Recording our new EP with Grammy-winning producer and hitting the road for tour through the remainder of the year.

From day one our motto has been OUR victories are YOUR victories.

HONOR SOCIETY has always been an inclusive band, not an exclusive one when it comes to our fans and supporters. From when we were touring house parties in a mini-van, to our wild ride on a major label, we've given ourselves freely to our fans because this journey wouldn't be nearly as rewarding or fulfilling without you.

With that said, we are starting this Kickstarter project because we want to include you in our next creative endeavor and we need your help to ensure that for the remainder of 2012, we can deliver NEW MUSIC and LIVE SHOWS to our fans old and new!

We've already begun recording brand new original music!  We're actually writing this project description from the studio, where we're working with Grammy-winning producer Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Bruce Hornsby) and it's going really, really well...like...really well.  And being an independent band at the moment, we don't have the resources a record label would normally provide, so funding to complete and deliver this new music is where YOU come in to the picture.  Your pledge dollars will help us finish our NEW EP and every pledge reward from $5 to $100 includes a digital download of the NEW EP (and a bunch of other awesome stuff, duh.)

We're going on tour in July & August with Allstar Weekend, however there are a lot of cities that aren't part of the tour. We want to keep the tour going once the main leg is done so we can hit those cities and bring the music to you.  Below is a list of the current tour dates - you can find ticket links and more info at our website:  http://www.honorsocietymusic.com We plan on adding more dates during the course of this Kickstarter project...that's what this is all about!

Also, if you pledge $3,500, we'll come to your town and play a private acoustic show for you (a la our groundbreaking Under the Sun / Under the Stars Tour back in the day) and if you pledge the ultimate $10,000 we'll play a private full-electric concert for you and your friends!!

Check out allllll the good stuff we're offering in the REWARDS section to the right >>>>  There are some really unique and interesting options for you to choose from.  Carefully read the reward descriptions and pick out something nice for yourself or someone you love.

For the duration of this Kickstarter project, we will be actively updating our project page with blogs/photos/videos from the studio and from the road. You'll get a peek into everything we're doing...we might even share some of the new music with you as we finish it!  We want to keep you FULLY in-the-know with what we're working on, since you are an integral part of it!  

Lady GaGa has her "Little Monsters", Bieber has his "Beliebers" and we have YOU. The "Honor Society...enators"? the Honor Society-ites"? We'll work on the nickname but we'll be working on the music and live show first haha.. just know that we love you and we truly appreciate your support.

"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams..."  Let's dream of more victories, together.
