We have spent the better part of 2010 recording and mixing our second album, Self Confidence! Like our first album, it was written, performed, produced, engineered, and mixed entirely by the band out of our rehearsal space, and we are just pleased as punch with the results. Our MySpace has a preview song from the album, Gay Rage, a tirade against religious opposition to gay rights.

Because we're so proud of the results, and particularly since we have solicited some excellent album artwork from a few of our very talented and sexy friends (including Skinner Davis, who painted the cover to Brian Posehn's last album), we would like all the copies of the album to be shat out by a giant, professional awesome-making machine. We are also planning to have it mastered by Mell Dettmer (The Melvins, Sleep, Nachtmystium). According to our calculations, this will cost a total of $1,500, which is roughly $1, 495.23 more than we currently have saved up between the three of us (it would be only $1,472.42, but our drummer bought himself food this month).

Any additional funds raised will be spent on buying our mothers flowers to make them feel better about raising talented, articulate little boys who, in spite of all they did for us, started a death metal band.

    The above, plus we will write and record a song about the topic of you choosing! We are practically just your puppets at this point. Your talented, sexy puppets. However, please note that what we write will reflect our own attitudes about the given topic, which may or may not coincide with your own. Also, we will send you a link to a printable certificate good for one hug from each member of Evangelist, redeemable at any Evangelist concert. You are, after all, our puppet master.

  9. Select this reward

    Pledge $150 or more About $150

    The above, plus we will play any event of yours within an hour's drive of Seattle. Please note we can only do this if you name an event that will be logistically possible to play. If you ask us to play the seventh inning stretch at a Mariners game, for instance, or on top of the Space Needle at the stroke of midnight, we might not be able to swing it. Your wedding reception would be just fine, though.
    We will probably also be willing to do events further away from Seattle, but we'll need to work out the details with you first - hit us up!

    The above, except rather than just play a concert at your event we will put on a clinic where we will explain how to play the songs, why we wrote the music and lyrics the way we did, and answer any questions you or your guests might have about us (within reason - for example, don't ask why Andrew hasn't had a girlfriend since joining the band).
