We are so excited to announce that we are finally going to make a new album! To our loyal fans, we apologize for teasing you with the idea of new music for such a long time. Now, the time has come for us to make a new record that is so good that you will have no choice but to forgive us!
No Band is an Island
We have decided to record 6 brand new songs with producer Steve Wilson [Hawk Nelson, Children 18:3, Leeland] this time around. Not only do we want you to play a part in making this new album, but it is simply impossible for us to do it without you! By backing this project you will receive some super-fantastical rewards AND be a part of permanently shaping our future as a band.
Your pledges will go directly toward every aspect of making this new album. From beginning to end we will need to pay for gas, food, hotels, studio rental, tracking, mixing, mastering, album artwork, duplication, packaging, promotion, and postage. Phew! It's enough to make your head spin and we hope it paints a picture of just how vital your role is in this project.
We took our time in creating some exclusive rewards, unique experiences, and a couple of ridiculous prizes to inspire you to back the project. Many of you know us pretty well and we hope that as you check out the rewards you will have a good laugh when you see just what we are willing to do to make this new record happen!
As the project unfolds we will be keeping our backers up to date with exclusive video footage and blogs about our progress in making the album. Again, for those of you who know us, you can expect to see some videos marked by the boyish, humor-drenched-insanity that always seems to find us.
Anything we raise above our goal will be directed towards putting together a massive album release show, a music video, and working to get a single out on the radio.
Why Are We Using KickStarter?
We have always been about connection. Connecting with people through honest lyrics, connecting with fans online, and connecting with people through an energetic live show. We believe that this new batch of songs, coupled with the fact that this album will be entirely fan funded, will take our connection with each of you to the next level. Using KickStarter allows us to show that we have just as much faith in you as you have had in us over the years!
We are thankful to have the most loyal supporters in the world and we are hopeful we will reach and exceed our goal.
We only have 30 days to raise $8,000 or all the money from your pledges goes right back to you. You don't get your rewards. We can't make you any new music. And everyone will be sad.
From Our Heart To Yours
We are so blessed to have done this for as long as we have and we believe that it is only by God's unfailing grace and your constant support that we have been able to do so. In the last few years we've visited over half of the United States, killed a van, bought a new one, made some YouTube videos, adopted a [stuffed] squirrel, been away from home a lot, played more shows than we can even remember, and made so many new friends that we don't know what to do with them! So many of you have been with us through each of our adventures. You have shared our joy in the really great times and stood by us through the hard times. This album is our next leap forward as a band and we welcome you to join us in this new season of life. Together we can take on all of its challenges with the same faith filled smirk that we've had since the beginning; knowing all along that whether or not things pan out, in the end, everything will be just fine.
Thank you for being a part of this adventure that we call Loftland.
