Season's Greetings Ifdakar Fans!

In the spirit of the season, we're hoping we can count on your generosity to help us finish a HUGE project we've been working on!

Since late 2017, we've been hard at work on our 3rd studio album with producers Jake Cinninger of Umphrey's McGee, and Death Row Records platinum recording artist Willie Waldman! In addition to producing, both of these superstars also perform on the album on multiple songs. We already have four tracks finished, but we just need some additional funds to complete the album!

And that's where you come in!

If you contribute to our project, you can earn one-of-a kind rewards like:

- A trip to Summer Camp as a member of the IfdaCrew!

- A perk-filled trip to Moon Dance Music Festival!

- A private Ifdakar show at a location of your choice!

- A chance to play with Ifdakar on stage, LIVE!

- Advance copies of the new album, limited edition swag, autographed merchandise and so much more!

- You could even earn a chance to take a trip with the band to Jake Cinninger's home studio in Michigan...

You guys have given us so much throughout these 11+ years, and we can't thank you enough for all of the great memories! Now let's make some more, and finish this album TOGETHER!

The deadline to contribute is Tuesday, February 5th! And remember, if we don't reach our goal, we don't get ANY of the funds, so SHARE, SHARE, SHARE, and please contribute if you can!!!

Thank you! We love you guys!

- Curt, Frank, Jon, Michael, Zach
