The Imperial Rooster are releasing their second album! Decent People is 12 songs of punk rock inspired country/folk/blues madness!

Espanola, New Mexico's The Imperial Rooster are planning on releasing their new album  on CD and Vinyl and we need your help. We have recorded our second album Decent People and we're so proud of it that we want everyone to hear it! The only problem is we are BROKE. Great at music but currently lacking as far as having steady employment goes.

That's where you come in, you adorable person, you!

We are planning on making CDs and Vinyl records of our second album so that people who come out to our shows can purchase one to take home with them and relive all the magic and madness that occurs at every single Imperial Rooster show.

You have a chance now to help us reach our goal of raising enough funds to make these pretty little shiny plastic discs and even prettier bigger plastic discs that the kids love to listen to these days.

Our plan is a humble one. We want to make 1000 CDs and 500 LPs

We need some cashola though to make that happen (we called the pressing companies and they don't accept charm or good looks as payment options).

We aren't just going to straight up ask you for your hard earned money though, we believe that one good turn deserves another. So, in classic Kickstarter fashion everyone who pledges something will get something awesome in return if we reach our goal! Check out the awesomeness we are offering you in the column to your right and if you like what you see, kick in some scratch. 

The Imperial Rooster thanks you kindly in advance!
