Who wants a brand skankin’ new album? Well that’s why you’re here now isn’t it? The OC Supertones have been hard at work this entire last year, and the time has now come to put out our best, most fun, high energy, creative, encouraging, Spirit-filled, God glorifying, danceable, singable ska album we’ve ever done!!! That’s right kids… this album will be 100% certifiable grade-A ska. Most of the songs are either already written or at least close to done, and let me tell ya… we have NEVER been this excited about a Supertones album. It’s like we all took some good healthy time off from the band, got re-focused, and came back with the best stuff yet!

Just a couple years ago in 2010, the original 4 members (Mojo, Jason, Tony, and Chief) got back together for a short summer reunion tour with NO intention of doing anything else.  But somehow there was such a great response and so many people were being encouraged and ministered to, that we decided to keep the door open and play a few more shows. One thing led to another, and about a year and a half ago, God started giving inspiration and creativity to Mojo and Tony (the main songwriters). We all knew right away that this was the next missional season in the life of the band. And why wouldn’t we share this gift with the world?

We talked about what kind of album we wanted to make. Words like fun, exciting, energetic, life-changing, and yes, ska. We make no apologies. We are going back to the roots of what started this band. We’re not trying to be arty, emo, or sophisticated on any level… we want to make the greatest ska album of all time (At least we’ll give it a shot)! But most of all, we wanted to put out a distinctively Christ-centered album. Like every show, every album, and every thing we’ve ever done, the Supertones mission statement is to reach the lost with the hope of Christ, and to build up and encourage the Church. And that is exactly what we intend to set out to do. We believe that this album will be the most encouraging in your relationship with God that we’ve ever done.

Our goal is $30,000. But seriously, that's not even going to come close to what it will take. We definitely are going to need a lot more than that to pull this project off, but we want to put an attainable number to meet the strict 100% funding goals of Kickstarter. If you see that we've met the goal, KEEP PLEDGING! Every penny is going to make this the absolute best project possible. Dream with us! Can you imagine how many lives this album could reach? Lord willing, this album will be a ministry tool to reach as many people as possible! Check out what Ephesians 3:20 says: "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."  We're calling on the Lord to let these verses define what this album does! 

We heard about this Kickstarter idea about a year ago, and we started making plans for a new album. Since then, we’ve seen several of our buddies making Kickstarter albums also- which is awesome! We love the concept of Kickstarter: the fans are the ones that make the album happen. The Supertones have always been about connecting with people and how cool will it be to know that YOU were a part of this journey. YOU made it happen. YOU are partners with us! And YOU are the best fans on the planet… hands down!!!

We also tried to make our campaign unique and super fun, with plenty of ways to connect with the band on some level. So whether it means you get a limited edition T-shirt, sing "gang vocals" with us, or we teach you how to surf, …we’re excited about this!

When you donate to this project, you won’t just be receiving a great album, some cool merchandise, or possibly a lifetime memory… but you’ll also be investing into the ministry that God has given us: to preach the Gospel, reach your heart, and SKA SKA SKA SKA!!!

And here's what you've all been waiting for.... and we've been super excited to give to you!  Please enjoy (and SHARE!) our first new recorded song in over 8 years!......     "ON THE DOWNBEAT"  http://noisetrade.com/ocsupertones
