About this project

Pre-order our new album, Mayberry, and help us fund the release. Plus lots of other awesome crap you'll love.

Hey everyone! Let’s be honest -- it’s been an awfully long time since anyone’s gotten to hear any new I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House songs. Why? Well, our last album, The Sounds of Dying, was mostly written and recorded back in 2006, and we took a few years off before it was finally released in 2010. But now we've got spankin' new tracks in the can, ready to be unfurled, but we need your help to make it happen.

 We've been hitting the studio writing and recording, and re-writing and re-recording, the first new SOB songs in several years. We’re very close to being done with the recording, which we’re doing ourselves (the same as all of our previous albums) at 150 Watts studios (aka, Jon and Mole’s basement). So we've got that part covered, which means we don't need much.

Our goal with this funding venture is to complete the manufacturing, mastering, and promotion of the album. This will be our first self-released album, meaning we’ll be doing the promotional push ourselves. As it’s been quite a while since we've released any new material, we’re looking to hire professionals to help us promote it. We don’t currently have the cash to do that on our own.

If we happen to to surpass our funding goal, we're hoping to release Mayberry on vinyl as well. We’d also do some minor upgrades to our basement studio (likely a new microphone) so we can better record future projects to bring that certain Sonofabitch flavor to your ears.

Risks and challenges

We expect to release the album in May. We have a couple options for the publicity lined up, but timing is crucial, as the promotion we’ll be doing will need to coincide with the release. This means we have to hit our deadline to have the discs made and ready to go as soon as possible -- at the end of March at the latest. We’ll need to have the mastering scheduled in advance of that as well, and we’ll need our funding lined up to make that happen.

Assuming we’re able to reach our funding goal, this should all slide nicely into place. Since we’re doing all the recording ourselves DIY style, and the manufacturing is all set up to go as soon as we’ve finalized the recording and the disc design and layout, we don’t anticipate any delays.

This is an interesting second act for us, and we can’t wait to take the ride with y'all. Thanks for all your support over the years, and with the release of this new album, Mayberry. We hope you’ll love it.
