We cherish our fans, the music we have created, and the place we have earned in the history of progressive rock music. It is painful and disappointing that the very record labels who still happily profit from selling our extensive catalog of albums (from which we receive little if any royalties) have turned their backs and closed their doors to us in favor of working with quick-selling pre-packaged pop.
We have been busy composing songs for an album we believe will be the best of our career. Thanks to Kickstarter, social media, lovers of good music, and our own wonderful fans, we're able to reach out directly to make available our album in advance of it's commercial release as well as other special items which will support the recording, promotion, marketing and distribution of this, our first studio album in nearly twelve years: Grandine il Vento.
For your pledges you will receive an album we're sure you'll love, as well as enabling us to make our music with pride and independence from the world of corporatized record companies.
We appreciate the role you will play in helping to make this endeavor a reality.
