We've been locked in our practice space for months. We've got a ton of great new songs ready to go, but we need your help to make the album!

Hello Everyone,

We are theWANDAS. We're an independent rock band from Boston, MA USA. We've been touring for the last year and a half on our current album, New Wave Blues; which we've sold thousands of copies of directly to our fans; out of our RV, off our website, on itunes, and in stores.

We have a great new batch of songs ready to record at MIXart studios in Montreal Quebec, Canada. A world class studio where everyone from Santana to the Arcade Fire has recorded. We have such a talented group of people working on this album for little to no money. With everyone's discounted help we're getting over $100,000 value, however we still need to raise a minimum of $10,000 to cover our basic recording, mixing and mastering costs.

We're reaching out to you, our fans, who have been so supportive of us all along. In exchange for your contributions towards our album we are offering you: Our music before anyone else can hear it, a whole batch of limited edition merchandise, vinyl, some of our autographed guitars, and even some amazing opportunities like a weekend camping trip with us in our RV.

So please be as generous as you can an we promise we will continue to work harder than ever and turn out he best music possible.

Cheers, Keith, Brent, Ross & Will - theWANDAS
