Hi everyone. As some of you may know I've been working on some ideas as Gestalt. It's my first solo work. (Gio is also working on his own under the name Cruels - which is sounding amazing) --- I have put together a campaign page for my first album and I'm hoping you'll take a look at the preview link, leave me some feedback about the whole idea, specifics, the rewards, the concept, etc - I learned a lot about what not to do last time. So this project is coming from a different angle. I may take it over to PlegeMusic.com instead of Kickstarter - Still trying to decide... Anyway, click this link and leave your feedback in the little comment box provided. 

I hope you're all doing well. xox

There. It's been said. :) I can't emphasize enough how badly we underestimated how hard it would be to do a kickstarter project and end up with everyone happy. Thanks again for supporting the band and what we thought was a great way to take on the status quo. What I learned in this process is that while you're probably gonna be in debt if you sign a record deal, at least the only one you disappoint when you fail is yourself... Whether you want your shit or not I'm still trying my best to send it to you.

hi guys - we sent out what we hope to be the last of the vinyl late last week, keep an eye out for them on your doorsteps n boxes... if you don't get yours by the end of this week please send us a message and let us know. (if you're out of the country maybe give it a tiny bit more time)

been making and sending out the last of the Power of the Pen rewards too, so if you're still waiting on yours, just know I haven't forgotten about you.

haven't forgotten about any of you. Your support and your belief in this band has been so touching. Thank you...

Long overdue status report.

Hi everyone. It's been too long since I've let y'all know what's going on. I apologize for the silence, and I'll try to be brief.

We've been on the road since October 18th... (The tour has been amazing and it's been a pleasure meeting so many of you) I did mail out an awful lot of the rewards, mainly the vinyl, in the week leading up to our departure. I hope all the records sent out made it to you. If not, we're going to be sending out some messages to all our backers when we get home and we'll get to the bottom of problems as best we can.

I've taken care of most of the hand written lyric prizes, but there are a few that still need to be put together.

It's job number one when we get home, I promise.

Like I've said a million times in these messages, we've been totally in over our heads with fulfillment of your rewards. We had no idea it was going to be this challenging when we set it all up.

We've learned a lot about how to do this better next time.

Please accept our apologies! We'll be home on thanksgiving and after we digest our turkey we'll get cracking on getting everyone their stuff!
