We are a band from Philadelphia, PA. We self-released our debut LP, "Like Thieves..." on CD in 2008. We completed recording on our new EP, "Fractals" late in 2010, and have since released it digitally through outlets including iTunes, Bandcamp and Amazon.com.

Many of us are avid vinyl collectors and have a deep appreciation for the medium. For us, it is a dream to have something that we created be etched into vinyl and, hopefully, enjoyed by others on their home turntables.

Unfortunately, vinyl pressing can be quite pricey... and with all of the money we spent on recording, mixing and mastering the EP, we are exploring every avenue possible in order to find the capital to press it. That's where you and Kickstarter come in.

The hard work is done, the music is recorded, mixed (by Jeff Zeigler) and mastered (by Fred Kevorkian). We have some awesome artwork by our friend Matt Zugale.

Some of the limited edition rewards we're offering are exclusive to this Kickstarter project and will not be available after the funding period ends!

*FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Please add an additional $5 to your pledge if you would like us to ship the EP and any other physical items to you outside of the US.
