Time and Space, is the full length debut album by Los Angeles based progressive rock band Lobate Scarp.  This ambitious album, which took nearly five years to record is sure to please fans of the progressive rock genre as well as music appreciators that are looking for something fresh for their ears. The album has over 55 minutes of original tunes, including the 15 1/2 minute title track. 

The beautiful front cover of the album is an original piece by world-renowned space illustrator, David A. Hardy. He also designed the Lobate Scarp logo and insignia (inscribed on the spaceship). Wouldn't you buy this if you saw this on the shelf of your favorite music store? :

The funds we receive from Kickstarter will go toward mixing, mastering, and manufacturing the CD as well as MP3 download cards.  The rest will help us promote the album though online channels like Facebook as well as through various publications and billboards.

The public release date of Time and Space will be 12-12-12, all Kickstarter backers of $20 or more will getting it nearly a month early in mid-Novemeber. And all Kickstarter pledges from $25 and on will get a free ticket to our CD Release Show (date TBD).

The release of this album will allow us to take our live show on the road, something we are very excited about.

 Here's a couple of numbers from a recent show:

We have put so much love into this project and we are determined to get this music out to those who will love it as much as we do. With your help, all of this will be possible.

Thank you,

Lobate Scarp.
