Welcome to the Deadside...

...and welcome to A Sound of Thunder's first official concert film! LIVE FROM THE DEADSIDE is a complete, authentic live concert document. Filmed professionally on 6 cameras, Live from the Deadside puts you in the trenches with our hometown crowd at an up-close-and-personal high energy club show! No edits, no overdubs, and no tricks - this is a raw, complete concert, "warts-and-all", including all the improvisation, between-song-banter, and yes, even a few mistakes! 

STRETCH GOAL: $20,000 - Bonus Concert!

Our first stretch goal is a huge one! If we hit $20,000 we will add a second full-length professionally filmed concert to the Blu-ray! In September 2014 we professionally filmed our "The Lesser Key of Solomon" release show at Empire in Springfield, VA. The show was captured on multiple camears and the footage looks fantastic. This is the footage from which we created the video for "A Sound of Thunder" below. We have the entire concert! If we hit our stretch goal we will be able to edit the whole show together, and it will fit on the same Blu-ray disc with Live from the Deadside!

TOMYRIS Shirts Added!

In celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month we're offering these shirts featuring Tomyris, warrior queen of the Massagetae who defeated Cyrus the Great in 530 BC! We'll also throw in a high quality MP3 of our song "Tomyris" so you can celebrate her royal badassery while pumping your fists in the air! The shirt is available in YOUR CHOICE of RED, BLACK, or WHITE, and in WOMEN'S FITTED (XS-XL) or MEN'S/UNISEX cuts.  Thanks to Trav Hart for the spectacular artwork! 

To add a Tomyris shirt to your rewards:

  • Add $25 to your pledge if you're in the US
  • Add $35 to your pledge if you're outside the US

  • Complete unedited concert audio on separate CD & Digital
  • Music video collection including TWO UNRELEASED VIDEOS
  • Behind-the-scenes featurette

AUDIO: This is a raw unedited recording similar to our "Official Bootleg Vol. 1 - Lesser Key Live" fan-only release from 2014 . The Blu-Ray concert will feature alternate audio tracks allowing you to choose between a stereo room microphone source (warmer, more ambient sound) and a stereo soundboard source (dryer, close-up sound). There will be no edits, cuts or overdubs. To preserve the authentic live concert vibe the only work done will be some minor EQing and final mastering.

TEN YEARS OF THUNDER!

It's hard to believe that 2019 marks the tenth anniversary of the band! We'll be celebrating from now (10 years since Chris and Josh chose the band name and started writing and rehearsing original music) all the way through fall of 2020 (10 years since Jesse joined the band and completed the line-up).  LIVE FROM THE DEADSIDE is just the beginning. If we can reach and surpass the goal for this project it will kick off a massively ambitious slate of projects that we'll be rolling out over the next 18-24 months:

  • LIVE FROM THE DEADSIDE (shipping April 2019)
  • 10th Anniversary Collection featuring new songs and alternate versions of classics (fall 2019)
  • A massive new original comics series & concept album (Act One coming late 2019/early 2020)
  • 80+ total minutes of new original music
  • Catalonia documentary and live release
  • A new covers EP or Full-Length Cover Album

Legion of Thunder, you've always had our backs. If you can smash through the goal on this campaign we'll have an epic next few years of new releases for you! Here's to the next 10 years! The best is yet to come! 


 This Kickstarter campaign is managed by A Sound of Thunder. All rewards will be produced and fulfilled by A Sound of Thunder. 

Valiant Entertainment LLC has no financial or creative involvement in production or distribution of "Live from the Deadside". 

Risks and challenges

The concert has already been filmed! During the campaign we will be working on the bonus features and Blu-ray disc authoring. Punk Mambo #1 will be released on April 24, 2019 so that will be the earliest possible date that we can start shipping physical rewards. After the campaign ends it takes 1-2 weeks for us to receive the funds, and it will take another ~2 weeks to have the Blu-Ray discs manufactured, which means they should be ready right around the same time that Punk Mambo #1 is released. We don't foresee any major delays and expect to start shipping rewards by the last week of April; any minor delays should still have us shipping rewards by early May.
