So it took us a loooooong time but we finally got around to recording some more music. All it took was the impending departure of our lead singer to get us in to action...
Whatever the reason, we did it, and we poured our hearts in. Collapsing Horse has recorded 'Heavy Handed'. We are sitting on 11 tracks we feel to be our absolute best. Some you will recognize from years of live performance, others were crafted specially for the album and will be new to your ears.
We've strained our budget recording this on our own! The final step is to share this thing with the world, and we want to do it in the way that best serves the music - VINYL!
The songs are ready, Lawrence has the artwork waiting. All we need is your help, Horseheads!
So get blow the dust off your wallets and the dust of your record players, it is time to get to work and put HEAVY HANDED on vinyl and in your hands.

Risks and challenges
Challenges?! We recorded it in our own little studio space, using rented and borrowed equipment and a computer that could barely handle what we asked. We wrote and practiced and performed and recorded all this while 4 of us worked full time and another continued pursuing an engineering degree. We produced the whole thing on our own and created all the album art. So yeah, there were some challenges.
One additional challenge with pressing an album of this length (55 minutes!) to vinyl is that we need to spread the songs out over 2 records! This is an increase in cost we refuse to circumnavigate - all these songs must be shared! However, one enormous benefit is that this potential arrangement leaves enough room to carve the grooves deep into the record, giving the highest fidelity sound available.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
