Dear Friends, Family, Fans, and Strangers,

As you may know, we are currently planning a tour for this May. We've been on the road as a band a few times before, but this will be our longest trip thus far, and our first outside the western side of the US. We are getting everything together in order to make this the most epic Smooth Sailing tour yet.

Unfortunately in the last month or so, we have found some problems with our trusty van, The Crimson Tide, which have resulted in the need for a new engine. We've decided engine replacement is the most cost effective solution to get us on the road, but we need your help.

In order to get the repairs done, we need to raise $1,500 to get the parts for the job. We setup some sweet little offers to thank you for your help and support. If we can get these repairs done now, it will mean smooth sailing on the road this spring.

Thank you for your help. Hope to see you out on the road in May!

-Smooth Sailing
