Calling all 'Hookers'! Ready to shake some hands with DFH across the country? Due to the amazing support you have all shown us since our inception, we are beyond thrilled to announce our first headlining tour this summer!

Unfortunately, like most good opportunities, they come with a price. As most of you know, and have seen up close and in person, being in a band is not as glamorous as it looks. The reality is, we are about to cram in a van, have a steady diet of non-perishable food items, sleep in Walmart parking lots, and pray that it rains so that we can shower! All so we can bring you our special brand of good ol' rock n roll! Combine all of that with some overwhelming overhead expenses and you have recipe for living the dream!

So here is where we need YOU! We are humbly asking our incredible fan base to pull together one more time, over the next two months, to help us achieve a very aggressive goal of $10,000 to help with our expenses. We need this so that we may bring you the very best tour experience that DFH can provide. With every donation we will be offering special prize packages in return. Please donate as little or as much as you can.

In all seriousness, the only reason this band has done anything is because of our phenomenal relationships with you, the fans. We wouldn't be here without you, and like you've done every other time before, you have elevated us to the great opportunities that lay before us. This is the first step towards taking the DFH brand to places we always dreamed it could go to. Music is about connecting. You all have connected with us in special ways and we are forever grateful. So let's show everybody on the road what it means to be a member of Dead Fish Handshake. Nobody knows better than all of you!

P.S. Matthew has a very expensive hair regimen! Haha!

Risks and challenges

Tour-van, insurance, gas, food are all costs that we expect to incur - not to mention unexpected costs which we hope to avoid such as breakdowns and gear mishaps. We understand economic hardships that so many are going through and are beyond grateful for all the support. Trust in knowing that we will do our best to be as sensible as possible with any and all funds we receive.

We can't do this without you.
