Novus Dae has an opportunity to work with Clint Lowery (Sevendust) & Toby Wright (mix-master), but we need your funding help!

Help Novus Dae with Operation: Punchin' the Clown!

Novus Dae has a great opportunity to record the next album with two of the music industry's great talents. But we can only do it with your help.

What is Operation: Punchin' the Clown?

Operation: Punchin' the Clown is the working title for the next album by Novus Dae. No, it's not going to be the real name of the album, it's just the working title. Hey what are you guys working on? Punchin' the Clown.

Why do you need our help?

Novus Dae has two main reasons why they need your help: Clint Lowery and Toby Wright. Clint has a tremendous and well-respected background in the realm of hard rock. He’s played in such bands as Still Rain, Dark New Day, toured with Korn, and of course as a member Sevendust. If you're not in the music industry, you may not know who Toby Wright is, however he's behind a lot of the music you've enjoyed over your lifetime. Korn? Toby. Alice in Chains? Toby. Metallica? Toby. He's worked with a lot of greats.

There are a lot of expenses that go into recording. First there is the studio time of course. But there is also the producer's time and the engineer's time. These are big hurdles for us! As you may know, Novus Dae has always done their own music production. With the opportunity explained above, we felt it was time to try something new.

How do I donate?


What happens if you don't reach your dollar goal?

If the goal is not reached, you don't have to pay and none of the incentives are paid out either. As far as the album - it won't look good...

What happens if you surpass the dollar goal?

That's great! Even after we pay for the above, there are still going to be other costs such as mastering the album, and getting it printed. Those themselves are thousands, and there's even more that goes into it than just those two.


Words cannot express our gratitude enough for giving us the chance to move forward in our careers/dreams/aspirations. Thank YOU! for contributing to something very special to Novus Dae. We simply can't thank you enough.

Thanks everyone,
Ryan G, Tim, Greg, Ryan Thorne
