Hey Guys! I'm putting together a new record titled 'Everything that is You'. For 14 years my band went by the name 'Mammoth' and it recently underwent a name change to avoid further confusion. It was concerning on our last tour, when our bus mates thought we were going to be a bunch of behemoths from England... So in light of that and among other numerous snafus regarding the name debacle, I've decided to start going by my last name - Thrailkill.
This will be my 9th studio release in the past 6 years. With this change comes a brand new lineup. Our good friend Lang Zhao is stepping in on drums along with our bassist from 'Deviations', Yas Nomura. The record also features a number of guest artists, new and old who have elevated the sound even further. I've always tried to produce something different with each release, so this time I created a conceptual record with a theme that goes through different harmonic variations. To me, the result is incredibly personal, and I hope that the music can convey a message of awareness and appreciation of our short time spent here together.
Risks and challenges
Being an independent band comes with certain financial constraints and that is why help from our fans is integral to the production of new records. Our last Kickstarter for 'Deviations' went wonderfully and funded our mixing and mastering efforts. The success of that campaign (148% of the goal reached) made me gravitate back to this platform. This process has brought an amazing collective of people together from all over the world, so it only makes sense to involve you in its creation as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
