About this project

We have a 3rd record written and ready to record! In the past we would record as we go.. making "demos" that ended up becoming the record. This time around we wanted to approach things differently. Let the songs just exist in a room the same way we wrote them, then go in with that energy and get them down start to finish. These new songs have the energy and rawness of No Name No Color but with the dark cloud that hung over a lot of the songs on Pick Up Your Head.

We also felt like coming directly to the people who love this band made the most sense for what we want to do in the future. As you know, this process costs money. Studio time, engineer, mixing, mastering, production of physical copies, etc. If we're going to be obligated to anyone, we want it to be ourselves and the people who support this band.

If we reach our goal, we'll be hitting the studio in October to start tracking. If we don't... we will NOT be hitting the studio in October to start tracking. Thanks in advance to anyone who becomes a part of this process. It's next to impossible to survive just playing music. The fact that there are people out there who buy our records; come to our shows, let our music become a part of their lives and continue to want MORE is not something we take for granted.

-MCRut

Risks and challenges

Hard part is done, the songs exist. Once we're able to get into the studio, the machine will come to life and everything else falls into place. Sooner we have a new record, sooner we're able to find our way back to a stage.
