Rad. Now that that's done, let us tell you what we want to do. We are planning a Spring 2011 WEST-COAST tour to celebrate the launch of the new EP. We need some startup cash to pay for gas, food, merch (t shirts) and the printing costs for CDs. The Rogue (our tour RV) gets pretty good mileage (and sleeps 5, we hope!) but the reality is that we will not make enough money playing shows to offset the cost of the tour. On a first tour like this, the goal is just to spread the music, play as many places as possible, for as many people, and have fun. For that we need your support, and will be eternally grateful.

If you like the EP, please consider donating a small amount. Or donate a little more for a cool tee-shirt, copy of the CD and other musical adventures. If we get enough friends pitching in, then we'll hopefully be seeing you soon, in your neck of the woods.

EP by The Outdoors, 2010.
Recorded by Sam Bird in the Arizona Desert.
Mixed by Guy Massey in London, UK.
Mastered by Robin Schmidt in Germany.

For the accountants in all of you, here is where your money is going:
$1100 - Pressing 1000 CDs
$1400 - Gas for the RV up and down the coast and east a bit
$900 - Food (for up to 10 days, 5 people)
$600 - Printing Merch (New T-Shirts)
$400 - Covers the cut that goes to Kickstarter and Amazon (5% kickstarter, 1.5-5% amazon depending on transaction type)

A million thanks!

    For this paltry sum, The Outdoors will come to your place to perform and film a guerilla style video (a la the kickstarter video) with you featured as much or as little as you want. It can be your big screen debut or your mysterious Hitchcock cameo. It just needs to happen in 2011 and within 500 miles of our great city of Los Angeles.

    Let the adventure begin!
