Be a part of creating our next album. Pre-order the new album, house parties, songs named after you, and more.

We're hoping to get back in the studio this summer to make our first full length album. We've written a lot of new songs and we're anxious to get them recorded. But without the support of a label, production costs are left up to us and there's no way we can fund the whole project on our own. Thats where you come in.

Here's how it works.

We've set up rewards for different levels of giving and each reward builds upon the previous one, so if you get the $25 package you also receive the $15, $10, and $5 packages (the $150 + $250 are slightly different- see package description). Rewards include shows in your living room, your name in the liner notes as a co-producer, merch-bundles, pre-orders of the new album, and even a song on the new album named after you. Watch the Video (above) and look through the Reward Descriptions (right).

BUT

if we don't reach our goal of $3500 then you will NOT be charged, therefore we won't be able to send you any rewards, and it will probably take us another year of saving to record. We think the world would be a better place with this music in it, so you're basically saving the world by helping produce this record.

We will be going back to Esthudio (Boston, MA) to record, and this time we will be working with Jeremy Mendicino of Pretty & Nice as a producer and engineer so expect a journey into aural beyond.

Remember $3500 is the minimum amount that we need from this campaign, but you can still give even once we've reached our goal which would help us spend more time in the studio, more time in post-production, and produce a better physical package......do I smell vinyl?
