You Did It (Again)

Posted by The Classic Crime (Creator)

Well, here we are, day two, fully funded. It actually took a little less than 4.5 hours to fully fund this project. As I type this less than 23 hours later, we have 620 backers and over $25,000 committed to the record. 

I can't explain how much it means to us to have another opportunity to add to the discography of The Classic Crime. Again a weight has been lifted, and we've been placed very assuredly "on rails," by you, to another musical destination. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we are humbled and grateful for the blessing it is.

Please read this slowly and feel this, from the bottom of our hearts: Thank you.

Stretch Rewards:

Now, of course, it seems obscene that we would only record 10 songs, right?

We've been inundated with ideas for songs to do acoustically, some of them are pretty good and have inspired me to pick up my acoustic guitar to see how they might translate.

Please make some suggestions for songs to record acoustically in the comments of this update. If they aren't already on our short list, we will consider them. Sometime this weekend we'll do a poll on our Facebook page, which we will announce here, and you guys can vote on those songs. The top two, we'll record.

If we end up raising way too much money, we might have to get even stretchier rewards, but for now let's stick with dos mas canciones (two more songs).

With love,

Matt & TCC

      I'd love to hear A Perfect Voice. I think that was one of your best songs to date.

    5. Chris Lewis on

      VAGABONDS. The first time I heard the song was an acoustic version you played on the radio and I liked it more than the album version, lol. Great song and singing of vagabonds and troubadours begs an acoustic treatment.

      The Coldest Heart! Or 5805. Really any song. Dammit y'all are good.

      ...But my vote is for The Coldest Heart. I can't wait for the album!

      "The Way That You Are" is my all-time favorite and I'd love to hear it acoustical. My wife also suggests her favorite "Salt in the Snow".

      Personally my favorite Classic crime song is "The Beginning (A Simple Seed)" I wouldn't mind any of the first 7 songs from The Silver Cord.

      I think that Warrior Poet acoustic would sound really cool! That and maybe Coldest Heart? Not too sure about the last one but Warrior Poet definitely has my vote.

      The Way That You Are. That's all I ask. Thank you for what you are doing. Спасибо. До свидания!

      One from each album that I think would go great acoustically (and which are likely my favorite on their respective albums):
      Who Needs Air (love it!)
      Salt in the Snow (Classic and would sound great acoustically)
      Perfect Voice (I would love to shout this out on my acoustic)
      What I'd Give Up (A passion filled song that would be a joy to play)

      I have really appreciated the music you guys have put out this past decade. I have benefited from it for about 5 years now. Thank you so much!

    21. Dena Milstead on

      Old ones are great.. And I think
      Who needs air & 5805 would be amazing.

      But I also think that beautiful darkside and glass houses sounded so great acoustic!

      who needs air
      the way that you are
      i know the feeling
      beautiful darkside
      painted dreams
      flight of kings
      blisters and coffee
      young again
      we all look elsewhere

      wow it's so hard to choose!

      The Fight was the first song I ever heard from you and it blew me away, I would be able to die happy if y'all made an acoustic version. That and The Coldest Heart, some of my favorite songs of all time

    30. Daniel Foggo on

      Assuming the Fight is already on the list.

      Following that, gravedigging, or any heavy song that you can completely change, no point in doing slow acousticy songs again!

      I heard you guys do a beautiful down tempo rendition of the coldest heart on your last tour, you should think about that one. Four chords would also work very well acoustically, as well as Say the Word and I Know the Feeling. Keep up the amazing work!
