Please, Please help Golden Animals finish Their NEW Album!

It has been a long time coming...  We have all the songs written for a double album, but we are gonna settle for one LP now.  We absolutely need your help to make this happen and do not have much time!  Please contribute and be rewarded with an array of spectacular pleasures as well as the inner-knowledge that you helped make... THE GREATEST ALBUM EVER!

How will this album be made?

We have already finished the first single from The NEW Album, "All Your Life".  The rest of the album will be recorded, mixed and mastered by the same team. We will be recording and mixing with Producer / Engineer, Matt Boynton (MGMT / Bat For Lashes) at his studio, Vacation Island Recordings in Brooklyn. After that, Mastering Engineer Joe LaPorta (Beach House /  Vampire Weekend) will be polishing the tracks at The Lodge.  For more details, check the FAQ section.

Golden Animals have been a band since 2006, why are your only releases from 2007 and 2008?  Have you guys been writing and touring over the last few years?

We were a very new band when making our early releases.  We had never toured and had only played a handful of shows at that point. Since then, we've toured for 2 years, written and developed about 100 songs, spent uncountable hours in the desert playing music, improved 1,000 times over as musicians and toured the UK for 3 months straight... The whole time playing music that has never been released!

So, what's missing? We currently have NO help as a band. It is just Tommy and Linda, a difficult place to be when you need to make a new album... Anyone who knows what it takes to make great sounding records can tell you it does not come for free.  And therefore, you do not have much of a chance to have your work heard unless you find funding... We hope this campaign will give fans of our recordings and / or live shows as well as those just discovering us the opportunity to tell us they want a world with Golden Animals in it, touring and releasing music.

It will take your support of The NEW Album to make all this happen. Thank You!
