About

**Update Oct 8th, 2019: Omygosh ya'll!!! After only 1 day we've funded this project!!! You guys are AMAZING! Seriously, the best fans on the planet. With any extra budget we'll be able to make the vinyl and tees even better. And as an extra treat we've updated the rewards to include a standalone digital download, and are adding 4 extra demo tracks to every reward!**

Our very first album, Eat My Heart Out! It's been VERY out of print on vinyl for several years, and after tons of requests from fans we've decided to reissue it in a SUPER special way for the 15th Anniversary! We're coming back to Kickstarter for this one, and limiting the pressing to only 500 copies - on deluxe picture disc gatefold vinyl!! We're keeping this super simple: you can get the awesome vinyl, get it autographed, or get it with an exclusive t-shirt and buttons!

Eat My Heart Out was originally released on vinyl in 2004 on yellow vinyl, and pressed up again in 2010 on blue (both through Dionysus Records). But we wanted to do something extra awesome for this reissue. So we're super stoked to offer it up now on this awesome deluxe packaging, which will let us showcase ALL of the original album artwork with a totally beautiful picture disc LP!

We're limited the number of packages to keep this more like a preorder - and every single copy includes the following cool stuff!

  • A remastered version of the original album on amazing picture disc vinyl
  • A digital copy of Eat My Heart Out, including alternate studio versions of 3 tracks, plus 3 B-sides not included on the original vinyl release
  • Packaged on deluxe gatefold vinyl, featuring the original "gameboard" liner note artwork with lyrics and other fun details

Vinyl is spendy to manufacture, and this is a DIY all-or-nothing funding goal, but we know our fans will make it happen! If we surpass the initial goal we'll think of ways to make the final products even better, and pass along the awesomeness to our backers. If we hit the goal early we'll get it on the presses sooner, but given manufacturing lead times we're probably looking at an early January ship date. And remember... we're offering FREE shipping to domestic fans, which is built into the cost for each package. We extend that in a way to our international peeps by subsidizing the shipping cost to make it as affordable as possible!

They say that you have your whole life to write your first album, and some of these songs were swirling around in our heads since we met back in middle school. It all came together after we moved to LA in 2002, where the songs formed in tiny punk clubs and sweating it out in our Downtown rehearsal spot. We finally recorded EMHO at Capitol Records Studio B in 2003, released it on our own label locally, then got picked up by Lookout Records for a 2004 national release. That was the beginning of years on the road and another 6(!) albums. But all this time later it's a lot of fan's favorite Dollyrots record, and we can't disagree. Some of y'all have grown up with it. We totally have.

Thanks for everyone that's been a fan since this one came out, and thanks to everyone that's come along since! Cannot wait to have Eat My Heart Out on wax again!!

Risks and challenges

The good thing about this project is... we already have the album recorded! So it's a little different than a normal album project in that way. We will, however, have to take into account vinyl manufacturing timelines and shipping, some of which we won't have control over. We'll for sure make every effort to get all our backers their vinyl as soon as possible!
