Victory and Associates have made a hell ass rock album, and THESE THINGS ARE FACTS.
On Monday April 18th-Thursday 21st, the 4 men of Victory and Associates entered Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco to record 11 songs of rock 'n roll fury. Crowd favorites such as "You Can't Stop The Signal" and "Get Tough, Get Through It", along with newer, lesser known jams such as "Noises, Voice, You" and "Brothers Doing It For Themselves". This record, the 4th release by V&A and first full length record, will be called: THESE THINGS ARE FACTS.
Yes, we understand that people expect to hear the product before buying with music these days. This won't be the case for this record, and you are just going to have to deal with that. Consider it an act of faith. In mid May, the songs will be mixed by John Congleton (Mountain Goats, David Byrne, Modest Mouse, Smog, etc.), and sent off to mastering. This album will occur, this is a FACT.
If it will manifest in such a glorious physical media, depends on what happens here.
FACT: If funding is successful, The money will be used to put out a limited edition numbered collection of 500 180 Gram Vinyl LPs, with Gatefold artwork and digital download codes.
FACT: The gatefold artwork will be designed by the absolutely incredible Mackie Osbourne (Melvins, Tool, Bad Religion)
FACT: The package will be absolutely breathtaking, it will be a piece of art to behold as well as to listen to. The 180 Gram vinyl package has been chosen for both it's collectability as well as it's resilience as an audiophile format.
FACT: When these are gone, they will be gone. It will not be repressed as this color/package again. (Color of vinyl to be announced, largely dependent on Mackie's artwork, black vinyl *may* also be available)
FACT: If there is interest, a short run of compact discs will be begrudgingly made that will simulate, as much as possible, the actual record. These won't be throwaway cd-rs, they will be the same things press and radio get. haha, as if we are going to ship 180 gram vinyl to those folks. As if!
FACT: Even the lowest level of funding will get you a free download of this record, as well as a peek inside the process of the recording. Seriously, $1 people. We're giving the store away.
So, consider this a pre-order, consider it patronage, consider it whatever you like, just please consider affiliating yourself with success and helping fund the Victory and Associates full length LP:
THESE THINGS ARE FACTS.
