NEW LP FUNDED IN 8 HOURS

STRETCH GOALS

Over 500 backers in 24 hours! We’re so blessed so many of you are supporting our new music, so we are promising to deliver more based on number of backers, regardless of amount raised. Please tell your friends, anyone who backs us at $10 or more will get the additional music once the stretch goals are unlocked. 

We have a little bit to go, so we think these goals are achievable! One stretch goal down, 3 to go.

Fellow Citizens,

In the 2 years since A Mirror Dimly was released, we’ve been so moved by all the stories about what that group of songs has meant to you. Those stories have given a lot of meaning to what we do, which is why we are responding in the best way we know how. We’re making a new album!

This journey started with a small group of college students from Seattle, but it has become something far more significant then we ever imagined. It’s not the shows that energize us, although there are few things sweeter in life then getting to sing our voices out with you all. It’s not the streams that give us motivation, although it’s quite humbling to see all the different people listening around the world. What excites us more than anything is knowing that God is doing something in your life and our life through these songs that is so much bigger than just making music. It’s an honor to get to participate in that.

Why Kickstarter?

We left our label of 6 years last year and set out and do something different. Not only did we partner with the creative geniuses of Humble Beast, we also took on the responsibility of producing this record from start to finish without the backing of a label. We hope that with your preorder of the album on here, we can finish strong and release it in early 2019. 

Regular website preorders are transactional and lonely, but Kickstarter preorders are interactive and communal. We get to keep you updated on the process and give you exclusive perks, all while getting your comments and input along the way. Kickstarter allows you to directly effect what we make with your support and input, and we think that’s cool.

What You Get

Besides new music from us, you’ll get exclusive packages that we’ve hand built for you. Backer-only t-shirts, pullover hoodies, beautiful vinyl, and your name thanked in the album liner notes are just a few of the fun things we’re offering. 

Plus, here are some instant goodies:

  • Every backer, regardless of reward level, will get an immediate download of a brand new Christmas Song "One More Night of Christmas", delivered through backer-only update.  
  • Backers over $50 will get a rough mix of brand new song "22 Steps" from the new album delivered immediately through a backer-only update.

The New Album

The past 2 years have provided us with a lot of new material. We’ve written enough songs for 2 albums, and more. If we had the resources today we’d record them all, and maybe we will! For now, the front burner issue is getting our 4th record across the finish line which we know you all can help us do. No matter how you back us on this one, thank you for supporting us all these years. You’re bringing a really special project to life that without you, wouldn't happen. We’re together on this one and we couldn’t be more thrilled by that idea. So here goes nothing……

Much love.

Zach, Nathan, Brian, Adam and Spencer

Risks and challenges

As always with Kickstarter, if we don't reach our goal we get nothing, and these packages don't get made.

Vinyl sometimes has manufacturing delays that are unforseen
