SPACE PIZZA

In case you missed it, we (for real) sent a slice of pizza into space for a music video. It's about a girl with a big idea (to send a pizza to space). Check it here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6fdr-Fiv92c

Again, the video would've been completely impossible to do without your support. So basically, YOU GUYS SENT A PIZZA TO SPACE. We've got a lot more fun ideas on the way too n_n

ALBUM NEWS!!! (BILLBOARD)

THANKS TO YOU GUYS, ENDLESS FANTASY debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseakers chart, AND #2 on the Dance chart. Our minds are completely blown and are unable to process what this stuff means for us - but what it means for you is that your support took us one spot above Will.I.Am (#3 in dance) for the week :) 


We've also just found out that this project has become the 2nd most successful music campaign on kickstarter :) THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!

GUEST T-SHIRTS!!!

      FUCK YEA

      BRYAN LEE O'MALLEY SHIRT AND A MD SHOW

      Guess I'm going to the DC show and the MD show

      Glad we could be apart of the success you've garnered at the Billboard! The TV shirt design is fair at best, though I like that each letter has a thematic font to go along with it, I can't help but feel there's something missing. Can't wait to see the design of your Uber Thumbdrive next! :D

      Creator Lindsey Nathaniel on May 29, 2013

      I absolutely LUVVV the T-shirt design!! When I saw Bryan Lee O'Malley's name, I literally screamed with excitement!!! I do love Luke's pose, too! Look @ that BUTT!! & James looks cho- kawaii~!! I never heard of Mare Odomo 'til now, so I will definitely check out that Pokémon comic; sounds rly interesting! & hooray 4 space pizza! Everytime I see that slice in space, I think of an alien swiping it! (@.@) Intergalactic peace achieved through delicious PIZZA! (Lol I wish!) N E way, much congrats on the Billboard, Dance & Kickstarter achievements & thanx a bunch 4 the tour list & allll this extra awesome stuff! ***~\(^3^)/~*** chuuuu!

      Creator Ian Hutchings on May 29, 2013

      I'm actually surprised at how few people like the shirt. I understand differing opinions and such, but the people actually pulling money out are being especially gross. Since when is Kickstarter just a store? I don't know if it's better for you to prevent that by adding shirt options or standing ground.

      Personally, I think it's pretty good. I really liked Letters to an Absent Father, so the Odomo aspect was definitely a sweet little surprise.

      Creator Leon Morgan on May 28, 2013

      Reeeeally on the fence about the shirt design. After seeing how awesome the album art was, and how the amazing posters, the USB drives, even the stage lights and stuff were, I totally expected something that at least followed in that spirit of Endless Fantasy. I mean everything else about the campaign and everything surrounding the album is basically seamless, and the elements feel part of the same cohesive whole while still being unique in their own way, but the shirts just sorta stick out like a sore thumb.
      Still, mad respect to you guys for even attempting Endless Fantasy on such a huge scale.

      Creator Alice Renée on May 28, 2013

      I love the shirt design actually. Congrats you guys, I'm so proud of your #2 spot! And the space pizza! Can't wait to see you in SLC w/Baby Ghosts. I know you're busy, but do you have an estimated timeline for sending out those USBs? Much love uwu

      Creator Iron Curtain (Chiptunes) on May 28, 2013

      Since the T-shirt is proving unpopular (at least according to the comments here), is there any way you can just re-stock some of your old ones or ask for a redesign?

    8. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator David McGill on May 28, 2013

      don't like the shirt im afraid thought it was going to be endless fantasy related or something, changed my pledge to the poster/cd reward thankfully you have annihilated your goal anyways, sorry about that fellas.

    9. Photo2.small

      Creator Dannel Jurado on May 28, 2013

      can we give you more money for extra shirts?

    10. Tshirt.small

      Creator Ryan Bell on May 28, 2013

      I dig the shirt. Checked out yalls store too and I will deffinitely have to pick up the furby shirt with the sunglasses cat smoking a cigarette. this campaign just gets better and better.

    11. Missing_small

      Creator Kevin on May 28, 2013

      The shirt rules. Do we request size/color after the kickstarter is finished?

    12. Kueh.small

      Creator Brett P. on May 28, 2013

      Coolio. Can't wait to get all my cool shit

      Creator ryne on May 28, 2013

      I KNEW it was going to be Bryan Lee O' Malley haha I'm so excited. A poster version of the shirt would be cool too, but it's going to be awesome wearing something so unique to the band. My only question is how do we pick which color?

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Casu Marzu on May 28, 2013

      Yeah a shirt version of the poster would be awesome.

      I hate to say it, but I'm not in love with the t-shirt design either.

      I would love the fireball T-shirt to be restocked on your site, just throwin that out there

      Creator Casu Marzu on May 28, 2013

      Does it actually have their names on there like that? I wanted an Anamanaguchi shirt not a Bryan Lee O'Malley & Maré Odomo shirt =(

      Creator Amund "Leaf" Syversen on May 28, 2013

      Yeah I was hoping for something similiar like the poster. Stylish yet simple.
      Got to say I love the album though! Been listening to it day and night for the past 2 weeks!
