but I know when it feels right. Yet there comes a point where I can look back at a song and know exactly what I meant, in a prophetic sense”. To that point, this new album from Aqueduct took as long as it needed to take; his creative voice stronger and more dynamic than ever.

Wild Knights takes us through the darkness of self-doubt, obsession, and the struggle of self-actualization, our champion eventually pulling an emotional sword from a heart of stone, only to find it still beating after all. It might not be a storybook, ever-after ending, but there’s always chapter two…

HOW CAN I HELP? 

Aqueduct fans can help me reach my fundraising goals by pre-ordering the long awaited new album Wild Knights!  Take advantage of some really fun and unique opportunities and get your hands on all the rare and exclusive Aqueduct items offered for this campaign.  Who knows, maybe Aqueduct will show up to rock'n'roll your house or even crash your wedding!

Risks and challenges

Since the rewards offered in this campaign are geared towards pre-ordering the new album, nearly all the pieces have been manufactured and are already finished the production phase. The album has been recorded and mastered. Promotion has been obtained and is moving forward towards the release date. Wild Knights CD's are in hand!

The only reward offered that has yet to arrive is the Wild Knights Vinyl. Vinyl manufacturing can always be tricky, however I began the ordering process so long ago and have been updated throughout the production, so I have very little doubt (still knocking on wood:) that these will be available at the time of fulfillment.

I'll be providing updates throughout the campaign to keep all supporters informed of any potential pitfalls, but if everything runs smoothly and timely, I hope to be delivering rewards early. I've made you wait long enough, right?!
