We are so excited about releasing our new, yet unnamed album, that we want to bring you in on it. We have already started recording at Lord Baltimore Studios here in Charm City with producer/engineer Rob Girardi (Beach House, Arbouretum, Celebration) and couldn't be more happy with the work so far. But there is still a long way to go and we need your help to get there. Once we have finished recording the songs in Baltimore, we want to send them to be mixed by Grammy nominated producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith (Meat Puppets, Jet, The Dandy Warhols) out in Austin, Texas. Then the final process is getting the album professionally mastered.
We have already started working on the new album, but because of the extremely high cost of studio time, mixing and mastering, we don't have the funds at hand to complete our vision. That's why we are calling upon you, our fans, to donate to this Kickstarter project and be a part of bringing this record to life. We are taking a break from touring so we can fully devote our efforts to making this our best album yet and then taking it on the road. If you help us reach our goal, we can truly accomplish this.
(Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if we don't meet our funding goal in time no money will be deducted from your account. - But that also means you wouldn't get any gifts!)
In exchange for helping this album become a reality we have a great selection of gifts to send you, first and foremost being a copy of our new album (essentially like a pre-order). The more you donate, the larger the basket of gifts will grow: a limited edition colored vinyl of the new album, a silk screen poster with special thank you from the band and finally the Complete Merch Package with all of our goodies. (Signing is optional for all gifts upon request.)
Who's releasing the record and when?
This album is of course coming out with our ever faithful allies Trip in Time/World in Sound Records. The scheduled release is in May 2013 and Kickstarter backers will be the first to get there hands on this freshly minted album!
(Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions.)

It's very simple. Just sign back into your Kickstarter account and return to "The Flying Eyes New Album" home page. Then, click the blue button near the top right that says "Manage My Pledge". This will take you back to the pledging selection page, where you can either type in a new pledge at the top (adding shipping costs for example) or select a totally new pledge and gift basket if you scroll down!
If we exceed our funding goal by $3,000 or more ($12,500) we will use the extra money to film a high quality music video for a song off the new album. Then, we will send every backer a high quality download of the video before it's released online!
Yes, every band member has equal worth. Just contact us to choose a different Flying Eyes for the date. You can even get two for the price of one if you wish ;)
