Hello everyone. So here we are 13 years after the last release with the original lineup. We are currently finishing up the new record (yet to be titled) with the incredible producer Cameron Webb (Social Distortion, Pennywise, Nofx, Alkaline trio and KELLY CLARKSON!!!) 

As you all know MEST has been independent for years and we are choosing to keep it that way. At this point in our career having the bands fate in our hands makes the most sense to us. The business has changed drastically over the past decade and with the business changing so does how bands operate. We have decided to do this record and release it on our own because we believe its the best thing for MEST. 

This comes with A LOT of out of pocket costs. This is where you the fans, come in.  We want to provide some cool rewards for helping get this record done. For those who don't know what goes into the making of a record it first starts with (in this case) a couple years of writing songs. The pre-production, then the search for a producer, locking in a producer, studio time, flights, tracking the record, re-tracking- more re-tracking, then when we finally finish, mixing, mixing and more mixing. Then sometimes back in for more tracking haha. Also their is promotion, marketing, videos, the list goes on.

 We want to do this right. And we want to do this with you guys. So pick a reward, copy the link and encourage other MEST fans to help get this record out. WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU GUYS!! So lets make this happen and get this record finished!! THANKS FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS!! 

Last thing to mention, we do have a stretch goal in this campaign. If we reach 175k we will immediately release another record for free to everyone that bought a reward!! 

Risks and challenges

The only risk is if we don't raise enough money the record will unfortunately be delayed, Help spread the word by copying and pasting the link on your social media pages.. THANK YOU!! MEST
