 You are our collective record label

In 2012, we launched our first Kickstarter campaign and you helped us successfully raise $1,363 of our $1,000 goal.

In 2015, we launched our second Kickstarter campaign and you helped us successfully raise $10,848 of our $10,000 goal.

Since then, we've gone on tour with Reel Big Fish, completed two tours with the Vans Warped Tour, and embarked on several national headlining tours. We found our niche in music festivals and have grown a love for the road. We've sold thousands of albums, shirts, and merchandise around the world. You've streamed and downloaded our music hundreds of thousands of times.

This is your opportunity to become a part of our collective record label to fund our third studio album. All it takes is a pre-order on this Kickstarter and sharing this link with your friends!

Funding timeline and goals

The initial goal of $100,000 is what it will take to produce, master, market, manufacture and distribute the new album. We can do a whole lot more with more funding, including new merchandise, new gear, a crucial in-ear monitor (IEM) system, the ability to hire crew for the road, and new music videos to accompany the new songs.
