We are very excited to offer you this latest release by The Poor Nobodys! Our third studio album, Ink no Ink, started coming together two years ago in our space in NE Minneapolis. We have always intended this collection of songs to be on vinyl and we're turning to you to make it possible.

If you know you want a copy of the album, you can consider this Kickstarter campaign as a pre-order and a way to help us cover the costs to finish up production.  We have all of our songs recorded, mixed and mastered.  They are just waiting to be pressed to vinyl.  Your donations will cover the cost of pressing the album and coming up with some great album artwork to print on the cover.

WE'RE RELEASING ALL OF OUR MATERIAL

Not only are we excited about this release, but we're proud of the rewards too! Everything we're offering as a thank you for donating has been created by the band in the last three years: all of our full-length film scores and collections of unreleased music.

We came about most of this music in a more collaborative way than previously- each of us writing and contributing.  Almost everything was recorded at our space in Northeast Minneapolis, engineered and mixed by Paul Flynn.  We also had a weekend session at The Library Recording Studio, also in NE.  Over the course of those two years, we picked up a few projects composing original film scores and working with local filmmakers as well as working with local theatre companies. This not only influenced the sound of our music, but offered a new approach to arranging our material.

Thank you for your continued support and for donating to our Kickstarter campaign!

Risks and challenges

We will try our hardest to get the album and your rewards to you in a timely manner. We're putting a lot of trust in our collaborators, and are confident the process of finishing up this album will go smoothly. We realize that all of our supporters (you!) are depending on us to get them this music as quickly as possible! Thank you for your patience should issues arise.
