Since the release of our last album To End the Illusion of Separation (T.E.T.I.O.S.), life has been nothing short of a rip-roaring ride through time and space. With hundreds of shows, and tens of thousands of miles under our belts, we decided to kick off 2015 by retreating to the quietness of the woods and snow in order to finally record our 4th full-length studio LP.
Unlike all previous albums, the tracks set aside for this release have never been heard. We felt it was time to not simply release yet another compilation of songs we had debuted live, but rather, take the time to craft and curate an expansive collection of music that was written over the course of 2 years and recorded in 2 months in a studio we put together outside of Asheville, NC. Now, thanks to Kickstarter - our friends and fans have a unique opportunity to be a part of the final stages of production of the release, which will include a host of music videos as well as new platforms for listening including our first ever vinyl pressing.
As the project unfolds, the goal is to not only to meet these new benchmarks of one-of-a-kind memorabilia to commemorate this amazing moment in our journey as a band, but also effectively facilitate an independent, world-wide release of this deep-space exploration of art and sound. This piece marks the pinnacle of 9 years of incredibly hard work, touring and dedication and to have it backed by our amazing and ever-growing fan-base whose love and support has continued to make all this possible is a dream come true. Technologically and philosophically speaking, it's clear that there's no better way at this time to share this effort with world than through each other. At the minimum it serves as a reminder of how much we are capable of, and at the maximum - time will tell.
We are so incredibly excited to add this album to the Papadosio collection. We cannot ever thank you all enough for everything you have done for us and we'll see you on the other side.
Special thanks to Telefunken Elektroakustik for letting us try their amazing microphone package and the New Earth House of Muziq in Asheville, NC for letting us film and record this project in their space.
Risks and challenges
At this point, the album is tracked and mixed and is being sent off for mastering. The only real risks and challenges on the horizon include completing and paying for the production of the final products (vinyl, USB, CD's, music videos) before the album release and tour this fall. The projected timeline to complete all this is 3 months, and we have given ourselves some extra time if anything comes up.
Other challenges will include working out the logistics of the special performance rewards. These will be worked out on a case by case basis and we suggest posting a question in the FAQ if you have any.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
