What more can be said? A vinyl reissue of Fifteen - Surprise! Been out of print for years, I wanna bring it back! One of my favorite bands ever, this record, and all the other Fifteen stuff, changed my life! What better way to honor Fifteen and this record, lets reissue it! This band had a huge following, not sure what it is these days. In my opinion, this band, this record, its right up there for me with the best. Seriosuly, this means the world to me. I wanna share it with all the other folks who love Fifteen. This will be a vinyl reissue, remastered, new art (the art is what was supposed to be originally used!), insert, colored vinyl, limited to 500 or so (broken down into 3 colors, which are still to be determined). By backing this project, you will be showing what this band means/meant to you in a small way I guess, lets have fun. Pledges raised wont go for nothing! What you pledge, you will get a reward/incentive in return. Whether that be one record, multiple records, record with something else (button, sticker, patch), test press, etc. I want this to be fun, whether or not the ultimate goal is reached, this record is gonna see the light of day...i promise (along with some other Fifteen releases, but those wont be done via kickstarter, this is the only one that will be shared through this avenue) Basically, the backing pledges will help pay for lacquers, mastering, actual vinyl itself, labels, full color jackets, and inserts! The goal will be $2000, if it goes over, great, that will just make the release even better, ill make it happen!

Please note - if the goal is reached by June 20 15:15 (thats 3:15pm on west coast), this record will be done sometime in the summer ready to ship (August/Spetember)! also, along with the record, a portion of the eventual sales will go to two organizations of jeff's choice to benefit and help them out.
I'm curious, what has Fifteen meant to you? Please share, i'd love to know! Good ole' East Bay Punk! Yeah! :)
