For the past couple of years we’ve been writing, recording and putting the final touches on the 22 songs that make up “The 4th Wall” Double-Disc album. This is our first major release since leaving our record label and we’re happy to have produced, what we feel, is our best sounding album yet.  While Hip Hop has been our main vehicle, we’ve always been passionate about incorporating all of our influences into our sound. And after years of nurturing that approach, “our sound” has really matured into something that we think showcases the same amount of heart that we put into the music while still stretching what we can do creatively.  Like our albums before it, we self-produced The 4th Wall with a lot of care here in Orlando, enlisting the help from some amazing people like, Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Blueprint (rhymesayers entertainment), Beef Wellington, X:144 (who mixed the album), and a handful of truly talented musicians that we met while touring the world. [See below for a full track listing of The 4th Wall and a music video and MP3 from the album!!]

The Conclusion of The Listener’s Trilogy

In addition to the pleasure we’ve gotten from creating this music, The 4th Wall also marks a milestone for us as the conclusion of an even bigger project we call, “The Listener’s Trilogy."  In a nutshell, The Listener's Trilogy is a collection of three albums that expresses how important the listener’s role is in the success of a movement.  The Trilogy started with our first official release “As if We Existed” and continued on with “No More Heroes."  Throughout the making of these albums, we have been dropping clues in the music, artwork, and videos about the subtler theme, and details of The Listener's Trilogy. We're really excited about this double-disc because everything is tied up and fully explained in The 4th Wall.  The conceptual groundwork for these albums goes deep.  Numerology, science, and symbolism are all playing parts, along with concepts borrowed from the theater world to drive the point home.  We do this because we love it.  More specifically we love providing an experience for the listener that goes as deep as the experiences that inspires our music.  We know there are fans out there that appreciate the details as much as we do.

The music for the double-disc album is complete and ready to go!  All we need is your help in funding its release. Your contributions will help us package and distribute The 4th Wall, as well as create a special Limited Edition Box Set of the ENTIRE Listener's Trilogy!  The completion of The 4th Wall and the Trilogy is a huge deal for us, and we want to celebrate by creating our most elaborate packaging so far.  We are planning a very special 24-page book packed with photos, lyrics, Swamburger’s original artwork and all the revelations about the Trilogy we’ve been dying to share with you since all of this started.  You can also get instrumental versions of The Listener's Trilogy, and for the first time ever, we're able to offer THE ENTIRE SOLILLA CATALOG on a flash drive as a reward!! This has been a dream of ours to offer to our fans from the very beginning.  HELP US MAKE THIS DREAM COME TRUE!

See yourself as part of The 4th Wall, literally!

Throughout our lives as Solillaquists, we’ve always included the fans into our creations as much as possible.  Now that we are no longer dealing with record labels, we have an even greater opportunity to do so.  For this project we are not only turning to our fans to help fund the packaging and distribution of this album, but we also want to incorporate your beautiful faces in our artwork.   All Backers will not only get the album but will also get their picture incorporated in to the artwork of “The 4th Wall”.  The more pictures of our fans that we get, the cooler the artwork will be.  So please don’t be shy, share your smiles with us!!!! Please submit pictures to awareness@solilla.com with the subject “I am the Listener”.

Thank you for your continued support and for helping us prove that record labels don't hold all the control, The Listeners do.

Please spread the word to as many Listeners as you can!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

LOVE

Risks and challenges

The album is already mixed, mastered, and sequenced. Once we meet our goal it's just a matter of ordering the CDs and mailing them out!

We are going through a reputable disc manufacturer and have already been sent examples of what the packaging will look like. We are very happy with the quality of what we have been sent. The company has also assured that production will go smoothly and the turn around will be relatively quick (about a week from the start of production).

We are a largely self sustained operation and have been so for over a decade. The only other collaborators in the completion of this project (besides the fans) will be the disc and flash drive manufacturers. Even if something were to happen to one of these companies, there are hundreds of other options for us to go through. So risk is at an absolute minimum.
