About this project

Office of Future Plans is the new project from Jawbox/Burning Airlines/Channels frontman J. Robbins.

After playing shows in the Baltimore/DC area for the past year, we're excited to finally have material recorded. To start, we're self-releasing our debut 7", but we need your help! We'd like to release it the same week we open for The Dismemberment Plan (1/23). That's a tight timeframe, but we're confident it's possible!

Your pre-order will help pay for the following:

  • vinyl manufacturing (initially limited to 500 copies)
  • printing costs (beautiful folder sleeve designed by Zach Barocas)
  • mastering (Bob Weston!)
  • shipping/postage
  • stickers
  • a portion of a run of t-shirts

Track listing:
Side A: Harden Your Heart
Side B: Everybody Loves You When You're Dead (Stranglers cover)

As a Kickstarter pledger, you'll get a special download of the 7" songs several days before the official release. Streaming may be available sooner on BandCamp, but you'll be the first to have it on your iPods.

And now, the reward levels....

  • $1 and greater - a thank-you mention on our BandCamp site.
  • $7 - the 7" (w/ free shipping in the US) + stickers (non-US pledgers - please pledge at least $10 to cover the extra shipping costs)
  • $25 - the 7", stickers, and a t-shirt (w/ free shipping in the US)
  • $45 - 2 copies of the 7", 2 t-shirts, and stickers (w/ free shipping in the US)
  • $100 (Option 1) - the 7", stickers, a t-shirt, and cello tracks on a song of your choice, recorded by OFP cellist Gordon Withers at his home (great for musicians or friends-of-musicians!)
  • $100 (Option 2) - the 7", stickers, a t-shirt, and a complete guitar setup at Brooks's Big Crunch amp & guitar repair shop. (Limit of 3, and pledger must be local to the Baltimore/DC area)
  • $100 (Option 3) - the 7", stickers, a t-shirt, and Darren will give you a free drum lesson! (Limit of 5, and pledger must be local to the Baltimore/DC area)
  • $500 - the 7", stickers, a t-shirt, and a studio day at J's Magpie Cage studio in Baltimore. You also get your choice of any additional OFP band member (Darren, Brooks, or Gordon) to sit in on your session for a few hours.
  • $1000 - all of the above, including the studio day, plus OFP will arrange and record a cover song of your choice.

The studio day and cover song rewards are subject to logistical constraints. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, etc. We'll do everything possible to accomodate your availability, within reason. Additionally, the cover song is subject to negotiation. We're open to most anything, but we won't be re-arranging an hour-long piece for gamelan orchestra, for instance.

Thank you so much for pledging, and please share this project with all of your friends!
