Hello everyone. I'm Dave Smalley. You might know me as the frontman for the Boston-based hardcore band DYS, the singer for Washington, DC, act Dag Nasty, the singer of ALL, and, since 1990, the frontman for skate punk band Down By Law.The time has finally come for me to release material as a solo artist. The creative yearning to do solo work came to fruition earlier this year when I entered Don Zientara's studio in Arlington, Virginia, to record some new material. I was able to lay down 4 tracks: 2 new songs and 2 Dag Nasty covers. Now, I would like to share these tracks and others with the world, but I need assistance from both longtime fans and also new ones to make this dream a reality. I've come up with what I think are some pretty cool benefits for the people who are kind enough to help me out.

Once I've reached my goal and raised enough money to release the new songs, I plan to hit the road and play these songs, and others from my catalog, to the fans that have been with me for so long.

The Kickstarter campaign will go live on December 13th. Please help me reach my goal. Share this with a friend, relative or loved one. I've got thirty days to reach my goal.

I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this. I have the most amazing fans in the world.

Love - Dave
