The Classic Crime's New Album

$86,277

1,981

Does it take a village to release a record independently? YES. You are our village. There is no way The Classic Crime can release this next record without you. For serious.

We are recording brand new music and we need your help to finish it (mixing, mastering, manufacturing, marketing, any other m-words that require the m-word, etc). By backing this project you will not only receive some phantasmagorical rewards, you will also ensure that our next album is the best sounding music we can possibly create, making you an integral part of the whole thing. We are thankful to have the most loyal supporters in the world, and we are hopeful we will reach and exceed our goal. There's no more middle man. It's just you and us.

We had a hilarious time dreaming up exclusive packages, limited edition items and unique experiences to inspire you guys to back this project. Many are ridiculous, we know, but we think you'll get a kick out of some of the things we're willing to do to make this record happen. As the project unfolds we will keep you, our beloved backers, up to date here as much as possible with exclusive studio updates and videos, as well as some fun never-before-seen skits from back in the day.

Anything we raise above the goal will be directed toward marketing, touring, and overall promotion of the record (shoot a video, etc). It's been awhile since we toured the entire US, so the more backers we get the better our chances! We've had a lot of fun making these packages and we can't wait to see who gets involved.

We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to make music these days, and with your pledges we hope to be able to record songs for many years to come.

Thank you for being on this adventure with us,

Matt, Skip, Robbie, and Alan
