About this project
Thin Lizzy: For Glory, or Death!
**UPDATE-2nd LP announced, High on Fire First Band Added**
***UPDATE...all wax mage versions of LP1 are gone except for the 2 that come with the two remaining original art packages***
***IMPORTANT...to get both LPs, you have to back at least the Glory edition ($25) and click "Manage your Pledge" and add on $20 for the Masters edition of the second LP, for a total of $45+shipping. You can also back higher tiers of the first LP, and then add to your pledge for the 2nd LP ($20 for Masters).***
So for example...if you want the Death edition of the first LP, you can back the $40 Death tier for the first LP, and then add $20 to your pledge for the 2nd LP, (shipping will be added after that).
For shipping, US customers will be covered by the current $6 shipping for both records, even though they'll ship separately. For International customers, we'll be in touch with you to talk about your shipping options.***
***ADD-ON AVAILABLE FOR 2ND LP. For the Masters colored/pattern vinyl edition of the second LP, add $20 to your pledge. For the Wax Mage edition add $40. Only the first 40 Wax Mage add-ons will be promised. We'll message you if you added on Wax Mage LP2 after 40 were claimed already, we'll let you know and you can grab a Masters edition.**
**UPDATE** Less than 2 weeks left, and we're announcing vinyl options, track selections, and more surprises...so check back!**
**UPDATE** We passed our goal, but we have more bands, more secrets, and more art...so keep checking back! The goal was the are minimum to go into production, but we want to spread this thing around the globe, so preorder and share! **UPDATE**
Welcome to the first release from Glory or Death Records Bow to Your Masters series of tribute albums. For this first release we chose something special: Thin Lizzy, one of the most influential rock-and-roll bands of all time.
Backing this Kickstarter will get you exclusive access to the highly-limited first pressing of Bow to Your Masters Volume 1: Thin Lizzy, which will feature some of the best heavy bands in the business. The teaser video is just a taste of what you'll get...the mighty Mos Generator recorded a monster cover of Massacre...and there's much more where that came from.
The album cover features art from David Paul Seymour and Austin Barrett; the 4-panel cover will feature re-interpretations of classic Thin Lizzy photos and album covers. The David Paul Seymour art is featured in the launch video, and Austin Barrett is working on his own interpretation of the covers from Vagabonds of the Western World and Nightlife. We've come up with great limited vinyl and art packages (including DPS and Austin Barrett originals, signed screenprints, wax mage vinyl (only 20 copies), and more).
Other bands/tracks will be revealed throughout the Kickstarter campaign, and we'll also be adding some one-of-kind rewards from the bands.
Mos Generator is just the beginning. Hop on board...for Glory, or Death!!!

Wax Mage Vinyl Samples
The fine folks at Gotta Groove Records have a secret shop where they hand-make (yes, each individual record is poured by hand) extremely limited vinyl. We're working with them to come up with something very special, but there are only 20 wage mage records spread across various reward packages, so move fast! Here's some samples of what Wax Mage has done...
FAQ About Adding the 2nd LP
Question: I pledged for the first LP already, how do I add the 2nd LP? Answer: Log on to your kickstarter account and click the manage pledge button. If you want to add the Masters edition of the 2nd LP, add $20 to your pledge. If you want to add the Wax Mage edition, add $40 to your pledge! We'll be sending out a kickstarter Questionnaire after the campaign wraps up to sort out all add-ons!
Question: I haven't pledged anything yet...how do I get both LPs?
Answer: You first need to pledge the original LP that you want (Glory, Death, Wax Mage, Test Press, Original Art w/Wax Mage), and then you have to add on to that pledge for the second LP, either $20 for the Masters edition or $40 for the Wax Mage edition!
Question: Will both LPs ship at the same time? How will shipping work?
Answer: Our current plan is to have the first LP ship as planned in around November. Band on the 2nd LP will have to go into the studio to record new tracks, so we anticipate the 2nd LP will be ready by March of next year (being conservative). We will ship each record as it's ready. The original cover will be a gatefold, and will have a pocket for the 2nd LP ready to go!
For US buyers, the one $6 shipping charge will cover you for both shipments. For international customers, don't add anything to your add-on pledge for additional shipping...we'll contact you individually and work out the best shipping arrangement for you!
Risks and challenges
We are an experienced group of DIY musicians and independent label owners with a history of creating and delivering music on all platforms and in all formats.
There are always risks of band/track changes and production delays, but we have an experienced team of project managers making sure everything goes as smoothly as possible, and will be transparent about any problems we encounter along the way. Custom/handmade vinyl also has it's own risks...we'll do our best to delivery the Vinyl that we selected, but sometimes the manufacturers run out of colors or have issues getting things to look exactly the way we imagine them. If we have to make changes, we'll let you know!
When this is over, you will definitely have the most awesome Thin Lizzy tribute LP ever made.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
