We are a psychedelic rock band from Baltimore, recording our next album, and we need your help!

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.

Why Kickstarter?

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!)

Rewards

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.)

  • 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!
