      Holy shit the new mix sounds so much better!

    7. Creator Kevin on December 28, 2011

      So excited for all of this. The 4 times I've seen you guys have been my favorite concerts I've ever been too. Even the one in the small ass basement where Adam had to play outside. Keep up all of the awesome work!

    8. Creator Paul Frost on December 25, 2011

      Great show. I didn't end up grabbing my copy so just send it with the TP. Thanks.

      Is the test pressing standard black? If so I was hoping for a white record out of the half white half black 1000 pressed. Gotta have matching self titled vinyl for my record player. I'm salivating at the opportunity of two different colors!

      Mike: Thanks for the donation even on your brokest of days. We appreciate the help immensely, and we hope you enjoy the album!
      Matthew: YOOOOOOU RUUUUUUUULE!!!!!!!!!!
      Kurt: Thanks for your donation and upgrades, sir. We appreciate the tips and we'll definitely keep them in mind for the future.

      I have no idea how I stumbled upon this tonight, but boy am I glad I did. I love your self-titled album so dropping $15 on the vinyl was a no brainer (even though I'm insanely broke haha).

      You guys rule! I hope I get the white pressing. They look pretty sexy.

      Much Love,
      Mike

      FINALLY GOT PAYED!!! YYAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! GO DMAN!

    13. Creator Kurt Lamprecht on December 8, 2011

      Hey, I hope you guys get the funding you need to make a new record. You should try to get into Electrical Audio studio and record with Steve Albini. I bet that record would sound fuckin' rad and he's been known to work for cheap or free for band's without recording contracts.

      If you don't make the goal on this campaign, you should totally start a new kickstarter for the new record. I've seen bands with way smaller fanbases raise way more money than you're asking for on this site, so I think trying to combine this with an existing project after the fact makes it harder to meet your goal to double your funding.

      Oh, and you should totally do one to press Jam Dreams to wax, too. With fancy gatefold covers and such. That would make my record collection complete.

      Tyler: Thanks so much working hard and donating some of those hard-earned dollars to this cause. It means alot!
      Tina: That was an awesome message, and the fact that we're one person's favorite makes us happier than a bag of clams! Thank you for the generous donation. We hope to keep on inspiring you for inspiring us to make more music!!

    15. Creator Tyler Schmidt on December 8, 2011

      best 4 shows of my life, glad i finally got paid so i can back this wonderful project

    16. Creator Tina Matiatos on December 7, 2011

      Dear, Adam, Matt, Andrew, and Nick,
      I really hope you guys reach your goal, I can't even explain how excited I am or how much I love you guys. I've seen you live before and it was the one of the best shows I've ever been to. You've inspired me in so many ways, and I can't even begin thank you enough. You're always going to be my favorite (:
      Love, Tina <3

      Jonathan: We will absolutely kiss that vinyl, just like the french do.
      Kurt: We are pressing 500 copies. We looked at some other places, but we got some good references for United and it seems good so far!
      John: Thank you for the real talk, we love them shits. We would love to do a tour of any kind, let alone the excellent east coast.
      Zack: We love you too. We can't wait for you to hear it!
      Austin: You rule!!!

    18. Creator Jonathan on December 5, 2011

      if we purchased the 35 pledged do we get our vinyl kissed by the band on top of it being signed?

    19. Creator Kurt Lamprecht on December 1, 2011

      I'm just curious, but how many copies do you guys plan on pressing?

      Also, have you considered doing it somewhere other than United? I've heard that they are known to sometimes do kind of shoddy work...

    20. Creator John on November 30, 2011

      So glad you guys are finally dropping this on vinyl!! You guys were one of the first small bands i got into and your debut album is still one of my favorites of all time- real talk.

      You should do a east coast tour if theres still enough money left over once you make a new album, i only got to see you once at warped tour way back.

    21. Creator Zack Parr on November 30, 2011

      My favorite band of all-time releasing their self-titled on vinyl? Like I'm gonna pass this up. Love you guys, I'm looking forward to the new music. <3

      Stefan,

      This comment truly was heart-warming. Probably the nicest thing I've ever read from someone about our band. Also, thank you so much for your kind donation. Just the fact that you've come to one show is awesome, but 13? Man. It really means a lot to us. Although you couldn't raise the funds to have us come play a show, your $150 is a blessing! Keep in touch with the Kickstarter, because we're going to potentially add some fun new incentives that might make you smile. See you in December. You're the reason we keep doing this.

      Thanks so much, Stefan. Really...thank you.

      Nick and the boys

      Dear Adam, Andrew, Matt, & Nick

      I really wanted to raise the money to get you guys to come back to Minnesota for a show! After 48 hours of trying to find ways to fundraise $1500 before the deadline, I decided instead of risking the start up money to donate what I currently have and spread the word to others to join in! You guys made such an impact in my life and are the only band that ever asked a fan to go get dinner out of the hundreds I meet every year. I can't express in words or donations how you make people like me feel about the good still left in the music industry! You bet your buttons I'll make the drive to Chicago next month for the show! Last year's has yet to be topped even by Lollapalooza or the bands that spend millions in stage productions. You guys are the greatest human beings on the surface of the Earth! 4 years and 13 shows later you guys are still my most anticipated band to see preform! Whether it was a show in a coffee house with 7 people or a sweat filled show at The Beat Kitchen, I leave feeling of so much AWESOME every time! I just thank you from the bottom of my heart for the joy you've brought to your fans, my friends, and to me!

      Cheers,

      Stefan Rorick
