Funded! This project was successfully funded on April 12, 2012.

Update #1

You.

Earlier today I filmed a video at the studio. In the video I thanked everyone for the overwhelming support of our project, and shared that we were more hopeful than ever that we would reach our goal.

I'm not posting that video right now because it's completely irrelevant. We have to make another video, a better one, in order for us to properly thank you profusely for giving us the ability to make music in this form at this juncture. Did you really just pledge over $30,000 in under 24 hours?

This is mind blowing. It's encouraging to my faith and the calling we feel in music... I think sometimes, while in the trenches of doubt, God reaches down and shows you that you are loved. This is one of those times. Thank YOU so much from everything within me. Your continued support keeps us going.

Now that we've reached our goal, as stated before anything above our goal will go to touring and marketing (like a music video). We'd love to tour the country again, a real, long tour, that hits every area. The more we raise, the more places we can go, and the cheaper the shows tickets will be. We'd love to go to Canada, UK, Europe, Southeast Asia and back to Australia. Those plane tickets are pricey, as well as expenses while we're in those places, but we'd do it just to break even. We'd love to have enough to be able to take our music to places it's never been!

I'm still debating what I'll do if 10% of our Facebook Likers back us (7,434 people). It will be crazy. Help me brainstorm by sending us a message. We have until April 12th!

I love you I love you I love you,

Matt

      Saw you guys two years ago in Lansing, MI. By far the best concert I have ever been to! What a blessing to be a part of your new record. It's only $50, but I hope it goes far!
      You lyrics are so awe-inspiring, and there are so many ways to look at a single line of every song from you guys. Not a single waste of space on any of your albums!
      God Bless you guys, and keep rocking for God!

      We'd love to have you back in Eugene, OR! The last show we saw you anywhere close to us was out in Newport, which is about two hours away, but more than worth it! And it just so happened to be free... we weren't expecting that, but it was cool! (Not saying we want more free shows from you, just you guys. Down here. For and epic show. With a band from the area we like to call This Patch Of Sky. You guys would dig them... just saying..)

      TCC, I just want to let you know something that happened to my friends. They were all going on a mission trip to Ecuador, left today actually, and just 2 weeks ago, still needed $30,000. They raised it in one weekend, by the grace of God. God is so good to people and when I see you got the 30,000 in 24 hours, it was another example of how good God is and how his blessings are numerous. God bless, and I can't wait for the new CD!

      In 2005, I saw you guys play in a little room beneath a cafe in Madison, Wi. It would be really awesome if you came back and played in a bigger venue. I'm so glad you guys see how many people out there love your music. Can't wait for the new album!

      Hey guys, here's an idea another fav band of mine did to get the word out even more... Offer an incentive for fans that spread the word. This band offered a free digital download of a previously unreleased track for those who spread the word to at least ten other people and then notified the band about it. They kept track through facebook somehow. I'm sure you all could figure out something similar... Good luck and I wish you the best in acheiving the 80k goal! I know your backers would love it!

      maybe you should put more money into the album 30,000 is pretty low compared to what I saw other bands pledging.
