We've been doing this for a while now.
It doesn't feel like we've passed out thousands upon thousands of flyers to current friends who were once strangers. It doesn't feel like we've logged countless miles in a borrowed truck since 2005. It doesn't feel like we've put a record out in each of the last 5 years. But we have.
Time flies when you're doing what you love.
This past summer we recorded a new album. It's called "Tar and Feather". We are very, very proud of it.
We pooled what money we all had on creating this thing over the last few months. Now, to finish it right we are asking you, our family and friends, for help.
To complete this project (mixing, mastering, pressing) and get it out to all of you (touring, promoting) we need to at least raise close to $6,500. You might notice our goal on this page is a bit lower than that. The closer we get to the $6,500 goal though (or God willing, exceeding the goal) the better equipped we will be to let everyone possible in on our dirty little secret (read: we love our music and we hope others will too). Anything we are lucky enough to make above that threshold will go straight into our gas tank when we head back out on tour to promote this thing in 2012. We are very excited to be partnering with Kickstarter to help us in what we believe is a project worth a listen (or ten).
WE CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOU.
We've watched our band grow from an idea, to something we are all very excited about making real. Our intent is to always move forward, and we believe this record pushes State And Madison to places we couldn't have imagined even just a year ago. With your help we can continue pushing this crazy thing full speed ahead. We have always and will continue to do our best to make you proud.
