THANK YOU!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to each and every one of you that have pledged! Lots will be happening in 2013 thanks to you, but this journey is far from over.

We still have 8 more days left to go.

$100,000 will get a lot done, but the more we can raise means more tour dates, more studio time to get the new music just right, special artwork and packaging, more money to promote and advertise the new album, etc.

So, over the next 8 days, please keep spreading the word!
http://kck.st/UKjn0i

To keep things exciting, we've added a special offer and some new rewards!

SPECIAL OFFER!

Anyone that increases their pledge by $25 OR MORE in the time between now and the end of the campaign will receive the backer exclusive shirt! We want to be able to pick you fine folks out of the crowd when we're on tour so we can personally thank you!

      Creator Sarah Erber on November 27, 2012

      The hats are cute! The only reason I did the shirt is to get the signed thank you letter! I am proud to be a part of my favorite band's next journey! I even wrote an essay called Spree-ecstasy. When I has a pretty good bout with depression. The Polyphonic Spree was my drug of choice! The shows would brighten my day or night. The energy in the room after a show was incredible. Backing you is the least I could have done for helping me in a way that you will never know!
