About this project
As an independent band, we bust our beards to tour the continent and share our music with the world! There is no record label supporting us on the road, or advancing us money to record our music. That means we do this all ourselves! In a few weeks, we begin tracking our 4th studio album, "Lawful Evil"! It's going to be our most unbelievably badass album TO DATE! As we said in our video, "Lawful Evil" will be released whether we reach our goal or not. The money raised from this campaign will allow us to take the album's art, mixing, and mastering to the next level and give it more power than we can give it on our own. Kickstarter also allows us to offer you cool rewards for donating to our campaign!
We want to thank you for checking out our Kickstarter Campaign for "Lawful Evil". Please feel free to share this with your friends, enemies, family, co-workers, neighbors, and local law enforcement. We appreciate your support!

We hit $15,000, so all backers will receive a bonus digital track! This track will be bound by no album, and most likely be filled with historical or pop cultural inaccuracies!
When we hit $20,000 we will not only print "Lawful Evil" on vinyl, but give a copy to all backers who donated at the $200 level or higher! The vinyl edition of "Lawful Evil" will also be available to preorder on our website, once the campaign ends.
When we hit $25,000 we will release "Lawful Evil" as a limited Special Edition double disk album! The second disk will be a DVD full of our music videos, studio antics, and tour debauchery! A hilarious and in depth look behind the scene that has never been revealed before! Everyone that backs at the LAWFUL EVIL level and above will automatically be upgraded to this album and it will also become available to preorder on our website, once the campaign ends.
When we hit $30,000, we will get the heroically talented Mark Gibbons to draw our album cover!! Mark was Lead Concept Artist for World of Warcraft and has created art for Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Hearthstone, League of Legends, and Warhammer. You might have heard of those. Just imagine what he could create for us!
When we hit $40,000, we will film and release a 2nd music video! A 2nd one! We are already planning on releasing one! SPOILERS!! We do not have the budget to go all out on the first video, but with the additional money from this Stretch Goal, we will be able to create a 2nd music video that rivals the production of Queen's Decree!
When we hit $50,000, we will throw a FREE, exclusive CD Release Show in Southern California! This intimate performance will only be available to Kickstarter backers who pledged at the TUNES! level and above. Party times!
When we reach $60,000, we will release a video of us drinking to every single backers honor! Right now, we have 191 backers and are just above $10,000. That's already a beach-ton of shots! It could end up being close to 1,200 shots! We've been training for this our whole lives, so bring it!
Risks and challenges
Lawful Evil is already written and ready to record. In fact, we will begin tracking the album before our campaign is even over! Lawful Evil will be released whether we reach our goal or not, but as this project grows, there is the increasing possibility that certain elements (such as artwork and mixing) will take longer than expected. It's unlikely this will happen, but we want to make sure everything is released with its full, heroic, potential!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
