Hey everyone,

GunFight! is hard at work on the follow up to 2010's Frontier Land, AND IT'S GOING GREAT. We are working with the oh-so-talented producer and engineer Jeff Berner (galuminumfoil.com), AND we're hoping--for the first time ever--to press this new record to SMOOTH, DELICIOUS VINYL!

Oh... but, uh... we're outta money. (Oops.)

FEAR NOT, for we have a saying over here at Camp GunFight!: "When life sweeps the leg, counter with an illegal crane-kick to the face." It means, "ask your friends for money" (like the mysterious, handsy old man next-door told you to).

Real talk: if you've reached this Kickstarter page, it's likely because you have seen us live, heard our music online or own our first album. Maybe you've gotten sweaty with us at a loft show, or broken the "NO DANCING" rule at your regular watering hole. Maybe you witnessed Tony playing bass in his underwear or even hopped on stage to join us for a drunken encore. In any case, your good times are the greatest gift we could ever ask for. But we do need to ask one more favor of you to keep the good times rolling. We kindly ask that you support us with a donation toward our new record.

Not only will your generosity keep the GunFight! legend alive, but you'll also be rewarded with one (or more!) of the gifts listed on the right-hand side of this page. They range from a digital copy of the new album, to the vinyl version, to a fancy dinner with the band and mucho more. It's totally worth it, man!

Most importantly, we'd like to thank you for the years of love and support, both in spirit and in wallet. We treasure you. (We really, really do!)

--GunFight!

Risks and challenges

Challenges: Completing this record without running out of money; not eating too much pizza; layering the tracks with all sorts of cool studio magic; staying in tune; not driving Jeff mad; refraining from using too much tremolo on Bill's guitar (he has a new addiction); guitarmonies, MAKING A DAMN FINE RECORD.

Risks: Mental anguish/band existential crisis if we fail.
