Will The Walk Ons survive these Economic Times? Only you can decide!

Hey, it's The Walk Ons. We're coming to you straight from our practice space to let you know about our new album and to see if you might be interested in helping to make it happen.

It's been a great couple of years for us. We released “We Did This On Purpose,” garnering some great reviews, radio play and more. We played to a huge crowd at Oktoberfest in Harvard Square and did some fun hometown shows. We purchased and enjoyed many varieties of salty snack foods.

For the past few months we've been readying a bunch of awesome songs and have already recorded much of the new album. We're well on our way to finishing up the tracking, mixing everything and getting it mastered. The thing is, all this costs money, and if you've seen us you'll know – we're not rich men.

Having recorded a bunch of albums before, we've gotten to the point where we really know how to get the biggest bang for our buck cost-wise. We're working again with Dean Rispler and Jesse Cannon, who have produced and engineered our last three discs, and records for a host of other great artists.

Trust us when we say that, if you choose to support us, your money will be well spent.

Since this is Kickstarter, we've come up with all kinds of cool rewards you can earn for pledging something to the cause. Of course, everyone who donates will get a copy of the eventual album. We're also putting together some fun nights out going bowling or playing pinball with the band. We even offer the chance to come into the studio with us, add your voice or handclaps to a track and maybe walk away with one of our instruments. And of course, the ultimate reward: having us write and professionally record a custom song for you (or a cover if you prefer). 

So if you can help us, please pledge some money at the link on the right there, and help us create your next favorite record. Thanks.
