[UPDATE:  Here is an early demo of a song from the album: https://soundcloud.com/the-anatomy-of-frank/leavenworth-wa-demo]

[SECOND UPDATE: Here is a live acoustic rendition of Occupy Anchorage: https://soundcloud.com/the-anatomy-of-frank/occupy-anchorage-live-acoustic]

The Anatomy of Frank are embarking on a historic quest: they will record an album for, and on, every continent on planet earth.  First on their list in North America.  Amidst heavy touring across the northern hemisphere, the band has been writing and refining this work for the past three years, and promises an album beyond anyone's expectations.

They hope to raise at least $15,000 to fund this project.  $9000 of that will go to recording, mixing, and mastering, $5000 to press and print beautiful albums, and the rest will be spent on an interactive promotion campaign that will sneak into people's lives across the globe.  

A demo will be released when an unannounced benchmark is reached in the fundraiser.   

Please peruse the awards the band has schemed up; among them are the beautifully packaged album and goodies, the chance to experience a concert on stage with the band, to have a song recorded for you, to have the band travel to your home and play a concert, and/or to have them sponsor your journey to the farthest reaches of the North American continent.  

Risks and challenges

Making an album never goes exactly as planned, but we are making every effort to ensure that it does this time. Should we be funded, we will pay our producer up front for the costs, and will set ourselves a specific timeframe in which to accomplish the goals. We learned a lot from our first record and, should unlikely delays arise, we will tackle them efficiently to ensure an album release by Fall of 2014.
