Update #1

New reward: Limited artist's print. And a free party/show.

Comment

Hello everyone,

First of all our undying thanks to those of you who have generously pledged so far. We really, really, appreciate it.

Second, we have a new reward: a numbered low-run limited edition print of the album artwork, hand-printed and signed by the artist Thomas Peri. It's going to look beautiful and it will be printed on high quality paper suitable for printing. 

You can get the print for pledging at the $60+ level — and that comes with a free digital copy of the album — or you can get the actual 2LP vinyl album with the old CDs, stickers, and digital bonus album too by pledging at the $100+ level. 

Finally we'll be doing a secret outdoor show for our friends and supporters on Saturday, June 11 (rain date to be decided) at sunset on the rooftop of a warehouse in Mid-city New Orleans. This will be a fun casual party with our own homemade barbecue and beer, and Chef Menteur will play a full set. We'll also use this to shoot the end of a DIY music video we're working on. Anyone who pledges at any level gets an invite.

Thanks for your support. Hope to see you there.
