Panther Car is a rock band from Bozeman, Montana, who have gotten ambitious enough to ask for your money! We need you and a handful of your hard-earned shekels to help see us to the end of our adventure.

We started recording an EP in February at Basecamp Recording in Bozeman (http://basecamprecording.com/). There was a lot of material that we wanted to record, but we decided that a small selection, 5 songs, would be the most realistic goal for us financially. It took two nights to get the basic tracking for the songs out of the way, and a couple afternoons for overdubs. The band was able to pay for this part of the process out of money made from shows. Alas, we still must pay for mixing/mastering and pressing/distribution of these recordings and the vaults of Bank Panther Car have dried up. 

As a backer not only would you get the neat-o prizes you’ll see to the right, but you’ll have those warm, fuzzy feelings in the pit of your food-hole that means you did some good on this miniscule pebble floating around space. Who knows, we might one day fondly reminisce of how you helped finance our first release while being interviewed on VH1 Storytellers?

This will be our first official release as Panther Car and we put a lot of love into these recordings. We care deeply about these songs and want to share this music with everybody! Please help us out in whatever way you can, this can’t happen without you!

Thanks to Blaine Towles and Sanshead for helping us with the video, and of course thanks to everyone who has already supported us! Anyone who has come to a show, given us a kind word, been passionate about local and DIY music, thank you!

Risks and challenges

If our goal isn't reached, we don't receive any of the money pledged. We will still find some way to release our music… eventually and probably while sporting grey hairs, but without you this whole thing is a bust. These songs will sit around in sad, lonely files on Chris Cunningham’s computer with nary an ear to curl up inside of. (Besides Chris's ears obviously, damn those lucky ears!)
