Greetings. We're Diehard and we're recording our first full-length record.

In the just under two years we’ve been a band we've written a few dozen songs, played a few dozen shows in our hometown of NYC and around the region, and we've been called "catchy," "passionate", and even "good" by the press. Check the links below to see/hear more of our music.

We've worked out a scenario with some talented folks that would allow us to record our first full length record exactly as we'd like. This will take more cash than we have, so we need your help. You'll be glad you did when you're enjoying a quality Diehard jam on a mixtape or playlist later this year, ideally nestled between Superchunk and Archers of Loaf songs.

If you'd be so kind as to make a pledge, we can make this record, give you a copy, and life can become seriously awesome. Jumping up and down, exultation-inducing awesome. And that will just be your response. We'll be even more excited!!

Thank you for taking the time to check out our page. Watch the video above, and if you dig the song, please make a pledge. Only you can help make a Diehard album.
