Get your name on our record!

In celebration of 15 years making roots reggae, rocksteady and ska music, we are launching production on our seventh full-length album, a collection of approximately ten to fifteen new songs.

Please help us release this album with a pledge. Be the first to get the new music. You will receive great additional rewards at the higher pledge levels. 

If we reach our goal, we will release the new album in mid-2012 in digital and physical formats. Funds raised will pay for studio time, mixing, mastering, artwork, and production of CD's. If we raise funds above our target, we will consider issuing a vinyl LP release of the new album. 

As a thanks for your pledge, click here to get some of our previously released music.

We sincerely thank you for your support in helping us bring our new project to fruition.

Yours,

Pressure CookerCraig Akira Fujita (lead vocals)
